    Hi Shamim,

    Thank you for your answer.

    I made it and the error message says: Fatal error: Can't use function return value in write context in /path/to/my/installation/user/profile/field/conditional/define.class.php on line 126.

    Thanks again.

    Please report this at
    Also please confirm if you can add other profile field types (like checkbox) without any problem.

    does this plugins offer the feature to show/hide custom fields (or custom category of fields) by role (or by user) ?
    imagine i need to not show/hide extra-field (of user profil) depending of the current user role.

    Example :
    the teachers don't have to see/access to the socials fields
    the medical team don't need to access to accounting fields but need to have his "own" fields (like health problem, vaccine,..)
    the foad team don't need to access to social fields nor accounting ones neither medical fields !

    does this plugin fill my need ?

    If there are a lot of profile fields, you'll need to replace
    [div class="no-overflow"]

    with this:
    [div class="" style="overflow-x:scroll"]

    in templates/condition_configuration_page.mustache

    (replace braces with angle braces above)

    Hi, I have installed this plugin on Moodle version 3.5 and I am getting empty space on registration form where I am setting up conditional field, the dependent fields for which are initially supposed to be hidden and appear after user selects a particular option in the conditional field.
    The scenario is: the user is supposed to select a 'country', depending upon which 'states' belonging to that country should appear (which is again a conditional field with 37 options), and depending upon the state selected, the district dropdown (37 normal dropdown fields) should appear.
    The issue is: in the registration form there appears considerable amount of empty space after country dropdown, though the conditions are working properly.
    Any suggestions to get rid of the empty space?? (I tried the solution suggested by Olli Savolainen but the space still remains.)

    Thanks & Regards,

    Hi, did you ever find a solution to the white space problem when having multiple fields? I tried the above but did not work.
