I'm having some issues with this script. I've used it successfully, but slightly different than this version.

I have confirmed each checkbox has a export value, but I can't get it to display the checkboxs' export value within the text field I have it assigned to.

I'm using this in the "custom calculation" section:

var ybl = this.getField("Length.Youth").value ;

var abl = this.getField("Length.Adult").value ;

if(ybl <= 31) {

    event.value = (ybl.value) ;

}

if(abl >= 32) {

    event.value = (abl.value) ;

}

Bernd is right. Change these lines:event.value = (ybl.value) ;event.value = (abl.value) ;To:event.value = ybl;event.value = abl;

What if both of these conditions are true? Or neither?

They cannot both be true, as the the Length.Youth only goes up to 31 and the Length.Adult starts at 32 and goes up.

OK. So what exactly is the issue? What do you see in the field?

Oops:

I did forget they do overlap at 31.

So Length.Youth can go upto 31 & Length.Adult starts at 31.

So I just need to pull the corresponding values from the two checkboxes ("Length.Youth" & "Length.Adult")

Youth goes from 27-31

Adult goes from 31-35

Currently, when any box is selected, it does not show any value. Sometimes it will randomly show a "3"

Are there any error messages in the JS Console?

Can you share the file with us (via Dropbox, Google Drive, Adobe Document Cloud, etc.)?

This is the error I'm getting:

InvalidSetError: Set not possible, invalid or unknown.

Event.value:14:Field PlayerBatLength:Calculate (the "event.value:XX" will change from 11, 14, 17 depending on the size checkbox selected)

I don't think I share with the world at this point.

Bernd is right. Change these lines:

That was it! I should have noticed that. Sometimes the answer is to plain you don't even see it.

Thanks to both of you!

A value of a value makes no sense.
