Acrobat Javascript assistance for comparing multiple fields and providing output

This one is a doozy for my non-programming head. I have tried to at least define the syntax for a javascript but I just can't wrap my head around the code for the following:

- I have 3 textboxes: "Total_Equipped_Move", "Total_Packed_Move" and "Total_Equipped_Packed".

- "Total_Equipped_Move" has a value calculated from other text boxes.
- "Total_Packed_Move" has a value calculated from other text boxes.

- "Total_Equipped_Packed" has a value calculated from other text boxes.


I would like the "MoveRate" textbox to display the lesser value between "Total_Equipped_Move" and "Total_Packed_Move" unless the sum of "Total_Equipped_Packed" is 16 or greater, then output "0".

I've taken a stab at it but my output is "TEM" instead of the value of "TEM", which also means that neither follow on statements are being calculated:

var TEM = Number(this.getField("Total_Equipped_Move").valueAsString);
var TPM = Number(this.getField("Total_Packed_Move").valueAsString);
var TEP = Number(this.getField("Total_Equipped_Packed").valueAsString);
if (TEM < TPM) {
event.value = "TEM";
}
else if (TEM > TPM) {
event.value = "TPM";
}
else if (TEP > 16) {
event.value = "0";
}

Assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

You must change the order of the comparisons.

Good grief, one more try to get it right:

var TEM = Number(this.getField("Total_Equipped_Move").valueAsString);
var TPM = Number(this.getField("Total_Packed_Move").valueAsString);
var TEP = Number(this.getField("Total_Equipped_Packed").valueAsString);
if (TEP > 16) {
event.value = 0;
}
else if (TEM > TPM) {
event.value = TPM;
}
else if (TEM < TPM) {
event.value = TEM;
}

Replace

event.value = "TEM";

with

event.value = TEM;

Awesome, thanks. I removed the "" from all 3 event.values. That was a goof on my part. 🙂 
However, it still does not appear to be calculating the last else/if statement.

The last clause can only happen if both values are equal, and larger than 16. Is that what you had in mind?

No, it should supersede the output of the first two values.

Then it should appear as the first condition, not the last one.

Maybe that wasn't the best explanation. Let me try again:

If TEM is < TPM, then choose TEM. If TEM is > TPM then choose TPM. If TEP is  > 16, then ignore TEM and TPM and output 0.

My apologies, I appear to have misunderstood you. I see, after re-reading, that you were saying that the order of the comparisons was the issue, which is what Bernd, below, said. Thanks again and my bad for misunderstanding.

So, like this?

var TEM = Number(this.getField("Total_Equipped_Move").valueAsString);
var TPM = Number(this.getField("Total_Packed_Move").valueAsString);
var TEP = Number(this.getField("Total_Equipped_Packed").valueAsString);
if (TEM < TPM) {
event.value = TEM;
}
else if (TEM > TPM) {
event.value = TPM;
}
else if (TEP > 16) {
event.value = 0;
}

Ooof, my bad. Long day already!

var TEM = Number(this.getField("Total_Equipped_Move").valueAsString);
var TPM = Number(this.getField("Total_Packed_Move").valueAsString);
var TEP = Number(this.getField("Total_Equipped_Packed").valueAsString);
if (TEP > 16) {
event.value = "0";
}
else if (TEM > TPM) {
event.value = "TPM";
}
else if (TEM < TPM) {
event.value = TEM;
}
