    Customizing the filepicker widget

    Asked by Magnetree on January 19, 2016 at 12:38 PM


    I would like to know if I can add additional customization to the filepicker widget that we're using on our form. More specifically we would like to: 

    Change the text of the "convert" button to "crop/edit"

    Add the CropForce function so that when users upload images they are forced to crop them right away

    Show a preview of the image after it has been uploaded/cropped

    I spoke with the people at Filestack (aka filepicker) and they said that if we're using the widget on Jotform, you would have full control over that.

    This customization cannot be added manually unfortunately.  It would require an update to the widget.  Though this functionality is available from Filestack, it is not yet available in our widget.  I cannot say if or when this functionality will be added, however, we will let you know via this thread if there are any updates.

    I would love to see this as well as a rotate function for filepicker's crop tool so that people could crop landscape or portrait photos within one of the aspect ratios you have set.
