    How to add condition to show hide form fields?

    Asked by asifjamilakhtar on August 16, 2016 at 08:24 AM

    I need to hide fields on page 11 Precision units.

    I want that when I check the field "essentials" only "please specify essentials" showup while "please specify recommended" stays hidden. I also need to know how it works? Every time I do it I have to spend a full day with hit and trial strategy. Can u please elaborate the working please?

    Hello asifjamilakhtar,

    You just need to just add one condition to check if the "essentials" is checked, show field "please specify essentials" and one another condition to check if "RECOMMENDED" is checked then show "please specify recommended". It is not required to explicitly add condition to hide field in case if you condition to show the same field. Please check the screenshot below for condition which I added in a cloned form:


    Please take a look at the following cloned form where I added the condition:  https://form.jotform.com/62283876478977  Feel free to clone this form for a closer look. The following guide should help you in form cloning:  https://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-clone-an-existing-form-from-a-URL 

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
