How can we do that ? -> displaying repeater field values in a really TABLE on the last page of a form (like a summary) ???

the following solution only shows the fields content in rows without tabs, spaces, delimiter ...

https://formidableforms.com/knowledgebase/repeatable-section/#kb-review-before-submit

 

we need such same solution (this only works in for views or emails) https://formidableforms.com/knowledgebase/repeatable-section/#kb-display-data-in-a-table

 

but to show the repeater fields in a table on last page of a form ideally with a final total row ;-)
(see screenshot for example)

 

Thanks & Regards

The key to your answer is found here: https://formidableforms.com/knowledgebase/repeatable-section/#kb-review-before-submit. This is custom code to create your own shortcode. You include whatever HTML and calculations you want in the shortcode.

Maybe it is possible to give us and/or other plugin users an example for a simple table with such custom shortcode ?

I'm sorry, I can't. This is not an official Strategy 11 support site. We are a community of volunteers without any affiliation to Strategy 11. Those of us that answer questions are generally freelancers, independent software developers, and agency representatives. Many of us make our living from Formidable Forms contract work. Writing a significant amount of code to satisfy this requirement is not something anyone would usually do without payment.

In my case, if I've had a requirement like this in the past for a paid project, I would make the code available through Formidable Masterminds, but to write and test code like you require is time consuming. If you need help from a developer, I suggest you visit the Formidable Masterminds Developers Directory at https://formidable-masterminds.com/developers-directory/. You may find someone willing to help within your budget.

There are also plenty of tutorials on line explaining how to write shortcodes. You can start with the knowledgebase example, add the HTML as shown in the second article, and calculate the total. Good luck.
