How can I create a quote form for a custom item that has many complex options and have the form calculate the total?

    I asked this before, but I did a very poor job of giving an example.  See the quote form below.

    I'd love for the form to show customers the monetary total of their options as they select them.

    In it's current state, it shows the values of their options, but it doesn't add them up for the customer.

    Any ideas?  Thanks!

    When it comes to payment calculation. The best step to take is to step up a payment tool on your form. So that the user may be able to choose their options just prior to purchase.

    Basic Example Form:

    Kindly review my example form. And do let us know if you need further assistance, thank you.

    Thanks for your answer, but I'm afraid it doesn't address my question in full.  With my form, the selected options (such as colors) have different monetary values.  For instance, one color may be an additional upcharge, and another color may be no upcharge.   In your example, all the options have no upcharges.   Can you make the "Blue" mug be an additional $1 ?

    Nevermind.  I see how to do it.  I'll be back when I'm stumped again.  :)
