    Form Builder V4.0 : Field {tags} used within form do not work

    Asked by amsweb1 on March 23, 2017 at 04:51 PM

    Can part of a multi-field form (like address) be passed into a Text Element

    I will be using the method described here pull input values into text later on in the form.  The part I'm not sure how to handle though is that I need to display the "State" value... but that is part of the multi-line address form fields.  How can I pull in only the state field input, not the entire address, into a text (HTML) field?

    This is possible to use {address:state} tag to get the State input value.

    However, it seems that {tags} are not currently working in Text fields when added via v4 editor, so you will need to use the v3 editor for this. I have submitted a bug report regarding the v4 builder to our developers.

    You have reported the same issue several times and this makes your tickets duplicated. So, I 'm cancelling this one and you can follow this issue situation from this thread

    Thank you for your understanding.
