Fragment function "is not a function"

Avatar

Level 2

Hi All,

 

I am making a new fragment to help with some code a want to run often. I'm at the point where it should be working but whenever I attempt to reference it in the field I get an error saying "error: TypeError: form1.variables.employeeLookup.employeeLookupMain is not a function".

 

I have no idea what's wrong, I have a decent amount of javascript experience I can't see where I messed up the function. Can anyone help? Applicable code attached below:

 

Code that runs in the field: 

 form1.formPage.mainSub.initialUserData.empNo::exit - (JavaScript, client)
console.log("beggining of exit event");
//xfa.host.messageBox("1");
try{
	console.log("before the script call");
	var lookupReturn;
	//lookupReturn = form1.variables[0].employeeLookup.employeeLookupMain(this.rawValue);
	lookupReturn = form1.variables.employeeLookup.employeeLookupMain(this.rawValue);
	//lookupReturn = employeeLookup.employeeLookupMain(this.rawValue);
	console.log("after the script call");            
	if(lookupReturn == null){
		xfa.host.messageBox("Please enter a valid Employee number.");
		empNo.rawValue = null;
		initialUserData.name.rawValue = null;
	}//if
	else{
		//LINES BELOW MUST BE ALTERED TO REFERENCE THE FIELDS THAT THE LOOKUP NEEDS TO FILL
		//-----------------------
		name.rawValue = lookupReturn[fullName];
		//-----------------------
	}//else
}//try
catch(e){
	console.log('error: ' + e)
}//catch

 

employeeLookup fragment:

 form1.#variables[0].employeeLookup - (JavaScript, client)

//test build
//returns null if the lookup failed
//returns a tuple with all of the desired values if lookup succeded.
function employeeLookupMain(uNumber) {
	console.log("inside of lookup main");
	var funcReturn = null;
    
	var cURL = "/rest/services/SupportingApplication/GetUserByAssociateNo";
	var xmlhttp = new XMLHttpRequest();
	xmlhttp.open("POST", cURL);
	try {
        xmlhttp.send(uNumber.rawValue);
        xmlhttp.onload = function () {
        	try{
        		xmlDoc = processHTTPReturn(xmlhttp.responseText);
        	}//try
        	catch(e){
        		console.log("error: " + e)
        	}//catch

            if (xmlDoc == null) {
                funcReturn = null;
            } //if
            else {
                funcReturn = {
                    //Set all responses to a return in the tuple

    //error catch to see if the input value actually returned something
    try {
        xmlDoc.getElementsByTagName("fullName")[0].childNodes[0].nodeValue;
    } //try
    catch (e) {
        console.log("error: " + e);
        xmlDoc = null;
    } //catch

    return xmlDoc;
} //func

            

 

This fragment is attached to the form. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 

 

Side note: I know the code is littered with Try Catch's, which isn't great form, but it's really difficult to tell what's going on without them. I plan I taking most of them out after I'm finished developing.

I believe following is the correct way to call your function

lookupReturn = employeeLookup.employeeLookupMain(this.rawValue);

Also try changing the following line and see if that has any effect

'email': ((xmlDoc.getElementsByTagName("email")[0].childNodes[0]) ? xmlDoc.getElementsByTagName("email")[0].childNodes[0].nodeValue) : null

 

to 

'email': ((xmlDoc.getElementsByTagName("email")[0].childNodes[0]) ? xmlDoc.getElementsByTagName("email")[0].childNodes[0].nodeValue : null)

Basically move the last closing bracket.

@JohnSolomon0 form1.variables.employeeLookup.employeeLookupMain  does this even resolve correctly to the function?

No, that's the issue. That call just throws an error saying that it's "not a function". I don't understand why, I call a very similar function in a similar location and don't have this issue.

It looks like the function call worked either way, but that line change did it! Well... it threw other errors, but these ones were much more useful that the previous and I know how to fix them 🙂 Thank you!
