Err, not sure I understood what your're after.

This script will look for the fields listed in MyFields and will save their values into the array MyValues.

var MyValues = [],

  MyFields = ["F0VerHR", "F1VerHR", "F1secondVerHR", "F2VerHR", "F3VerHR"];

MyFields.forEach(function (element) {

  var oNode = xfa.resolveNode(element);



/* Now do something with the results */

Hello, I tried this script but I does not work


Level 1

please I have another question:

I have 5 numeric fields in table and I want to get the average of these 5 fields

I have used this FormCalc

( Avg(Table7.Row1[1].F0VerHeightRatio, Table7.Row1[3].F1VerHeightRatio, Table7.Row1[5].F1secondVerHeightRatio, Table7.Row1[7].F2VerHeightRatio, Table7.Row1[9].F3VerHeightRatio)

but I want to exclude from average any one of this fields that is equal to zero or empty

{ or another idea:    if the state of these fields is visible then include it in the average -- but if state of one of these fields is not visible then exclude it from average) as the fields that I don't used is usually in an invisible status

please I need help it is very important for me
