    Using JotForm API to display forms

    Asked by Mike  on September 21, 2015 at 10:26 AM

    Hi there,


     So I am looking to find a way hopefully using php to use JotForm's API to display forms and then modify some values.


     Here's an example of what I am looking to accomplish with this.




     I'd like to display that form for example using the API and then when data is posted it updates the availability widget for the form.


     I've found the API code to display things like forms, get properties and such, but I am having difficulty finding some reference code that allows me to display the form. Any thoughts or references?

    Hello Mike.

    I believe that this would be best answered by our colleagues who deal with JotForm API directly, as they would know best about abilities and limitations of our API.

    You can contact them either over api@jotform.com email address, or through our developer forum:


    I believe that this widget will automatically update its available slots after every submission, so you can also try with just regularly embedding your desired form or forms onto your website.

    If you need to display your form through our API, then it is really best to contact our colleagues who deal with the API. I hope this helps.
