Dynamic Dropdown with CSS Form Builder


Is it possible to use Dynamic Dropdowns with the CSS Form Builder?

I attempted to turn an insert form with dynamic dropdowns into a CSS form and it completely broke the page.

Thank you,

You can add Dynamic DropDowns after the form is modified using CSS Form Builder. Applying CSS Form Builder to an existing form with Dynamic Dropdowns already applied will break the Dynamic Dropdowns functionality.

See the "Modifying an existing form with CSS Form Builder" tutorial in the how to section of the CSS Form builder support page:

Yes, I read that PDF before I started working with the software. Nowhere within it does it mention that it may break a form that was already built.

In fact, other than the need to remove validation code, it insinuates that it will "modify the existing or custom-made form." Not break it.

Is there a listing somewhere within your documentation that stipulates the order in which one should use these Extensions that are included within the 'Suite?'

CSS Form Builder rewrites all of the form code from <form> tag top </form> tag.

Dynamic dropdowns relies on adding javascript conditions to the onchange event of individual form elements. These on change events get overwritten when Form builder re creates the form code.

You are correct that this is not covered in the documentation, I will bring this to the attention of the documentation team.
