Looping thru fields

Not applicable
Hello,



I would liek to write a function that upon ready:form would check to see if some fields have some text in them and if so - make sure they are visible.



Currently I have this on ready:form:



myField = topmostSubform.Page1.StaffPrep.WhatsNew



if (myField.Prod.Prod_Note.rawValue.length==0) {

myField.Prod.Prod_Note.presence = "hidden";

myField.Prod.CheckBox1.value = "Off";

}

else {

myField.Prod.Prod_Note.presence = "visible";

myField.Prod.CheckBox1.value = "On";

}



How would I change this to check all 11 fields (which have names like HR_Note and Sales_Note and Misc_Note)?

How about create an array with all 11 field names, loop through the array to check the indivual fields.



Have you tried to accomplish this through the object validation under the value tab...?

I have not - let me give that a try.



Thanks for responding.

I have tried writing the loop but it seems to be over my head. Can anyone help me with this?



I need to loop thru 11 fields, check their length and make them visible or invisible.



Thank you

You can loop through each object in the hierarchy using things like nodes.length. Email me if you'd like a better explanation and some sample script showing how to do that.

Thanks for the offer. I will do that. In the meantime - is this on the right track?



var y = ['TextField1_note','TextField2_note','TextField3_note'];



for each (x in y) {

if (x.rawValue.length == 0) {

x.presence = "invisible"

}

else {

x.presence = "visible"

}

Also, I know that I sent you a better solution, but I noticed something revisiting this post. Using "x.rawValue.length == 0" is probably not the best way to go. If "x.rawValue" is null, "x.rawValue.length" will be undefined and so, your script will not enter the "if" statement. Use "x.rawValue == null" instead.
