    How can I assign calculation values to radio buttons then pass it onto a payment field

    Asked by mreinan on May 17, 2017 at 02:34 PM

    Your support is great.  You sent me a form earlier that allows either a one-time donation or reocurring.   But i'd like if the value could be determined by the radio buttons.  So if someone clicks on $25 it fills both boxes in the form.  I am not sure how to do this.

    To achieve this, you'd have to do two things:

    1. Learn how to assign calculation values to radio buttons.

    Complete guide: How-to-Assign-Calculation-Value

    2. Then learn how to pass a calculation to a payment field.

    Give that a spin and let us know if you'd need more help.

    Hey Matt, your radio buttons don't have any calculation values yet (shown on #1 on my previous reply).

    Please set them up first, then use them on your Donation Amount Form Calculation Widget. I strongly urge you to refer to the guides I cited as they have all the things you need to set this up.
