    On payment forms you can calculate the total for the selected products and quantities. But this is not available for regular form fields.

    If you will not submit the form and only calculate totals all you need to do is to create a payment form and then hide the submit button. Then it would work as you wish. The user would only see the totals and not submit the form.

    So close to working, but don't want the values show just the total. It was for a home build cost calculator. Where it has many options and many values. also would have to work out square area. I don't think it will work but thanks for your help.

    You can copy the full form source code to your site and use CSS to hide those numbers.
