    Conditions in Umbraco Forms (7.2)

    I have set up a show/hide condition (as from in a form but the form field never shows when I toggle the radio button. The form works fine otherwise. The scripts are included in bottom of page with @Umbraco.RenderMacro("umbracoforms.RenderScripts"). Validation and everything is looking good. There are no javascript errors.

    edit: It appears now as the conditions does not get saved. If I hit ctrl+f5 in backoffice, the condition information I've entered is gone. No javascript error here either.

    Any ideas on this?

    Not sure if it's related, but I get an error when I try to upgrade Umbraco forms from the backend (on the

    Same issues as above, the Conditions aren't saving and the upgrade processes returns a 404.

    Same problem for me. I really need to resolve this issue :(


    EDIT: i'm using umbraco version 7.2.1 and contour last version using a free license. Inspecting the source code of my page, i found out that js function CHECKRULES, automatically created by umbraco contour, is empty. Is that because i'm using a free license?

    I have no javascript error and the form works fine when i submit my data. The problem is that i need to use conditional field but at the moment i cant.

    The best solution for me would be to have fields showing/hiding other conditional fields when a certain value is inserted and, if the field is mandatory AMD invisible at the same time, to NOT consider my hidden fields as mandatory. If that works, i would immediately buy the license.

    Think I figured this one out. You have to click the "+ New condition" before you save. This adds the condition (and it persists). Possibly a UX issue here. My understanding of ther terminology is that the "+ New Condition" is a button for adding ANOTHER condition.

    "+ New condition" must be clicked to implement the condition (even if you have only one).
    A little tool tip or something in the UI would be very helpful.
    David, thanks for the help!

    Finally i reached the same solution this morning. Very ambiguous :(

    I am suggesting a change to "+ Add" which is less ambiguous IMHO.

    Wow, I just wasted a couple hours trying to figure this issue out as well. I think the text should read "Save Condition". The "+ New Condition" really makes you think you only need to click that if you want to add a second condition. Very confusing but once you get it, works great :)

    Thanks, I would have looked for hours for a solution to this "problem".

    Did you create an issue on the issue tracker yet? So I can vote for it :)
