I have recreated this tutorial for my purposes. However I would like to add a secondary, or more outputs.

 

Example: Select Chasis: Rear Bracket. The output is 205.95 in the Row1.Price. I would also like other outputs in other fields like Row1.Status would output "Inprogress" and Row1.State would output "Broken".

 

var oAssemblyParts = {
	Chasis: [
		["-","None"],
		["Rear Bracket",205.95,"Inprogress","Broken"],
		["Front Bracket",185.95,"Stalled","Working"],
		["Long Support",44.95,"Finished","Stuff"],
		["Front Bearing",48.95,"Stuff","More More Stuff"]

Any help appreciated. Javascript not my first language. 🙂

This can be done in couple of ways, I belive easiest for you would be to use script in "Row1.PartSelect" field as 'Validation',

something like this:

var ss = this.getField("Row1.Status");
var st = this.getField("Row1.State");
if(event.value == "Rear Bracket"){
ss.value = "In progress";
st.value = "Broken";}
else if(event.value == "Front Bracket"){
ss.value = "Stalled";
st.value = "Working";}
else if(event.value == "Long Support"){
ss.value = "Finished";
st.value = "Stuff";}
else if(event.value == "Front Bearing"){
ss.value = "Stuff";
st.value = "More More Stuff";}
else {
ss.value = "";
st.value = "";}

Thanks for the reply. This does work (and thanks for that) there is only 1 "check" as it only checks the "Row1.PartSelect" field.

 

I would need "Row1.AssebmlySelect" field check. Then check that the "Row1.PartSelect" field. Then if they both match output the Row1.State & Row1.Status.

First set field  as var:

var aS = this.getField("Row1.AssemblySelect").valueAsString; and then use it like this:

if(aS == "Chasis" && event.value == "Rear Bracket")

If you have delays or it doesn't work for you try moving script to "Calculate".

If you use price as export value in "Row1.PartSelect", then you will need to adapt it to read item instead of export value.
