(function () {

	
    var sItems = getField('PlanerListeLinie').valueAsString;
    var sItems2 = getField('PlanerListeLinieTelefon').valueAsString;
    var sItems3 = getField('PlanerListeLinieMail').valueAsString;
	
    if (!sItems) {
        app.alert("Die Liste ist leer", 3);
        return;  // Don't continue
    }

	
    var aItems = sItems.split(/\r/);
    var aItems2 = sItems2.split(/\r/);
    var aItems3 = sItems3.split(/\r/);

    
    this.getField('TestName').setItems(aItems);
    this.getField('TestTelefon').setItems(aItems2);
    this.getField('TestMail').setItems(aItems3);
	
    app.alert("Planer Linie wurden in die Liste übernommen", 3);

})();

 

I dont need any export Values and found an other solution.

 

Code for TestTelefon

var start = this.getField('TestName').currentValueIndices;
var ziel = this.getField('TestTelefon');

ziel.currentValueIndices = start; 

same for TestMail and now if i select an item in the List TestName, the other ones changes to the same index...

You can do it like this:

Give your selections in each field export values from 1 to 5, and use this code in Dropdown3 field as custom calculation script.

if(this.getField("Dropdown1").value == 3 && this.getField("Dropdown2").value == 3){
event.value = 3;}
else event.value = "";

Problem is that i populate All three boxes from a Text field and from that they have no Export value. 

I use setItems() to do that.

You said you are selecting items from box now you said you populate box from text field?

How do you know if it's item 1 or 2 or 3? How do you populate them?

Ok, from beginning. At first a User can write down the entries in 3 Text fields, Name, number and Email. 

 Then He cann fill up the boxes with their lists. 

 

After that i want that He can select Name 1 in Box 1 and Box 2&3 are select the correspending number and Mail... 

 

You know what i mean? 

So people from other teams can fill up the boxes with their own employees without to go to the Code in the fields

Should the other drop-downs be editable by the user? If not, just convert them to (read-only) text fields and use the code provided above as their calculation script.

i use the following code:

 

(function () {

	var sItems = getField("PlanerListeLinie").valueAsString;
    if (!sItems) {
        app.alert("Die Liste ist leer", 3);
        return;  // Don't continue
    }	
    var aItems = sItems.split(/\r/);  
    this.getField("Linienplaner").setItems(aItems);
   app.alert("Planer Linie wurden in die Liste übernommen", 3);

})();

setItems(aItems, bItems)

will not work for export value...

To set export values you must use an array of arrays of strings, like this:

this.getField("Dropdown1").setItems([ ["Item 1", "Export Value 1"], ["Item 2", "Export Value 2"] ]);

Code for TestTelefon

var start = this.getField('TestName').currentValueIndices;
var ziel = this.getField('TestTelefon');

ziel.currentValueIndices = start; 

same for TestMail and now if i select an item in the List TestName, the other ones changes to the same index...

New Code, but it doesnt work...i cant see the mistake...

 

(function () {

    var sItems = getField('PlanerListeLinie').valueAsString;
    var sItems2 = getField('PlanerListeLinieTelefon').valueAsString;
    var sItems3 = getField('PlanerListeLinieMail').valueAsString;
	
    if (!sItems) {
        app.alert("Die Liste ist leer", 3);
        return;  // Don't continue
    }

    var aItems = sItems.split(/\r/);
    var aItems2 = sItems2.split(/\r/);
    var aItems3 = sItems3.split(/\r/);


this.getField('TestName').clearItems();
this.getField('TestTelefon').clearItems();
this.getField('TestMail').clearItems();
for (var i = 0; i < aItems.length; i+=1) {
    var b = aItems[i];
    this.getField('TestName').insertItemAt(b, i, 0);
    }
// for (var i = 0; i < aItems2.length; i++) {
//     this.getField('TestTelefon').insertItemAt(aItems2, i, 0);
//     }






    // this.getField('TestName').setItems(aItems, aItemsA);
    // this.getField('TestTelefon').setItems(aItems2);
    //this.getField('TestMail').setItems(aItems3);
	
    app.alert("Planer Linie wurden in die Liste übernommen", 3);

})();

 

i hope that this will work to fill the combobox, but adobe doesnt accept this, invalid argument is printed in console at function insertItemAt...any ideas?
