Reference display value of related field with Javascript

Recommended Posts

Hello. I would like to concatenate two text fields (both foreign keys) and populate a third text field in the same table with the concatenated value when submitting a DataPage. I understand how to do this when I am concatenating the stored value of the fields, but I would like to concatenate the display values of the two lookup fields, not their stored values. Please advise.

Hi @ray,

You could use the Calculated Value on it.  Caspio introduced new features which you can find here: https://howto.caspio.com/release-notes/caspio-bridge-13-0/
This release includes a new feature, Calculated Values.  This allows you to generate calculations which you can use to concatenate your fields.

I hope this helps!

Hi Just to add to the previous comment above,  In the new release of Caspio version 17.0 , you can now add the Calculated Value form element to Update Forms and Details Pages to generate dynamic calculations as users interact with your forms. Previously, this feature was only available in Submission Forms. You may also check this link about calculated value: https://howto.caspio.com/datapages/datapage-components/calculated-values/

Also, you can Concantenate two fields in your Table using a Formula field:
