    Can you add button icons to a form to have it popup a window from another form or grid report?

    You may use the text element to add an image of a button and redirect it to your form.

    The text element has a source code in which you can embed your HTML image code.

    Click on your Text element>Edit text and click on the icon <> to open the source code.

    Sample HTML code:<p><a target="_blank" href="https://form.jotform.com/90665041495965" > <img src="https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTAkBT3oz-Y-CMZggFx78BwghULmvN3ou7cPCE-fw2dxbvYE5i9xg" alt="my picture" width="128" height="128" /> </a></p>

    You may change the highlighted form URL with your own URL.

    Please give it a try and let us know if this fits your requirements.

    This is most helpful, I had played around with text source code but I didn't get this far with the button icon. This would work if it was a small popup window instead of replacing my form. The goal is to display data from a popup grid report such as inventory IDs or inventory number to be used in the form being filled out. Thanks

    If you use the text field as a custom button then it can only redirect the webpage to another external URL.

    If you like, you can check the iFrame embed widget. That widget has an option to embed a form or webpage so you can show or hide it based on the user's answer.
