    Can we position conditional fields in strict table order?

    Asked by Bob Matthews  on September 21, 2016 at 09:56 AM

    I created a form with conditional fields - October Menu.  THere are two rows, with 5 columns each, with radio buttons in each row with a yes or no possibility.  I would like for each element in the second row to be conditional on the field value above.  I set this up. and it works but the positioning of the elements in the second row seem to be left aligned instead of keeping the alignment with the element above.  When i set the value on row 1 column 3  to a yes, the element on row 2 column 3 should be visible directly under row 1 column 3.  Instead, it becomes visible but moves to row 2 column 1.  Is there CSS that would apply to entire form that would make this work?  Thanks, Bob

    Unfortunately, it seems to be not possible to position the form fields in that way with our layout and conditions implementations. The only work around I can think of is a modified form source code with the row 2 fields in added layout containers.

    Note, that you will need to host modified form source code yourself.
