    Hi Paulo,

    Yes, that is possible and it seems like you already manage to do that calculation in your form upon checking it. Here's what I see: http://www.screencast.com/t/PjQuMpW9LCJJ

    Hi Paulo,

    Do you mean that you want the currency to be shown in the Total box instead of the Destino box?

    Yes that's it... I wanted that in the Destino box only appeared text like: "tavira", "monte gordo", "cabanas". And in Total box i wanted the total amount in €.

    Ex. If i choose tavira destiny with 2 passengers, the total would show 24€.


    Clear now? I hope so. Can i achieve this?


    Thanks for the support.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    The Price and currency cannot be hidden from dropdowns, but you can hide them from Radio buttons and checkboxes. And you cannot include the symbol in the Calculation/total field because it will break the calculation. So, what you can do is to add the symbol to the total field label.

    So, your form wouyld look like this: http://form.jotform.co/form/40694431775865

    This is what I did:

    1. Once I replaced the "Destino" dropdown field by a Radio buttons and updated the fields in the calculation wizard, I enclosed the prices between the tags <i> and </i>, that makes the text style cursive.

    2. Then, I injected this CSS code to the form to hide the prices: 



    color:transparent !important;


    3. Then add the currency symbol to total label.

    Here is a video where you can see the steps I followed: 


    I hope this helps. Please inform us if you still need further assistance with this inquiry.

    I understand that it could be a solution. But the problem is that the number of total destiny's will be around 20... So, with this new solution i would have around 20 radio buttons... That's the reason i wanted to do with a dropdown box...

    Hi again Paulo,

    I don't think it's possible to do this in the form builder. So, you would have to get the full source of the form and embed it into a web page along with a script. That's what I did here. The script can be seen at the bottom of the page's source, just before it's closing body tag.

    Is that the sort of functionality you wish to have in your own form?
