MCPWA created the topic: Merge values and display results


from elements i want to calculate a merged variable to which i connect a value.
Let's say i have 3 elements, all picklists.
I want to merge the results from the 3 lists to 1 value.
So, on list 1 i selected A, on list 2 i selected Canada and on list 3 i selected Red.
The merged value should be ACanadaRed
The value ACanadaRed should represent a hardcoded value with the number "50".
On list 1 i selected A, on list 2 i selected Germany and on list 3 i selected Yellow.
The merged value should be AGermanyYellow. This value should represent an hardcoded value with number "60"

I want to display this value on the bottom of the form as soon as the value is picked in one of the lists.

I already figured out the merged value (ACanadaRed) but now i want to add this number to it and display it.

How can i achieve this?

Please send me the code that you have used to concatenate values from the 3 fields so I can tell you how to continue with the code.

Would you have predefined values for each combination? If that is the case you would have to add code similar to this:
var result = Number(0);
if( mergedvalue == "ACanadaRed") {
    result = 50;
else if(mergedvalue == "ACanadaBlue") {
    result = 60;

If points should be calculated for each field separately, for example, each country caries a certain amount of points, then the calculation should be done with if statements based on field by field. If that is the case, I will give you more instructions.
