Concatenation problem with text fields as checkboxes



I hope someone can help.

I am trying to concatenate several text fields together (WMA1, WMA2, WMA3) into another field (WMA). The text field are in my submission data page as checkboxes with text when the checkboxes are checked.

I have copied the concatenation JavaScript from the tutorial and I am having a problem. I am currently experimenting with only two of the fields. The purpose is to have multiple checkboxes but when the user selects on of the boxes, the others become disabled. Then i need to get the text value of the selected text box into another text field that will be used to search later. When I hit submit, the destination text box has the value of the selected checkbox, but it concatenates with the other text value of the other checkbox that isn't checked.

It is puzzling me and I can't get it figured out.

Please help the newbie.

Just an update: You could use the Calculated Values on this one. Calculated Value form element generates dynamic calculations that automatically update as users interact with your form. Similar to Formula Fields and Calculated Fields, you can construct the calculation using functions, logic, constants, values from other fields and SQL expressions that you can use for your Total: https://howto.caspio.com/datapages/datapage-components/calculated-values/


Try to use Formula Field instead: https://howto.caspio.com/tables-and-views/data-types/formula-fields/

I hope it helps!
