    Is it possible to fill a dropdown dynamically using javascript from json?

    Asked by kimg10 on January 17, 2015 at 06:04 PM

    I have a script which will allow me to pull data dynamically from a web-link API.  The link is:  https://www.vacationcrm.com/travelmvc/api/Service/GetAgents?apikey=XXXX-XXXX-XXXX (Obviously the XXXX-XXXX will be replaced with he API key itself).  Is it possible to use this code as the options for a dropdown in JotForm?  I can not seem to find any option within the settings of the dropdown field which will take incoming code, only things that will show source or outgoing code.

    I am trying to use this specifically for the dropdown labeled "Certified Travel Agent" in the "Travel Information Form - Updated".

    Hi kimg10,

    Unfortunately it is not possible to input a script within JotForm to create your dropdown menu options.

    This however can be done if you download the full source code of your form and input the script by editing the source code.


    I hope this helps, please inform us if you need further assistance.
