    Auto Sum Client Input

    Asked by thecpusquad on February 19, 2013 at 01:10 PM

    I am building a form for online dress order. I do not want to set the price of every single dress i sell because there are too many and each designer I resell for changes their price and thier produc to often for this to be economical.


    I would like to have fields where my clients can enter the numbers and to have a total appear on the bottom for example:


    Dress Price $

    Shipping $

    Slaes Tax $

    Extra Length $

    Additional Size Charge $

    Rush CHarge $


    I want them to be able to input the number and for the total to appear so they know how much they will be charged. Some of the prices are flat rate and some are different for every client. Example- shipping is flat rate $25 but sales tax is 6.5% only on customers in the state of florida. Help please. 

    I see the grading scale and it will sort of due but how do I get rid of the / symbol on the total. If i could get rid of the / I would use this tool. Please help me.

    I also looked online for some basic html forms. They look great but i cant get the summation part to work. The summation part is in javascript could this be the problem?

    This is my HTML code

    Qty1 : <input id="qty2" name="qty" type="text" /><br />

    Qty2 : <input id="qty2" name="qty" type="text" /><br />

    Qty3 : <input id="qty3" name="qty" type="text" /><br />

    Qty4 : <input id="qty4" name="qty" type="text" /><br />

    Qty5 : <input id="qty5" name="qty" type="text" /><br />

    Qty6 : <input id="qty6" name="qty" type="text" /><br />

    Qty7 : <input id="qty7" name="qty" type="text" /><br />

    Qty8 : <input id="qty8" name="qty" type="text" /><br />

    <br /><br /> Total : <input id="total" name="total" type="text" /></p>

    Unfortunately, that is not possible with Jotform form builder. Downloading your form source codes and adding additional Javascripting to the given codes may have this possible. Let me forward this thread to my colleague who knows this type of coding (as I am not well verse about this) but I cannot promise you anything about that since this is outside from Jotform anymore.
