    Since you wanted to use the Popup modal, you may consider changing the form URL in the embed script with the prepopulated URL. Please see the screenshot below:

    Hope this information helps!

    Though the fields are hidden, the URL can have the parameters filled and it can be embedded on the web page without any issue. If you can let us know the web page URL where the form will be embedded and from where the parameters will be changed so that we may be able to assist you further.

    Thanks!

    hi The site where they are coming from is in development still and not reachable online.  h

    The page that sends the url and hidden parameters is sending this

    https://form.jotformpro.com/70583175945970?date=23rd+July+2017&chooseActivity=Courses&coursename=INTRODUCTION+TO+WW+CANOEING&cost=75.00

     

    Thanks

    Also Is there a way to send the cost parameter without using the url as this is insecure and can be changed?

     

    Thanks

    The site where they are coming from is in development still and not reachable online.

    - How about the page where the form is embedded? If the parameters need to be dynamic and you are embedding the form to your own page, I think you need to do some coding to manipulate the URL parameters and make the following changes.

    1. I am assuming that the page that is sending the URL with parameters is a JotForm form. If so, you can send the data via POST method to your destination page by following this guide. Send Submission Data via Post Method and Thank You Settings

    2. You have to programmatically (via PHP code) catch those POST data in your page and concatenate them to the embed URL of your form to finally generate a link similar to

    Also Is there a way to send the cost parameter without using the url as this is insecure and can be changed?

    - the only way to send a parameter without using the URL is by sending it as POST data. Please see the link I have provided above about sending data via POST method.

     

    Regards.

    Hi

    Thanks for the info,

    I'm not sure that is in the correct direction

    The form on the sending page is a none jotform going to a jotform form. https://form.jotformpro.com/70583175945970

    in effect i need the jot form to accept post values and repopulate the jotform.

     

    I would rather send the data to the jotform via post rather than insecure url parameters. then use these value to perform calculation on the form.

     

    Thanks

    Since you say that the data will be sent from a different page which is not JotForm, you may pass the information to the JotForm by generating the prepopulated URL which can be done programmatically as mentioned by our colleague. If you are not a programmer, you may hire a programmer from Upwork or Freelancer to achieve your requirement.

    Thank you!
