I am getting this error when I enter debug mode on my webapp with the checkbox:

bryceh57660644_0-1601670556100.png

 

I tested the logic as a text field and it is passing through fine, so it is something to do with my checked logic, but I cannot figure out why.

 

Java script is: 

document.getElementById("control_San")[0].checked = "<%=ctx.vars.San%>"

 

in the HTML <body>, this is corresponding code: 

<tr>
<td style="padding: 5px 0px 0px 25px;">
<div id="control_San" style="position: relative; overflow: hidden; margin: 5px 3px 5px 0px; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none; font-style: normal; color: #ffffff;"><input name="San" id="control_San" style="border-radius: 6px; margin: 0 3px 5px 0px; width: 50px;" type="checkbox" label="San" />Increased sanitation measures</div>
</td>
</tr>

Hi,

 

Move the JS to the bottom of the page, or add to $(function(){}), or just inline into the DOM itself instead of using JS:

<input name="San" id="control_San" style="border-radius: 6px; margin: 0 3px 5px 0px; width: 50px;" type="checkbox" label="San" checked="<%=ctx.vars.San%>"/>

 

Thanks,

-Jon

I think Script is running even before the html element is rendered into document. You can try moving the script to different places than where you have it now?

Hello @bryceh57660644 

 

What are you trying to do with the javascript code?

In the HTML code, I see only one checkbox but the javascript is trying to do something with the first checkbox among multiple checkboxes with the same id.

 

Can you share your full code?

 

Thanks,

Manoj
