Populating Dynamic Content

  1. I have a multi page gravity form,

    lets say I have drop down field with Option 1, Option 2 and Option 3 on page 1

    Now on page 2 there is a text area field.

    When I select
    option 1, i want the text area to be populated with the text "Text 1"
    option 2, i want the text area to be populated with the text "Text 2"
    option 3 i want the text area to be populated with the text "Text 3"

    How can I do this?

    I just read about this filter today and it sounds like it could help you.

  3. I am looking in to more like a code snippet that can help me here. I am a novice at PHP, but once I get a piece of code, I can catch on from there...

    I understand I'm in the same learning php shoes. But that link gave me a snippet to work from.

  5. On page two, you could have three different text areas with different default text, and use conditional logic to choose which one to display, based on the drop down selection that was made. Would that work?

  6. Hi Chris,

    I already thought of that. I would prefer a solution to hook it in to the same field name as I plan to pass parameters on submit to a form parsing script for another platform

  7. There is no Gravity Forms hook to accomplish that in the same form. To take one piece of entered data and copy it to another form field, you can use jQuery. Something like this http://stackoverflow.com/a/4878348
