How do I hide custom fileds based other custom field on create screen only?


I have a checkbox custom field named 'Fruits' and value Requested.

And other 3 more custom fields.

When user clicks Requested it should shows other 3 custom fields else not.

Prior to that all 3 custom fields must be hidden.

You will need some code to do that.  Either a custom field type that can support it, or injected javascript. 

The Behaviours module in the script runner add-on can do this too, it does the javascript for you.

Yes Nic,

I am using this below code using JavaScript through the plugin

function fruitnewField(){

$('#customfield_14201-1').click(function() {   // Fruit cf

if (document.getElementById('customfield_14201-1').checked){ AJS.$("#customfield_14202").closest('div.field-group').show();  //other cf
AJS.$(":input[name='customfield_14203']").closest('').show();  //other cf
AJS.$("#customfield_14204").closest('div.field-group').show();  //other cf



When I checked check box other cf are shows and when I unchecked it cf are hides.

But the problem is how to hide these other custom fields on the load of create screen when the check box is unchecked defaultly.
