Yes...some of them work. This has been a very strange problem. For example, one field may fail to copy but other fields on the same form do complete the copy.
There is a user preference that controls whether automatic calculations are performed. Perhaps some users have turned this off. The most likely possibility is the field calculation order is not correct.
If you've checked both of those things and it still doesn't work, can you give an example of some text that this doesn't work with?
A different approach that avoids these issues is instead of setting up a custom calculation script in the read-only field, you can use something like the following in the Validate script of the text entry field:
getField("destination_field").value = event.value;
This way it will work if automatic calculations are turned off, and the calculation order doesn't come into play.
Is there anything entered into the 'Format' tab? The format will run after the Calculate, so it could be changing there if there is.
I like that suggestion, but does it work if you are opening several form via check boxes. The forms are opening in separate windows also.
Example : if I enter victims name on my primary form, will this option work on another form I opened in a separate window?
in Adobe Designer 7.0 I would like to know if it is possible to do the following.
Can you make an object have multiple values when using the global settings.
I have a radio button or check box that I would like selected depending on what fields are selected. I can configure single values for an object , but what if that object needs to be configured to be selected for value 0 and value 1. How do you configure a button to be selected for both value 0 and value 1 in the form. Thanks for your help.
