I need to give users a choice between two options, but one of them need to be specified by additional parameter before clicking. I'm struggling with showing the linkage between dropdown list of parameters and the button. In my first attempt, dropdown was just above the button, but I think "merging" them together is better.

Do you have any other ideas how to do this? Thanks in advance![enter image description here

Have option 1 and option 2 inside a dropdown so that the user selects of them.If he selects option 2 from the dropdown then add the dynamic fields to add more info.

EDIT: In case the additional data you require are mandatory and have a close connection , is a variant of the first option then you can add them in the same dropdown.

So the drop down will now have 1.Spanish 2.English US 3.English UK

If they are not closely related and it demands a different input type then on selection of drop down have the input control below or onto your right based on the form layout.

  • Thanks. So, if user wants to have option 1, he/she must first pick it from the dropdown list and submit with a button? Of course we can make the option 1 as default, but still - I don't feel it. What about dynamic fields - where should they appear? I would rather let him do it via single click. In your solution everything seems hidden. Aug 25, 2016 at 12:23
  • @mintpandapl can you please give an example for option 2 that requires extra data?And how does this fit in ?Is it a part of a form?More context would be helpful Aug 25, 2016 at 12:27
  • I have replaced the image, it is still an example but might shed you some light Aug 25, 2016 at 12:33
