I created a form in infopath. I'd like to show a section (multiple fields) only when the field name is checked. I was only able to hide the input part, but not the name. Is there a way to hide the fields and their name? When main field is checked the whole section show, otherwise hide/ collapse. The image below shows when field4 is not checked. The input for field1 doesn't show, but the name, field1 is still there.

thank you in advance.
field1 dependent of field4

The field name cannot be hidden because it is not in any control.

You can add a Section control (under HOME > Controls on ribbon) to the form and then put the field name (text) and the field1 control within.

After that, apply the rules on the Section to hide it on condition.

  • I would accept this as the answer to my question, but I don't know how to "accept" it. I thought by increasing the vote would do.
