Default PDF Form Conditional Fields


I'm making my first interactive form with PPX7 and before I spend too much more time on it I'm interested in adding a conditional set of fields.

I'm trying to make a Meeting Minutes form modeled after the one here: http://asidwi.org/files/2011/11/452515443.01.pdf

One thing that I noticed is that with the Agenda items it seems there are not always the same number of Agenda items. So, maybe one meeting they have 9 items, next they have 10.

My question: Is it possible to have conditional fields so maybe if there was a check box that asked if there was another agenda item and if checked yes then the title and another set of fields would appear to be completed.

Is this within the realm of possibility with PPX7 forms?

Yes -

Place a Check Box on the Form, then a Text box on the form.

Check Box on form - Right click on it > Form Field Properties > Actions > Add - On Mouse Up: Hide or show form fields - Selext your Txt box from the list.

Text box on Form - Right Click on it > Form Field Properties > General - Display = No

Make sure that the Text block isn't Tab Order = 1 (Format > Form Field > Tab Order)

Publish as pdf (Not PDF/X.. though)
