Need Help with Formatting Rule needed to Hide a Label and a Single Line Textbox.

Jump to solution

Formatting Rule to hide Label and Single Line Textbox when a Pulldown Menu chooses 'Other'. The Pulldown menu is a 'List Lookup' Form Control with the column named 'Competitive Strategy' defined in the Forms List as a 'Lookup' to another list named 'CompetitiveStrategy' with a column named 'Title'. This list has 4 items in this list with one having a Title for the item = 'Other'. When someone is filling out the form and on the Pulldown menu they choose 'Other' as the option I need to have a Nintex Form 'Formatting Rule' defined to show the previously hidden 'Label' and 'Single Line Textbox' to the user filling out the form. I need some guidance in creating the correct rule to make this happen. I've spent a day reading and I'm unsure how to make this happen. Should I choose in the Rule a 'Condition' for 'Lookup' to make this happen or 'parseLookup' since my pulldown menu is based on a List Lookup? Any help would be appreciated as I'm stuck at the moment.

Fernando,

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!!

I'm going to mark your Answer as correct but the only thing I had tweak to make the 'label and Textbox to input data appear when the List Lookup Pulldown menu above it had chosen 'Other' was to make the Formatting rule look like this:

not(contains(CompetitiveStrategy, 'Other'))

Here's what the form looked like to help others:

Thank You again as I had banged my head against the wall for several hours on this and I really appreciate your help!
