single line text insert address variable

    I created a custom taxonomy called Location (nonhierarchical). The Gravity Forms + Custom Post type plugin lets set a single line text field where any user inputs would add to that taxonomy.

    What I want to do is have the text field hidden and pass the City value from an address field into the single line text field.

    I tried setting the default value to the {Address (City):1.3} variable but the field came back empty.

    Can this be done another way?

  2. Hi, gchinola,

    If you just want to update the hidden field on your form with the value of another field, you can use the hook "gform_pre_submission". The documentation for this hook can be found at http://www.gravityhelp.com/documentation/page/Gform_pre_submission .

    I added this to my functions.php and it's still coming back blank:

    add_action("gform_pre_submission_3", "pre_submission_handler");
    function pre_submission_handler($form){
        $_POST["input_18"] = $_POST["input_1.3"];
    }

    where field 18 is the hidden text field and 1.3 is the city part of the address field.

    Edit:
    I went over some other related posts. I should have had "input_1_3". It's working now. Thank you for the help.
