I need to hide a radio button field of a content type (not a form) only on the edit view based either on its own value or based on the value of another field that is already hidden.

Dependencies does not work, I think because the other field is already hidden and because it does not allow the dependent and dependee field to be the same field.

Any ideas?

You can give a try to this module: https://www.drupal.org/project/ffc

  • Nice tip, i will find this module useful, however it did not resolve this issue as it hid the field on view content but not on edit content. i need the opposite.

  • Did you try this: drupal.org/project/conditional_fields

You may want to try hook_form_alter on that particular form. For example i had a case where i wanted a field to only show if it had more than one taxonomy term

    function members_form_members_node_form_alter(&$form, &$form_state,$form_id){
if(count($form['field_church_']['und']['#options']) > 1){
 $form['field_church_']['und']['#required'] = TRUE;} 
return $form;}
  • Thanks, just a bit over my head. i can adapt the code, just not sure where to put it. In a new module?

  • You should use the #access property instead of unsetting $form elements.

  • You are right. In my case i didn't want people to see the field.

  • Don't know why this answer is downvoted as it seems like the reasonable thing to do. I'm looking for a solution to this myself, but my case is a bit more complicated: I want to conditionally show a field based on another field, but these 2 fields are in a paragraph, which are referenced by a field in another paragraph which are referenced by a field in a content type. If anyone has any ideas, I'm all ears.
