use conditional hidden fields

  1. Hi.

    At the top of my form there are 3 radio buttons, each one of them open different checkboxes and the client should check the boxes he is interested.

    I have 2 problems, but I think solving the first one will solve the second as well.
    1. When client switch between the radios, when he come to one of his previous selection he finds it empty. The form doesn't save previous selections at different radio when using conditionals logic.
    2. At the end of the process when the client hit SUBMIT, I need to collect all the information, also from the field that are hidden because of the conditionals.

    I really hope it can be solved.
    Thanks a lot for your support

  2. Regarding #2, fields which are hidden with conditional logic will not be included in the entry. It's like they are not even part of the form.

    Regarding losing the state of the hidden and unhidden conditional sections, I will ask for the developers input. Thank you.

  3. I will appreciate it if you can check the ability of using the hidden section as well. (#2)
    without it, unfortunly, GF wont fit for my website needs.
    Probably there is a code that can allow it.

    Thanks

  4. I don't believe Gravity Forms will meet your needs right at this time.

    The first "problem" is a "feature" we implemented to allow nested conditional logic to work (ie. country/state/city drop downs where state is dependent on the country selection and city is dependent on the state selected). Part of the solution to this nested conditional logic problem was to reset the selections when they are hidden. So every field that is hidden will have its value reset (input fields will get emptied out and checkboxes will get unchecked). This is currently not a behavior that can be changed.

    There is nothing else to check on #2. Fields that are hidden by conditional logic will be ignored.

    It does not sound like yours is an application for Gravity Forms.
