    Is it possible - Piping Question

    Asked by MaidCrew on March 28, 2016 at 07:39 PM

    Hello again,

    Is it possible to pipe a calculated value into a subsequent multiple choice question .

    Simple Example:

    $80 is the calculated value to field A {fieldA}

    $100 is the calculated value of field B {fieldB}

    Can I then create a Radio Button Question like

    Q: Please choose the pricing option which best suits your needs:

         I'll take the {fieldA} pricing option

         I'll take the {fieldB) pricing option

    Thanks

    Shawn

    Unfortunately, it is not possible in the form builder. The options in the radio buttons should be manually hard coded. You can simply pass the calculated value to another text box, but not on a radio button, drop down field or check box. 

    This should be possible if you'll inject a custom script in your form's full source code. Here's a simple page where I used a simple script to pipe the value from one text box to a radio button field: https://shots.jotform.com/charlie/pipe_to_radio.html 

    Let us know if using the full source code is an option to you and we'll help you on creating the custom script.
