    Display different text based on selected option

    Asked by naprafe on May 07, 2016 at 03:24 AM

    I have two scenarios as a possible outcome in my form, A and B. I want to add a button, that when pressed it will show me text C or D depending on the outcome.

    Do you mean to show different texts based on the selection on your JotForm? It is possible by adding some conditions to display appropriate option on our JotForm as shown below.

    Please see the demo form below:


    You may clone the form to your account to see how it works.

    Hope this information helps! Let us know if you are referring to something different. We will be happy to help.

    Thank you very much for your reply. In the following form: https://form.jotformeu.com/61275263357357 i first insert a value and then the message appears. I want to insert a value, then press a button (something similar to the submit button) and then see the message.

    A way around this could be using a Button Checkboxes widget: http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/button_checkboxes
