    Configurable list widget: Is there a way to get the count of rows added to the widget?

    Asked by CscProvidence on June 13, 2016 at 01:21 PM

    I am trying to use the "Configurable List Widget" to register multiple individuals on a single form, collecting such info as first and last names along with elements specific to each individual.  

    HOWEVER : the payment portion of the form needs to know how many individuals are named in the list to be able to get the respective discount and calculate the total due.

    Is this possible or is there an other approach which should be used for such forms?  Not forgetting there are several fields/elements per individual.

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to get the count of the rows added to the configurable list widget at the moment. If you need the number to be calculated for payment, it is required to calculate the total by using a separate field on the form to collect the number of individuals registered manually.

    Let me forward the thread to our backend team as a feature request to see if we can get the number of rows added from the configurable list. I cannot guarantee that the feature will be implemented or cannot provide you an ETA if accepted for implementation at the moment. However, if there is an update in this regard, you'll be posted here on this thread.

    For now I sort of simulated the Configurable list with conditions, etc.  The series of fields for each individual is duplicated, renamed and an additional field acts as the "+" (and sort of "-") as found through the forum.

    This is not as 'nice' as the configurable list BUT it does allow for any field and, with much work, a table format controlled through custom CSS ...

    There must be some sort of count some where as it must check against the mininum / maximum allowed number of rows - custom numbers set when configuring a configurable list. It would be to make it a field ({...-count} ?) seen by calculated fields as an integer.  Might as well make the min and max also accessible to calculated fileds  ({...-min} and {...-max} ?) to allow some calculation based on those three numbers.

    Thank you for the inputs. I have forwarded the thread to our backend team to consider the implementation to get the row count of the configurable list widget. If there is any progress in this regard, we'll definitely post it here for you.

    Thank you!
