    Pop up Thank you and redirect to complete submissions

    Asked by ggerzevske1 on February 10, 2013 at 11:26 PM

    I was wondering is there a way to setup my jot form contact form so that when a user hits the submit button it pops up a pop up box that says the form was submitted and the user has to hit on to continue the submission process?

    Unfortunately that's not possible with the current version of JotForm. However, the pop-up box can be achieved when you get your form source code and apply extra codes there to create such function. It works something like this: http://idarktech.myartsonline.com/jotform/popup/test_jotform_popup.html

    To do this, you will need to add a function called onsubmit. On the link you provided you will see the code


    Note that you must embed your form using IFRAME

    In addition to my colleague, here's a guide on how to apply the pop-up function.

    1. Get your form source code. Follow this guide: How to get your Form Source Code

    2. Add this script at the top part of the entire form code. http://pastie.org/pastes/6116605/text

    3. Now to call this on your form, simply add an onsubmit event on your form tag. onsubmit="validateForm('popup.html',400,200);"


    <form class="jotform-form" action="http://submit.jotform.com/submit/23303095789965/" method="post" name="form_23303095789965" id="23303095789965" accept-charset="utf-8"   onsubmit="validateForm('popup.html',400,200);">

    Be sure to replace popup.html file, to the HTML file you'd like to pop up over the form when submit button is clicked.

    4. To avoid the submissions page to load on the new tab, simply declare an iframe code. Add it before the ending </form> tag. Example:

    <iframe name="loadself" width="0" height="0">

    5. Last is to add a target attribute with the iframe name value e.g. loadself under <form code as seen on the first example above, highlighted in skyblue.

    Let us know if you have any difficulties with any of these steps. Thanks!

    The sample page I give you won't close the popup window automatically until you click "X" to closed it. In the popup page, you can add the Google Link there. Well, it still redirect your user to your custom URL.

    Hey Friends,

    It is possible and I have done it  . There is nothing to worry and not the hard work , just some logics should be implemented . Here is what i did  .

    Copy the source code of the jot form and customized it with the following steps .

    1). Get Css and html for the simple popup . Keep the popup html under the form .

    2). Here is one button to submit the form . and in the popup you have the link to display the popup. Replace  the submit button of the form with popup link .  and keep submit button in the popup .

    That's it , When you will run the page ,  You will see the popup link in place of submit button . When you click and open the popup here you will get the message and submit button .

    Clicking on the submit button will trigger the action you have assigned to the jot backend .

    Use that updated source code to display the form .

    Hope i have explained it better . But you can reach to me if any confusion .



    Regards ,
