    Using the value entered in one field into the Radio button options

    Asked by aprpac on July 02, 2015 at 08:12 AM

    I would like to be able for a user to enter their name in a Text field and then make visible a Radio list that has their entered name within the options:


    Enter your name: Paul

    Select the message you would like:

    O  HANDS OFF! - Only for use by Chef Paul

    O  Paul the King of the Barbecue

    O  Paul you were born to BBQ!

    Can you help?

    Original thread title: Can I dynamically create a set of Radio buttons using User input within "boilerplate" text?

    Using the "Update Form Field Value" condition, you can use the value entered in 1 field to another. Please refer to this guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/286-How-to-Populate-Field-with-a-Value-from-another-Field.
    However, it is not possible to use the value entered in a text box field into the Radio button options.

    Please check this demo form that I've created: http://www.jotformpro.com/form/51824529500957

    I created 3 fields for message 1-3 so that once the user entered his name, the message 1-3 fields will be updated with a text together with the entered name. After that, I created a radio button so the user can choose what message he/she prefers.

    These are the conditions I've used:

    I would recommend you cloning the form if you want to know how I created the conditions and the structure. If you have any questions, let us know. Thank you.
