    I am trying to use lightbox to open an existing submission

    I have tried editing the base to be 

       base: 'https://form.jotform.com/edit/'

    I have tried changing the formid

       formId: '12345678900000&sid=12345678900000&mode=edit'

    I have tried adding iframe parameters

        iframeParameters: { 'sid': '12345678900000' , 'mode' : 'edit'},

    Nothing is working for me, is it possible to use lightbox in this way?

    Thanks

    Ian

    Dear Ian,

    Unfortunately, the lightbox codes you have written are not correct. It is not possible to edit the codes in that way. Please find the correct information in the following guides:

    https://www.jotform.com/help/203-How-to-Auto-popup-a-Lightbox-Form 

    https://www.jotform.com/help/83-Adding-parameters-in-Lightbox-and-Feedback-forms 

    We do not have submission ID parameter in the Lightbox embed codes, currently. It is not possible to edit submissions in the lightbox form.

    As an another workaround, you can add an edit link to the Thank You page as you can see the screenshot below:

    However, when you click on Edit Submission link, the form will open in the new tab. The submission will not be edited in the lightbox mode. 

    I hope this helps. Please tell us if you need any further clarification.
