I have a form that I am building and I am trying to use a Date Field as sort of a Header. So on the first page I will fill he Date Field with a date, and I want the date to be visible on proseding paged but read only.

 

I have tried with a Date Field called "Date" on the first page and then the Date Field on the next page I called "Copy_of_Date" and made it read only and added this.getField("Date").value; but I am getting an error mesage 2022-08-06.png

As Validation script of "Date" field use this:

this.getField("Copy_of_Date").value = event.value;

Set the format of field "Copy_of_Date" to None and you will see what value you get.

Okay I changed the "Copy_of_Date" format to none, and is does not populate the field at all. I am not getting the error but it does not show the date.
