Condition To TextInputs Elements
The TextInput Condition is a complex condition on account that it must anticipate a wide range of possible data entries. Applying multiple conditions can ensure that only the correct type of data is entered by end users in Document Editor.
The TextInput Condition settings are as follows:
- “=” – equal to
- “!=” – not equal to
- “>” – greater than
- “≥” – greater than or equal to
- “<” – less than
- “≤” – less than or equal to
Although the category is titled, Numeric, “equal to” and “not equal to” may also be used for text entries.
- “is empty”, meaning that the TextInput field has been left blank.
- “is not empty”, meaning that the TextInput Field has been filled.
Generic (beta version)
- is visible, meaning the condition will activate if a certain TextInput is made visible.
- is not visible, meaning the condition will activate if a certain TextInput is not made visible.
