Valid IF dependant dropdown Functionality Question

I created a form to be used in conjuntion with a Bar Code Scanner. This form auto saves and reopens each time. When I include a dependant dropdown in the column, you have to independantly click into the field each time to scan. When the dependant dropdown is not there, it will automatically be ready to accept the scan without clicking into the field. Is there any way to HAVE the dependant dropdown and NOT have to click into the field every time.

Hello @Dan_Oliphant, have you tried hiding the dependant dropdown while the bar code column is empty?

You can achieve that using a expression like this in the column’s show_if:

ISNOTBLANK([Bar code column])
