Using a Shortcode in Field Description

  1. Are there any hooks we can use to manipulate field descriptions? I am trying to put together a form that needs to use a shortcode inside of the field descriptions. Basically, I'm trying to embed media (using the [embed][/embed] shortcode) inside of descriptions for a quiz-form I'm working on, but when I load the form, the code itself just shows up rather than actually parsing the shortcode.

    I understand that this feature isn't built into Gravity Forms out-of-the-box, but if there is a hook/filter I can grab onto in order to run the field description through do_shortcode() or to apply the standard content filters ( apply_filters('the_content',$description) ), that would be awesome. Thanks.

    If you still require assistance with this please open a new support ticket or a priority support ticket if you are a developer license holder. Thank you.
