Change caption for repeating subforms

Avatar

Level 7

Hi,

Here is a script on change event to change the caption of the repeating field:

form1.Page1.personalInfo.

Default caption is: Manager

My problem it is that works only for the first instant.

Does not work for the second, third and so on...instances

Any help

Thank you very much 

switch (xfa.event.newText)

{

case "A":

xfa.resolveNode("form1.Page1.personalInfo.caption.value.#text").value = "Manager";

break;

case "B":

xfa.resolveNode("form1.Page1.personalInfo.caption.value.#text").value= "Director";

break;

case "C":

xfa.resolveNode("form1.Page1.personalInfo.caption.value.#text").value= "Manager";

break;

}

Hi mmgiath,

form1.Page1.personalInfo.caption.value.#text will always refer to the first instance.

We need to first identify where you have added the code.

1) If the code is added on the field which is a part of the repeating instance, you can just use the script:

    

switch(xfa.event.newText)
{
case "A":
  xfa.resolveNode("this.caption.value.#text").value = "Manager";
  break;

case "B":
  xfa.resolveNode("this.caption.value.#text").value= "Director";
  break;

case "C":
  xfa.resolveNode("this.caption.value.#text").value= "Manager";
  break;
}

Hi mmgiath,

Try with the code of  kvdvijaykumar on event or index:change and change xfa.event.newText by this.rawValue.

Hope this helps.

Hi   mmgiath,

I guess the problem lies in indexing of the repeated subform. If you set the index of the repeated subform right. Then it will work.

Lets say the repeating subform's name is personalInfo. You have to change the caption of CostCentre_B which is not repeating. Try the following.

var i = this.parent.index ;(choose accrodingly for your repeating subform).

var currentPersonalInfo = xfa.resolveNode(("form1.Page1.personalInfo[" + i + "]);

// some mode code as per your requirement.

currentPersonalInfo.CostCentre_B.caption.val ue.#text").value = "As sou wish”;

Hope this helps.

Thanks,

Bibhu.

Hi Bibhu, thank you for your reply,

Costcentre_B is a repeating field inside the repeating subform PersonalInfo.

Do you want to say that both subforms and fields are getting repeated?

Hi ,

The below script would help you. Keep the script on click of the button.

Subfrm1.instanceManager.addInstance(1);

var countInst = Subfrm1.instanceManager.count;

var countAct = countInst - 1;

xfa.resolveNode("Subfrm1["+countAct +"].TextField1.caption.value.#text").value = "Director"

Below link will be for your reference...

If you want to repeat the captions like Manager, Director, Manager, Director can be done by doing very minor modifications in the script.

Thanks

Vjay.
