    Create Pop Up from Text Link

    Asked by brooke833 on November 02, 2015 at 12:29 PM

    Hi, I would like to create a link in my form that creates a pop-up window for details about each ski package I offer so the user can click on the details link and get a description without having to leave the form.


    This is my form in progress https://form.jotform.com/53005324759959, it is in the second page - Equipment Packages you will see I list several packages with a Details link next to them, I would like that details link to open a pop up window of some sort to show a description of that package and possibly a photo.  Is this possible?  If so, is it mobile friendly?  Any suggestions you have would be greatly appreciated.


    Thank you!

    Hi Brooke,

    Unfortunately, our Free Text HTML field is limited to some formattings and the popup is not possible there. In your current settings, the only way you can do that would be to hyperlink the texts and let it open in a new tab.

    I've cloned your form and made this as a sample, check it here: https://form.jotform.com/53055697232963


    If you want, a workaround can be made using the form source codes and manually adding some scripts in the source that would do the popup. But note that this method will require you to finish the form first and next would be to embed the source to your website since there's no way you can import it back in the form builder. Also, your changes in the form builder after the form is embedded won't be automatically added. If you want to try this method, let us know so we can create a sample.
