Populate form input text with Dropdown selection

  1. ultramel123

    Hi there.

    Great plugin first of all :)

    I have a form with different "drop-down" fields where the user chooses a "menu" for their conference. These are my dropdown values:

    Menu 1 | 90
    Menu 2 |120
    Menu 3 |150

    I would like to have a text field on my form, which displays the actual menu text for the relevant selection made in the dropdown.

    ie if the user selects "Menu 1 |90" - then the text field should populate with the text:
    "Menu1: Rice, Chicken, Vegetables & 1 salad"... (or something like that)

    is this possible?

    Thank you so much for a great plugin

  2. I am looking for this functionality too. With me the person selects a location and the display only field shows the name of the location.

    Great plugin! Looking for more guidance on how to implement code snippets, what file they should go into and where to find field names to refer to.

  3. You should be able to show/hide fields and content with conditional logic based on selection. It sounds like you might be able to use an HTML field to display the menu information and show that when the option is chosen.

  4. I think I know where you are going with this. Would you have an example on how to integrate fields in HTML though?

    Why would you need to integrate fields into the HTML field? You could add a HTML field that says "Home", and then using conditional logic show that HTML field when the user selects "Location 1" for example.

    Thank you for the replies.

    David / Rob:

    I have tried to use an HTML field to display certain menu text if the user selects "Menu 1". however the HTML field shows when the form is displayed, regardless which menu is selected?

    Also, there are 16 menu's which the user will choose from. Would I need to create an HTML field for each menu, and set the conditional logic for each menu choice?
