Livecycle Designer - Checkbox Java "If" Statment - Box won't uncheck

Level 2
Level 2


I am writing a simple form with two numeric fields and a checkbox. What I want to happen is when the user selects the CheckBox, the value of the first numeric field (purprice) is copied to the second numeric field (purpriceB). When the box is un-checked, the value in the second numebric field should return to null or 0.

Here is my statement. I placed it in the "Click" event of the checkbox (Java):



else if



The form works right on the first click by coping the 1st value to the 2nd field, but won't allow me t o uncheck the checkbox after it has been checked the first time.

Please try the following code.
I think this code can be solved your problem.
In the Click event of the CheckBox :
if (purprice.rawValue != purpriceB.rawValue)
purpriceB.rawValue = purprice.rawValue;
purpriceB.rawValue = 0;
this.rawValue = 0;
I hope this help 🙂

Don't forget in your if statement you only have 1 '=' which means you are assigning a value to the field in the if statement..

to verify a if statement you must use '==' or '===', and to verify if it is different you can use '!=' or '!=='
