Problem clearing field in onchange client script (service portal friendly); and check if val is a number

 this approach seemed to work...where the onchange is fired on a field entitled costs_purchase_order and this itself needs to clear if not a number...

function onChange(control, oldValue, newValue, isLoading) { if (isLoading) { return; }
g_form.setMandatory('procontract_ref', false); if (newValue == '') { g_form.clearValue('costs_purchase_order'); return; } if (isNaN(newValue)) { var sMsg = "Please enter the cost as a number"; g_form.clearValue('costs_purchase_order'); try { if (typeof spModal != 'undefined') { spModal.alert(sMsg); } else { var gm = new GlideModal(); gm.setTitle("Warning"); gm.renderWithContent(sMsg); bAttachMissing = true; } } catch (ex) { alert('MTH Check Cost: Error::' + ex); } } else { var sNumVal = parseInt(newValue); if (sNumVal >= 10000) { g_form.setMandatory('procontract_ref', true); } } }

GlideRecord setValue

setValue(String name, Object value) Sets the specified field to the specified value. Normally a script would do a direct assignment, for example,  gr.category = value . However, if in a script the element name is a variable, then  gr.setValue(elementName, value)  can be used. When setting a value, ensure the data type of the field matches the data type of the value you enter. This method cannot be used on journal fields. If the value parameter is null, the record is not updated, and an error is not thrown!/api_doc?v=madrid&id=r_GlideRecord-setValue_String_Object
