Hi, how can I sum up the following values?

[A-H]&[J-U]&[W-Z]

[a-z]

[I,II, III, IV, V, VI, VII]

if (event.value=="A") { event.target.textColor = color.red;

        this.getField("Field1").textColor = color.red;

        this.getField("Field2").textColor = color.red;

        this.getField("Field3").textColor = color.red; }

else if (event.value=="B") { event.target.textColor = color.red;

        this.getField("Field1").textColor = color.red;

        this.getField("Field2").textColor = color.red;

        this.getField("Field3").textColor = color.red; }

else if (event.value=="C") { event.target.textColor = color.red;

        this.getField("Field1").textColor = color.red;

        this.getField("Field2").textColor = color.red;

        this.getField("Field3").textColor = color.red; }

else if (event.value=="D") { event.target.textColor = color.red;

        this.getField("Field1").textColor = color.red;

        this.getField("Field2").textColor = color.red;

        this.getField("Field3").textColor = color.red; }

else if (event.value=="a") { event.target.textColor = color.red;

        this.getField("Field1").textColor = color.red;

        this.getField("Field2").textColor = color.red;

        this.getField("Field3").textColor = color.red; }

else if (event.value=="b") { event.target.textColor = color.red;

        this.getField("Field1").textColor = color.red;

        this.getField("Field2").textColor = color.red;

        this.getField("Field3").textColor = color.red; }

else if (event.value=="c") { event.target.textColor = color.red;

        this.getField("Field1").textColor = color.red;

        this.getField("Field2").textColor = color.red;

        this.getField("Field3").textColor = color.red; }

else if (event.value>=0) { event.target.textColor = color.black;

          this.getField("Field1").textColor = color.black; 

        this.getField("Field2").textColor = color.black;

        this.getField("Field3").textColor = color.black; }

else if (event.value=="I") { event.target.textColor = color.green;

    this.getField("Field1").textColor = color.green;

    this.getField("Field2").textColor = color.green;

    this.getField("Field3").textColor = color.green; }

else if (event.value=="II") { event.target.textColor = color.green;

    this.getField("Field1").textColor = color.green;

    this.getField("Field2").textColor = color.green;

    this.getField("Field3").textColor = color.green; }

else if (event.value=="III") { event.target.textColor = color.green;

    this.getField("Field1").textColor = color.green;

    this.getField("Field2").textColor = color.green;

    this.getField("Field3").textColor = color.green; }

else if (event.value=="IV") { event.target.textColor = color.green;

    this.getField("Field1").textColor = color.green;

    this.getField("Field2").textColor = color.green;

    this.getField("Field3").textColor = color.green; }

else if (event.value=="V") { event.target.textColor = color.green;

    this.getField("Field1").textColor = color.green;

    this.getField("Field2").textColor = color.green;

    this.getField("Field3").textColor = color.green; }

else event.target.textColor = color.blue;

as well I would like to sum up the "get.Field" method. I tried this:

this.getField(["Field1","Field2","Field2"]).textColor = color.red;

but it didn't work

can you please help me?

OK, then I would do it like this:

var newTextColor = color.black;

var romanNumerals = ["I", "II", "III", "IV", "V", "VI", "VII"];

if (romanNumerals.indexOf(event.value)!=-1) {

    newTextColor = color.green;

} else if (/^\d+$/.test(event.value)) {

    newTextColor = color.blue;

} else if (/^[a-z]+$/i.test(event.value)) {

    newTextColor = color.red;

}

var fields = ["Field1", "Field2", "Field3"];

for (var i in fields) this.getField(fields).textColor = newTextColor;

what do you mean with the only options?

edit:

there's a table with 30 rows and 3 columns. actually there are more options. field 1-3 only represents one row in this table

the color of one row should depend on the value that ist entered in the target field

well I think I'll just number them eg Field11, Field 12, Field 13, Field 21, Field22, Field23,.. are there any other options?

thank you try67​ this is exactly what I was searching for. but i don't really understand wherefore you define

  1. var newTextColor = color.black; 

is this because of the presetting of the color? so that every field with the preset textcolor black is affected on the entered value or is it just random?

That's in case the value doesn't match any of the conditions.
