Drop down menu value

  1. Is it possible to have a different value attribute for the drop down items?
    For example:
    <option value="johndoe@email.com">John Doe</option>

    I want the drop down to submit an email address when the user selects a name.

  2. Currently no, this isn't possible as a feature. It is possible by writing some custom PHP and using an API hook.

    What are you trying to accomplish? If you are wanting to do notification email routing this is a built in feature. So if you want to send the notification to a person in the drop down, you can do so in the Notification settings for the Admin Notification.

    We do plan on making it possible to have a different value and option label in a future release.

  3. This thread haven't been answered yet. Sorry for reviving this post again.

    But i think i found the solution the create a hook for predefined choices have different value than label.

    $choices["My New Choices"] = array("Choice 1|ryan1", "Choice 2|ryan2");

    The Label and Value is separated by using "|" / "OR" symbol.

    -tested for drop down on 1.5.rc2.2

  4. @osky1980 This is an old thread. The capability to have a different value was added to Gravity Forms a few releases ago. So it is a feature that is in the form builder for drop down, radio button and checkbox fields.
