    Advanced Forms...

    Asked by Jon Dunn  on July 22, 2014 at 03:05 PM

    Dear Jot Form,

    We are a website design company and have to outsource any development we can't handle in house but we primarily use Joomla for our sites.  We have a Jot Form account for almost every site.  We have several clients who are on the Jot Form premium account. 

    My point of emailing you today is that we have a current client that has too many forms on their site created in a joomla component called Chrono Forms. 

    We have had nothing but issues in the last four years with email problems.

    I was hoping you could take a look at our advanced form here: http://speedgraffix.com/Honda-Online-Form/psycho.html

    and let me know if this is all possible to re-create in jotform.  This account would be a premium account for Jot Form.

    The hardest thing for me to understand is if the styling would work in Jot Form.

    Also there is a complex thing that will need to happen with the "Choose your custom colors" there are 4 drop downs and those will dynamically change colors with the .svg code system. 

    We are desperate to find a solid solution.  If not Jot Form please recommended a system. 

    Thank you very much for taking the time to read my email.

    Hi,

    There are very few things I have seen that Jotform cannot do.  I had a look at your link and I could not find what the drops downs were updating.  If you do need a custom script to run along side the form, you can grab your forms source code.

    Or a crude workaround in Jotform itself would be to use conditionally hidden/shown fields to pop up different pictures based on the drop downs.  This would take a good deal of time though based on the number of combinations.

    For styling you can inject custom CSS:

    You can style each field/background/header just about anything the way you would like.

    For the sections that is in columns rather than rows:

    Everything else seems pretty straight forward as far as the form goes.  Just lots of text fields and image fields for the images.

    If you do decide to go ahead with setting this up in Jotform and run into any issues, please let us know and we will be happy to help with whatever you need.

    Thank you for using Jotform!
