    How to send the result from Sliders with calculated result widget to a text box?

    Asked by fadefml on June 17, 2016 at 12:47 PM

    I can not figure out how to put "total price" into a text box that says "total". I am trying to use the calculate sliders widget to calculate a price to then be sent into paypal express.


    Please help!

    I understand that you want to send the calculation result of the Sliders widget to a textbox so that it can be used for payment. Is that correct?

    You may set a condition as shown below to copy the calculated result of the Sliders widget to the textbox field.

    Then the Total field can be selected from the Payment field to pass the final total.

    I notice that there is a currency validation is selected for the Total textbox field which is not required. Please select None from the validation field.

    This is how it should work with the above changes on your JotForm. Please note that I have changed the calculation in the sliders widget on the cloned form for testing purposes.

    Hope this information helps! If you need any further assistance, please let us know. We will be happy to help.
