    Hi

    How do I display a text string in a text box if some condition is met.

    Let say my text box is called "Event Date"

    I will  insert the condition in my form as follows:

    If "Seminar Title" is Equal to "Creating Abundance" (for example)

    Display "26th May 2016" into Event Date

    Basically I want to populate "Event Date" with the date of the seminar based on the Seminar Title selected.

    Do you want to populate a date field? If so, you can do it this way:

    1. Add a new DateTime field in the form and set the default date to May 26, 2016.

    2. Add a conditional logic to copy this new date field to the target DateTime field when seminar title is equal to your desired value. Here's a sample condition that you should add:

    Note that you can simply hide some fields that you don't want to show up in the live form view.

    I'm sorry for misunderstanding your question. To populate a textbox with a date, you can just do it this way:

    1. Assuming that you already have the textbox in the form, simply add the following condition:

    Make sure that you've added the value as a text. It should be in light brown background.  

     

    You can see the output in the test form that I've shared in my first reply.
