    Need a button of sorts to launch built URL

    Asked by Nuxodom on March 09, 2017 at 12:16 PM

    Hi all. Love your form stuff!


    I have a question: I built a form full of image checkbox widgets for various knife properties for a website I am building. The URL is: https://form.jotform.us/70548337776165


    My issue is simple: I generate several different URLs from the selected knife options to allow searching different  websites/search engines for the knife that meets the selection criteria. You can see the generated URLs at the bottom of the form.

    I need to add a button of sorts, like "Search Knife Depot" and "Search Amazon" that, when pressed, grabs the generated URL search string and launches a new window/tab with that URL.

    I'm not sure how to accomplish this. I am a C++/C# software engineer so any more technical response is perfectly fine.

    We do not have a feature to accomplish that. You might want to download your form's full source code and implement a JavaScript solution to accomplish what you want to: https://www.jotform.com/help/104-How-to-get-the-Full-Source-Code-of-your-Form
