Dynamic Answers & Calculations (Dynamic Values)
Often you may need to display some text or calculate a value in a dynamic fashion.
For example, you may want to show different text in a field based on what the user has previously answered.
Or maybe you have a product order Form that should calculate the total amount to pay.
This is where the Dynamic Value property found on most form fields comes in handy.
Dynamic Value allows you to create a formula that generates or calculates a result that is assigned as the given field’s answer.
So for example, imagine you have the following Form fields:
- “Enter Product Name” – a Text field with Data Name of productName
- “Enter Product Cost” – a Number field with Data Name of productCost
- “Enter Number of Items” – a Number field with Data Name of numberItems
Its found near the bottom of the properties list, in the Advanced section.
This will make the field readonly, so the user cannot change the displayed answer text.
