    Are Conditional Checkboxes Possible?

      Are Conditional Checkboxes Possible?

      Post

      Im have a Layout with a relatively large list of questions and their respective fields set as text allowing the user to type in their answer, however there are 2 fields in which i would like to set possible answers by displaying as checkboxes allowing them to check all that apply.

       Up to here no problem.

       

      One field in my DB is age and here is the tricky part

       

      Assuming its possible i need to set this up so that according to the persons age the value list changes displaying different "possible answers".

       

      I thought about creating a layout and making multiple copies then adding a different value list to the field in each layout, then setting up the age field to do a script trigger on exit, the script would then look at the age and depending on what was set take you to the pertaining layout.

       

      Im sure this will work however that would leave me with an awfull lot of layouts and im trying to avoid doing it in this manner.

      can anyone help with this? is there a way to make this happen with scripting?

          A check box is simply a different way to display the options in a value list. It's still a conditional value list. The only added detail is that your layout will have a rigid amount of space in which to display the values. If you have one condition that displays 2 values and another that displays 25, you'll need to format your layout so that the field is large enough to show all 25 values.

           

          Here's a thread on setting up conditional value lists:
