    You can use the Radio Buttons and Text Box in order to achieve this. You just need to drag it to the form.

    Let us know if you need any help. Thank you.

    Thank you for your reply, but as the 2 fields (Pet 2 and Pet 3) are hidden fields; if I just drag the radio buttons, then they do not remain hidden?

    Not sure how to add them in as hidden fields for Pet 2 and Pet 3?

    Thank you

    I understand what you mean. You need to add the newly inserted fields in the existing conditions. Here's a guide:

    1. Click the "Conditions" button in the toolbar.

    2. Select the condition and then click the "edit" icon.

    3. You need to add a "Do-Field" statement by clicking the "+ /plus/add" icon.

    4. Select the "Show" option in the "Do" drop down. After that, choose "Pet 2 Sex" in the "Field" drop down.

    5. You need to add 3 more conditions for the "Pet 2 Neutered and Pet 3 options".

    Hope this helps. Let us know if you need further assistance. Thank you.

    As I understood, you would like to make a dynamic form according to user selection. For example, if the user does not want to add any other pet , you do not want to show pet 2 and pet 3 details, but if the user want to add another pet, these fields will show up. 

    If this is thing what you want, please follow below steps. 

    1.  First of all, it would be better to use radio field to allow your user to select only one option from multiple selections. For example, if you use checkbox field for "pet sex field " , the user can select both male/female options together.  So, I suggest you to change Sex and Neutered fields from checkbox to radio for all pet1, pet2 and pet3 parts. This is not a must to achieve what you want but it is a better way of collecting data at your will. 





    2. Now, you need to set your condition for the second, the third pet and no additional pet selections. 

    - Click Condition Icon on the top menu 



    - Click Show/Hide Field 



    Configure your condition as shown below for no additional pet situation. 





    Configure your condition as shown below for selection of adding a second pet. 






    Configure your condition as shown below for selection of adding a third pet. 






    You may also need to have a look following guidance about conditions.

    After applying this arrangement on your form, fields will be shown or hided according to user selections. 

    Hope, these would help you but please note that you can always contact us for any issue you may have or need any other support by us.
