Hiding text when one or more variables are null

Good morning, community!

 

I have a description field that is made up of three components:

  1. Commodity name (var. 1)
  2. Quantiy (var. 2)
  3. Container Size (var. 3)

This populates in a descriptor in a notes area as "-- [Commodity name (##qty. x Container Size)] --"

 

My current script is:

event.value = "-- [" + this.getField("Commodity_Line1").valueAsString + " (" + this.getField("Qty_Line1").valueAsString + "qty. x " + this.getField("Container_Line1").valueAsString + ")] -- ";

 

However, I would like to hide the descriptor when one or more of the above variables are null.

Any guidance will be greatly appreciated.

Try this script:

 

if (this.getField("Commodity_Line1").value != this.getField("Commodity_Line1").defaultValue && this.getField("Qty_Line1").value != this.getField("Qty_Line1").defaultValue && this.getField("Container_Line1").value != this.getField("Container_Line1").defaultValue) {
event.value = "-- [" + this.getField("Commodity_Line1").valueAsString + " (" + this.getField("Qty_Line1").valueAsString + "qty. x " + this.getField("Container_Line1").valueAsString + ")] -- ";}
else {event.target.value

That's exactly what I was looking for.
