    How can I hide several fields until a condition is met?

    Asked by jklemme on July 24, 2016 at 01:56 AM

    In my form titled "Document Submission & Commission Request", I have set up several conditions which all only certain parts of the form to be seen depending upon the type of a transaction that is selected.  This works well.  However, it would be ideal if everything below the "Transaction Type" field were hidden until a transaction were selected.  Then, those fields that are associated with transaction selected would appear.  Can you please help?

    If you want to hide everything below the "Transaction Type" field, if none of that field option is selected, then add one additional condition to your form that will hide all field below "Transaction Type" field if that field is empty.

    Here is my cloned form where I set mentioned condition: https://form.jotform.com/62051647002949 

    Feel free to clone it.

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
