    Filling a form based on a Table

    Gene--O Level 1

      Good Afternoon,

       

      I have a 2 page form that I am creating.

       

      The first page is a timesheet. It has 2 fields of interest which are both repeated in a table with 15 rows:

      The first field is named "Date1". This field contains the day of the month (ex. 1, 2, 3...)

      form1.subform[1].Table1[0].Row1.Date1

      The second field is named "amIN". In this field, the employee will enter the time they started their shift. (ex. 08:00)

      form1.subform[1].Table1[0].Row1.amIN

       

      The second page will have fields where the employee will enter their activity for that particular day. These entries will contained 15 in fields named "DayofMonth[*]. Specifically, I want a script for a field on the second page, called "Dayof Month1" to populate the value of "Date1" ONLY if "amIN" is not null.

       

      If Row1.amIN is null, then I want the script to look to Row2.amIN. If it is null, then I want it to look to Row3.amIN, etc. I want it to scan each row for the first amIN that contains a value, and populate the corresponding value from the "Date" field into "DayofMonth1". Then I want it to continue to populate from the next amIN that has a value into "DayofMonth2", etc.

       

      I am probably not explaining this very well, but I hope someone can make sense of it.

       

      thanks!!!

          My table is on page 3. Fields to be filled in are on page 4.

           

          In page 4 calculate event:

           

           

          var myVal;

          var count = form1.pag3.sub3.Table3.Row1.all;

          for (var i=0; i<count.length; i++) {

            myVal = xfa.resolveNode("form1.pag3.sub3.Table3.Row1["+i+"].amIN").rawValue;

            if (myVal) {

            myVal = xfa.resolveNode("form1.pag3.sub3.Table3.Row1["+i+"].Date1").rawValue;

            fillIn(i, myVal);

            }

          }

           

           

          function fillIn(i, myVal) {

            var myFldToSet;

            var count = form1.pag4.sub4.DayofMonth.all;

            for (var j=0; j<count.length; j++) {

            myFldToSet = xfa.resolveNode("form1.pag4.sub4.DayofMonth["+j+"]");

            if (j == i) {

            myFldToSet.rawValue = myVal;

            }

            }

          }

           

          In page 3 validate event:

           

          xfa.form.form1.pag4.execCalculate();

           

          it should work if you properly adapt names to your conventions.

           

          Let me know.
