form enabled condition based on checkbox list

lawrence whittemore asked on October 21, 2020 17:19

I have a field that is a checkbox list and have fields that depend on that list. I'm not sure how to write a condition that would make my field enabled if a specific choice is selected along with other choices from the list.

the name of the field that has depending fields is ChangesBeingReported the specific option I am looking for is "Name Change"

I need to make this field required if "Name Change" is one of the fields choices selected in the checkbox list.

Hi Lawrence,

Could you provide a bit more context where you need to configure this?

  • CMS version and whether it's Portal Engine or MVC?
  • Are you configuring this for CMS admin (say, for a specific page type form or content tab) or for frontend form built with form builder?

You can find some more details and samples in this article. In the condition you need to use < FieldName >.Value to get the actual value of given field. Since it is a multiple choice field, then the values are stored separated by pipe (|) - so, the macro condition you need to write will be also working with the string manipulation methods and looking for desired value (like Contains(), etc.)
