Workflow 6.5 - How to move objects on a form dynamically

Created: 27 Oct 2009 • Updated: 21 May 2010 | 4 comments

I'm currently creating a webform and have certain options display when clicking certain checkboxes.  Each option is under a different section of the form.  The issue is when I created the form, the objects were laid out in a way where you would need to scroll down the whole form to see all the options.  What happens is if you click box to display some options they still appear all the way down the form and don't slide up where the user can see them.  Is there a way to make the objects that become visible once checking a box appear towards the top fo the page, rather than where they were laid out in design view?  Or is this not possible with Workflow 6.5.

I know this may sound I know there might be questions!

I have used java script to show controls based on condtions similar.  I am sure you can specifiy posistion in javascript as well.  I would try googling that.

I'm trying to do something similar in that when a certain radio button/check box is selected, a control is either shown or hidden/disabled. Have tried tweaking visiblility using a dynamic model, but it doesn't give me what I need. I've also tried using custom events but had no luck.

Yep, I've tried the same stuff that you have.  For right now it'd be a COOL thing to have in the workflow.  It'd make the workflow really defined, but unfortuenately I'm not sure Workflow 6.5 can do this, unless I try it with Javascript which for now I'd like to try to avoid.  Maybe Workflow 7 has the capability without further coding.  I'll probably dive back into it this weekend or next week.

I also requested some examples of custom behaviors (among other things) on SWAT. I think they are going to try and put some things together for us. Stay tuned!
