Limiting the amount of checkboxes that can be checked that use conditional logic

  1. matsilva

    Basically just like the title says I want to limit the number of checkboxes that can be checked in a checkbox fieldset.

    I have read and implemented this:
    http://www.gravityhelp.com/forums/topic/limiting-the-amount-of-checkboxes-that-can-be-checked#post-6990

    Worked like a charm, however in my form when checking a box we have conditional logic to open a dropdown but when I try to tick another box like a normal user would probably so jQuery stops it from being checked but opens the conditional logic item that it applied to and continues to do so unless you uncheck your first choice and check another.

    Any help from the amazing Gravity Form team or forum members? Bonus points for code :-)

  3. Hi Matsilva,

    The easiest way to get around this is going to be disabling the other checkboxes once the limit has been reached. Here is an alternate method for limiting checkboxes with Gravity Forms that does just that.

    After trying this out it didn't seem to work for me. Added the snippet to the functions file and changes the appropriate values but it just allows me to check all boxes still.

  6. Hi Matsilva,

    Can you provide a link to a form where you have this implemented?

    Hello,

    I am looking to do the same thing and I tried adding the code to the functions file and it throws an error. I am using iThemes Builder and the Default Child Theme.

    Any help?

    Thanks.

  9. What is the error it's throwing?

    If it's a syntax error, you likely pasted it into the file incorrectly or in the wrong place. If it's another error, we need to know the exact error.

    Hello,

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class GFLimitCheckboxes in /home/content/20/8052220/html/contest/wp-content/themes/Builder/custom-functions.php on line 8

    I pasted into the functions.php file in the themes/Builder folder.
