    Prepopulate date field based on a condition without modifying the source code

    Asked by Marc on April 18, 2013 at 10:07 PM

    Is it possible to prepopulate the date field, if for example a person chooses a condition:


    radio box choices:


      new -- > todays date

      renewal -->  07/31/2013


    without using hiding controls or modifying the source code.


    I don't want to hide the date picker control because when transfering information, I want the same field name regardless of what the user chooses.

    Hi Marc,

    Unfortunately that can't be done on the form builder. The only way you can achieved that is to modify your form source code and create custom script to get the desired function you want, which I don't think you'd prefer. Sorry about that.
