Limit entries with count in field

  1. I used that build-in functionality to limit the number of entries allowed for my event and it works fine. Now I would like to add field "[ ] I have avec with me" -field the add two visitors to limit count at once. (I can also use select with counts if it's easier.)

    Is there any easy way to do this kind of calculation to get right count?

    Gravity Forms does its entry limit by submitted entries, and you can't create two entries from one submission and Gravity Forms doesn't have an inventory system. A heavily customized version of the following might help:

  3. Thanks. I made quick and dirty solution by combining couple of examples

    function count_with_avecs($form){
      $count = 0;
      $leads = RGFormsModel::get_leads($form["id"]);
      foreach($leads as $id => $lead) {
    	if( $lead['8.1'] == "KYLLÄ" ) $count++;
      if( $count >= $form['limitEntriesCount'] ) {
    	  $limit_message = $form['limitEntriesMessage'];
          add_filter('gform_get_form_filter', create_function('', "return '<p class=\"limitmessage\">$limit_message</p>';") );
      return $form;
    add_filter("gform_pre_render", "count_with_avecs");

    TODO: fix if( $lead['8.1'] == "KYLLÄ" ) to search right field automaticly (This KYLLÄ means Yes and it's the value. It can be easily changed to field to have different count in it...)

    Sakari, did this end up working out for you? I'm trying to do something similar and it looks like your code may be a good starting point. My only question is that it seems like your code above would put a limit on ALL forms. Is the case or does 8.1 only refer to a specific field that is unique across all forms?
