Generate random number based on fields

  1. chingy


    At the moment I have the following fields (where the brackets are the values):

    • Product Name
    • Category dropdown
      • Canada(CAN) | United Kingdom(UK)| United States(USA)
    • Size dropdown
      • Small(S) | Medium(M) | Large(L)
    • Colour dropdown
      • Red(RD) | Blue(BL) | Green(GR)

    I'd like to use GF to generate serial numbers of some products, based on what is input in the form.

    So for example a Blue T-Shirt in Large made in Canada may generate the following serial code (where the last 8 alphanumeric values are completely random)


    I have read and followed which is great for generating random values - but is it possible and could someone help please - to generate the random string WITH the values based on the selection?

    Also, I need the random code to be unique (even in the case where as like above, I may enter another Blue T-Shirt in Large made in Canada).

    Really appreicate any help

    This is really a customization with a fair number of moving pieces.

    With the tutorial that you linked to, and some understanding of PHP, you should be able to extend it into what you need.

    If you are unable to, your best bet would be to post on our Job Board, or look at hiring a developer form or a freelancer site like
