Referencing VirtualField with weird alphanumeric appended to it by Caspio

Recommended Posts

Inspecting the webpage I see that caspio in some cases appends an alphanumeric code to a virtual field  ex: cbParamVirtual23_5cc2f7c259e4b5

I've read and used fairly successfully the following to reference the value:

 

document.querySelector('[id*=cbParamVirtual23]');

 

My question: is there a more explicit way to reference this virtual field?  Reason being the  asterisk is a wildcard and it gets messy when referencing cbParamVirtual2  if there is a cbParamVirtual23 present prior.

Thanks Vitaliksssss.  however, is there a way to capture and reference the alphanumeric key that's appended? 

 

I have a use case where i'm using the following fields in my table:
- fno1_paytype
- fno1_Start_Time
- fno1_End_Time
- fno1

I'm having trouble accessing fno1 because  

document.querySelector("[id*=InsertRecordfno1_]"); 

  isn't catching the correct field :(

Ultimately I may have to rename fields, but since I have a lot of javascript, as well as multiple datapages already built and working which references the above table fields, renaming would be a worst case scenario.

Excellent. thank you.  I will give this a try next time.  I ended up renaming my fields, it wasn't as time consuming as I thought, but will look into what you've shared in future scenarios.
