    How to create a form where data in address field is automatically entered when entering zip code?

    Asked by Beanie3556 on February 25, 2017 at 11:26 PM

    Dear Zipform,

     

    I have a website in Japanese and a contact form where data in the adress fields are automatically entered when the user enters a value in the postal (zip) code.

     

    Please refer to below link.

    For example, if the user enter 791-0243 in the 5th field from above (where you can see 111-2222, you will see that the address fields below till automatically become populated.

    This is done using a java script that is on the server, looking up the corresponding address.

     

    Now, I would like to create the same form using jotform. Is this possible? And if your answer is yes, can you guide me into that direction so I can understand how to achieve this?

     

    Looking forward to hearing from you within soon.

     

    Thank you very much in advance for your support.

    We don't have this feature, but we have the following mapping widgets that would allow you to enter the Zip Code and would auto populate the rest such as the City and State and the Country. Please try it.

    If you want the same function, you can incorporate your Javascript in the form source codes.

    Note that you cannot import back the source codes in the form builder. This means that you have to embed the form using the modified source codes.
