Controls keep moving randomly when they change visibility

In Nintex form for Sharepoint Online I have a checbox that controls  visibility of 4 other fields:

As you can see they are nicely aligned into one row and they are formatted using default CSS class - either nf-form-label or nf-form-input.

Now, by default those 4 controls are hidden, but when the tickbox is checked the newly appearing controls start to "dance":

I've found a workaround by putting an always visible empty label, but shouldn't this happen in the first place?

Re: Controls keep moving randomly when they change visibility

Hi Kristof,

I would suggest you add the "Days per week" and "Expiry date" in a panel...both fields in the same panel.  Whenever I work with rules I make use of panels and I apply the hide / visible rules on the panel and not on the actual fields.

Hope this helps.  Let me know if you need more info on this.

Re: Controls keep moving randomly when they change visibility

I've found what is the problem:  if there is ONE rule applying to multiple controls in a row then it works as intended. If there are 4 identical rules, each applying to different control and there is no "always visible" control in same row, then I have problem as described in original post.

So FYI there are 3 solutions:

- Add empty label in row

- Add panel, put controls in panel and apply the rule to the panel ONLY (as suggested by Francois Crous​)

- Create rule, mark all controls and select in the rules panel "Add to selected controls".

Re: Controls keep moving randomly when they change visibility

FYI:   Using a panel is the best of your three workarounds, so for anyone reading this, this is the one I suggest.
