    Conditions Wizard - Update a form field value - Hidden Fields no showing

    Asked by zultys on December 19, 2014 at 09:04 PM

    When I attempt to "add field"  after providing arguments from pull down dialog, I do not see hidden fields in this list. I do not have "ignore hidden fields" checked. My hidden fields have the values I want to output to a given field.

    Unfortunately, you cannot use Hidden Box widget in the Calculation. Use Textbox field instead with a default value. You can hide the individual text boxes:

    Thank you!

    I did this and some of my hidden boxes don't calculate into the Total box.  If I unhide them, they calculate.  How can I fix this?

    Can you try to use calculation widget widget instead of Text Box for the hidden field and see if it will help?
