ml44230 created the topic: use variable in a field name

Hello,
In my form, I have 20 test fields named P1, P2, P3, ... P20
In order to test the value of each field, may I concatenate thhe letter "P" with the variable I on a loop to do something like that in an init sctpt:
var nbr=0;
for ( var I=1; I<=20; I++)
{ if (ff_getElementByName(' "P"+I ').value !="")
{nbr ++; }
}

Thank you in advance for your response.
Best regards

Hello,

Yes, you can concatenate the letter "P" with the variable I on a loop.

Please try using the following code:
var nbr=0;
for ( var I=1; I<=20; I++){ 
    if( ff_getElementByName("P"+l).value !="") {
        nbr++;
        }
}

Let me know whether this worked as you wanted.

Regards,

Mihaela
