    In short, is it possible to retrieve the Jotform form name in a Jotform custom widget?

    We are attempting to create custom Jotform widget to perform an action when a form is submitted. However, we need the form name that is being submitted.


    It appears the form name does exist in the form page under the meta tag: <meta property="og:title" content="The Jotform Form Name">. Since the widget is rendered in an iframe, we cannot read the parent DOM directly.

    We have successfully created widgets following these steps: and can see the JavaScript class JFCustomWidget and JFCustomWidget utils. Is it possible to use these JS classes to read the form name?

    Any assistance is appreciated.
