I'm trying to create a form that captures a lot of data, particularly vehicle accident data. Some of the item values are very long. What I would like to do is to allow those completing the form to select the Item value from the drop-down box, but populate the form with the export value, which I plan to have as numerical. So if we have item values of Apple, Banana, and Cookie, with corresponding export values of 1, 2, 3, when the user selected Banana, the form would display 2. Can that be done? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
Yes, very easily. Just apply the numeric values as the export values of the items in your drop-down and then use something like this as the custom calculation script of the text field where you want to display them:
event.value = this.getField("Fruit").valueAsString;
