    Check box to change charge rates.

    CoreyScheck

      Basically I am trying to implement javascript or formcalc to perform the following function...

       

      When you check the highcost_Yes check box the value in field charge1 changes to 10, with no check in the highcost_Yes field the value of charge1 should be 8.

      I have the default value for the charge1 field set to 8 as well if that may be causing me issues.

       

      check box highcost_Yes (values set to 1 or 0)

       

       

      This is the javascript snippit I tried:

       

      if (highcost_Yes ==1)

      {

      charge1 == 10

      }else{

      charge1 == 8

      }

       

      After some reaserch I tried this formcalc code:

       

      if(highcost_Yes == 1)then
      (charge1==10)

      elseif (charge1==8)
      endif

       

      I have been learning javascript this term in school so while I understand the concept I am far from practicing it efficiently.


      Can anyone tell me where I went wrong?  Thanks!

          Hi Corey;

           

          If I read your post correctly, highcost_Yes is the name of the radio button field.  A radio button (and any field) is an object, so you need to look at its properties and not the field itself:

           

          if (highcost_Yes.rawValue ==1)

          ...

           

           

          rawValue will contain the current state of the field.

           

           

           

          You may also try posting in the LiveCycle Designer or LiveCycle Forms forums.  There are a lot more JavaScript and FormCalc people on that list.

            Thanks for the information. I reposted in the other thread, hopefully I will get some javascript focused assistance there.


            Thanks again for taking the time to give me some guidance, I really appreciate it!
