    I have problems with "hidden" fields

    Asked by nembankbox on August 03, 2016 at 12:08 PM

    1: Could you ADD "form fields" to your HTML text pad, so it is more easy to ADD a field

    2: Why my form will not hide the fields, I have said to hide?

    You need to re-calibrate your conditions:

    1) First of all, set your fields to show:

    2) Required all your fields:

    3) Delete all your conditions except of the last one:

    4) Now, let's ask ourselves what fields do we want to show if certain selection is made?


    If "Fixed price" is selected, I guess you want to show Agreed fixed price for the work and Total Fixed cost of agreement.

    Let's create the condition for it:


    If "Hourly basis" is selected, show:

    Hourly wage

    How many hours

    Total hourly cost

    Total Hourly cost of agremment

    Lets create the condition:

    Thanks, now I got it to work... more simple.

    But what should I choose, if I dont want the field to have a value in the submissions?
    I have tried to enable field with "Disable", but it still saved the value from the field.

    So if a field like "fixed price" is filled, I want the other fields from Hourly to be "deleted" in the submissions.

    I am assuming that you are receiving values from hidden fields that you do not wish. To clear the values of the hidden fields, just enter the preference setting.

    Under the advance tab, press the button MORE OPTION. This will enable you to see more feature. At the very bottom you can find the CLEAR HIDDEN FIELDS VALUE. This feature will clear the value of all the hidden fields.

    Thanks, didn't see that before :)

    I have another problem.

    I found this widget, but I need to calculate: total amount - deposit amount. So it will not go over the maximum amount in the fields. How can I do this, because I need the multi-fields, but I also need to calculate the fields.
