    How can I get the inputs from my HTML text boxes ?

    Asked by vishal1gupta on September 12, 2014 at 04:41 PM

    These are simple input boxes with labels and names (embedded in an HTML table structure).


    The user fills in the fields, but I can't get any of these field values in the submission at JotForm. Since the input table was not a standard form template, I had to rely on HTML to do this in a clean and obvious way.


    Please help as this is the last step before I can publish my form to the world.

    The TEXT field (from Form Tools) is a Read-Only field. So, you cannot really get an input data using that field.

    An alternative input grid like field I can suggest you instead use is the Spreadsheet Widget 


    You will be able to get the submission data of the spreadsheet widget.

    Hope this help. Inform us if you need further assistance.
