Info Only displaying on form output

  1. Hi,

    What is the method of having informational only fields displaying on form output. For example, lets say your product only comes in one color so the user doesn't need to make a selection, but you would like that product color information to be part of the form detail output?

    Thanks,
    Todd

  2. You could make that field a hidden field or perhaps set the visibility to admin only.

  3. I don't think I was clear enough. i want the information to display on the form so the user sees it like all the other options they are choosing as well as show up on the form output so the user is able to see all the details for the product including the options they chose.

    Example:

    Product Size: (drop down with Large, Medium, Small)
    Product Color: Black (read only since no other choices)
    Product Style: (drop down with Style-X, Style-Y, Style-Z)

    Form Output -
    Product Size: Medium
    Product Color: Black
    Product Style: Style-Y

    If I make the Product Color an HTML field, it does not show up in the output. I guess I could make the field a drop down with only one choice, but that is somewhat silly.

  4. If you want it as part of the form output, especially in notifications or via merge tags, it will have to be a field of some kind. Silly or not, a drop down with no choice would work, unless you just include the color as part of the product name or style.
