    Counting number of dynamic textbox entries

    Asked by samlbc88 on April 14, 2017 at 06:52 AM

    Hi,

    Based on the number of dynamic text box entries, i have another field below to count the number of entries. Under dynamic text box widget settings, i have activated the "count textbox" radio button under widget settings for dynamic text box. 

    In the field below, ive used the form calculation widget and the count function. However it does not seem to be working. Please advice.

    Regards,

    Sam
