    How can we separate value from label of radio button or checkbox?

    Asked by SAUN on April 01, 2015 at 10:34 AM


    I was wondering why can't we separate values  from labels in radio button or checkbox in the jotform editor ?

    I mean, we only can download the form and make change to have this fonctionality ? (and after we must upload our form somewhere)

    I added some checkbox. I wanted to link a value (like a price) to a label in order calculate the sum of all the checked options.


    For example in an event with lunch:



    Choice 1 :  label="On Friday" value="20" 

    Choice 2 :  label="On Saturday" value="40" 

    Choice 3 :  label="On Sunday" value="30" 


    Total = (sum of checked values)


    How can I do this ?

    It is possible to add values on check boxes. Inside of your Form Builder select Check box field then click on Preferences and inside of Preferences there is Calculation Values filed where you need to add values that will not be visible but that values will be applied during some calculation.

    If you want to calculate them, add Calculation Widget and add in Calculation Widget value of check box field.

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Oh! Thank you. The approximative auto-french translation of JotForm didn't help me, sorry.

    I was wondering why this feature couldn't be there. But indeed it is operational. 

    It works!
