How can I hide form page buttons until all required fields on a page have a value or even one specific field has a value/is not empty? That would be a great feature for us low-code/no-code click jockeys!  :-)

Have you tried "Add conditional logic to submit button" on the form's settings Buttons tab?

Hi Victor. What I'm going for is controlling the visibility of the form pagination buttons.

You'll have to do this with custom CSS/jQuery. Even though the Next and Previous buttons are actual submit buttons, Formidable's conditional options for the Submit button only apply to the button with the class frm_final_submit.

I see. Have you done this before? If so, do you have code snippets you'd care to share/sell? B)

I've written tons of jQuery/CSS. Every situation is unique and I don't have any snippets to share. If I haven't published snippets on Formidable Masterminds, then I don't have a snippet to sell either. This is what you need to use: https://api.jquery.com/hide/

You target the element with $("#element-id"). Change "#element-id" to the id of your target element. This shouldn't take more than 10-lines of code. Takes all of about 5-minutes to write.

Wonderful! Thanks for the assist, Victor. If i get this running, I'll post it here and in snippets. I can imagine with a couple of code comments it's something that could be a decent utility for a few use cases 🙂
