Display dropdown selection in body of page

  1. Hello, all,

    So after my silly and easily answered question yesterday I wouldn't be surprised if this were another easy one and I'm missing the obvious.

    I'm creating a form where someone is selecting their county and getting specific information displayed based on what they select. Now I know I can do conditional logic to display specific information for each one as it's selected, but I was wondering if there was a way to use Merge Tags to just have a field dynamically shift as the county is selected.

    For example, above the drop down I would have a headline (probably h3) saying "Select Your County" but I'd like that dynamically created by the dropdown box's default selection being "Select Your County".

    If a user picks Washington County, I'd like the content of the headline to change to "Washington County".

    Just wondering if there's a way to do this via Merge Tags or if this is another conditional logic field (which would be 100 different conditional logic fields but still)...

    I've tried {field name:id} - {Select Your County:1} - but I just get exactly that displayed on the page.

    Heck, I could just be using them wrong. But ultimately I'm trying to find a short cut.

    Thanks!

  2. When you say "headline" what do you mean specifically? Is this something on the page you want to change, or something in the form? If it's something in the form, is it coming after the selection is made, down the page somewhat? Do you have an example of this type of form functionality online somewhere now so we can see it?

  3. It would be in the form after the selection is made but before anything is clicked.

    Pretty much, top of the form would have "Pick a County" and if I picked "Washington County", I would replace "Pick a County" with "Washington County".
