    Calculation Widget: Variable Text

    Asked by mogreenindustry on June 04, 2014 at 12:05 PM

    Is there a way to add some kind of variable text with the output of my calculation? For example I'm looking for something like this as the output:


    [Calculation Label] [variable-field] = [custom-text] $[calculation]

    [Registration $5 * Number Attending] [3] = [Member Registration $[15]


    I'm trying to output something like that, but all I can currently get with the Calculation Widget is this:

    [Registration $5 * Number Attending] [15]


    Is there a way I can show how many people they've chosen to register? If This doesn't make sense I understnad, it's hard for me to explain but I could try to go into more detail if need be.

    I'm tryign to do that, but using the registration as like a placceholder in my calculation, so in that example the final calculation label (right above submit) would read:


    "Member Registration [number attending number here] = 5"


    So if I set the Number Attendign to 2 the final calulation label would read:


    "Member Registration 2 = 10"


    It takes whatever is placed in the Number Attending Input and placed it in the label as a kind of variable text.
