Repeating Sections

  1. Hi,

    I want to know that I want to repeat a section number of times selected from a select box. Can you tell how to make it happen using GravityForms.

    Thanks

  2. You can't repeat sections or groupings on the fly. You would create a pre-defined number of steps ( say up to 10 ) in your form - each divided by a section break and then use the conditional logic to show or hide the sections based on the value of a drop down ( select )

    For example, they would first be presented with a drop down to select how many XX ( - whatever type of fields or information they contain ). They select from a pre-defined number and then the conditional logic would display that many sections in the form while the others remained hidden.

  3. Any suggestions for a faster way to write a LONG form with multiple repeating sections? Is there a way to create a form in my code editor?

  4. You could export the form as XML, then copy the sections that need repeating. You would have to make sure that you re-number things properly and keep the proper XML structure, but it should work. Then you can re-import the form.

  7. More than 200 fields so far! I copied the repeating region xml to a separate file where I could manipulate the labels simultaneously, eg, find and replace all instances of [*-x] with [3-x], I still had to edit the field id's but this method certainly saved me some time!
