Copy field contents on button click in adaptive form

Avatar

Level 2

Hi all,

 

I've spent hours going in circles, trying different approaches and I'm just totally stuck. I've created an adaptive form in AEM for forms. I have a hidden text field with a text string value, and I am trying to script a button to select and copy the contents of that text field, when clicked. Then I'd like a message to pop up, confirming the text was copied.

 

Here's the method I found on W3schools:

var copyText = document.getElementById("textFieldIWantToCopy");
copyText.select();
document.execCommand("copy");
alert("Copied the text: " + copyText.value);

 

Absolutely nothing happens when I use this script. I'm still adjusting between LiveCycle Javascript and normal JavaScript, so it could be I just don't have the syntax/terms to do it right, yet.

 

Does anyone know how to make this work? Thanks so much for your help!

@JLNdev  Works for me

 

Put this on button click:

document.getElementById("guideContainer-rootPanel-basics-basics1-guidetextbox___widget").select();
document.execCommand("copy");
alert("copied");

 

In Adaptive form go to code editor and place the script. Make sure to replace "guideContainer-rootPanel-basics-basics1-guidetextbox___widget" with correct id for the text field

Mate, I had this exact problem and the same experience of going around in circles for hours. I'm still an old-school LC Designer developer and I'm eager to get the code right. Your code helped me and I'll share mine in an effort to iterate towards a final acceptable method..

 

var copyText = document.querySelector("#input");
copyText.select( vForm.oPage.sfpControlPanel.txtVersion.rawValue );
document.execCommand("copy");

My efforts were substantially incomplete, but it was the first time I sought a solution outside W3schools or the XFA Scripting Reference materials so I thought I'd include it in case you can gather more breadcrumbs in search of a working solution..
