Dynamically Change Upload Form

CodeGrinder @ Tue Sep 16 13:03:22 EEST 2014
Is it possible to change which form is displayed based on a cookie / session variable? For example sometimes we require the same user to submit a documents using Form-1, but other times they will need to use Form-2. They are always notified via email that they need to submit documents. In the link they click on some variables are passed to them., so I am wondering if can also pass a variable like form=Form-2, which will then prompt them for the alternate form to be displayed?

A single form can be dynamically changed based on a drop the entire form can change based on the selection.

Would that work?

Actually yes, that would work great for this. How do I go about setting that up?

Have a drop-down that has a name ending with "_cascade". Now the drop-down's elements when chosen will effect the other elements later on in your overall from.

So, let’s say you have a drop-down called “order_form_cascade” and then create three options within that drop-down called, “poster”, “photo_prints”, and “generic”.

Then the following from elements have names like below:

Item5 <----is always shown since it has no matching tag on the end of it.

Its the end of the form element name that tags it to be hidden with the cascade functionality.
