If-And statements

MinusZero

Hi,

I have made some pretty cool PDF forms and have some background with programming, but not so much with javascript.

I have created an order form of sorts. In the form, the user places a 1 or more in the order column next to the item they wish to order. After selecting all their items, they click a button to complete the order. When the button is clicked I am using if statements to determine which fields are greater than or equal to 1 and copying that order number and a description to a text field.

The problem i have is that when using for example three separate if statements, only the first item that meets the criteria is copied. If I use else if, only the last one that meets the criteria is copied. What i need is like an 'and' command so that I can concatenate multiple items in the one text field. I can concatenate within one if, but i need to concatenate it with the next true result.

This what i have tried: on the button click event

-Order is the field the user changes.

-OrderPlaced is the text field to be filled in with the order - it will get text like "1 X Bacon and Egg Roll" and has a carriage return for the next item.

if (this.resolveNode("TableBreakfast.Row1.Order").rawValue >= 1) {

  this.resolveNode("form1.#subform[1].OrderPlaced").rawValue = this.resolveNode("TableBreakfast.Row1.Order").rawValue + " X " + "Bacon and Egg Roll" + "\n";

}

if (this.resolveNode("TableBreakfast.Row2.Order").rawValue >= 1) {

  this.resolveNode("form1.#subform[1].OrderPlaced").rawValue = this.resolveNode("TableBreakfast.Row2.Order").rawValue + " X " + "Banana, Pear & Raspberry Loaf - Plain" + "\n";

}

if (this.resolveNode("TableBreakfast.Row3.Order").rawValue >= 1) {

  this.resolveNode("form1.#subform[1].OrderPlaced").rawValue = this.resolveNode("TableBreakfast.Row3.Order").rawValue + " X " + "Banana, Pear & Raspberry Loaf with Raspberry Ricotta" + "\n";

}

What i am trying to achieve is to have a second page with a basic order summary that is easier to read. The order page is quite congested with over 50 items.

Any help would be appreciated

Never mind, solved it. The fault was with my code. I needed to add the existing contents to the additional contents.

if (this.resolveNode("TableBreakfast.Row1.Order").rawValue >= 1) {

  this.resolveNode("form1.#subform[1].OrderPlaced").rawValue = this.resolveNode("form1.#subform[1].OrderPlaced").rawValue + this.resolveNode("TableBreakfast.Row1.Order").rawValue + " X " + "Bacon and Egg Roll" + "\n";

}
