Buenas tardes! Hola a todos. I need help! I have 2 forms, but only one pdf.php, i need 2 forms, and, 2 pdf templates, understand me? Thanks!

Use if else conditions to display the correct data for each form.

<?php if ( $form_ID == 1 ){ echo $fields[field_key_value_form1]['value']; } elseif ( $form_ID == 2 ) { echo $fields[field_key_value_form2]['value']; } else { echo $table; } ?>

The if/else renders content for the pdf based on the id of the form. So if the form has id 1 then echo field_key_value_form1.
( $form_ID == 1 ) is the id of the ninja form.
field_key_value_form1 is the value from the form field (find it in ninja forms)

Does anybody know all of the available values that are possible or how they relate to the merge tags?

The "label" tag in this shows me label for the radio field, but with the merge tag, {field:q1:label} shows the selected radio label under options. Is it possible to grab that data on this?

I have a radio select with 4 options; Fully Met, Partially Met, Not Met and N/A. Each of those options have different values. The code shows the radio value, not the radio label.

I'd like to pull that Label to the PDF vs the radio value.

Bonus points question:
Has anybody successfully pulled a calculation onto the PDF form? My PDF needs to show a calculation value from the is basically a quiz that our users take and I need to report the score. The merge tag for that is {calc:scoreval}.

Many thanks in advance!
