    Purchase order form

    Asked by skinfix on July 08, 2013 at 02:33 PM

    Is there the ability to have an autofilled sequential numbering embedded into a form? I need a purchase order form and would like to have it autofill the next PO number if possible.

    I made some tests and I believe that for you to have it visible it is necessary to edit the form's source code and change the type from "hidden" to "visible":

    <input id="input_3" class="form-hidden" type="visible" name="q3_clickTo" value="25">

    As an alternative you can use the Widget "Random Value Generator":

    Let us know if this is a solution for you.
