Configuring exit layout to display only selected calculations

User moon_1312 2013-11-22 20:52:08

I have created a Calculator, which provides you the number of units of product(s) you require to complete a job. To do this I have multiple Yes/No fields, when selected the answer is given. The problem I am having is I do not want the results page to display all the products, just the selected ones.

For example:

Product A: 20 units
Product B: n/a
Product C: 30 units
Product D: n/a

So I want to remove product B and D from the results page. What can I Do?

you can build conditional output depending on user input. To achive this you'll need an 'if' structure:

$result="Your result when condition is met";
$result="Your result when condition is NOT met";

so you can print ##result## at your exit layout. For your case, the condition is when checkbox is selected (replace 'yourcheckbox' for your field name):

$result="Checkbox selected";

$result="Checkbox not selected";

You have a video tutorial regarding this function here:

(Conditional output)

that you can also check to have an example of the steps needed.
