How to duplicate a field within a form


Recommended Posts

I need to duplicate a field that a user inputs within the same form in a hidden field. Parameters don't seem to work for this because it's within the same form. There was a script posted in the forum to do this kind of thing some time ago, but it doesn't seem to work:

var temp = document.getElementById("copy from field").value;

document.getElementById("copy to field").value = temp;

Any ideas on why the script doesn't work, or is there a simpler solution to get done what I am trying to do?

Hi,

In the example you provided the code will be executed on page load.

For example, you have a table with two fields: Field1 and Field2 (Field2 is hidden).

If FIeld1 has static value (or receiving parameter), then you can use your script on page load:

var temp = document.getElementById("InsertRecordField1").value;

document.getElementById("InsertRecordField2").value = temp;

But if you want the value to be copied on submit, you should use the following approach:

document.getElementById('caspioform').onsubmit = function()

{

var temp = document.getElementById("InsertRecordField1").value;

document.getElementById("InsertRecordField2").value = temp;

}

Place the code in the Footer.

Hope this helps.
