I have a repeater that has three items per row: Size, Shape, Count. How can I show totals based on Size and Shape? I'd like to show How many total Big Squares there are, how many total Little Circles there are, etc.

A field in the repeater row is a checkbox with different values. Except some values are the same. This causes issues. For instance Small and Medium share a value while Large and Larger share a different value. Internal form calculations work just fine, but since the only differentiator is the label and not the actual value, frm-stats and frm-math calcs are off. Oops. T_T

You could do it with jQuery. You could set up the fields in the form and then fill them in using jQuery to count. There might be an easier out-of-the-box solution, but I don't know what that is.

<p>Thanks, Rob. I think I might do separate views with filtering. See if doing a simple frm-stats on the results might work. Building a simple dashboard, and the HUD just needs counts of size and type. Never imagined it'd be this difficult. I must be complicating it in my mind.</p>
