I have used the following JavaScript to set the default item in a "List form Field"   The script is working and the correct item in the combo box is selected  but the event has not fired to reload the list box. below.  If I select an item manually (i,e. with a mouse) it works fine.  What have I missed.

var elm = document.getElementById("idAttachmentsTable");
          if (elm == null || elm.rows.length == 0)
          document.getElementById("idAttachmentsRow").style.display='none';
         
         
         
  _spBodyOnLoadFunctionNames.push("fillDefaultValues");



function fillDefaultValues()
{
var opt=document.getElementById("ctl00_m_g_f12af616_6ab4_4c5c_a59b_146a2e9b17ae_ff61_ctl00_ctl00_SelectGroup");

var opts = opt.options;
var l = opts.length;
opts.selectedIndex = 4;

      
      }

The question is not very clear. Can you please explain a bit more. Is this the entire code?

Also please use the code block to write the code. That shows us a bit of clear code.

Hi,
as long as I do not have all the HTML code, its a little bit of blind coding - but the following should work.
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://dev.dse.local/sites/ee/SiteAssets/jquery-1.8.2.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
function SetPreselect() {
var optionToSelectText = "YOURTEXTOFTHEOPTIONTOBESELECTED";
jQuery("#idAttachmentsRow").hide();
jQuery("#ctl00_m_g_f12af616_6ab4_4c5c_a59b_146a2e9b17ae_ff61_ctl00_ctl00_SelectGroup").val(optionToSelectText);
}
_spBodyOnLoadFunctionNames.push("SetPreselect");
</script>

Open in new window


Please adjust the text of the variable optionToSelectText to fit the option text of your choice e.g. "Sh Sq Rooms".
