Interesting addInstance problem

Avatar

Former Community Member

Am reading data from the database now using FormCalc, and can have differing number of dynamic subforms depending on the number of entries of a particular kind.

I generate the proper number of subforms to match the data, but I can't access the fields in the subform to fill them in.

          while (oDataConn.isEOF() == false)do
               // Create a new instance and get a reference to it.
            var oSPC_1 = form1.SPC_1_Deadline_SF.SPC_1_List._SPC_1_Bldg_Info.addInstance(0)

            oSPC_1.BuildingNumber.rawValue = something

 
            oDataConn.next()
          endwhile

Gives me an error that the accessor oSPC_1.BuildingNumber.rawValue is unknown.

Any idea what I'm doing wrong, or more likely what I am addressing wrong?

Thanks in advance.

1. try to invoke the JavaScript method written in a Script Object as

scrObjName.jsFunctionName();

if this is not helps,try #2

2. Place your Javascript code in click event of a button (hidden button)

Form your formcalc code write:

btnHidden.execEvent("click")

Hope this atleast will help.

Can you post your form?

There must be some hierarchical structure issue.

The problem is invalid reference to the field BuildingNumber

The actual field name is BldgNumber

Still gives the error about not finding the accessor.

Surround your code within try catch block and locate the issue. Definitely this time you will not get the error at the same location.

Have tried using calculate or validate of a dummy field (just like setting the static names on the master page) in Javascript and it seems to be working a bit better.

It works but only pn the last value.  If I have 7 entries, it only sees the 7th one.

Any advice on how toi get the formcalc main portion to call a Javascript event or function.

Thanks,

Patrick

execEvent did the trick.  Plus making sure all the binding and repeat counts are correct. .

Thanks.
