Hello there, I thought this would be straight forward and simple, but I have hit a wall.
I cant seem to access values from another page in a script.
I'm trying to set a value of a text field to the value of a text field that is in another page.
On the click event(just for testing) I have:
this.rawValue = eApp.ENB-7-07-CAGAIN_Page_4.AccountNumber.rawValue;
It doesnt get the value.
But if i copy create a field on the same page(page 5 here) with the same info, I can access
I can get it to work, by copying the textfields to the page and hiding them, then using their value,
but this seems messy and unnecessary.
I just want to be able to access fields on another page, I would have thought it would be as easy as form.page4.accessthisvalue
Any help is DEEPLY appreciated, been banging my head for a loong time.
There should not be a problem doing this, you can reference a field anywhere on the form. Are you getting any script errors? My first guess would be to rename the field ENB-7-07-CAGAIN_Page_4 so that it does not have the hyphen character in it, it might be trying to subtract 7 from a variable it thinks is called ENB.
Wow I am shocked, I think the - character makes it crash for some reason.
I took out the dash in the name and it worked.
Sadly I cant really remove the dashes from the final product, so need to find a way of referencing it with the dashes.
Looking into get element, not sure if it might work.
Any input is appreciated.
By the way, I appreciate the help immensely, it gave me direction and saved some of the little sanity I have left.
Glad I could help,
If you can't get rid of the hyphen from the field name you could try either;
this.rawValue = eApp.resolveNode("ENB-7-07-CAGAIN_Page_4").AccountNumber.rawValue
this.rawValue = eApp["ENB-7-07-CAGAIN_Page_4"].AccountNumber.rawValue
You can also change the binding name so the XML still comes out with a hyphen but the field name uses something else.
