    Need a form to dynamically display the text by changing the font from a dropdown

    Asked by DukeofBling on December 06, 2016 at 12:41 PM

    I need a form that has a selectable drop down list of available fonts and an input text box that user can input message and another text field that shows message with selected font applied. Do you have a template or built in script that will do this.

    Thanks Ross Barnhill

    I don't think we have a template that matches your requirement. However, this may be achieved by using multiple text fields to display the different font types with the entered text.

    Please see the screencast below that can help you in adding the fields to the form.

    Now, add the conditions to the form to display appropriate text field based on the font selected from the dropdown.

    The form is now ready and it should be displaying the text as per the font selected.

    Please see the form below :

    Thank you.
    Do you know if I can embed this into eBay listings. They have
    started a new no interactive script policy. I can always link to this but I
    would rather use it on a listing for easier user input.
