    Hello, we are hosting a golf tournament and I am capturing player name/handicap ($200 person, selling mulligans ($40/player) and offering various sponsorship opportunities (cart sponsor, lunch sponsor, etc.). I built the form so that the player info is a dynamic text box, mulligans are drop down and sponsorship is checkbox. Each field has values assigned and calculations are in the background. I need to show on the screen in the registration total section a summary of what they selected to purchase along with the associated values of each item. I am trying the "preview before submit" widget but this is not exactly what I am looking for (i.e. if you look it shows # entries for player name/handicap and not the name that was entered in the field which is what they'd want to review). Questions are (a) is this possible with form built as is and (b) if not, is there a better way to build this form so that I can achieve my summary goal. We have another huge event coming up this summer where this would be required so I want to make sure we're building our forms right.

    Another question on

    the dynamic textbox for player/handicap - I have this field as required but it is letting me submit the form without any data in it. I did this while testing it.

    You have set the "Count textboxes?" option to Yes in the Dynamic Textbox widget.

    If you set it to No, the names will appear in the preview.

    But then, you are using this field to make calculations and there is no similar widget that you can use for calculation and which would show the names in the preview.

    What you can do, is show the subtotal in a form calculation widget just under the Name & Handicap field. You can use the unique name of the Name & Handicap field and show it as the label for the Subtotal in Form Calculation Widget. In my case I wrote Subtotal: {names} × 200.

    This is how it is displayed in the preview:

    I cannot think of a better way.

    Thank you. I tried what you suggested - please take a look. It is not passing 200 to the subtotal field. I had to send it from form calc to text field and hide form calc so you can make it read only. Maybe one day we can make form calc fields read only!  :)  Anyway, what am I missing?

    You have to set the "Count textboxes?" to Yes if you want to use the widget field for calculations.

    The subtotal calculation should work properly after that. But note that the names will not be shown in the review.
