dynamically populating a form, silly question?

  1. I'm a bit confused about the whole dynamically populating of a form.

    I have several events and want to use the title of the event to be the dynamic parameter for when people make a reservation for these events.

    I understand what code I need to add to my functions.php file, but what I don't understand is how I get people from the event page to the reservations page that has the form with the field that then hopefully will become populated dynamically.

    Silly question?

  2. Do you have any of these forms online now where we can see what you're doing?

    Basically, you will mark the field in your form "Allow field to be populated dynamically" and then give it a parameter name (eventtitle?)

    Then, in the link to the form page, on your events page, you will add this to the end of the link:

    http://example.com/my-form-is-here/?eventtitle=Super Awesome Event Tomorrow

    And that will populate the field in your form with the event title "Super Awesome Event Tomorrow".

  3. Hi Chris,
    Thanks for your reply.
    Well that was exactly what I needed! So it's just adding the title (in my case) to the end of the URL that I use for people to click on.
    Cannot show you anything yet as it is all local, but I understand it loud and clear now :)
    Thanks again for your fast response!
    Piet
