    Hello, advanced functions such as these are possible only by embedding the Form's source code on to your site, only then are you able to integrate more advanced scripting to interact with your form.

    These are the steps to obtain your Form's Source Code:

    Click on Embed Form on the top toolbar of your Form Editor

    Click on Source on the Embed Form Wizard

    Copy the Source Code

    Paste the Source Code on to your sites code, the code must go between the <body> tags.
