    Assign a number to a radio or check box's option for Form Calculation

    Asked by HRMink on March 20, 2014 at 08:58 PM

    For example I list three different options. Each option has a count and price. For example the option will have the checkbox and next to it will say "01-15 images :: $25". The form calculation pulls the 10 when I want it to pull the $750. I know if I have the price first it will pull the first number it recognizes but I dont want to list the price first in the option. 

    I also understand I can do a separate 'question' radio / checkbox for each service. I could then put the image count in the question and the only option could be the price however they become too spaced out on my form.

    Hi, you need to add the price first, since as you mentioned it will take the first amount.

    I will submit a request to see if it possible to make the widget to take the amount that has the dollar sign, however we can not assure you this will be approved, or if approved how long it will take to be implemented.

    Oh one more question. Not sure if I have to open a new thread or not. 

    Is there a way to set the Calculation box to default as a 'Currency'? So when the number populates there is a $ and comma where needed.
