    Hello everybody Specially to Aytekin abi.

    thanks to jotform make me able to create easy form, so any costumer will be able to fill it out easily. And i can get my order. Also with PayPal payment tools i even don't need and extra checkout.

      Everything is good but my problem is i have 2 extra option on my items (please check form from here http://www.newpendant.com/p03g.php)

    First costumer have to buy pendant.

    And if they want to engrave picture on, it will be extra charge end they have to click on (Engrave my picture)

    And if they want to engrave text on back it will be extra charge end they have to click on (Engrave my text)

    But what same of my costumers doing are choosing only two extra option and paying for only (engrave picture) and (Engrave text) and they don't realize they are not paying for pendant.

    I wish to when any costumer fill my forms, The first option (Add to my card) Pendant be included already. Any costumer when fill my form i want to pendant price be included it self.

    Are there any way to do this. Or What else can i do to make it better, easier and understandable

    Not: My English is not perfect i am sorry for misspelling

    Hello dante01,

    I would like to suggest a few of things:

    1.  Change the "Add to Card" description of your pendant to something like "Pendant".  The title you have placed may be confusing the buyer what it is so they are not clicking it.

    2.  It would be best if you can copy the whole source code and place it inside your HTML file instead of embedding the source.  This will make your form more flexible and insert javascripts.  When you are able to do so, you can make a code where if the 1st checkbox is not checked, the submit button will be disabled.  The submit button will be enabled only when the 1st checkbox is checked.

    Here is my sample form copied from your form: http://ravnos.t35.com/smallheartpendant.html

    I'd be happy to provide you assistance on how I made this form.  Just let me know.

    Hello dante01,

    Here are a few things that you need to do:

    1. find the name of the form.
    2. find the ID of the checkbox

    Step 1:

    For my sample formpage, here's my form name:

    <form class="jotform-form" action="http://www.jotform.com/submit.php" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" name="form_11150652948" id="11150652948" accept-charset="utf-8">

         Note:  My form name is different from yours

    And this is the checkbox, take note of the ID:

    <input class="form-checkbox validate[required]" type="checkbox" id="input_40_1004" name="q40_products[][id]" value="1004" />

    Step 2:

    Now what I did was create this javascript and placed this in my header tag (I have set to bold the parts that you might need to replace depending on your form's name and ID:

    <script type="text/javascript">

    function theChecker()

    Step 3:

    After I exported my source to my own HTML file, I added a name property in the button name="thebutton".  So from:

    <button id="input_7" type="submit" class="form-submit-button">

    It becomes:

    <button id="input_7" type="submit" class="form-submit-button" name="thebutton">

    Step 4:

    I also added an onload property in my <body> tag so that it will load the button as disabled:

    <body onload="document.form_11150652948.thebutton.disabled=true">

    Step 5:

    Finally, to make your button toggle the enable and disable switch for the checkbox, you will need to add an onClick property in the checkbox and add the function:

    <input class="form-checkbox validate[required]" type="checkbox" id="input_40_1004" name="q40_readyTo[][id]" value="1004" onclick="theChecker()" />

    Step 6:

    Save your form and test it.

    Hi dante01,

    To answer now on behalf of liyam, you can create Conditions to make such an effect possible. Here's how you do it:

    1) Go to the Setup & Embed tab of your Form Builder toolbar and click Conditions

    2) Once the Conditions Wizards appears, select Show/Hide A Form Field option and click Next

    3) Refer to the screenshot below and follow the settings:

    4) Click Save.

    The above condition simply means that if Product Item #1 in the Product List is checked, the Submit button will be enabed/shown.

    We hope you find this information useful. Please let us know if you need further assistance. Thank you for using JotForm!

    By the way, the form I created is just a copy from your form, it is not a complete clone so don't use my form's source. 

    The changes to look into are the form names and ID's.

    If you need assistance just let me know.

    Hmmm.. Now I think Allan's solution is quicker to implement.  You can try that out

    Hello dante01 and liyam,


    You can choose either of these. liyam's version is more creative and has a more sophisticated feel, whereas the second version I did is easier to implement. So it depends on which factor is more important for you. Either way, your JotForm form will work excellently into your website.


    Thanks, the solution you made was my inspiration. At first look, I actually thought we had the same solution that's why I gave out instructions to dante01.
