    Asked by asccombaillaux on December 11, 2014 at 09:07 AM

    Hi,

    In ordder to limit the typing I would like to be able to provide jostform with the list of Towns and associated Zip code so that wehn someone pick a zip code, the liste of availbale cities in the next pick list is reduced to the only matching cities.

    Thanks for your help,

    Georges

    It seems to me that you want some sort of selection restriction feature to place a limit on the type of cities that would appear if a certain zipcode is used for a specified area.

    Zipcode XXX01 ---> Town A

    Zipcode XXX02 ---> Town B, Town C

     

    I think something that would work much better than that would be our Postal Code Search Widget which you may want to take a look at. It does the same exact thing and only shows the related city since each is unique anyhow.

    On behalf of my colleague, you're welcome.

    Regarding your question.
    Unfortunately, there's no option to set a default country in the widget.
    You need to select it from the dropdown each time.

    If you have further questions, please let us know.
    Best Regards.

    Hi Raul,

    Tooooo bad for the default country set-up, bu I guess I can deal without it.

    Now is there a french language for this widget, I tried all the tricks which were given by your team on another widget/api translation but it doesn't work as for some unknown reason I cannot reach the "translation option" menu.

    Regards,

    Georges

    I've opened up a feature improvement request for your idea about setting a default country. You can follow it up here although I can't make any guarantees about it.

    As for your secondary issue involving applying a language I have separated that to this new thread.
