    I am trying to complete my form with a calculation and masked input

    Asked by dbotes on October 24, 2016 at 12:39 PM



    I have this simple form that doesn't seem to be working. I'm sure I've got the correct calculation right, and I have used a masked input. I can't get it to work. In need the 'Price box to auto populate when entries are put into the top 2 boxes. 

    Please help. 

    Thank you

    Masked input widget won't work for this calculation. You have to use a textbox or the calculation widget to get the result. I know you are trying to get the result with the currency, the decimal and thousand separator, but it's not possible so you have to change it. In the calculation, you can the currency sign.

    I've cloned your form and made these changes, check it here: https://form.jotform.com/62976426832971

    You can clone my form back for you to see how I get it to work: https://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL

    By the way, in the calculation widget, you have to click the "...." or the more options. Go the Options tab and check your preferred output such as to show the decimal value:
