Calling a function to perform multiple actions

Avatar

Hello.

I can't call this function to save my life and would appreciate any help.

Background

I have an exclusion group of 8 radio buttons. I have some follow-up radio  buttos that are visible only if a certain radio button is selected (rawValue 1).

However, I want to set the follow up radio buttons to null when I click on any other radio button value (rawValue 2-7).  So considering there are 10 follow-up radio buttons, I don't want to have that much code in the click event of each initial radio button.

Goal

I'm trying to make a script object function that sets all the follow-up radio button values to null. I would then ideally call this function on the click event of the other initial radio buttons.

What I Tried

//script on the form1 script object called "Refresh"

function refreshvalues() {

followup1.rawValue = null;

followup2.rawValue = null;

followup3.rawValue = null;

followup4.rawValue = null;

......//and so on

}

//script on the click event of each other initial radio button

form1.variables.Refresh.refreshvalues();

// I've tried putting different things in the ()s to no avail.

Solution:

When referencing form objects from a script object function, you have to use the absolute reference. I thought I could use Control-click since the script lies on the root node; that was incorrect. Control-Shift-Click brought the correct reference.

function a(form1)

{

xfa.resolveNode("form1.Page1.....

}

As you can see, not having form1 disabled the entire function.

Ok let me refine/simplify my question.

I can call the function if the target objects are in a named subform...but if they have to be looked up the function will not work.

For reference, here's the actual function script:

function a(form1)

{

xfa.resolveNode("Page1.Page1.#subform.flowedsubform.contacts.brokeragename").rawValue = null;

}

I assume I need to use something different than "form1".  Any ideas?
