    Hi,

    You have to separate each parameter with ampersand symbol &

    Example, your sample parameter should supposed to be this.

    ?yourChoix=23&session=myname&morefield=more

    Use a question mark (?) on the first part once, then use ampersand (&) to the rest of the URL parameter.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Of course! I'm stupid. Thank you.

    How can I populate a text field? There's no 'name' attribut.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the additional info. In order to see the correct name attribute, please load your form on either Firefox or Chrome browser and right click any field that you want to investigate then click Inspect Element(Q)

     

    You should see the field's name attribute to prepopulate. Like for example in the email field, the name is q3_email3. Just omit the prefix and you will now have the correct name to use for prepopulation. If you need further assistance, please do not hesitate to ask .Thank you

    Yes thank you very much but my question was about a text field or header field without input. I just want prepopulate with a read only information which depends on different parameters set outside the form.

    Hello,

    I think the example of my colleague is without any input value. The name "q3_email3" will be the one to populate values in the field so if the "q3_email3" field is blank then no values will populate like the one stated in this guide http://www.jotform.com/help/71-Prepopulating-fields-to-your-JotForm-via-URL-parameters values will depend on the name of the field. I'm sorry that is how I understand your question you can clarify a bit what you mean by "Text field without input".

    Hello,

    My question was about non-editable field and I found an answer here: http://www.jotform.com/answers/112700-Hello-How-can-I-pre-populate-the-form-with-a-non-editable-field-as-in-t

    It's not the answer I hoped (I have to integrate the source code) but it's OK. Thanks to the very professional support team.

    @prolutive,

    Oh I see what you mean now. Sorry if I wasn't able to get your question at first. Yes the guide made by my colleague is the perfect example. You have to embed your form source into your site then just add the value disabled="disabled" into field that you don't want to be editable. 

    Example:

    Editable: http://form.jotform.co/form/33532394667866?fullName3[first]=Steve&fullName3[last]=Smith

    Non Editable: http://jedsamples.tk/jotform/noneditable%20value.htm?fullName3[first]=Steve&fullName3[last]=Smith

     

    I guess what you were looking for was something that doesn't need to have a form source modification, right?

    Yes that's right. But I've already made a good application with jotForm. It's a good product.
