Auto Set Fields

Objective: if Corporate Name is entered as Regency Holdings, associated fields get auto filled...if Corporate Name does not equal Regency Holdings, fields await input...I have the following code:

<script language="JavaScript">
function Regency() {
if (document.forms[0].CndnOwnFirstName.value="Regency Holdings")
document.forms[0].CndnOwnStreet.value="3rd Flr Trade Winds Bldng";
document.forms[0].CndnOwnCity.value="Nassau";
document.forms[0].CndnOwnStProv.value="New Providence";
document.forms[0].CndnOwnZipPC.value="P.O. Box CB-12724";
document.forms[0].CndnOwnCountry.value="The Bahama Islands";
document.forms[0].CndnOwnHomePhone.value="242-326-5205";
document.forms[0].CndnOwnRel.value="Nominee";
}
else if (document.forms[0].CndnOwnFirstName.value=="Regency Holdings")
document.forms[0].CndnOwnStreet.value="";
document.forms[0].CndnOwnCity.value="";
document.forms[0].CndnOwnStProv.value="";
document.forms[0].CndnOwnZipPC.value="";
document.forms[0].CndnOwnCountry.value="";
document.forms[0].CndnOwnHomePhone.value="";
document.forms[0].CndnOwnRel.value="";
}  
</script>

Doesn't work...suggestions please.

Thanks,
Ron

PS... event is triggered by the following:

<input type="text" name="CndnOwnFirstName"  value="$CndnOwnFirstName$" onblur="Regency()" onkeypress="return handleEnter(this, event)" size="20" style="text-transform: capitalize; font-family:Arial; font-size:10pt"; font-family:Arial; font-size:10pt"></font></td>

OK...in trying to decipher this problem myself, I shortened the code to look like the following:

<script language="JavaScript">
function Regency() {
if (document.forms[0].CndnOwnFirstName.value="Regency Holdings")  
alert("RH Yes");
document.forms[0].CndnOwnStreet.value="3rd Flr Trade Winds Bldng";
document.forms[0].CndnOwnCity.value="Nassau";
document.forms[0].CndnOwnStProv.value="New Providence";
document.forms[0].CndnOwnZipPC.value="P.O. Box CB-12724";
document.forms[0].CndnOwnCountry.value="The Bahama Islands";
document.forms[0].CndnOwnHomePhone.value="242-326-5205";
document.forms[0].CndnOwnRel.value="Nominee";
}
</script>

with the alert inserted figured an easy way to trace...If I type in Regency Holdings, everything flows just fine...HOWEVER, if I type in XYZ Corp, as soon as I loose focus (onblur event) you can see in the background XYZ Corp is changed to Regency Holdings and the alert statement comes up...Soo, somehow in the code above the field CndnOwnFirstName is getting reset to Regency...Does this help any?

Thanks,
Ron

Read: http://www.echoecho.com/javascript6.htm

If we wrote browser="MSIE" we would actually store "MSIE" in the variable called browser.
When you write browser=="MSIE" javascript knows that you want it to compare rather than assign a value.

SO, this statement
(document.forms[0].CndnOwnFirstName.value="Regency Holdings")

is actually assigning (and not comparing). That is why you see XYZ Corp getting changed to Regency Holdings.

Do this.
function Regency() {
     if (document.forms[0].CndnOwnFirstName.value=="Regency Holdings") {
      alert("RH Yes");
      document.forms[0].CndnOwnStreet.value="3rd Flr Trade Winds Bldng";
      document.forms[0].CndnOwnCity.value="Nassau";
      document.forms[0].CndnOwnStProv.value="New Providence";
      document.forms[0].CndnOwnZipPC.value="P.O. Box CB-12724";
      document.forms[0].CndnOwnCountry.value="The Bahama Islands";
      document.forms[0].CndnOwnHomePhone.value="242-326-5205";
      document.forms[0].CndnOwnRel.value="Nominee";
     }else{
         lert("RH No");
      document.forms[0].CndnOwnStreet.value="";
      document.forms[0].CndnOwnCity.value="";
      document.forms[0].CndnOwnStProv.value="";
      document.forms[0].CndnOwnZipPC.value="";
      document.forms[0].CndnOwnCountry.value="";
      document.forms[0].CndnOwnHomePhone.value="";
      document.forms[0].CndnOwnRel.value="";

     }      
}

Almost thought we were there!...still am having the problem if I type in, e.g., XYZ Corp, field gets changed to Regency Holdings...my adjusted code is as follows:

<script language="JavaScript">
function Regency() {
if (document.forms[0].CndnOwnFirstName.value="Regency Holdings"){  
alert("RH Yes");
document.forms[0].CndnOwnStreet.value="3rd Flr Trade Winds Bldng";
document.forms[0].CndnOwnCity.value="Nassau";
document.forms[0].CndnOwnStProv.value="New Providence";
document.forms[0].CndnOwnZipPC.value="P.O. Box CB-12724";
document.forms[0].CndnOwnCountry.value="The Bahama Islands";
document.forms[0].CndnOwnHomePhone.value="242-326-5205";
document.forms[0].CndnOwnRel.value="Nominee";
}else
if (document.forms[0].CndnOwnFirstName.value!="Regency Holdings"){
alert("RH No");
document.forms[0].CndnOwnStreet.value="";
document.forms[0].CndnOwnCity.value="";
document.forms[0].CndnOwnStProv.value="";
document.forms[0].CndnOwnZipPC.value="";
document.forms[0].CndnOwnCountry.value="";
document.forms[0].CndnOwnHomePhone.value="";
document.forms[0].CndnOwnRel.value="";
}
  }
</script>

Thoughts? Thanks for the input!

Don't know if this helps but if I type in XYZ Corp, alert comes back as "RH Yes"...would have expected "RH No"...??? since XYZ Corp <> Regency Holdings...

OK, this is VERY bizzare...with your suggested code, if I type in "Regency Holdings", alert NO gets triggered...Boo...if I do a copy/paste of the text "Regency Holdings" from code into field, everything works!!! Perplexed...

Perplexed has found the solution!...way back in my Q/A I refered to the input line

onkeypress="return handleEnter(this, event)"

this routine turns the first letters of the input line text into capitals...so what I viewed as being "Regency Holdings" was in fact, computer wise, "regency holdings"...if I type in with "shift" the r & h of the 2 words, works just fine...probably, if possible, put in a if/or for "regency holdings" vs Regency Holdings in the JS routine...

Thanks for all your help.
