    Want to create a Custom Quote/Order Generator that gives an automated total

    Asked by handdrawnpressing on September 02, 2016 at 01:47 PM

    Hi -

    Please see example URL of a Custom Quote generator, which we would like to have the exact same capabilities. 

    Here is the one we have built, but it doesn't add any totals. We need to assign $ to each item in the various dropdown menus but have no clue how to do this...

    Help?

     

    Thanks! -HDR

    I have checked the website where the form you're trying to achieve is at and I believe it is possible for you to have that kind of form here in Jotform. 

    I checked your form and I see that you're trying to display the total in a Sliders with Calculated Result widget, correct? I'm afraid we cannot inject values to that widget from another field, however, we can get whatever total there is in that widget to another field. But, I would suggest you pass it to a Form Calculation widget. To perform a calculation in your form using that widget, I suggest you check this guide: How-to-Perform-Calculation-in-the-Form

    You can include all the other field in the Form Calculation widget and construct your computations. But you need to set Calculation Values for your drop-down fields first.

    Then, to avoid confusion, I also suggest you hide the "Result" in the Sliders with Calculated Result widget using the CSS codes below. 

    #result{

    display: none !important;

    }

    You need to inject the code in the Custom CSS tab of the widget.

    By doing that, the total will only be displayed in the Form Calculation widget.

    I hope this helps and we will be more than willing to assist you further in creating your form, but please help us understand how the computation works if you include all the other fields in your form.

    Thank you.
