I would like a text box to automatically populate with a single letter refering to what was chosen in a dropdown menu ? how do i code this please?
drop down text box
heli 1 a
heli 2 b
heli 3 c
heli 4 d
Put these letters as the export values of the items in the drop-down, and then use this code as the custom calculation script of the text field:
event.value = this.getField("dropdown").valueAsString;
makes sense but its not working
My bad !!! it works !!!!!! thank you so much
Is there a way once this script is set up to allow the user to overwrite that field with a custom entry? This works EXCELLENT but there are a few cases in my process where a custom entry into that field would still be necessary at times but it seems that every time I try to enter something in it is just overwritten by the script again. Thanks for any help you might have!
Add this line of code before the current one:
if (event.source && event.source.name=="dropdown")
Excellent!!! You just made my day. Thanks! I'm not very good at code at all (meaning I have no idea what I'm doing ever) but this worked great. Thanks a lot!
