    How to create dynamic link on form?

    Asked by Schwob on September 05, 2016 at 09:18 AM

    injected the follwong code before my link in the source-code of my form:

    ...


    this is a link

    ...

    Thsi works so far, but changing the value in the input-box does not Change the URL, it only presents the first, prepopulated value für Input_9.

    I tried to make a function of the script, using onchange-Event in order to actualize the values, but then the whole form won´t work. Is there a specfic Position where i have to put my code, or any hint for me to get this work?

    Maybe someone else has already a solution to create dynamic links with variable values (without usage of submit).

    I'm sorry, but can you give us more details about what are you trying to achieve?

    Possibly the form ID so we can have a clear picture of the whole idea?

    We'll wait for your response.

    Thank you!

    Hi Nik!

    Sorry:

    https://form.jotformeu.com/62481739800358

    We have several Layout-Files, for each Book-Size one (Link to ZIP-File)

    We want to avoid the complicated Workaround with Conditions to supply our customer with the correct File (coressponding to the calculated Value for Bookthickness).

    The Plan is to create a Download-Link like this: http://schwob-digitaldruck.de/files/Layout_XXmm, where XX ist the value of the calculated block thickness. This would be much easier for implementing as using Conditions, because we have around 30 different sizes. (Later i Need a similar function also for replacing Images dynamically in a form, if this will work with scripting.)

    You can do that by using Form Calculations, for my tests I used this field: Buchblockdicke (mm), for that XX size,but this example will apply to any field.

    1. Place one form calculation field on your form and these are values in it:

    Yellow field is your Buchblockdicke (mm) field.

    2. And here is how it looks like on form:

    I'm thinking that this could be a workable solution for you since it will create different link for each size every time, as you needed, here is clone of your form so you can check:

    https://form.jotform.com/62484885137972

    You can make that field hidden or send to your clients.

    If you need further help please let us know.

    Thank you!
