    Are you referring to the actual Text Field?

    If so, then I'm afraid that's not possible. A Text Field is not an input field to begin with, it's just a field used to add more info to your form (just like a Header or an Image). It doesn't accept user input so no data is associated with it.

    If you're asking it the other way around though (e.g. how to pass data to a Text Field), then that one is doable. Just follow the detailed guide I'm linking below.
