    Could not show the values for each drop down option?

    Asked by stormingrobots on January 24, 2017 at 12:12 AM

    Is there a way to show the  values from the "calculated value" fields for all drop down options? 

    e.g.

    for one dropdown,

    - dropdown title week 1.

    - there are 3 classes to be selected

    - each one has a $amount associated to it and entered in the calculated value in the setup. 

    - can I have all the $amount showing along with all the options?

    Hi,

    If you want to assign calculation values on your drop down fields, that is possible by following this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/301-How-to-Assign-Calculation-Value 

    After that, the calculation value can be pass to a text field or can be part of a calculation. To learn more about doing calculations, you can check the following links:

    I hope that helps.

    thank you for answering.  I was aware of the effect.  But, that's not my issue. 

    My issue is to allow those values to show up along with with  dropbox item. Do I have to create a separate a display field to display the values?  Is it way in the set up which allows the value show up automatically along side with each item?  Almost like the  option text .

    The only way to include the value would be to include it in your option text. 

    Class 1 $5
    Class 2 $10Class 3 $15

    The calculation values are not shown along with the option.  The text needs to be added.
