Should this be a function?

Hi all, I have the code below attached to about 3000 small boxes that insert a text when clicked, it works very well, but I can't help thinking that it's not very efficient!

I've tried fragments, but each box needs to be referenced and I assume that if you change one fragment you change them all.

I also looked at functions and script objects, but I'm lost as it seems to me that you can't use (if - then) etc. within a function.

Would someone be kind enough to tell me if it's possible to convert this to a function and roughly how, please.

Many thanks..Sean

var deleted = substr(Header.currnturl[0].rawValue,64,150)

if (Header.currnturl[0].rawValue == null and $.rawValue == null) then

xfa.host.messageBox("Please paste a valid URL link into the first page", "No URL Link?", 0, 0)

elseif

($.rawValue == null) then

$.rawValue = deleted

$.access = "readOnly"

Rectangle10.assist.toolTip = deleted

else

var urljoin = concat((Header.urlstart[0].rawValue),

($.rawValue))

xfa.host.gotoURL(urljoin)

endif

Hi Sean,

Could you please re-post this question to the LiveCycle Designer ES forum?

Having said that, take a look at the following
