I came across a scenario to implement Conditional Section for Sitecore 9.0 to hide/show fields based on user input. This feature was introduced on Sitecore 9.1(Checkout my other blog here). Since the project is in Sitecore 9.0, I decided to create a custom control using speak.
Let’s get started.
Step 1: Create form element in core DB using speak
Switch to Core DB
Go to /sitecore/client/Applications/FormsBuilder/Components/Layouts/PropertyGridForm/PageSettings/Settings
Create a template based of Form Parameters. (I couldn’t find it when i tried from Insert Template, so i duplicated the existed one- MutliLine Text. If you know, how to add Form Parameters template(not using Sitecore Rocks), please leave a comment.)
Add the FormTextBox Parameters template. Since I duplicated MultiLineText field, it came with the Details, Validation, Styling and Advanced. I feel it’s best shortcut to create quick.
Fill out FormLabel, IsLableOnTop and BindingConfiguration fields.
Repeat the fields as many as you need. Here i added one more to compare the value.
NOTE: IsLabelOnTop is unchecked for additional fields
Step 2: Create form template in Master DB
On Master DB, create a custom template under Basic/Lists/Security/Structure folders based on Field Type template(/sitecore/templates/System/Forms/Field Type). I created under Structure Section as it’s Condition Section.
Fill out Property Editor field by choosing the custom control that was created in Core DB. You can see all the fields listed shown in below screen shot.
Fields(View Path, Model Type)will be filled out after creating code behind and razor view files.
Step 3: Create model and view in Visual Studio
Create model and view in project under Helix structure
Now you should see the new form control on the elements panel. Drag and Drop to any form and fill out the Target Field and True Value fields appropriately and put any element(s) inside Conditional Section to show/hide the element(s).
Don’t forget to publish all the templates and forms!
Happy Sitecoring! Leave a comment if you have any questions.
