Custom fields based on a select list

Hi all.

I want to show a custom field when they select a choice in a select list.

For example: A select list with YES or NO, if you select YES show a custom field to explain why you choose yes

How can I do it?

Hi @Ian Van Xanten,


I'm not sure about hide/display fields but you can enable/disable custom fields based on another field selection using simple javascript something like below. 

below script will enable/disable one of the custom field based on the priority value selection

NOTE: you must place this script in the custom field's(Field B) description


<script type="text/javascript">
  priority = document.getElementById('priority');
  if (priority) {
      target = document.getElementById('customfield_10000');
      // Hide the target field if priority isn't critical
      if (priority.value != 2)'none';
      priority.onchange=function() {
          if (this.value == 2) {              
            = '';  
                     target.value="enter message here";
                  } else {




Thanks @Leo
