    Text field: Text field displaying the feild names of the other fields on the form instead of their values

    Asked by carriewilson on March 26, 2017 at 08:56 PM

    When I use form fields in text element on my form, it displays the field ID rather than the value.

    Please see https://form.jotform.co/70847997979891 for an example in a test form.

    After submitting the form, these form field values display correctly on the thank you page. But I want them to display on the text element within the form, so they can check before submitting. This has worked for me on previous forms, but doesn't appear to be working on new forms.

    Thank you!

    I am able to replicate the issue at my end. It seems that there is an issue with the text field displaying the values of other fields. Let me forward the issue to our backend team to investigate the issue further. Once we have any update in this regard, you'll be posted here.

    Hello carriewilson,

    Thank you for reporting the problem.

    I've issued an update to the codebase that resolves the problem.

    The problem should go away on its own and everything should work as expected.


    If you still encounter problems, please let us know.

    THank you very much
