    I have to type a value in a textbox and display the value in a text area {my_value} 

    but it doesn't work. It only display {my_value} and not what I type.

     

    Thanks for your help!

    To do that, you should first add the field that you will capture the value in and then add its field tag to the Text field.

    If you do otherwise it might not work.

    Do of course let us know if you have any further questions or if you need any assistance and we would be happy to assist.

    *** no need to open a new ticket for this post. 
    just wanted to share my appreciation.

    i didn't know that it's possible to use the Text field to pass variables. 
    i've always used text boxes or the form calculation to pass variables where the outputs are constrained within a boxed field.

    thanks for sharing this info, Ben !
