    Is it possible to only have 1 (required) option check box for "I agree with your terms" ?(Detailed)

    Asked by kimmiandmikki on March 06, 2011 at 11:50 PM

    I tried deleting the question, but it sometimes shows up as "..." on the form when I load it. So I decided to put "-" and since I have the required option on, it shows up as "- *" on top of the "I agree..." It doesn't look nice. Is there anything I can do to just have the check box and "I agree... etc" ? Thanks.

    Unfotunately, you cannot remove the * and the title when you wish to have it as required with using simple options of Jotform.

    What I can suggest to you is inject a CSS to remove the display of the title and the asterisk:

    1. Utilize that title by identifying it as "Terms and Conditions" as well as placing it as required (for your record purposes)

    2. Inject a CSS by editing your form, go to Setup & Share tab, click Preferences

             a. Click Form Styles tab
             b. On Inject Custom CSS add this: #label_25 { display: none; }
             c. Click the green button to save       

    I have checked your Totara order form and saw the id of the HTML tag that encloses the * and the title.

    If you can't figure this out just let me know

    Oh my, sorry, I didn't think about doing that lol ! It worked, thanks a bunch !! I have another question, I hope it's not too much to ask.

    I have these text box fields that ask for the price of the item they want to purchase. If the customer chooses to add more items, how do I make another text box field to show the total of the prices they just entered? Here is a screenshot:

    Unfortunately, there is no feature for that part in text box fields. 

    Although there is an automated calculating label is part of the features for integrated payment systems such as paypal here in JotForm.

    If you're not planning putting up a payment gateway, you might want to try out some javascripts if you're inclined to programming, I'm just not sure if it will work properly as it may have a conflict with JotForm.

    Hope this helps
