    Hi, not sure if this is something you are able to assist with, but I really really need to create fields with hidden values depending on users input, which are then able to be added together and displayed as a final price for a product.


    For example:

    Nos of Days    (User input)          Hidden field value  (If "User input" is less than 5 then Duration Value= £30  if "user input" is greater than 5 and less than 11 then Duration Value = £45, If "user Input" is greater than 11 but less than 21 then Duration Value= £60


    Include Ski cover  (Ski User Input)       Hidden Field (If Ski User Input = No then Ski Value=£0.00  If Ski User Input = YES then Ski Value = Duration Value * 2


    Hopefully this crude example demonstrates what I am trying to achieve.


    Thanks in advance

    Hello Steve.  Unfortunately this functionality you're looking for is not available within JotForm.  Let me pass this to the development team if they can come up with something.

    I think the best solution for this would be to create the form without this functionality and copy and paste the full form source code to your web site. Then get a JavaScript developer to custom develop this calculation. You should have a "donation" field on the form so that the javascript developer can put the total to this value. 

    Here is how you can get the full source code. Open your form on the Form Builder:

    1. Open "Setup & Embed" tab on toolbar,

    2. Click on "Embed Form"

    3. Click on "Source" and copy the HTML code provided to your web site..
