    Create a field that follow the users as they scroll through the JotForm

    Asked by inklingcg on September 15, 2014 at 12:20 PM

    I need a total box that updates the amount of products/cost of each product that moves along the page with them.  Is that possible?

    Yes that is possible. I took a look at your form, but I do not see any fields with prices in them, but using conditions it will be possible to set the floating field to float around the form.

    This is the form where I added the field that would follow you as you go , so you can take a look at it:


    As you can see it, both the label and the field will follow you around. Do note that it is currently set to go all the way to the right, but once you embed the form into your page, it will go to the far right of the iframe window (not all the way to the right).

    Do ask if you need any help along the way with this.

    Calculations of total can be made by few simple (or complex) calculations and we have a wide set of easy to follow tutorials about that right here http://www.jotform.com/help/chapter-9-Form+Calculations

    If you get stuck or if you are not sure about any of them, we are here to help you :)

    Best Regards,

    Hey Ben

    I'm trying to do this same thing. I see your form, and that is what I am after....but how do I set a particular field to 'float' the way your "total" field does.

    Hello James,

    It is possible to achieve your requirement by injecting custom css code in form. I have moved your question to a new thread and you will be answered here:  http://www.jotform.com/answers/515339
