Can jotform do this??Asked by vision2die4 on January 02, 2014 at 04:38 PM
Happy new year!
I have made a 'mock up' of what I would like to create in Jotform. I would like to know if Jotform is able to do the things I am asking before I spend lots of my time trying to achieve it. I recently paid for premium membership so I may have to request a refund if (as im within my 30 days) if I can't do what I need with jotform.
Please can someone have a look at the attached image and let me know if Jotform is capable of this and if so how I would go about building it?

First, let me apologize for the delay. The mock-up can be somewhat built using JotForm's Form Builder. You may need to customize some of the elements by injecting CSS Code or by fully exporting the form's source code to embed on your website:
To be straight forward some of the functions may not make it to the final form. But nevertheless I would advice to first create the base form and we can assist you once you are well on your way.
Just as an example form this is a very basic mock-up of what the payment tool on a form can achieve. Nevertheless it can be customized a bit further such as using JotForm widgets to select the color instead of a drop down menu, or using the source code of your form fo fully customize it by embedding it to a website.
If you need further support, do let us know. Thank you
Hi, thanks for answering, the most important but for me is the image swatch i.e. when a user selects different drop-downs the preview image changes to show them what the product will look like. Is that bit possible?
Yes, that part is feasible. Actually, the entire form might be doable but the big question is "How long would it take to produce the desired result?"
For starters, by my calculation it looks like you will need to create 144 t-shirt images:
4 types of t-shirts * 6 t-shirt colours * 6 text colours
It would be preferable that all of the images be of the same dimensions (to prevent unpleasant visual shifts as the user selects different choices in the dropdowns)
The Conditions tool can be used to show each image according to the selections made by the user and page breaks could take care of hiding Step 1 when on Step 2 and so on.
Perhaps my colleagues have other ideas on how to go about creating such a form.
I understand, thank you very much, I'll get to work and get back to you guys when I get stuck (which I am sure I will) :)
