[resolved] Dynamic fields from select box? (3 posts)

    Love the plugin, been using it for a long long time, bought all the addons, love everything about it!

    I was wondering about some functionality. I am building a parallax site, which will have 5 or so panels, each with different layouts. I will be using the repeater field and each section/panel/itteration of the repeater field will be able to select a layout type from a drop down, which will ultimatly pull in a different html module.

    The modules that I am loading will each have different custom fields. Lets call them field_1 field_2 field_3 and field_4.

    These modules will be making use of any number of field_1/2/3/4 and I was wondering if it is possible for the displayed fields to be hidden based on which module I have selected from a select box?

    module 1 will need field_1 and 2
    module 2 will need field_1, 2 and 3
    module 3 will need field_1, 2, 3 and 4.

    When I am on this page, I can select the module and the fields on the post/page will update accordingly as they do when a template is selected.

    I cant seem to find this functionalty anywhere in the documentation, but I might be looking for the wrong terms. If its not in the current plugins, is it possible that something like this could be made? I would be happy to pay for this functionality if it is not included as it would make wordpress infinitely more scalable for our clients.

    Just a quick note, I have the page built and working fine. I just feel that leaving a box blank, or giving the users an extra box which will be left blank just adds confusion and makes documentation seem a bit unprofessional.

    Flexable content does what I'm looking for - cannot believe I've missed this.
