Redirection after submit by Listbox or Dropdown

Recommended Posts

I have this Submission DataPage with a dropdown/list box. After selecting a certain option, I wanted it to be redirected to another page. I followed this article: 

https://howto.caspio.com/tech-tips-and-articles/common-customizations/dynamic-redirects-after-form-submission/ 

However, the value I want to save is not the link for every option so I came up with this solution:

The script below will automatically redirect you to the new page:

<script type="text/javascript">

document.addEventListener('BeforeFormSubmit', function (event) {

switch (document.getElementById("Id name of your field").value){
  case 'ValueOfOption1':
    window.location="Link of the website";
    break;
  case 'ValueOfOption2':
    break;
  case 'ValueOfOption3':
    break;
 default:
    window.location="Link of your datapage";
}
});
</script>

 

This one here will remain on the same page and at the same time open a new tab for the link:

<script type="text/javascript">

document.addEventListener('BeforeFormSubmit', function (event) {

switch (document.getElementById("Id name of your field").value){
  case 'ValueOfOption1':
    window.open('Link of the website', '_blank');
    break;
  case 'ValueOfOption2':
    break;
  case 'ValueOfOption3':
    break;
 default:
    window.location="Link of your datapage";
}
});
</script>

 

I have found this script from this Forum Post:

No need for JS. Create a lookup table which has both values to be saved and links. On your form add a virtual field and select cascading as the form element. Source of this element should be the lookup. Parent field is value and filter by values to be saved and as the value select the link. This virtual field would be the link to be redirected to.
