    Awesome...can the calculation widget integrates with Paypal...same query as David King...without having to configure the Paypal module to accept "donations" and ask the users to report the amount of the calculated field manually into the payment field. thanks

    As I have mentioned to the post made by David, that is not possible in our form builder. You would need to get the form source codes: How to Get Form Source Codes then add a custom script that would auto populate the donation box based on the user selection and inputs from another field.

    I cannot provide you a working example, but I can do my best to come up for one if you'd like this method. However, this workaround will depend on our availability.

    I'd also like to mentioned some disadvantage:

    -Using the source codes, if there are changes to the form, you will have to redo the whole process since updates made to the form builder are not automatically carried out to the form source codes.

    -You would need to save the source codes as an HTML file then you will have to host it to your own server. There is no way you can import back the modified source codes to our form builder.
