Search only partial textField rawValue

DKinsley

My form has a textField that users enter part numbers separated by commas. I want to write an if statement that looks to see if one of the part numbers is included in the list. Is there a way to script to search for only part of a textField's rawValue or formattedValue?

So if the rawValue of textField1 is 1234, 4569, 3582

I want to be able to enter 4569 in textField2 (a different textField)  and click a button that runs a script to see if 4569 is included in the list of part numbers.

Is this possible?

Also: is it possible to send the comma separated part numbers to a list box?

I appreciate any help provided.

Here you go:

var aWords = TextField1.rawValue.split(","),

  cTest = this.rawValue,

  isIncluded = function (value) {

    return value.replace(/\s/g, "") == this.testValue.replace(/\s/g, "");

  },

  toTest = {

    testValue : cTest

  },

  iCount = 0;

// Check all words against the entered value

if (aWords.some(isIncluded, toTest) === true) {

  iCount += 1;

}

// Show a message, if the word was found

if (iCount > 0) {

  xfa.host.messageBox("The word '" + cTest + "' is already included in the list.", "Match found.", 0, 0)

}

I think highlighting the field would be really difficult to do. First the field would have to be set as rich text then you would need a method to change the fields color and background within that field. I guess you could grab the field data, and write it back out highlighting the string in question.
