Show and Hide dependencies on form fields not working


I have set up a Epi Form that contains two elements. A Text Box with a "This Field will be hidden" option when the value of a multiselect field Equals "No".

When I select "No" on the multiselect there are no console errors shown, but the Text Box element is not hidden.

I have @Html.RequiredClientResources(RenderingTags.Header) in the head. Is there something else I need to do for this functionality to work?

Have you also included @Html.RequiredClientResources("Footer") at the bottom of your page? Amongst other things, this is used to add jQuery onto your page which is a requirement for a number of the client-side features of Episerver Forms.

Just as a quick update - did the following to resolve:

  1. Html.RequiredClientResources(..) for both header and footer + ensured no browser console errors for epi forms as a result.
  2. Ensured javascript enabled on the epi forms options 
  3. Cleared browser cache

Hi Sam, how did you verify step 2?

I have the exact same problem as you first posted. I have @Html.RequiredClientResources("Footer") and @Html.RequiredClientResources("Header") properly placed in the code and I've tried clearing the cache. The Text Box will not "hide" and their is no console errors.

Any tips would be helpful :)
