    How can I show different number of text boxes depending on the previous answer?

    Asked by cardstory on March 11, 2012 at 03:46 PM

    Hello! What I'd like to do is to show different number of text boxes. If a person puts 5 in a field 'number of invitation' then 5 fields for typing in names appear. If a person puts 10, then 10 fields appear.

    Is there any way to do it? I have tried conditions and form collapse tool but I haven't succeed. I hoped to do it in this way. If a person types in 5, then show form collapse with 5 text boxes. If a peron types in 10, then show form collapse  with 10 text boxes. So there should be a lot of collapse forms containing different number of boxes. And all of them should be hidden completely exept one. For some reason if I choose hidden and closed in form collapse  preferences I still can see the first text boxes from each collapse form.
