Hi folks,

no idea if anyone has managed this, but I would like (for example) a drop down list of articles the client can choose from, the last of which is 'Other – please specifcy in the box below', so that they can select this and then manually enter text into a text box – but only have the text box editable if 'Other' is selected from the list. Is this possible in CFORMs?

thanks all in advance

this can be (must be) done 'outside' of cforms. simply control the input field status (disabled etc) by using Javascript (e.g. jQuery).
