Text field not showing after conditional fields

    Hello,
    I'm currently working on a form which has a series conditional fields. However at the bottom of them all I need a standard text box. When saving the form though, this doesn't appear. If I drag the box above any of the condotional fields it works. Do the conditional fields need to be 'reset' or anything along those lines...?
    Many thanks

  2. Do you have a link to your form? Also, have you changed the labels of the fields that rely on conditional logic? If so, you need to reselect them in the conditional logic settings.

    Thanks for your reply. After playing round with it, it looks like it doesnt show it because it falls under a section break (which has conditional logic in place). The section break was just needed for text, is there another way I can insert static text which only shows up when a certain checkbox is selected?

  4. You can use an HTML field for that and place your text in there and wrap it in a heading tag of your choosing.

    Hi Rob,
    I know it has been a while but I am running into the same issue as arebee02 and have not found an answer .
    I am using a lot of conditional logic to guide the user based on a given selection. The section breaks seemed to work well as headings until I realized that they impact what comes afterwards (i.e., visible or hidden) up to the next section. I was basically interested in using the section breaks as headings which make it into the form itself until then. I wanted just the section break to change based on conditional logic, but given the functionality, it toggles the visibility of form fields which are part of the section below.

    To make a long story short, how can I create headings (static text), which make it into the form and can be toggled using conditional logic? The solution does not seem to be HTML.

    Thank you very much for your help.

    I have actually found what might be a clunky yet simple solution and it does the job for now.
    I insert another section break below the ones I want to toggle and set the visibility to Admin Only for that one. This allows the section breaks to show/hide without affecting the fields below.

  7. You can do that, or you can use the HTML field and put your headings there. That way the HTML headings can be visible regarding of the way you have your section breaks configured. I'm glad you found a workaround which works for you.

    Thank you Chris. Just for clarification.
    I need the headings to make it into the database, which is not possible with the HTML field unlike with the the section breaks. Hence unless I misunderstand it, your solution would not work for me.

  9. You're right. I did not know you wanted to store the actual text of the section break or HTML heading in the database. Your solution sounds fine for what you want to do.
