Dynamic Items in Form Select Field


#1

Hey,

I am currently facing the the following problem:

  • I have 2 collections (collection a, collection b). Collection B consists of a name and a mail address.
  • Collection A has a direct reference to collection B.
  • On the collection A page template I want to include an option to select one of the collection B items (don't mind if it is via selector, radio box, ..).
  • The form data should include the selected data (name, mail address) from collection B.

As far as I understand that is not possible with the standard options, right?

Any idea if and how this might work using JS?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Michael

Hey @michael
This might be done in html code, can you please share a preview link?

You have any idea how this might be done?

Cheers,

Hi Michael,

Yes it can be done with the radio buttons

  1. Add a dynamic List under Select expert and link it to the contacts collection.

  2. Delete all but one of the radio button fields you've already made. Drag and drop the one remaining into the dynamic list above.

  3. Link the Field label to the contact name. (get text from contacts and choose name)

  4. Add an Html embed right below the radio button field (inside the dynamic item) and add the following code, replacing the NAME & EMAIL with dynamic fields:

  <script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript">
    <!--
    document.write('<input ');
    document.write('   type="hidden" ');
    document.write('   name="Expert" ');
    document.write('   value="NAME">');
    //-->
    <!--
    document.write('<input ');
    document.write('   type="hidden" ');
    document.write('   name="Expert-email" ');
    document.write('   value="EMAIL">');
    //-->
    </script>

Like this:

Now publish the page, try sending a form and tell me if it works :slight_smile:

Good Luck,
Anna
