    Calculator Widget

    Asked by Wtfuck on April 16, 2017 at 11:38 AM

    Hey !

    I need to know if it's possible to have complete response of my equation :

    For example if I type on the calculator : 4x4=16

    I want to have 4x4=16 and not only 16 on my email and my spreadsheet

    It need to be composed in two field :

    1 only the equation : 4x4

    2 the result : 16

    4*4=16 will be shown inside of the email and on submission page, only if your users enter that inside of calculation widget, using keyboard and not equal option of the widget. When equal option is used on the Calculator Widget, calculation will be performed. This means that your users will have to calculate result and enter it inside of the widget.

    If you need to know whole equation, I would suggest you to use basic fields instead and to perform calculation with conditional logic. This way it will also be easier to separate the equation and the result.

    Here is my demo form: https://form.jotformpro.com/71054971151957 

    Feel free to test it and clone it

    On my demo form I used Form Calculation widget to capture the equation. Make sure that fields are set as strings (A-Z).

    To calculate total I used conditional logic. I have set my conditions like this.
