To create Field Rules for your form, select Field Rules tab from the Options page.


This section lets you configure rules that specify the behavior of your eform and its' form fields. A separate rule can be configured for each of the choice available within the drop down field. You can put multiple conditions to create complex logical expressions.


For each rule, specify when to apply the rule in your eform.

oAny - The rule is applied when any one of the conditions are met

oAll - The rule is applied when any one of the conditions are met

Select a field from the drop list. The drop down will list all the form fields used in your form.

Specify the operator to used to compare the input values. The operators available are different for different form field types.

Enter the value to compare. You have an option to add multiple conditions. Click + icon to add more than one condition.

Then specify the action to take when the rule condition is met.
