    How to conditionally show error message on the form?

    Asked by davidgrayvideos on October 08, 2016 at 04:31 AM

    I have 2 date fields successfully working to determine the age of a customer.

    However, if the customer is under 18 years old I want the text to show they are underage and hide the submit button. I can work out it all expect I don't know which condition/calculation to use to display the underage text.
