    Use value from the other fields on Fancy Range Slider Widget

    Asked by paul_x on October 27, 2015 at 08:01 PM

    Hi. Is there a way to put a stacked bar chart inside the form itself and the values sourced from text boxes?

    I couldn't find a bar chart in the widget gallery, so I tried the Fancy Range Slider as an example.

    Maybe the fancy slider can use text box {field name} values as sources of data?

    Hello paul_x,

    If I understand your question correctly, you want to read your form's text box value and pass it on to the "Fancy Range Slidr" widget. Is that correct?

    Unfortunately it is currently not possible to achieve your requirement. Do get back to us if you would like us to send a feature request to our backend team and we will do the needful.

    You may also like to check our "Math Graphs" widget and see if it fits into your requirement but it will also not read the value form other textboxes.

    Thank you!

    Hi @Ashwin

    I just used the fancy range slider as an example since I wasn't able to find a bar chart that I could use inside the form. 

    On this note, I would like to make a Feature Request to: 

    * create a stacked bar chart that can accept {field name} as values (from a textbox or calculation field) instead of just manual entry &

    * maximize the usefulness of the Fancy Range Slider by allowing the settings inside the wizard to accept {field names} (from a textbox or calculation field).

    Thanks Paul.

    I think that's a little complex, but I believe that's possible. Anyway, I have now raised this as a feature request. Unfortunately, we do not provide ETA on any feature request since we consider the number of users requesting a similar feature or those that are requested a lot. This will most likely not to be expected soon but rest assured, once we have any updates about this request, you will be informed via this thread.

    For now, you may consider using your form source code http://www.jotform.com/help/104-How-to-Download-a-Source-Code-of-your-Form so you can implement the features you want. You can also hire developers to work on it.

    Thank you!
