passing variable to lightbox script works, but form does not resize

    Asked on August 02, 2012 at 04:12 PM

    I want to use the same lightbox form through all of my sites. 

    However I would like to collect a city variable via a hidden field.

    I have tried to pass the city on the end of the form ID and have made that work by editing the source of the form itself but as soon as I edit the form via the web iterface the server file is recreated? 

    IE: formId:'22130158359.html?city=LA',

    What is the correct way to pass a variable from the source of the lightbox into a hidden field?

    Thank you for contacting us.

    You can use a method described in the following article:

    Adding parameters in Lightbox and Feedback forms

    However, it works with our Prototype based lightbox code only. When you get your form Lightbox code it looks like:

    < script src="//" type="text/javascript" >


    g=feedback2 - means jQuery based lightbox code (it is our updated lightbox code)

    g=feedback - means Prototype based lightbox code (it is the old lightbox code, and it works with added parameters)

    In other words, you will have to change g=feedback2 to g=feedback in your lightbox code to use pre-population method from the mentioned above article.


    You can also add a Default Value to your hidden field.

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know.

    hi the above article is not working for me, i am trying to pass a value to hidden field but on submit its not passing the value to the back end.

    My Code is :

       <script src="//" type="text/javascript">

    new JotformFeedback({

    formId: 'xxxxxxxxxxx',

    base: '',

    windowTitle:'Registration Form',

    iframeParameters: {

    'q30_pixelCode': 'CC22Jaz'










    <a class="lightbox-xxxxxxxxxx"><div class="Button">Register Now</div></a>

    i have made few changes in script tag and its working but now i have a new problem :

    Code changes i have made 

    <script src="//" type="text/javascript"> 

    'pixelCode': 'CC22Jaz'

    the problem is if i use feedback2.js?3.2.3101 then form is re-sizing automatically according to the form fields and window size but the value is not passing through.

    on the other hand if i use  feedback.js?3.2.3101 then value is passing successfully but form dose not authorize and vertical and horizontal scrolls are added to the form.  

    i am looking for a solution in which i can pass the value and form should re-size automatically.

    @ dcw_web


    Can you please share to us the URL of the website where we can check the embedded form and the lightbox code.

    We will be able to figure out a better suggestion if we can check them in actual.

    We will wait for your update.
