Can't access textfield value from another page

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:



eApp.ENB-7-07-CAGAIN_Page_5.a3z_data_AdditionalInfo::click - (JavaScript, client)


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

with this.parent.AccountNumber.rawValue;


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.

    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.
