    I am unable to set values for individual options when I create a drop down list, why?

    Asked by saadi357 on January 15, 2014 at 12:03 PM

    Need to set different numeric values for each option appearing in drop down fields and then calculate total price based on selection.

    Thank you for contacting us. Is this what you are trying to achieve? By assigning certain values to the items of a dropdown box?


    Then calculate the options value? Unfortunately, you can not assign numeric values to Item names of the dropdown box. You may have to use the form source code and host it on your server then assign them manually by editing the source.

    If this is not the one you are inquiring, I apologize and feel free to correct me. Thank you
