    Populate radio button option with text box value?

    Asked by bhouse on August 18, 2011 at 02:58 PM

    I would like to populate a radio button option with the user's first name (text box value) they enetered earlier in the form. Is this possible?

    We are sorry but this is currently not possible. Dynamic population of a radio button, drop down or checkbox option in a form is not allowed, so there is no workaround to this.

    Perhaps you may want to use the form's source code and implement your own custom scripts to make it work.

    To get your form's source codes:

    1.  Go to Setup & Embed tab
    2.  Click Embed Form
    3.  Click Source

    4.  Copy the codes provided in the succeeding screen
