    How to calculate total?

    Asked by mmartin077 on August 03, 2012 at 11:43 AM


    I need to show 4 or 5 different products on my form AND show a Total ($USD).  I do NOT need to integrate with a credit card payment processor.  I just need a user between to select 1 to 5 products and show the total on the screen.


    Any ideas on how I can do this?

    Hello Michael


    We currently don't have a calculation tool for textboxes besides the payment integration tool.

    But, If you are familiar with javascript, this workaround that my colleague Abajan did for somebody else would work for you. Of course you would need to download your form's source code and apply custom javascript cod for your particular case.
