The Option allows the creation of options for products created by a Product. Option fields have special functionality which displays how much selecting the option will add (or subtract) from the total.

Important: If your choice labels contain any HTML or special characters such as ampersands, commas, hyphens or brackets of any type, you MUST enable the show values feature and give each choice a simple and unique value which does not contain any special characters. Failure to configure values could cause issues for features such as conditional logic.


Option General

  • Field Label
    Enter the label of the form field. This is the field title the user will see when filling out the form.

  • Description
    Enter the description for the form field. This will be displayed to the user and provide some direction on how the field should be filled out or selected.

  • Product Field Mapping
    Select which product this field is tied to. This option is only available when there are two or more products. When only one product exists, Option|Option Fields and Quantity will automatically apply to that product.

  • Field Type
    Select the type of field from the available form fields.

    • Drop Down
      The Drop Down field type will display as a drop down field on your form.
    • Checkboxes
      The Checkboxes field type will display as a group of checkbox fields on your form.
    • Radio Buttons
      The Radio Buttons field type will display your product options as radio buttons.
  • Rules
    These properties set rules for how the data should be handled.

    • Required
      A required field will prevent the form from being submitted if it is not filled out or selected.
    • No Duplicates
      A field set to allow no duplicates will require that a value entered in a field does not currently exist in the entry database for that field.


Option Appearance

  • Placeholder
    The Placeholder option allows you to place text inside the field that will hint at the expected input.

  • Description Placement
    Overrides the default placement of the field description, placing it either above or below the field.

  • Custom Validation Message
    If you would like to override the default error validation for a field, enter it here. This message will be displayed if there is an error with this field when the user submits the form.

  • Custom CSS Class
    Enter the CSS class name you would like to use in order to override the default styles for this field.

  • Enable enhanced user interface
    By selecting this option, the Chose jQuery library will become active, allowing drop downs to be searched.

  • Field Size
    Select a form field size from the available options. This will set the width of the field. This option is only available when the Drop Down field type is selected.


Option Advanced

  • Admin Field Label
    Enter the admin label of the form field. Entering a value in this field will override the Field Label when displayed in the Gravity Forms administration tool.

  • Default Value
    If you would like to pre-populate the value of a field, you can specify a static value or select a variable value from the predefined list.

  • Visibility
    Select the visibility for this field. Field visibility set to Everyone will be visible by the user submitting the form. Form field visibility set to Admin Only will only be visible within the Gravity Forms administration tool. Setting a field to Admin Only is useful for creating fields that can be used to set a status or priority level on submitted entries.

  • Allow field to be populated dynamically
    Check this option to enable data to be passed to the form and pre-populate this field dynamically. Data can be passed via Query Strings, Shortcode and/or Hooks.

  • Enable Conditional Logic
    Create rules to dynamically display or hide this field based on values from another field. Remember, to use conditional logic, you will need to create a drop down, checkbox or multiple choice field.
