Using Gravity Forms ‘gform_polls_results_ajax_response’ PHP filter

The gform_polls_results_ajax_response filter allows you to override the Ajax response for Gravity Forms Polls.


To apply the filter to all forms:

add_filter('gform_polls_results_ajax_response', 'your_function_name', 10, 2);

To target a specific form, append the form ID to the hook name (format: gform_polls_results_ajax_response_FORMID):

add_filter('gform_polls_results_ajax_response_1', 'your_function_name', 10, 2);


  • $response (array): An associative array containing the properties to be returned in the Ajax response. The properties available in the array are as follows:
    • canVote (bool): Indicates if the user is allowed to vote.
    • resultsUI (string): The results HTML, confirmation, or an empty string.
  • $form (Form Object): The current form.
