    Include database

    Asked by arkhosxx on March 19, 2017 at 12:22 PM

     

    Good Morning.. I want to include a field in my form in which the person enters his code and thus presents the name of it already registered in the system.

     

    It would be like this: the person fills in his code and so the form shows the name already registered in another place.

     

    2) My other doubts would be:I enter my code and so does not include yet the system lets me finish filling out the form. If you have already included the same code, it will not let you proceed.

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to pull data from a database. You could download the full source code of your form, and hire a developer to implement what you need: https://www.jotform.com/help/104-How-to-get-the-Full-Source-Code-of-your-Form, and finally upload it to your server.

    On regards of restricting submissions based on a unique answer, that is possible to accomplish, here is how to do it: https://www.jotform.com/help/223-How-to-set-Form-Limits-Based-on-a-Unique-Question

    In this case of the database, I would not have to register in some field in the form itself and thus, when the person enters the code he pulls the name of it ?

     

     

    2) I noticed that it works only when you click submit. In this case it would not be possible to validate the page pass for example. ?

     

     

    I appreciate the answer

    1) You can create conditions if the list of people is not that extensive: https://www.jotform.com/help/268-Conditional-Logic-Inserts-Text-Calculation-Into-A-Field

    2) Unfortunately no, it only works upon submission.

    If you do not want to allow the users to proceed when they type a number that is not in the condition, you can hide the field so that they will not be able to proceed.

    For example:

    You can set a condition to hide the Full Name field if the users type a wrong Entry Code.

     

    Result:
