Concatenate Autocomplete elements


Recommended Posts

I am able to get the below working on a Submission form with the element set to text box. Is there a way to do the same thing, but with the autocomplete element chosen? So far I have not been able to get it to work when I change to element type from text box to autocomplete. It does not add the entries together

When you have an autocomplete form element ID of the element changes each time the page loads. So you need to refer to it by name. For instance:

 


var position1 = document.getElementsByName("InsertRecordPosition1")[0].value;

 

Refer to

 

This is what I currently have, it is not joining the field together. It was working before the changes you suggested, just not with autocomplete.

 

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">

function concatenate()
{
var position1 = document.getElementByName("InsertRecordPosition1")[0].value;
var position2 = document.getElementByName("InsertRecordPosition2")[0].value;

var allpositions = position1 + ","+ position2;

document.getElementByName("InsertRecordAllPositions")[0].value = allpositions;

}

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

Only for autocompelete and cascading dropdowns you need to use name you should change

document.getElementByName("caspioform").onsubmit=concatenate;

to

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

So then this?
 

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">

function concatenate()
{
var position1 = document.getElementsByName("InsertRecordPosition1")[0].value;
var position2 = document.getElementsByName("InsertRecordPosition2")[0].value;

var allpositions = position1 + ","+ position2;

document.getElementsByName("InsertRecordAllPositions")[0].value = allpositions;

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

it worked perfectly I appreciate that very much.

I ran into a slight problem however. I have 64 fields that are going to be combined into the Single field. Each field will have a name in them and I currently have it so that it inserts a , in between each entry. Is there a way to have it so that if the field is blank, it doesn't insert a , when it combines the entries?

 I currently get the following UN1, UN2,,,,,,,,UN10,UN11,, etc.

Ok then you need to have an array. Try this:


 

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">

function concatenate()
{
var p = new Array(" InsertRecordPosition1", " InsertRecordPosition2", " InsertRecordPosition3", " InsertRecordPosition4");
var allpositions = "";

for (var i = 0; i < p.length; i++) {

var item = document.getElementsByName(p[i])[0].value;
if (item != "") {

allpositions += ","+ item;
}
}
allpositions = allpositions.substring(1);
document.getElementsByName("InsertRecordAllPositions")[0].value = allpositions;

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

It did not combine them into Allpositions

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">

function concatenate()
{
var p = new Array(" InsertRecordPosition1", " InsertRecordPosition2", " InsertRecordPosition3", " InsertRecordPosition4", " InsertRecordPosition5", " InsertRecordPosition6", " InsertRecordPosition7", " InsertRecordPosition8", " InsertRecordPosition9", " InsertRecordPosition10", " InsertRecordPosition11", " InsertRecordPosition12", " InsertRecordPosition13", " InsertRecordPosition14", " InsertRecordPosition15", " InsertRecordPosition16", " InsertRecordPosition17", " InsertRecordPosition18", " InsertRecordPosition19", " InsertRecordPosition20", " InsertRecordPosition21", " InsertRecordPosition22", " InsertRecordPosition23", " InsertRecordPosition24", " InsertRecordPosition25", " InsertRecordPosition26", " InsertRecordPosition27", " InsertRecordPosition28", " InsertRecordPosition29", " InsertRecordPosition30", " InsertRecordPosition31", " InsertRecordPosition32", " InsertRecordPosition33", " InsertRecordPosition34", " InsertRecordPosition35", " InsertRecordPosition36", " InsertRecordPosition37", " InsertRecordPosition38", " InsertRecordPosition39", " InsertRecordPosition40", " InsertRecordPosition41", " InsertRecordPosition42", " InsertRecordPosition43", " InsertRecordPosition44", " InsertRecordPosition45", " InsertRecordPosition46", " InsertRecordPosition47", " InsertRecordPosition48", " InsertRecordPosition49", " InsertRecordPosition50", " InsertRecordPosition51", " InsertRecordPosition52", " InsertRecordPosition53", " InsertRecordPosition54", " InsertRecordPosition55", " InsertRecordPosition56", " InsertRecordPosition57", " InsertRecordPosition58", " InsertRecordPosition59", " InsertRecordPosition60", " InsertRecordPosition61", " InsertRecordPosition62", " InsertRecordPosition63", " InsertRecordPosition64");

var allpositions = "";

for (var i = 0; i < p.length; i++) {

var item = document.getElementsByName(p[i])[0].value;
if (item != "") {

allpositions += ","+ item;
}
}
allpositions = allpositions.substring(1);
document.getElementsByName("InsertRecordAllPositions")[0].value = allpositions;

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