    Passing Frame URL value in Iframe Embed Widget

    Asked by Advolink1 on May 29, 2017 at 02:31 AM

    Is it possible to dynamically pass the value of the Iframe Embed Widget like passing values to other form widgets? I am using the following to try to accomplish this and I'm not having any success:

    Dear Denise,

    I have cloned your form named "Concept" on my side in order to test it.

    I have seen that you have embedded another form with a pre-population link to the form. However, that pre-population link is not correct. It doesn't work correctly in the normal case also.

    You should take the field names in order to prepopulate the fields as you can see the example link below:

    https://form.jotform.us/71168406898166?input43[first]=Denise&input43[last]=Stephans&guestEmail=whyw8@sbcglobal.net&guestPhone=101256

     

    Please check the following guide in order to see how to prepopulate fields: https://www.jotform.com/help/71-Prepopulating-Fields-to-Your-JotForm-via-URL-Parameters 

     

    If you use the correct pre-population link and embed that link into iFrame embed widget in the main form, the case will work correctly as you can see the screenshot below:

     

     

    Please test and if you need further assistance, do not hesitate to contact us. We will be glad to help you.

     

    Regards,
