    How to add the total in a text box ?

    Asked by kimmiandmikki on March 07, 2011 at 11:52 AM

    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?

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to do this with Jotform. Jotform can do calculations if the form is a payment form. For example you can add a "Paypal" integration from the "Payment Tools" and then add as much as product you want on the payment wizard. Then your users can select multiple products and quantities for them and then see the total right on the form. Calculations for Non-Payment forms is already on our feature requests list but I can not predict if/when it will be implemented.
