How do I create an action so that a specific selection from a combo box changes the visibilty of a second combo box?

Example:

ComboBox_CarType (Visible)

Select a vehicle type:

Compact

Mid-Sized

Luxury

SUV

Minivan

ComboBox_Suv (Hidden)

Select a make:

Cadilac

Ford

GMC

Hummer

Jeep

The action I’m trying to create is:

– If user selects SUV (from ComboBox_CarType)

set ComboBox_Suv to visible

obviously, I have a ton of other combo boxes for which i need to have similar interaction .. but, once i know how to do one, i can do them all

i have figured out how to change the visiblity once “any” selection is made, but i can’t do it based on a single selection. I do see in the Action editor that it is possible to add Conditional Branching using the Index of the selected item, but for the life of me, i don’t see how, or where to assign the index for each item in the list ..

please help :-)

by the way, this tool is awesome .. i have 7 days left in the trial .. will probably buy it if i can get this kind of interaction

(i have another question related to this, but i’ll start another thread, depending on the outcome of this one)

thanks!

Hi Jeremy,

The index of the item is natural number starting from 1. So the first item will have the index=1, the second item will have index=2 …

So you can make your conditional branching like this:

However you have more than 2 items in each ComboBox, it is better to use the Switch Branching:

#1
  1. Fantastic! I was looking for a way to customize the name for each item, but that would be overkill .. so, simple index order is perfect for what I need .. wow ..this software is pretty amazing .. i'm going to demo it to my team and try to get a few licences for our department .. great work!
