Order ID that raises with every order ( hidden field )

    Hi,

    I have only one small question. I am using Gravity Forms to place and Order Form for Vauchers on my Website. Everything is fine and works since months perfect.

    The only think I am missing is a hidden field with an order number ( f.e. VAUCHER0001 ) which raises everytime somebody sends this form. This hidden field should be like an ID for every form, so that every customer can place this number on his bank transfer paper and I get it also. It would be much easier for me to differ the people who have to pay and the people which had already payed.

    I have no idea how to create such a field with an variable that raises everytime somebody sends this form.

    Maybe somebody of you could help me out?

    thx in advance

  2. I am after something similar, though not as a hidden field

    I did write another post, but think the two things are close enough to have the same answer

  5. You would have to pre-populate a hidden field yourself, or use the entry id which you could also use as the order number. But if you want something unique you would have to use some PHP and pre-populate a hidden field using code. Lee Hord's example above is a good one.
