    Is there a widget (or a native function) within JotForm for me to create my own syntax?

    Asked by IanRm on February 10, 2017 at 11:03 AM

    For example once the user has populated a field, at the end of the form it produces a block of pre-programmed text that has inserted the values of various fields?



    [Field1] Field2 ::Field3

    - Field4 #Field5

    - Field6 ::Field7 +Field8


    I have tried using the calculator function on my test form i've created ( https://form.jotform.com/70404452046952 ) but it is trying to insert numbers, where as the values I'm trying to insert are letters and words.


    Thank you

    You can change field values form 0-9 to A-Z inside of your calculation.

    You can also use Text field and add values form your other fields.
