Required Field based on user Selection

rss

Posted by coresoul - Feb 26 ’15 at 12:56

i have a checkbox filed called travelRequired (Yes/No) and a number field called TravelPercentage. Initially i want to hide TravelPercentage. If user selects travelRequired as Yes, i want to show TravelPercentage and make this field required. if user unselect the checkbox, it should clear the TravelPercentage field and hide that field.

    Here, checktype is a dropdown field. everything works except clearing the AFH_x0020_Replacement_x0020_Reas field when value in dropdown changed. Am i doing something wrong.

    function checktype(){

    if(fd.field('AFH_x0020_Type').value()=='Replacement'){

    $('.replacementreason').show();

    }

    else{

    fd.field('AFH_x0020_Replacement_x0020_Reas').value('');

    $('.replacementreason').hide();

    }

    }

    fd.field('AFH_x0020_Type').change(checktype);

     

    checktype();

    [#3]: This code works well for me:

    fd.field('AFH_x0020_Replacement_x0020_Reas').value('');

    Please, make sure that you use the correct internal name of the field and that the field type is Choice (DropDown).
