How to do multiple calculated results from slider calculator?Asked by ronaldfacchinetti on January 06, 2017 at 11:09 AM
I am creating a form using the calculator slider. The form must produce multiple results. However I am unsure if there is a way to produce more results. Something like this
which was the subject of a thread last year, but with no explanation of how it was done...
I checked that form and noticed that it was actually mine. Could you please direct me to the thread link where you find this? It would be quite impossible for me to find it manually.
You can clone my form to see how it is setup and to have a copy of it in your account. Here's how: https://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL
Now in my form, I used two kinds of widget:
Now the "Sliders with Calculated Results" widget has its own special function to calculate. You can see directly the instructions when you open the widget's wizard:
Now I then can use separate Form calculation widgets to fetch the value from the slider widget and use on another formula.

The slider in that form is simply a slider, no advance calculation inside it (I believe). I'm not sure about that specific case scenario, I think the user on that previous form just wanted to have the advance functionality like the precision.
I hope that helps.
Ah, so it was a two-widget affair. I was stuck on trying to figure out some hidden function in the slider (it does provide a single calculation function and I thought a second or third one could be inserted inside the results text field). I understand now, thank you for the very informative response. The old thread from which I got your widget is this one
