    How to create an invoice output based on user-selections ?

    Asked by grade4pagasa on August 01, 2016 at 10:42 AM

    hi.

    is there an easier way that i could create an invoice based on user-selections (like a physical invoice from a cash register)? 

    in the attached form-link, i used 3 separate HTML textfields as placeholders for the 3 products and their prices

    what i really wanted to happen was pipe all the user-selection, together with the corresponding prices and calculated subtotal and total inside an HTML textfield in table layout. and the sequencing of the entries will be based on the user's selection (unlike mine where it's arranged from gold, silver and bronze).

    when you clone my form, you will see at the very bottom that there's an HTML textfield - but this approach of mine is not desirable since the text string will display ALL products - even for items that weren't selected (prices @ $0 are even displayed). 

    i found a widget-demo that somewhat shows the end-result i'm looking for - the visual multi-select demo. the items selected by the user are arranged in the correct order the user chose them in the exclude panel. 

    hoping you could help me on this.

    Hello grade4pagasa,

    If I understand your question correctly, you want to create an invoice and display it in thank you message or submission email. Is that correct?

    Though there is no built in feature to achieve this but with a little workaround, it is possible to achieve your requirement by talking advantage of "Conditions" feature. Let me do further tests and create a sample form for you. I will get back to you in a while.

    Thank you!

    Were you able to figure out how to pipe all the user-selection, together with the corresponding prices and calculated subtotal and total inside an HTML textfield in table layout, Ashwin?

    I will send a reminder to my colleague to see if there is any progress on this workaround. Please note that when we offer to try to find a workaround, we usually work it out in our free time. 

    You will be updated via this thread if there is any updates on this matter.

    Please cancel this query. I already found an external solution.
