How can I do the following, where NOTESFIELD is an actual notes field and the rest of the line is passthru HTML?

<SCRIPT language="Javascript">
message = "NOTESFIELD";
if (message !="") {alert(message);...etc

I **DON'T** want to reference the field by assigning it as folows:
myVar = document.forms[0].NOTESFIELD.value
instead I want to just stick the physical field in the middle of the code.  I'm told it can be done, I've been given several different ways, none of which I can get to work.

Hi

1. Create a field called JScript on the form and layout looks similar to this.

<Script Language="Javascript">
[JScript]
</Script>

2. Mark the above paragraph as passthru HTML

3. In the Default Value , use the JS as a formula
message := "NOTESFIELD";
@if(message!="";"alert('message')";"");

This should work a treat !


Good Luck

Thanks for the example, however, I'm getting the error 'JScript is not defined'.  Maybe I did something wrong.

1) I created a notes field called JScript with the following default formula:

message := "NOTESFIELD";
@if(message!="";"alert('message')";"");

2) I placed the following passthru html directly on the form:

<Script Language="Javascript">
[JScript]
</Script>

Hi

Define the JScript a ComputedForDisplay field.

PS: [JScipt] denotes field JScript.

Good luck

I think the problem is this line:

message := "NOTESFIELD";

This is setting a variable called 'message' to a text string of "NOTESFIELD".  Instead of setting the variable to a text string I want to set it to be another field on my form.  This syntax does not seem to work...

Hi

It should work, silly mistake...

message := "NOTESFIELD";
@if(message!="";"alert('" + message + "')";"");

Good Luck

Hi

Ignore previous comment, Take this

message := "NOTESFIELD";
@if(message!="";"alert('" + message + "')";"");

Good Luck

It does not work.  It prompts me with the word 'NOTESFIELD' instead of referencing the value of NOTESFIELD which happens to be '1'.

I appreciate your help... please, to see what I'm trying to do can you click on the following URL and look at Figure7 and Figure8.  The part that does not work is the

message = "PopUpMessage"

where PopUpMessage is an actual field called PopUpMessage.  Do you see anything wrong with the example?

The example you give works however it does not solve my problem.  It displays a text string on the screen but it does not seem to be displaying the actual contents of a field.  Please see my comment.

Hi

Had a look at the page and here is my proposed solution,

In the Register button use this code
========
FIELD PopUpMessage := PopUpMessage;
Success := Success;

ISNULL := @If( @Trim(FLD)=""; @True; @False);

@If( ISNULL ; @Do(@Set("Success"; @False); @SetField( "PopUPMessage"; "alert(\'Invalid entry\')")); @Do(@Set("Success"; @True); @SetField( "PopUPMessage"; "")));

@Command([ViewRefreshFields]);

@If( Success; @Do(@PostedCommand([FileSave]); @Command([FileCloseWindow]));@Return(0))
================

The Passthru HTML of Javascript goes like this
==========
<SCRIPT language="JavaScript">
 [--PopUPMessage--];
</SCRIPT>
==========



Good Luck

you could use a computed text which would contain something like:

"<SCRIPT language=\"Javascript\">    
function clicked(){
       message ="+NOTESFIELD+";
       alert(message);}
 </SCRIPT>"

obviously the document has to be saved before you can use the value....

Thank you for your proposed answer, it may work, however I need to know how to do it with passthrough HTML... my question is how to place a real notes field inside of a block of passthrough Javascript code.

Hemanth, in regards to your proposed solution:  I'm assuming in place of [--PopUpMessage--] I will replace with an actual field called PopUpMessage but do I leave the square brackets?  Do I format that line as the HTML STYLE?

Hi Snocross

Replace [--PopUpMessage--] with field , no square bkts. Mark the script block including the field as Passthru HTML or HTML Style.
