Variables in HTML Blocks

  1. Is there any way to include dynamic content in an HTML block? I'm passing variables to my form, and although I can use them to pre-populate fields, I would like a way to display them in an HTML block. Using javascript doesn't seem to work.... I've tried:

    The value of this variable is
    <script type="text/javascript">

    Is there another method? In a nutshell, I just need to DISPLAY some data to the user. I don't want it in a form field, because I don't want them to be able to change the value. Any suggestions?

    Try using this hook and just return true;

    I am not sure that will let you do JS inside it though. You could put a div or whatever in there with a class and then put JS in your header.php file to manage the content of that div. (I'm not JS expert though)

  3. @Capstone did you ever find a way to include dynamic content in an HTML block?

    I'm trying to do the same thing, but not seeing a way to do it... been searching the GF forums for an answer to this, but have not found any answer yet. :-)

  4. I was able to do this by creating a shortcode that retrieves the input values that I want to display in the HTML block. In this case I'm display only "product" values (i.e. for products that are set up using pricing fields - i.e. via PayPal / PayPal Pro add-ons).

    Here is the link to the code on PasteBin -
