I have created a form and included rules. Currently all the options are shown when the form is submitted even though they are blank and the user has never seen them from their selection. How can I stop this?
Also I would like to process the data. So each time a record is entered with a reference number it goes to that separate record.
Can somebody point me in the right direction .. please???
Edited from: Is there a way to just show fields that have been filled in in the submitted section of the site. I have a form with rules and only want the relevant questions which have been answered shown?

On creating the form you could just check for each field if there's a value for it and the decide wether to create / display this field or not.

Am a bit confused as am a newbie. I have all the fields with rules to hide and show on the actual form. It is on the submission that it is showing lots of blank fields. Am not sure how to do what you are explaining?

OK .. I have found some code which I think does what I want ...
return true; // ensure form still submits
I have absolutely no idea where to put this code or if it is suitable? Please would somebody help?!

If there is no way of omitting the blank fields then why offer dependant forms? Really struggling here.

Basically this is quite difficult, the visibile of the form field is handled in the front end and the form submission in the backend. The state of a field (visible vs hidden) isn't passed (if you have JS disabled, all the fields will be shown by default)
