How to timestamp a field based on conditions in other fields

Question

Hi there,

I would like to timestamp a field (Test_Completed), but only if it hasn't already been timestamped and only if a different field (Actual_result) has content.

I found a forum answer about timestamping a field, and have tried to modify it to include my conditions, but I am not too good with JavaScript!  This is what I've done, can anyone help??

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
 /* Declaration and initialization */
 Stamp = new Date();
 var v_TimeStamp;
 Hours = Stamp.getHours()
 Mins = Stamp.getMinutes();
  
   /* Construct the value of the v_TimeStamp variable in the format m/d/yyyy hh:mm */
 v_TimeStamp=('' + (Stamp.getMonth() + 1) +"/"+Stamp.getDate()+ "/"+Stamp.getFullYear() + ' ' + Hours + ":" + Mins);

 if ('[@field:Actual_result]' === 'input.length >1' && '[@field:Test_Completed]' === "") {
 document.getElementById("EditRecordTest_Completed").value=v_TimeStamp;
 }
</SCRIPT>

Many thanks

Nikki

Hi Nikki,

I edited your script a little bit, try inserting script in the footer:

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
window.onload=function myfunc(){
 Stamp = new Date();
 var v_TimeStamp;
 Hours = Stamp.getHours()
 Mins = Stamp.getMinutes();
  
   /* Construct the value of the v_TimeStamp variable in the format m/d/yyyy hh:mm */
  v_TimeStamp=('' + (Stamp.getMonth() + 1) +"/"+Stamp.getDate()+ "/"+Stamp.getFullYear() + ' ' + Hours + ":" + Mins);

 if ('[@field:Actual_result]'.length>1 && '[@field:Test_Completed]' === "") {
 document.getElementById("EditRecordTest_Completed").value=v_TimeStamp;
 }
}
</SCRIPT>

Both fields should be editable text fields on a datapage, if you need to hide a field, you may use display:none attribute, like explained here
