    Calculations based on form answers

    Asked by Steven on March 18, 2014 at 01:13 PM

    Can forms calculate values? Such as: add costs with the selection of different options?

    I'm trying to create a form for placing an order. For each order placed, we will need to allow the consumer to select different options if requested. The price of the order will depend on the different options chosen.

    Please refer to the uploaded screenshot.

    As you can see, the different options will depict the price.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Unfortunately, this is not currently possible to assign values to Drop Down options without using form source code and custom script. I have attached a feature request ticket to this thread, and hope that we will be able to implement a solution at some point.

    Note, in case you can use Radio Buttons instead of Drop Downs, it is possible to try a workaround provided by Nicholas in this thread.

    We will let you know if we have any updates on this.
