Hi , I am trying to concatenate addr fields for the text field in the live cycle designer using java script  as below

this.rawValue = xfa.resolveNode("#subform[1].CAOName").rawValue + "\n" + xfa.resolveNode("#subform[1].Addr1").rawValue || "\n"
                   if((xfa.resolveNode("#subform[1].Addr2").rawValue)!= null)
                    {
                    xfa.resolveNode("#subform[1].Addr2").rawValue}
                    else
                    {xfa.resolveNode("#subform[1].City").rawValue||xfa.resolveNode("#subform[1].State").rawValue||xfa.resolveNode("#subform[1].Replyzip").rawValue

Open in new window


but i am only getting the CAO name and addr1 on my forms even though i have values for addr2, city, state , zip

can somebody help me to understand if the formula in have in the script layout is correct.


Thanks

Any error?
Are you sure this is returning a null value and not just a blank or undefined value?
xfa.resolveNode("#subform[1].Addr2").rawValue)!= null

If you alert the values do you get the values?

Try this :
this.rawValue = xfa.resolveNode("#subform[1].CAOName").rawValue + "\n" + xfa.resolveNode("#subform[1].Addr1").rawValue + "\n";
this.rawValue += ( xfa.resolveNode("#subform[1].Addr2").rawValue  || "") + ( xfa.resolveNode("#subform[1].City").rawValue || xfa.resolveNode("#subform[1].State").rawValue || xfa.resolveNode("#subform[1].Replyzip").rawValue );

I tried you script, if the addr2 field is null its is returning as

Name
Addr1
null
State, city zip.
trying to avoid the null if there is no addr2.

Strange...
Try this one :
this.rawValue = xfa.resolveNode("#subform[1].CAOName").rawValue + "\n" + xfa.resolveNode("#subform[1].Addr1").rawValue + "\n";
this.rawValue += (xfa.resolveNode("#subform[1].Addr2").rawValue  == null) ?"": xfa.resolveNode("#subform[1].Addr2").rawValue;
this.rawValue +=   xfa.resolveNode("#subform[1].City").rawValue || xfa.resolveNode("#subform[1].State").rawValue || xfa.resolveNode("#subform[1].Replyzip").rawValue;
