    How to create conditions by using fields in configurable list widget?

    Asked by megavado on May 15, 2016 at 03:20 PM

    Hi. I'm creating a form and i'd like to use Configurable List. I want to add some Conditionals to the fields and i want that: when the user click on ADD more it creates the fields with the same conditions. Is it possible?


    This is a re-post of a comment on How to Set Up the Configurable List Widget

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to apply Conditions on specific fields of the Configurable list, since it is a widget and it works differently than a regular field. 

    Could you please describe what would you like to do so we can try to find a workable solution for you?

    Thank you!

    I Nick, 

    Thanks for you answer. I will try to explain my need (sorry bad english)

    I'm building a form and i want to add some fields with conditionals like that

    Field A and Field B

    Field C and Field D

    Fields A and C are dropdown fields (contains abraviations) and B and D are textarea (contain the meaning of correspondent A or C). When the user select an option on a dropdown field the meaning appears on a textarea field. I just did that. The problem is: there are many fields, some of that with the same options. In this case i must creat conditions for all fields, even for the repeating fields.

    So i'd like one way the apply (by copying) the conditions of a field to another field.



    My form URL: https://form.myjotform.com/61277322149556

    In the Conditions editor, there is option to duplicate conditional statement.


    Unfortunately, since you cannot use a widget for your form requirement, you will need to use this option instead.

    Just in case you want to do conditional calculations on a table like fields, the Matrix table field is actually capable of having calculation conditional statement.
