    Having users select the amount of an item.

    Asked by johnchartrand on October 27, 2012 at 06:55 PM

    http://screencast.com/t/cSVWlsaVcR

    This is a screen capture of a portion of my form. I want to be able to also have it so that users can, not only select an item, but also select how many of that item.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi John,

    You can try using the matrix field with the textbox input type. I did it on a test form. Using the textbox, The textbox should be number only, if there is no input, then the particluar item was not ordered/selected.

    You can also try using the Purchase Order field in payment tools. This will give the capability to select multiple items with added option for quantity. The drawback for this is all the items will be in one straigh line only.

    Hope this help. Please inform us if you have further inquiry.

    Thanks.

    You are quite welcome John.

    Btw, if you noticed, using the matrix field textbox will not have the restriction as to what data a user will put.. i.e. put 'word' instead of 'number'

    But a sincere user will know how to follow a simple rule when filling up the form. Aside from adding some context (some words that Qty is number?), it is obvious that Qty is supposedly number.

    You can also put a review of the submission in the Thank you page. Test this form and submit.

    The thank you page should look like this.

     

    Thanks.

    I followed all your steps but it only shows the top portion of the submission and not the whole thing.

    By the way, if you can re-embed your form using iframe embed code, this should fixed it. Here's How to get your Form's Iframe Code

    That sounds great!

    Though, I just noticed a little problem I've checked your form using chrome browser and it was cut off. Try increasing your iframe height to 2995px on your iframe embed code.

     

    <iframe allowtransparency="true" src="//form.jotform.ca/form/22967983069270" frameborder="0" style="width:100%; height:2995px; border:none;" scrolling="no"></iframe>

    Thanks!

    That fixes that. the form displays differently in Chrome and Safari than it does in Firefox, but no big deal.

    thanks
