    Hello is there a theme or template that will allow me to add a form where the user picks items from a predefined drop-down menu, all with different prices, and the form will automatically adjust the calculation of the quote depending on the options selected?


    It's a funeral website. The user will select the package options, and there are several, and then a quote will be given based on the options.  Thanks in advance

    You could assign calculation values to each option in DropDown field.

    1) For example, I added Drop-Down and Form calculations fields to the form:

    2) Then I assigned options and calculation values to the drop-down field:

     

    The calculation values assigned would be the actual prices.

    3) When you add the drop-down field to form calculations widget:

    Whatever is selected in drop-down will show in Calculation field:

    That calculation can be passed to payment field as well: https://www.jotform.com/help/275-How-to-Pass-a-Calculation-to-a-Payment-Field

    You can check my test form as well: https://form.jotformpro.com/72702385051956

    Let us know if that could work for you.

    Thank you!

    Thank you.  And can I have various options with calculation fields and the calculation widget will add them all up? And is there a theme or template I can apply this too, to save time?

    Yes, you can use various fields to create such calculation. And the best way would be to create that from scratch since you have to input the products, prices and etc. anyway.

    I added some additional fields to my test form: https://form.jotformpro.com/72702385051956 so please check. You can assign the calculation values to the radio button, checkbox button as well.

    Also, all fields I used are regular fields (no widgets):

    Additionally, you could check our templates section https://www.jotform.com/form-templates maybe you will find some layout that could work for you.

    Let us know if you have any further questions.

    Thank you!

    Ok thanks.  I've put this together https://form.jotformeu.com/72702003025338

    But it's not working on my iPhone.  Do you know why? I have embedded it into Adobe Muse as instructed.
