Simple Javascript if else


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to insert values in fields in an Submission Page based on the values of adjacent fields.

The script is in the Footer. It is not working. The Organizer_Fee, Yearbook_Fee and BookClub_Fee are being populated with the "Yes" value every time.

Here's my script:

function calculate()

{

var order_organizer = (document.getElementById("InsertRecordOrganizer"));

var order_yearbook = (document.getElementById("InsertRecordYearbook"));

var order_bookclub = (document.getElementById("InsertRecordBookClub"));

if (order_organizer = "Yes")

{

document.getElementById("InsertRecordOrganizer_Fee").value = (10);

}

else

{

document.getElementById("InsertRecordOrganizer_Fee").value = (0);

}

if (order_yearbook = "Yes")

{

document.getElementById("InsertRecordYearbook_Fee").value = (25);

}

else

{

document.getElementById("InsertRecordYearbook_Fee").value = (0);

}

if (order_bookclub = "Yes")

{

document.getElementById("InsertRecordBookClub_Fee").value = (50);

}

else

{

document.getElementById("InsertRecordBookClub_Fee").value = (0);

}

}

/* On submitting the webform, the function calculate is executed */

document.getElementById("caspioform").onsubmit=calculate;

hello,

I see that you have only one '=' for 'if' statement. The comparison should always be '=='. Also, I don't know if

document.getElementById("InsertRecordBookClub_Fee").value = (0); is how we assign value to a field. I have always used like: document.getElementById("InsertRecordBookClub_Fee").value = 0;

i.e without brackets in the value.

When trying to access a form element, the type of the form element is important. For example if the form element is a radio, the way you reference it in the script is different. Example:

If Organizer is a radio button, note that a radio button element normally does not have an ID for itself however each option of the radio button has it’s own ID which can be referenced as: InsertRecordNameX

X can be 0 for the first option, 1 second option and so far…

So you may need to make some changes to your script.

Best,

Bahar M.
