Accessing the UI Macro - List field in client script on the standard change record producer / must contain > 2 changes


(note the out of the box field has been re-labelled slightly in this example)

within the UI macro:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<j:jelly trim="false" xmlns:j="jelly:core" xmlns:g="glide" xmlns:j2="null" xmlns:g2="null">
<j:set var="jvar_html_identifier" value="std_change_proposal.change_requests"/>

-->  g_form.getValue('std_change_proposal.change_requests'); will work in the onsubmit client script

example to prevent submission if the field contains less than 3 changes

function onSubmit() { var field_name = 'std_change_proposal.change_requests'; var msg = getMessage('chg.std_chg_proposal'); var sample_chg_reqs_field = g_form.getValue(field_name); if ((sample_chg_reqs_field.match(/,/g) || []).length < 2) { g_form.addErrorMessage(msg); alert(msg); g_form.hideFieldMsg(field_name); g_form.showFieldMsg(field_name, msg, 'error', true); return false; } else { g_form.hideFieldMsg(field_name); } }

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
