nintex form copying field

Hello,

I have field A in my form  that the user is filling out and I want filed B to populate with the same information so that the user does not need to populate but can update if need be.

Can this be done in nintex forms?

Hey,

actually I'm not sure what you want to achieve, but you can use a calculated value control to show the information of another field by inserting a reference to the desired field. You can also connect that calculated value control to a list column, so that the information also gets stored in the list.

Best regards,

Jan

we simply want to copy a field into another field so that the person that is filling out the form does not need to add repetitive fields.

so once the user inputs field A with Test I want field b to be populated with Test as well. The calculated values do not allow for editing I believe?

Re: nintex form copying field

you can do that with small javascript code.

the code itself will depend on type of your controls.

for text controls it will look like

  NWF$('#'+textbox1).change(function() {

    NWF$('#'+textbox2).val(NWF$('#'+textbox1).val());

  })
