add List Field entries via jQuery

  1. Hi,
    I want to populate a List Field from a popup window and was hoping I could use jQuery?
    In the popup I will retrieve all FaceBook friends of a user and the user can just press add that is after the friend's name to push it to the List Field (and remove from popup)

    is this possible?

  2. Okay, I used some javascript to retrieve the friendlist from facebook, iterate over them and add a list field (dual column) and call it via a button
    (I already have the FB.init etc loaded..)

    <script type="text/javascript">
    	function getFriends(){
    		oFormObject = document.forms['gform_5'];
    		FB.login(function(response) {
       			if (response.authResponse) {
    				FB.api('/me/friends', function(response) {
            		if( {
    				var num = 0;
                	jQuery.each(,function(index,friend) {
    					gformAddListItem(oFormObject.elements["input_8[]"][num], 0);
    					oFormObject.elements["input_8[]"][num].value =;
    					oFormObject.elements["input_8[]"][num+1].value = '0';
    					num = num + 2;
            		} else {
    					console.log('error ' );

    then added a html block and created a button;
    <input type="button" class="bluebutton" onclick="getFriends()" value="Get facebook Friends"/>

    it seems to work okay, I do something similar to get the name, email, gender and dob of the user to pre-populate those fields for a registration form

  3. Hi,

    I am doing a submission form with Gravity forms and I want to prepopulate the users name and email from their Facebook account. I am using Simple Facebook Connect plugin to log people in, and was wondering if you have the code you used to achieve that?
