    How do I pass data from a pop up window photo gallery to a form field?

    Asked by sportsaddix on January 19, 2012 at 05:43 PM

    I am looking to create a form that will contain a link that when clicked on will open up a photo gallery that the user can pick and the value of that spefic picutre will pass to the form. I do not have a ton of knowledge on coding so any information on how to get started on this will be helpful.


    Here is a link to a thread where the topic is talked about...

    Do you have your photo gallery ready? In that particular thread you're referring to, the JotForm member has her photo gallery ready for coding. Basically, I just helped her link that gallery to her form using some JavaScript codes.

    If you can give us the URL of the form you're working at and the photo gallery to which this form will be linked, we might be able to lend some assistance.

    Thanks for the speedy reply. I do have some images in a Picasa Photo Album but I was wondering if you had any suggestions on a photo gallery to use? I have done some research on this and will continue to. 

    As far as the form...I am in the beginning stages and will get a base to you soon. 

    Thanks again,
