    Calculation widget not working

    Asked by aclctutoring on May 27, 2015 at 12:52 AM


    I'm in the process of making a registration form.

    Under the "course selection" tabs, more specifically, the dropdowns and radio buttons on those pages, currently have calculation values associated with them (since the registration costs varies with registration date).

    After completing the form, I noticed that no matter which radio buttons I selected, the calculations did not populate via the calculation widget.

    Thanks in advance for any help in solving this!

    I have checked and tested you form and noticed that calculation widget is not populated. Try to set your calculation widget like this.

    Also you need to add zero "0" as first Calculation value inside of your dropdown lists, because your first value is empty by default.

    I have cloned your form and made demo form http://form.jotformpro.com/form/51462186122954? 

    Feel free to clone it.

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