    How hide/show fields in form by using conditions?

    Asked by aricurn on September 28, 2016 at 05:18 AM

    I received some advice about adding parameters into the hidden fields in my pet online registration form for a vet practice, but I am SO confused by the instructions and the fields that I have added in (for Pet 2 and Pet 3) are not hidden so my form looks very messy with 5 parameters (as shown with bullet points) not hidden

    Would you like to add another pet?

    yes no

    Pet 2 Sex:

    Male Female

    Pet 2 Neutered:

    Yes No

    Pet 2 Microchip Number (if known):

     

    Pet 3 Sex:

    Male Female

    Pet 3 Neutered

     

    - please help with this

     

    Many thanks

    Hello,

    I think you did not define conditions for the fields that are not hidden. 

    Also have a look at the introduction to conditionals under the heading smart forms.

     

    I hope this helps,

    All the best.

    I checked your form and I see what is the problem.

    You had conditions created, but then, I assume, you did some changes on your form so your conditions broke. Also in order for those conditions to work properly you have to hide all fields that are included in conditions:

    And that will work as intended.

    If you don't mind, I fixed your conditions and all those fields so please check and let us know how it works for you.

    Thank you!
