Using merge tags within the HTML field of a form

I am trying to display the name that has been entered into a name field of a form and display it within a HTML block within the form.

I am using a merge tag as follows {Name:72.3}

The field with the id 72 is of course the name field, and it is only collecting first and last name info.

Within the HTML block on the form I am seeing exactly the markup {Name:72.3} rather than the field value.

Is it possible to display the name value from a field within a form’s HTML block?

Gravity Forms does not support using the merge tags like that natively. The merge tags are not available until after the entry is created. However, there is a 3rd party plugin that can do that:
