    Is there a way to only display SOME contents in a dropdown when a radio button is selected?

    Asked by Puliz on February 22, 2016 at 02:28 PM

    I have a location radio button and I want to display all the contents of a dropdown if one location is chosen, but only a few if the other location is chosen.  Is that possible?

     

    Thanks!

    You can easily achieve this using Show/Hide Conditions and multiple Dropdown list.

    Here is an example form https://form.jotform.com/60526905405958

    You can check the video below how I set it up

     

    You can also clone my form so that you can review it on your Form Builder

    I believe the lack of field labels was causing some issues with the conditions.  I recreated the same ones you had in your form and they look to be working properly in mine copy:

    Looks good, but when I choose Reno and go to pull the dropdown nothing happens.  Is it browser specific?

    It looks to be due to the rather small margins on the top and bottom of the field.  If you click near the top of the field, it works without issue. 

    Adding a bit of a margin to the bottom of the dropdowns allows it them be more accessible:

    .form-dropdown {
        margin-bottom : 10px;
    }

    Yeah, that seems to work better.  Is that my form or your sample?  Can I copy that info to mine?
