Click on link/button to show the repeating section.

Jump to solution

Hi All,

 

I am developing form which has one repeating section with around 25 controls and it makes form pretty large.  I had customer meeting yesterday and he pointed out that repeating section is not already required by company staff.



He asked provide a link or button for the staff to click on a link and only when staff clicks on the link or button, I need to show the repeating section.

Q: How could I achieve this?


Thanks in advance.

Hi there:

I would drop the repeating section into a panel, and then set a rule on the panel to hide it.

What you can then do is add a button "Show ( topic ) Section" that will effectively hide / unhide that panel.

This thread will teach you how to create such a button:

I would approach it just as the others have suggested; using a panel with some rules to hide/unhide the panel on demand.

This can be done with minimal JavaScripting along with a button to trigger the js and rules. The link that Rhia Wieclawek‌ provided shows how to do exactly that. 

Alternatively, you can use a checkbox and then use a rule to hide/unhide the panel when the checkbox is check/unchecked. Different approaches, same result!

Let us know how things work out for you and if you need any help!

Hi Sandy,

      Better use a Panel Control and drag & drop your controls which you want to hide and impose rules for that panel control.

This can still be fine tuned as 

1. By Clicking a Radio Button or a Check Box can make you panel to be visible \ hide.

2.Any custom event can be triggered.
