    How to find the city based on the postal code?

    Asked by JohanDefreyne on November 18, 2016 at 03:19 AM



    i understand how to populate all postal codes from Belgium in a dropdown box

    i would like to know if it is possible to fill a zone called location based on the value chosen in postal code


    for example in the dropdown box i have chosen the postal code = 1770 so i would like to fill

    automatically the zone location with "liedekerke"


    is this possible if you know there are about 5000 postal codes with each a different location

    We have a widget called Postal Code Search that you can use to automatically set the city based on the Postal code that your user entered. They simply need to select the country Belgium and input their postal code, and the widget will automatically display the appropriate location.

    Here's the link to the widget: http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/postal_code_search. To add the widget to the form, you can follow this guide: How to Add a Widget to your Form?

    You can also check out this demo to see the widget in action: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/51332839595969?
