    How does this work for multiple arrays?
    Here is the HTML for my input:
    Why doesn't a URL reference to myProducts:1025:0 give me the number inputted in this Product widget?

    Hi Devora,

    Could you kindly give us links to the forms that you are using to pass the data, so that we can take a further look and guide you further?

    Thank you!

    If you are trying to pass on the value from the product list field to a short text field on another form, then it is not possible.

    You can pass on data between the same field formats.

    Unfortunately, passing the value between 2 Product List fields via URL parameter value is not yet possible.

    So you will need to use Single or multiple choice fields on the forms to show the products. Then use URL parameters to pass on data.

    That is what I am trying to avoid. The layout of the product list is so nice, it's hard to make something similar with a set of other fields.
