    Hi, we have a form that generates a serial number, we are wanting that generated serial number to appear in a text area of your form. Are we able to do this? I can get the serial number to appear but will not come via the email response.

    I checked the form on your webpage and it appears that you were able to successfully display the generated serial number into the text area of the form. However, upon checking the code, it appears that the text-area was not created from jotform, which is why it is not being displayed in the email response.

    A possible workaround would be to add another text area to your jotform. so you can pass the code from the code field seen above into a text area created in jotform. Then you can identify the id of the new text area and input the javascript below so you can fill it with a value using the javascript below

    var serialCode = document.getElementById("code").value;

    document.getElementById("mytextarea").value = serialCode";

    Please note that you can only add javascript to the form if you are using the full source code of your form. If you are using the full source, you will also need to re-embed the form everytime you make changes to it.

    If you need further assistance, please let us know.
