Custom Filter to display a custom form field

    I am going to try my best to explain what I am doing.

    I want to create a two page form.

    One page one, I am going to have a field for the user to fill out.
    One page two I want to dynamically display different options for a field based on the value on page one. I can't use the conditional logic built in based on the type of field that is on page one.

    Is there a way I can use a custom filter (in functions.php) asking... If value of "input_17_1" = "myvalue" then field on page two (input_17_2) is theseoptions, else theseoptions2.

    If input_17_1 = myvalue

    input_17_2 = theseoptions
    else
    input_17_2 = theseoptions2

    Hope that makes sense. I have successfully changed confirmation emails based on a selected value but am trying to change field options on a second page based on a value on the first page.

    Here is a hook for grabbing the page change:

    That might help you with things. You could copy the value to a hidden field on page two and use conditional logic then to give you what you want.

    Thanks! Do you know of a page that has an example of the above being used? I'm not the best with coding but can follow examples and kinda hack it together from there :)

    Thanks

    Sorry, I don't have any examples beyond the documentation. Look through the gform_pre_render documentation as it might help you better understand what you need to do.
