Dynamic population of a fields in the form

    I have searched the forum and can only find out how to dynamically populate fields on different forms.

    So if I have a name text field at the top of my form and I want it to dynamically populate another text field further down on the same form, how do I do that?

    Then I have a dropdown that when the person selects it, I want to be able to dynamically populate another text field on the same form as well.

    Thanks!

  2. You have 2 options.

    If the fields you want to dynamically populate are visible to the user then you would have to do this with custom jQuery. There is no documentation for this because the hooks are PHP hooks and this would have to be done with standard jQuery.

    If the fields you want to dynamically populate are hidden fields then you would populate them dynamically when the form is submitted using the gform_pre_submission hook or the gform_after_submission hook depending on what you are trying to accomplish. Both these hooks are documented in the Developer Docs section of the Documentation.

    Either way these are customizations and require custom code to accomplish.

  4. This isn't a feature Gravity Forms does by default. If you want to populate the value of a text field with the value of a select box selection when a user selects a value in that drop down then you would have to implement it using custom jQuery. There isn't a built in feature that handles this for you.
