Dynamically add time form is loaded + 30 mins

  1. gvnet


    I am hoping I can dynamically add a value to the time field (it is a pickup time for an order). When the form loads, I would like the time to be populated with the current time plus 30 mins.

    Is this possible?

    Also, can I generate an error if the time entered is less than current time + 30 mins?

    Many thanks.

  2. Yes. You could use the gform_pre_render filter to change the value of a field before it's displayed.

    You could also use the gform_validation filter to check to be sure that the value actually submitted is greater than 30 minutes from the current time.

    Please provide a link to your form if you still need help with this.

    This looks useful but a little out of my depth of php.

    Do you have any examples/docs specifically relating to time and date fields that I might be able to tweak?

    Many thanks

    We don't have any specific examples that would meet your needs at this time. Your best bet, if it is beyond your level of PHP knowledge is to hire a developer that could make this customization for you. We have a great Job Board on these forums, and I highly recommend as well. All my best!
