Hi, I don't know how to code in PHP so I need help with this simple task. The copy address field that Formidable provides only works if you use the group address field. But I want to use their country/state lookup add-on so I have to have the address fields individually. I have two kinds of addresses, physical and mailing. How do I copy physical to mailing when a checkbox that says they are the same is checked?

This is a common request and I have a standard process to accomplish this that uses jQuery. This is a tutorial I wrote in 2014 that explains how to do this. I have not looked at this post since I published it. The post demonstrates how to create a form with a tabbed interface using a 3rd-party plugin. There's something wrong when I click a tab. The page scrolls to the top. It's annoying but doesn't break the functionality. The field binding and copying works as it should. The code you need to use starts at line 28 in the The After-fields jQuery code at the bottom of the page.

Thank you for your response but I can't find this tutorial in FM website. The earliest tutorial was from 2019.
