    Create a BMI form that will show a message when the result is too high

    Asked by Helen  on November 12, 2014 at 04:07 AM

    Hi There

    Hi Helen,

    You can find BMI forms to our Form Template Gallery: https://www.jotform.com/form-templates/category/calculation-form.

    Now, for showing a message based on the specific result, you can use our Free Text HTML field and add a Conditional Logic (show/hide condition) to it. 

    For example: http://www.jotformpro.com/form/43152684229962. If the BMI is greater than 30, a message will be shown below:

    The conditional logic is simply like this:

    Using "Greater Than" rule. 

    Let us know if you need any further assistance implementing this to your form.

    Thank you!
