Hi. I need to collect data from several different drop-downs, then combine the results into a single array in my data table. How would I do that?

 

Example:

If I collect 5 as the value for dropdown_1, and 3 for the value of dropdown_2, and 4 for the value of dropdown_3, I would need to be able to use that to create an array in another field (dropdown_values) such as:  5, 3, 4

 

I'm guessing this is a javascript thing. Any idea how to do that?

 

Thanks for any help.

Hello abitaquest,

 

As far as I know, there is an article how Concatenate/Combine two fields into one field.

In your case, if I understand correctly, dropdowns will be dynamic fields.

I have edited the script:



<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">


function concatenate()
{
   var elems = document.getElementsByTagName("*");
   for (var i=0, m=elems.length; i<m; i++)
      {
         if (elems[i].id && elems[i].id.indexOf("InsertRecorddropdown_1") != -1)
            {
                var position1 = elems[i].value;
            } 
      }

   var elems = document.getElementsByTagName("*");
   for (var i=0, m=elems.length; i<m; i++)
      {
         if (elems[i].id && elems[i].id.indexOf("InsertRecorddropdown_2") != -1)
            {
               var position2 = elems[i].value;
            }
      }

   var allpositions = position1 + ", " + position2;
   document.getElementById("InsertRecorddropdown_values").value = allpositions;
}

document.getElementById("caspioform").onsubmit=concatenate;
</SCRIPT>


I hope it helps.
