    How Do I Pass Values from Fields to Text Elements?

    Asked by b.m.ezzat on September 19, 2015 at 02:37 AM


    At the end of my form i have a text with the following

    "Please select {input338} Nut butter packs as requested, Number of Nut Butter packs you selected equals {nutButter385}." 

    Where {input338} and {nutButter385} are the values of texts boxes inside the form

    {input338} is working as expected and shows the value needed

    However {netButter385} notworking and appears as it is



    Please note i used the same technique in that form and work normally as per below text where both are showing the correct values

    Please select {input288} meal packs as requested, Number of meals you selected equals {mainDish} .

    Our apologies for taking so long to address your question. I'm not sure why this happened. Anyway, I've examined your form and it appears that you've been able to resolve the issue on your own. Is this correct?

    For future reference on using field tags in Text elements, please see the answer provided by my colleague Ben in this thread. It should be noted that in order for the technique to work, the edit button shown in his screencast must be used and not the HTML button at the top of the form builder toolbar:
