    Hello Adeeb,

    If I understand your question correctly, you want to display your form in click of a button or link button. Is that correct?

    There are multiple ways to achieve your requirement:

    1. You can add a link button in your web page and then add the hyperlink to open your form in a popup window. Alternatively, you can simply add a hyper link of your form in web page. Please check the screenshot below on how to get the popup embed code and direct URL:

    2. Another option is to embed Lightbox form in your web page. This will open a modal window which will display your form. The following guide should help you:  https://www.jotform.com/help/220-How-to-Create-a-Lightbox-Form 

    It is also possible to auto load your lightbox form in your web page. Please check the following guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/203-How-to-Auto-popup-a-Lightbox-Form 

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
