How to run script on change only


Recommended Posts

The code below works fine when someone changes the default value from No to Yes in my 'DispoToday' field. My challenge is when the record already has a value of Yes and someone updates another field then the script will update the date again. I only want the date to write out the first time someone changes the 'DispoToday' from No to Yes.

<script type= "text/javascript">
function getT() {
  if(document.getElementById("EditRecordDispoToday").value == 'Yes') {
    document.getElementById("EditRecordTimeofView").value = '[@cb:Timestamp]';
  }
}

document.getElementById("caspioform").onsubmit = getT;
</script>

Try changing the last line of code. Use:

document.getElementById("EditRecordDispoToday").onchange = getT;

instead of:

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

Another option is to create a rule. The rule will be: when DispoToday field equal to Yes - make TimeofView field display only

Hope that helps :)

Cheers!

Thank you - changing the last line of the code has worked out. Much appreciated it.
