    How to set a hidden field?

    Asked by trakwebster on February 23, 2016 at 05:58 AM

    I have jotform integrated with iContact, and successfully pass some standard fields and some custom fields to iContact.

    I wish to pass a hidden field to iContact. For example a text field that says "jotform." This field does not appear visible to the user when they're filling out jotform, but I can pass it to iContact, and therefore know that the source of the iContact record was the jotform.

    On hand-built forms, it's just "<input type="hidden" name="country" value="Norway">"

    How do I do this with jotform?

    I found the answer. Under widgets, there are other widgets that are not shown.

    Doing a search in the widgets section for "hidden," a hidden-field widget appears.

    So now, this brings up a new question --

    Where will I find a COMPLETE listing of all the widgets. (Can't search unless I know what i'm searching for.)

    I'd be grateful for your guidance, thanks.

    Our form widgets are here: http://widgets.jotform.com/.

    But you can add a standard field in the form and put some default value then hide it.
