    Asked on November 06, 2015 at 08:36 PM

    Is there a way to set a drop down box with different prices for different items, and then it will calculate the total owed?  


    For example.


    Option 1:  Morning Session (8:30am – 12:00pm)-------------------------------------------$75 for 3 days

    Option 2:  Evening Session (1:00pm – 4:30pm)----------------------------------------------$75 for 3 days

    Option 3:  All day (with no lunch) -------------------------------------------------------------$120 for 3 days

    Option 4:  All day (includes lunch = pizza / snack / and 20 oz Gatorade or soda) -----$135 for 3 days


    Option 5:  Daily drop in for either session----(add $5 for lunch, as applicable)------------$40 each day

    Yes, this is very much possible, as our friendly user Randy kindly demonstrated in his demo forms. For both of the layouts Randy has used, radio layout and dropdown layout, you must first start off by assigning calculation values to each of the product items:

    How to Assign Calculation Value

    When assigning calculation values to a drop down field, please do note that the first calculation entry should be set to zero (0), because the first calculation value equals to when nothing is selected in a drop down:

    You can then perform calculations based on selected items in your drop down field:

    Finally, in case that you also want to forward this calculated value to a payment processor tool in order to receive the payment, you can do that by following this guide:

    Here is our guide on how to assign calculation values:


    Click on the drop down, then click on the little gear in the top right of the field.  That will bring up the options for that specific field. 

    From there, you can assign calculation values for your options.
