This could be useful when you have a list of names, products, or regions that you often need to enter in a set of cells. Sometimes, however, you may want to use more than one drop-down list in Excel such that the items available in a second drop-down list are dependent on the selection made in the first drop-down list.
You can see that the options in Drop Down 2 depend on the selection made in Drop Down 1. Now, when you make the selection in Drop Down 1, the options listed in Drop Down List 2 would automatically update. Download the Example File. How does this work? When you have made the selection and then you change the parent drop down, the dependent drop down list would not change and would, therefore, be a wrong entry.
You can use VBA to make sure the contents of the dependent drop down list resets whenever the main drop down list is changed. Now, whenever you change the main drop down list, the VBA code would be fired and it would clear the content of the dependent drop down list as shown below. This can help you visually see and correct the mismatch as shown below.
This method seem not to be working anymore with the latest version of Excel and Windows. I am running version Office MSO This is extremely frustrating. Can someone please tell me why indirect lost the functionality to construct name ranges in data validation to create lists? Hello Theron. I am on Office ProPlus and this method is working for me. I am using Version I have not heard anything about it but will search and see if I can find anything. I can say why it did not worked initially.
This was to ensure we can add more items and not showing blank spaces. Which is silly, is it not? I have a 3 dependant drop down list N dependant on M, M dependant on L.
Offset 0, 1. I had a problem with your guidance. Works great, although when I open the dependent dropdown, it defaults to the last item on the list. Any way to make it default to the top? Do you want to continue? Could this be because my first drop down has numbers? Hi Danielle, it is due to the fact this this method is not supported anymore. I would like someone to comment why the use of the indirect function is not working anymore.
It only takes a minute to sign up. I tried adding placeholder similar to the given for ContactNumber for my drop down Outlet but it doesn't appear. A lot of devs I know however tend to use disabled selected combination for the option I have checked CF7's source code version 4. Contrary to what the accepted answer suggests, it actually is possible and built into Contact Form 7.
Here's the actual list of options [select] holds. While it won't traditionally look like a placeholder, if it's required the user won't be able to select the placeholder and send the form - this forces the user to select any of the other options.

This answer really should be removed, accepted or not it's incorrect, and it isn't like it's a very old answer, it was supplied on the same day as the correct one was.
Thanks for the help. This is a decent solution. And it does work properly - the form doesn't send if you try using the first option. To format the first option, just target the select box i. Then you can make the options darker by targeting the options i. The first option is highighted on focus, so unless you want to change this part, the solution works great.
I'm not entirely sure why anyone would want a select option to look like a placeholder unless I am missing something a simple --Select an option-- is what most people expect to see.

I have a ton of conditions, and it handles them very nicely. Exactly what I was looking for. Works like a charm right out of the box. Will consider to build more complex forms using the PRO version. Keep up the great work. I really appreciate the developers efforts, documentation and tutorial are very well prepared.
Stack Overflow for Teams is a private, secure spot for you and your coworkers to find and share information. My Wordpress theme uses a dark background and everything is fine on my contact page, except when I use the dropdown menu in contact form 7.
Then there becomes a styling issue with just that box. It is probably really easy but I am new to contact forms and I was told use Contact Form 7 it is really easy So, I must be having a 'bad coding day'.
Your help would be greatly appreciated as I have now spent a few hours scratching my head over this ie adding different lines of code to the style. You simply need to add some style rules for your form's select dropdown. None of the css rules above will target the form's select element.

Contact Form 7 – Conditional Fields
Technical site integration observational experiment live on Stack Overflow. Dark Mode Beta - help us root out low-contrast and un-converted bits. Related 2.Because you probably wonder what the end result is going to look like, here it is!
Go ahead and submit the form. No data will be emailed to anyone, instead you will get a preview of what the email will look like. Make sure to try both options sales and tech to see the difference in the email message. Your name: Your email address:. What kind of support do you want? Please specify your OS and version. Where is your business located?
Enter the form code below:. This is about the best we can do without conditional logic. In order to hide certain parts of the form we can wrap these parts between [group group-name] Now you will need to enter the relevant part of the form between the closing and ending tag, like this:.
Nesting groups — Note that groups can also be nested. So, it is possible to add a group with a field where the user can specify his OS version, inside the technical support group. If you save the form at this point, everything between the group tags will be invisible on the front end. So, on to the next step! In order to make a group appear if some conditions are met, we will need to add conditional rules.
Click the add new conditional rule button and enter this information:. This rule will cause the Version text field to appear once the user has selected an OS. We achieve this by checking if the selected option in the drop down list is not equal to an empty string.
This is fine, but we want something slightly more advanced. To achieve this we can click the And button next to the first condition and fill out the fields like this:. I hope the basics are now clear.
If you want to reproduce the form at the top of this page, simply paste this form code in your Contact Form 7 form. Only one thing left to do now. With Conditional Fields for Contact Form 7 it is possible to customize your email messages based on which conditional rules were met during form submission. Then we are going to list only the fields that were visible during form submission in an HTML table. As a little bonus for making it all the way trough this tutorial, here is a tool I created to convert contact form 7 code to email code.
You can use it to help you in composing your email messages.Could you pls have a look. The page I need help with: [ log in to see the link]. Hello nims :. Only text and email input fields, and 3 checkboxes. Hi … the reason is it is a live website and I had to remove dropdown and use exclusive checkboxes. I have created a post to test this. I just inspected your popup on your test site.
It appears to me that the issue has to do with the setup and performance of Contact Form 7 inside Popup Maker. Our plugin creates the container for the form plugin, but it does not control the performance of the form in the container.
As an alternative, you may consider using Ninja Forms available for free from the WordPress. The plugin is also well documented. Thanks for quick reply. I have now added the same form in the post and it works perfectly fine. If you could please have a look. See if the problem is reproduced in that environment. If the problem persists in the remotely hosted, bare-bones temporary WP test site, then let us know and provide us a link to the test site.
As I wrote before, Ninja Forms has a multi option selector field provided in their plugin, and that plugin is also free. Switch up the plugin and see if you can get the option drop down field to work in your popup.
