    Prepopulate data into widgets using Conditions

    Asked by rmoulas on October 16, 2015 at 04:59 AM

    Hi,

    I'm currently using few widgets in my form (button radio, image checkboxes, check in check out):  http://www.stage-prochaine-escale.com/test-3/

    I would like to use the prepoulate feature to automatically select some of the widgets options.

    How can I do that? I can't see the widgets in the output of the conditional windows (Update / Calculate Field’s Value).

    Thx for your help.

    As of this time, most of the widgets are really not available yet as target Output To Field for conditional calculations.

     

    It is because the widgets are being loaded on a separate iframe within the form. This means it could not be seen by the condition script when in the Conditions wizard.

    For now, you can only use the regular fields (i.e Radio options, Checkboxes, or image)

    Hope this help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
