I am looking for something specific and have been unable to find it on the forums. I am not even sure if it is feasible. It isn't a requirement, it is a nice to have.
Basically I have a 3 page form that I created to assist those submitting requests to me to do them consistently and help mitigate the potential for inaccuracy. It is a fairly simple form and I found some answers on the forums that helped me get it about 95% there.
Basically I would like something where the Total Cost box (on page 1 which is derived from a sum calculation from fields on page 2) will be divided by the number of fields with information entered in them from page 3 and show the results in a dollar value in the field Per Person Cost on page 1.
I have 38 total fields with two different naming conventions on page 3 that need to be included in a script.
PRINT NAME1 (it goes to PRINT NAME30
PRINT NAME 1_2 (it goes to PRINT NAME 8_2)
Hoping I have explained myself well enough. To summarize:
Basically if 12 names are entered on page 3, the value shown in the Total Cost box on page 1 ( say $60.00) would be divided by 12 resulting in a Per Person Cost ($5.00) on page 1.
I apologize if this has been answered elsewhere, I couldn't find it.
I would suggest grouping all the fields using the "dot" notation. For example, "PrintName.1", "PrintName.2", "PrintName.1_2"
This naming provides an easy methodology for acquiring the fields you want to count.
If this naming is used, then put this calculation script in the 'PerCost' field
// Get list of fields to count
var aFldList = this.getField("PrintName").getArray();
var nCnt = 0;
// Count fields that are not empty
event.value = this.getField("Total Cost").value/nCnt;
I'm assuming the name for the total cost field is "Total Cost", change this to the correct name
