    I want to get two different messages depending on the date that is put in

    Asked by jarvan on February 28, 2016 at 10:47 AM

    If someone puts in a birth date that is more than 21 years I want the submit button (I have this working) but if the date is less than 21 years I want a "sorry" message. I would also like to get a read this message with an "I agree" or have scrolled through this message before being able to enter birth date. Thanks.

    You can simply add a Text field to your form that will contain your "sorry" message:

    Then simply add another show condition that will show this Text field when the date of birth is not before 21 years.

    If birth date is after today - 7669, show "sorry" message

    You can also make your message appear in red, by double-clicking inside the Text field, marking the text, and using the font color option:

    It will result in the following:
