Conditional Logic when, dropdown 'is not' empty value?

  1. Hi, I have a form with a 'Country' dropdown. It's required, but I don't want to pre-select a country (for political reasons) so I have 'Please Select' as the first option, and this option has no value. This seems to work to make the country required if the user leaves it at 'Please select'.

    great..
    But! I then want the rest of the address fields to be conditional based on this selection, so I have set 'Street Address', 'Town' and 'Postcode' to only show when 'Country' is NOT showing 'Please Select'. This doesn't work.

    If I switch off Country 'required' it works.
    If I add a value to the 'Please Select' option of 'Country' it works, but it always then passes the required check.

    Any ideas? Cheers!

  2. Ben,
    It looks like you found a bug on Gravity Forms. The problem is that the conditional logic is making the comparison against the text and not the value of the selected item. I will be looking at this and will send you an update as soon as I have it (probably tomorrow). One solution users have used in the past is to leave the first drop down item blank. Not just the value, but the text as well.
