Hi there,

Go to Advanced properties > More options > Scripts and in the Initialization script set Type to Custom.

function ff_FORMNAME_init(){
setInterval(DescriptionNew, 1000);
} // ff_FORMNAME_init

function DescriptionNew(){
jQuery( "#CEFRLevel > legend span:last-child" ).html(ff_getElementByName('txtFirstName').value + " " + ff_getElementByName('txtLastName').value);
)};

NOTE: In the code above you have to replace FORMNAME with the name of your form and adjust element names which you want to copy into the label. I used txtFirstName + txtLastName for purpose of testing. You can add as many as you want, but code above is the way to go :)

Let me know how it goes.

Regards,
Mario

Hi Mario

I've finally got round to looking at this again, but I've fallen at the first hurdle!

Below you can see the results of my inspector, but I can't see any lines with the class of *legend*.



Which class am I looking for exactly?

Regards

I've just noticed in another section I have that the section title has a class of bfLegend-l.

It's not the section title I'm trying to populate, but the section's description, which has a class of bfSectionDescription. So I guess the question should be is how do I populate ONLY that one section's description programatically?

Regards
