Hello, I have a recurring scenario in one of my forms where I want a text field to be conditionally populated with a specific value depending on a condition being met. One of these values is a text string. Here are my field types with what I want to accomplish:

[2057]= The target text field which I want to conditionally populate

[457]= text field type, that performs a numeric math calculation within it (output is only integers)

[464]= text field type which creates a text string using a text "calculation". The result is what appears as a numeric range. (integers from two other fields with a hyphen between them)

[338]=number field which dictates whether condition is met. If [338] == 0, then I want [2057] to be populated with [457], and if it is not equal to 0 then I want [464] to be populated in [2057].

My understanding is that conditional calculations can only use integers. Is anyone willing to help me with a custom code snippet to accomplish this? Thank you so much!

I have, but I thought this wasn't an option to use within the form itself? I would like to be able to have this occur in real time within the form. Sorry if I am misunderstanding how to use this feature though!

You need to do it with jQuery if you want real time.
