    How to pass values from a form to another form embedded on a webpage.

    Asked by labman3 on July 16, 2015 at 05:17 PM

    I created 3 forms and uploaded to my website. each form has its own page within my website. The process would be to start on the first form and work your way to the 3rd.

    When I tested my forms thru my website, every time I press continue at the bottom of each form, It displays the next form in the process as it should, but, it's displayed by itself and not on the webpage. Does this make sense?

    I would like the forms to displayed within the website.

     

    Hope someone can help?

     

    Thank you

    Bill

    Yes it does make sense, because you are redirecting the parameters  to the direct link of the other form, so this one populates with the data:

    What you are trying to accomplish requires more PHP custom coding, so we do recommend you to hire a programmer to create the proper PHP script that will pass the data to another embedded form. 

    I believe you will need to embed the full source code of the form to accomplish this, so here is how to download it: https://www.jotform.com/help/104-How-to-get-the-Full-Source-Code-of-your-Form

    If you need anything else, pleas open a new thread, we will be glad to assist you.

    Thank you for your response.

    I'm a little confused. Do I need to hire a programmer or do I insert the full source code to accomplish the same thing?

     

    When I use the following code in my website, I just get a frame with nothing in it.

     

    When I use the following code, it displays the form.

    "every time I press continue at the bottom of each form, It displays the next form in the process as it should, but, it's displayed by itself and not on the webpage"

    What I meant is that in order to pass the values from one of the embedded forms to another embedded form, it is needed to do a custom coding by you or a programmer that you might hire, since you do not want displaying the next form by itself, you want it to display on the webpage.

    I believe the programmer might need to work with the full source code of the form to accomplish that, that's why I shared with you how to get it.
