Merge Tag Calculations with Default Value

  1. This is a pretty straightforward question, I am just not sure if it is possible with the GF merge tags.. in essence it is an if statement, which I know GF doesn't do but maybe it is still possible.

    Essentially I want to do a price calculation, based on a checkbox product price field for the default value, soo basically:

    calculation = {field default} - {field value}

    So if I have a checkbox field for +$20 the calculation would be $20 - $20 if checked, $20 - 0 if not checked...

  2. Can you provide a link to your form where this is being used? I am having a hard time envisioning it. Thank you.

  3. --click the 'reserve' button

    To explain better, the form is being used with WooCommerce and the grav forms addon for that. After checkout the information from the form is used to create a cpt for a calendar and reserve a time on the calendar. The form has a checkbox to select deposit or full payment. What I am looking to do is include a metabox for the cpt for "Amount due" so that if deposit is checked, it does a calculation for full cost - deposit cost = amount due. To do that I was hoping to simply use the deposit cost field; for example, if the deposit is $50 by default, then you could do $50 - the value (so the value would be $50 if it is checked, or $0 if it is not check). Does that help at all?
