Field count

Avatar

Level 2

I need to track the number of Yes, No, and Checkbox selections made in a multiple page form. These need to be counted individually and summed for a total count to be displayed on the final page of the document. In other words, Yes was selected 10 times; No was selected 5 times; Checkbox was selected 4 times. 19 total selections were made. Can someone please help me with the javascript syntax to access the fields to insert these figures on the final page? The final form will be a .PDF created using Adobe LiveCycle Designer ES2.

This is the form hierarchy:

form1

Tables_P1

tblStatP1

Row1

Yes

No

RadioButtonList1

Checkbox1

The correct result is below. The only thing I was doing wrong in my code was putting the 1 in parenthesis. Thanks, Radzmar, for your help!

var nYes = 0;

var nNo = 0;

var nChk = 0;

for (i=1; i<=26; i++)

{

if(xfa.resolveNode("Page1.RadioButtonList"+i).rawValue === "Yes")

{

  nYes++;

}

if(xfa.resolveNode("Page1.RadioButtonList"+i).rawValue === "No")

{

  nNo++;

}

if (xfa.resolveNode("Page1.CheckBox"+i).rawValue === 1)

{

  nChk++;

}

}

this.rawValue = nYes + nNo + nChk;

Does each page have its own table (Tables_P2, etc) or is it all one big table?

You can use a loop to check all check button objects (check box and radio buttons) within your form.

Here's an example.

Okay... I had to redo the format of the entire form for reasons I won't go into.I'm no longer working with tables. The radio buttons, checkboxes, and numeric field are now on the same hierarchy level. This is the code I tried:

//initialize counts
var nYes = 0;
var nNo = 0;
var nChk = 0;
var nTotal = 0;

for (i=1; i<=26; i++)

     {
           if (("RadioButtonList"+i).rawValue = Yes)
           {
            nYes++;
           }
           else if (("RadioButtonList"+i).rawValue = No)
           {
            nNo++;
           }
           else if (("CheckBox" + i).rawValue = 1)
           {
            nChk++;
           }
     }


nTotal = nYes + nNo + nChk;
this.rawValue = nTotal;

I'm getting nothing.

Your script will not work, as you cannot use a variable in JavaScript to resolve a node.

Use the resolveNode method to use variables in the expression.

Also, to campare a value you have to use "===" or "==" instead of "=".

//initialize counts
var nYes = 0;
var nNo = 0;
var nChk = 0;
var nTotal = 0;

for (i=1; i<27; i++)

     {
           if (xfa.resolveNode("RadioButtonList[" + i + "]").rawValue === "Yes")
           {
            nYes++;
           }
           else if (("RadioButtonList[" + i + "]").rawValue === "No")
           {
            nNo++;
           }
           else if (("CheckBox[" + i + "]").rawValue === 1)
           {
            nChk++;
           }
     }


nTotal = nYes + nNo + nChk;
this.rawValue = nTotal;

Did you test the script I posted before? It will look for all checkButton objects in the whole form, no matter if in tables or subforms.

I did test your code and the form froze up and shut down LiveCycle. I copy and pasted your edits to my code and still nothing. There must be something small I'm missing. I probably won't get a chance to look at this again until Tuesday. I hope you'll be available to help me then. Thank you SO much!

Tuesday:

Okay, I have this code working except for the nChk portion. Since it's a check box, do I need to do something different with the comparison code?

var nYes = 0;
var nNo = 0;
var nChk = 0;
for (i=1; i<=26; i++)
{
   if(xfa.resolveNode("Page1.RadioButtonList"+i).rawValue === "Yes")
   {
    nYes++;
   }
   if(xfa.resolveNode("Page1.RadioButtonList"+i).rawValue === "No")
   {
    nNo++;
   }
   if(xfa.resolveNode("Page1.CheckBox"+i).rawValue === "1")
   {
    nChk++;
   }
}

this.rawValue = nYes + nNo + nChk;
