Data Entry Form: Creating Form "sub-Fields" That Conditionally Appear, Dependant Upon Previous Values From The Data Entry Form フォローする
I'm hoping to dynamically change the content on my Data Entry Form, based on the entered values of previous questions. I'm having difficulties finding this as a forum topic elsewhere, so please feel free to direct me towards any previous thread where this may have been addressed.
Here's a basic example of what I'm hoping the form will do:
When the Data Entry Form appears prior to printing, one main field appears at the top:
Part Number: [ ]
When a user enters the part number and it finds a match within the linked database, other sub-fields conditionally appear in the Data Entry Form based on the part number that was entered.
In this example, if "1111" was entered as the Part Number, I'd like to toggle a sub-field below it that asks: Which Lot number? [ ]. If "2222" was entered as the Part Number, I'd like to toggle subfield that asks: Which Serial Number? [ ]. Ideally, I would be able to toggle these sub-fields based on values within the database, or some kind of trigger value that I can enter into the database value in a separate column.
The label artwork itself is already created with the ability to change field label text to accommodate these variables, as field labels and field values can be pulled from the database field (Serial Number:#### or Lot Number:#### ) -- but I'd like to make sure that the employees filling out the label don't have to see a potentially confusing prompt in the Data Entry Field that says something like "Serial Number or Lot Number: [ ]" when entering data. I'd like it to specify one or the other to help reduce error.
From a formatting perspective, I don't care whether these subfields would appear on the same Data Entry Form as the original Part Number entry field. Having step-by-step Data Entry Form screens accomplish this would also be an acceptable alternative, if such a paradigm exists within BarTender.
I'm running Professional 10.1.
