    Drop down menu text into text paragraph

    Asked by homesurveygb on April 13, 2016 at 06:50 AM

    Hi all.

    I have a drop down menu with three items to select (RICS Conditon Survey, RICS HomeBuyer Survey, Building Survey). Each of these drop down items then has a monetary 'Value' of (£xxx, £xxx, £xxx) added to them for the calculation form which I have added.

    I would now like to add the Drop Down Menu 'Text' (NOT the value £xxx) of the one they have selected be it (RICS Conditon Survey, RICS HomeBuyer Survey, Building Survey), into a paragraph text on page 2 of the form so its reads.

    "Thankyou for selecting 'RICS HomeBuyer'. We confirm the following information was inputted by you ...".

    Am I able to do this?

    Yes, this is possible. You can use the free text html field to show the selections.

    Just grab the field name then add it in the HTML editor: https://www.jotform.com/help/146-How-to-find-Field-IDs-Names. Just like this:
