    You can check this article. https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/substring

    The substring widget uses the JavaScript String substring() Method. You can check the codes here.


    Then you can create your own widget by using this guide.


    And edit widgetSettings.

    Hope you find this information useful.

    Please let us know if you have further questions.

    Good evening!
    Thank you for feedback!

    I found example code of Substring Widget: http://widgets.jotform.io/substring/substring.min.js.
    But I see:
    - it's not iFrame Widget but without iFrame Widget!!!

    Can I also create not iFrame Widget with needed widget settings (I can setup them for iFrame Widget only) and more easy communicated with other jotForms elements (because cross-origin limit is blocker for me) ?

    Glad to hear that you were able to locate an example code for Substring widget.

    If you want to download the form's source code and upload it to your server, please refer to this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/104-How-to-get-the-Full-Source-Code-of-your-Form.

    Can I also create not iFrame Widget with needed widget settings?

    This is a duplicate post. Please wait for the reply of my colleague on this thread: https://www.jotform.com/answers/1358224.
