    Show/hide subform with dropdown selection

    christie7F Level 1

      I've been working at this for hours and my pea brain just can't handle it!

       

      My dropdown menu contains two selections, but on form open the selection is <none>

      1 - MAINTENANCE DIRECTIVE

      2 - TECHNICAL INFORMATION BULLETIN

       

      Dropdown menu is called "TitleType" and is located on the master page.

       

      I have a subform within the main subform called "subformTIB" It contains information that should be hidden when the client selects dropdown option
      2 - TECHNICAL INFORMATION BULLETIN

       

      when 1 - MAINTENANCE DIRECTIVE is selected, "subformTIB" should be visible and when <none> is selected, it doesn't make a difference.

       

      Can anyone help with code?

       

      I'd be happy to provide the form if necessary.

          If you only have two options, ensure you have code for both options. I find it works better to have specific code per item rather than an else code.

           

          Example: If the first option hides a field and the second option doesnt. Make sure that is reflected in both item's code.

               In the first option: show required option 1 fields and hide the option 2 fields.

               In the second option: show the option 2 fields and hide the option 1 fields.
