Hidden can't be added/removed with conditional logic - workaround?

  1. Hi, I'm trying to build a competition form. It has 10 dropdowns with 3 possible answers in each. If all 10 questions are correct, I want to use Conditional Logic to include a hidden fields with 'correct' as the value. This will allow my client to easily see you the correct entrants are.

    Hidden fields don't have cond logic, so can anyone think of another way to do this?

  2. The easiest way to handle this is going to be adding a hidden field to your form and then writing custom code that populates that hidden field AFTER the form is submitted (not before).

    You could use the gform_pre_submission hook to write custom code that checks the answers of the drop downs and determine if things are correct or not. If they are, then populate the value of the hidden field.

    The gform_pre_submission hook is documented here:

  3. Brilliant... I wasn't thinking nearly 'custom' enough, I forgot about all the hook and fun bits of GF. Cheers!
