    How do I make the Total refresh when I choose an option through the URL with [?name=value]

    Asked by billallen65 on February 27, 2012 at 04:00 PM

    So, I can make the URL so that the check box on my paypal form is chosen, but the source shows Total at $75.

    So, http://form.jotform.us/form/20568252370148?southernRegional=1001 gets the checkbox checked so the user won't forget, but the total still shows $0.

    How do I make the form refresh and show a $75 total when I force the checkbox using the URL extension?

    The script that calculates total price of products selected only triggers upon user initiated action - i.e., ticking a checkbox on/off.

    I will try to ask our developers if this can be changed so that prices are updated upon loading. We cannot guarantee anything, but will let you know what our developers will say about this.

    Works GREAT!  Thanks!  Easy to make the URL or embed html set check the box and update the total for the default view!
