Hi there!

Step 1) Put a panel around your comment box and the label - make sure they are both inside of the panel.

Step 2) Click on the panel. Click on "Add rule". 

Step 3) In your rule formula, say:        Status != "Declined"      (where red-underlined = your named control.) -- make sure that "Hide" is checked.

This is saying - when status is NOT equal to "declined", please HIDE everything in THIS panel.

Cheers,

rhia

Hi Marg - 

See how your "Status" in the Condition is black, and not underlined? This means it is just text. You need to input a variable -- this is the only way Nintex knows what to look at.

To do this, click on your function button (f(x) to the right of your condition)

Highlight where you've typed "status" and then double click on "Status" from NamedControls -- it should appear in your condition as red & underlined. This is how you know the form understands!
