Order form calculations – single item from checklist

    Asked on September 16, 2015 at 11:29 AM

    Hello! I am attempting to create an order form where the user selects a single items from a checkbox or radio button list, adds a quantity (in another field) and the form calculates the cost.

    For instance, I have a list of my "widgets". A is $10, B is $6 and C is $3. The customer checks "A", and then puts "4" in the quantity field. The form then tabulates and displays "$40". This is not for payment, just informational as the user orders.

    I should add I want the user to ONLY be able to select ONE item from the list.

    Yes, that should be doable. For getting the total, use our calculation widget. Here's our guide for that: http://www.jotform.com/help/259-How-to-perform-calculation-in-the-form.

    For single selection, you should use our Radio Button field instead of the checkbox field. Radio Button is for single selection while checkbox is for multi-selection.
