    Is it possible to insert text from text box field inside TEXT HTML field

    Asked by xpressivemobile on September 14, 2014 at 09:34 AM


    I am trying to create an online order form.  Part of my form will have terms and conditions.  At bottom, I used the Esignature widget, so client can sign.

    Here is my qeustion.  One of the text field boxes asks the client to enter company name.  Is it possible to insert what the client types in this box inside the terms I created as HTML text?  Sort of like a personalized token system?

    This would be helpful for me, because when user gets to terms, and reads them, their company name they entered will show automatically.

    The TEXT field (found in Form Tools) is a Read-Only field. So, you cannot really dynamically add/change the content of this field in the form. It is always a static field.

    An alternative option I can suggest that you can use in replacement for the TEXT field is the Narrative Widget
