Help please - I am very new to this .... I have a performance review form. In Field 1 are the ratings (1-5). I would like the definition text box below it to auto fill with verbiage based on the the number they pick ... if they choose Excellent then wording will auto populate in text box. I have the definitions on a separate page - and would love to have them link versus writing it all out.
Example - page 1 - Field 1 they select excellent and Field 2 automatically fills with text filed 4 from page 4. Is there a way to do this?
Do you want the user to be able to overwrite or edit this text, or should it only be determined based on their selection in the first field? Also, what kind of field is it? A drop-down? A radio-button group? Something else?
I don't see which field you want to use as the target for the text... The comments fields at the bottom of page 1?
But there's no text field there... You just added static text. Also, the description texts are not a part of a field, which means they can't be copied directly, and have to be hard-coded into the script, which is not ideal.
Your next steps should be:
- Add the text fields for the descriptions under each drop-down (make sure to give them meaningful names that match those of the drop-down fields they correspond to).
- Add (read-only) text fields to hold the descriptions on page 2, again with meaningful names.
Once you've done that post the file again and then we could proceed with the script.
