    Is there a way to populate a radio button with the selection from a prior radio button?

    Asked by jim314 on March 08, 2014 at 04:51 PM

    I would like to be able to have a tournament pick-em style contest using a jotform. Example here: http://www.jotform.com//?formID=40665944508159.

    Ideally, the Game 1 result would populate the first radio option for Game 5. The Game 2 result would populate the second radio option for Game 5. The Game 3 result would populate the first radio option for Game 6. The Game 4 result would populate the second radio option for Game 6. The Game 5 result would populate the first radio option for Game 7. The Game 6 result would populate the second radio option for Game 7.

    Can this be done using jotform?

    Thanks,

    Jim Fleming

    To find the values to prepopulate your form you can use the following app: Field_Prepopulator.

    This will allow you to obtain the neccesary code so you can perform such prepopulation.

    Example of the Field_Prepopulator:

    Thank you.

    Sorry, I'm not trying to pre-populate. I already know the team names to start the form with. I'm trying to populate round two with the results that the user chooses for round one. Does that make sense?

    I see what you mean, I may have missed that you are not referring to the radio option selection, but rather the acutal label of that radio option. This unfortunately is not possible with the current tools of the form builder. One possible way to achieve this may or may not be by utilizing the form's source code and implementing the proper functions with tools such as Prototype or Angular.JS

    I am not able to promise I can have this working. But I will try testing further alternatives, i will let you know through this thread once I have any updates on this. 

    Thanks
