Hi. Can a hidden field's value vary depending on visible field's contents?

My form has a checkbox field with the two choices being "male" or "female". Is there a way to have a hidden field's value vary depending on which box is checked? For instance, if the "male" choice is checked, I would want "WM" in the hidden field's value. And if the "female" choice is checked, I would want "WF" in the hidden field's value. Is this possible? If so, how would I accomplish this? Thanks.

Hi Dave,
Yes. Add a field to your form and then add some custom js or css to hide the input.
Now use a little bit of JQuery to fill the hidden inputs value based on what's selected.
If you need more info I'll need to see the actual form.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.
