    Having issues with checkbox

    creditunion123

      Hi all.  I am fairly new to javascript and I am hoping someone can assist in what I am trying to do.  I need to do this right now using Javascript - not Livecycle.  Have not learned Livecycle yet plus the software version I am using does not support dynamic forms created by Livecycle

       

      I am trying to have a check box show based on whether another field is blank or not

       

      I have tried using two different scripts but with no luck.  Am I missing a step

       

      I have gone into said checkbox. 

      Check style is check

      Export Value is yes - but there is no value in my script

      I have tried having the check the box stating checked by default in the properties.  I have also tried having it not ticked.

       

       

      This is the code I am using in the actual field (not checkbox as that only allows action on mouse actions an the staff may not click anywhere in there if the form prefills for them

       

      //GET THE THIRD PARTNER

       

      var CPartner3 = this.getField("FormValues.accountNames_3").value

      var cb = this.getField("Checkbox34").value

      cb.defaultIsChecked(0, false);

       

      if (cPartner3 !="")

      {

        cb.defaultIsChecked(0, true);

      }

       

      //end

       

      I have also tried having if (cParther3 !="")

      {

        cb.presence = visible

      }

      else

      {

      cb.presence = hidden

      }

       

      // end

       

      Neither work

       

      The other code that places the word Partner works fine

       

      Any thoughts??
