    Submit button integration. Is it possible to turn the submit button into a hyperlink or html coded button?

    Asked by HPSteve on August 12, 2011 at 12:24 PM

    I am trying to make it so that it is required to have a form field filled out in order to view a certain part of our website. So I would essentially like to add a hyperlink to my submit button so that they CAN'T click it unless they have filled out the information, then they are forwarded to our catalog BECAUSE they filled out our form. 


    Also I am trying to integrate a large PDF file when they click the button if possible.

    Hi HPSteve

    The best way I can think of to accomplish your first requirement is to set a SHOW condition on the submit button field when the required field in question is completed. The way conditional logic in our product works, if a field is set to be shown under certain circumstances, it will hidden once those particular conditions are NOT met.

    So, here's what you could do:

    1. Load the form in question into the form builder

    2. While on the Setup & Embed tab, click Conditions > Show / Hide a form field > Next

    3. Here's how to setup the condition:
    If [field required to be completed to show submit button] field [Is Filled] Then [Show] [Submit] Field

    4. Save the condition, close the Conditions Wizard and save the form

    That takes care of setting up the condition.

    As to integration of the large PDF file, my suggestion is to upload it to a file sharing service of your choice and provide a link to it on the Thank You page of the form. Since some of your users may be using a dial-up connection, it would be advisable to include a title attribute in the link with a value of: Right-click and select 'Save file as...'

    Thanks for your query. If you require clarification on anything, please let us know. Our team will be happy to assist you further.
