    How can I use the entered information in my form to display additional info on my page?

    Asked by kauseway on March 18, 2015 at 11:44 AM

    If I want to create a second form and display data there. Is there a way to pull information from the jotform to be displayed in the second location.

     I have attached an example. You can see how information from the form on the left is displayed in a box on the right.  Whats the best method to do that?  Can it pull from the jotform if jotform is installed as an iframe? or does jotform need to be installed with source code?

    Hi kauseway,

    Unfortunately, we do not have the option to have the information entered on the form displayed as it is being filled out.

    We do however an a widget that allows your users to preview their selection before submitting their form.

    Preview Before Submit

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

    Thank you.

    Thanks  But I am wondering if I have someone help code that box on the right.  Can they pull information from the form into that box? If so how? Can that information be pulled over if the form is installed as an iframe or does it need to be installed as source code?

    You would need to use the full source code of the form in order to create a custom script that retrieves the information you need to display on the right side. You can use the onchange event in JavaScript to dynamically change the data as it's entered in the form.

    Should you require further assistance, please let us know.
    Thank you.
