How do I populate a select field without a report or a plugin

    Posted 10-06-2017 10:25 AM

    Hi guys,

     

    I want to use a pure javascript implementation that would allow me to populate a select field with data.

    When I check the documentation, All I can find are get or select operations, not a set one. 

    To save time, these are the methods

     

    Is that possible? Has anyone done this? I'm currently using Service catalog 14.1 version, with the latest patch

    Hi Louis,

     

    Unfortunately, your examples did not help me, as one populates text fields and the other uses a report. I really would love something like ca_fdSetTextFieldValue, that you have shown in the lookup example, to select options.

     

     

    I need to populate/create the options of a select field using only javascript and no report/plugin. So i n essence I want to do the same thing that a report or a plugin/report does, but without using them.

     

    As I said, I have getters but no setters for this type of field. 

     

    But Thanks anyway

    Good Morning Marcel.

     

    Thanks for further explaining this.

    What data do you then want to populate the form-field with?

    A fixed value? Or a value 'to be retrieved'? From where? Another field?

     

    Please advise. Thanks in advance and kind regards, Louis.

    Hi Louis, I have a working javascript that do some ajax and gather info, in this case, I get some data from vmware rest api. But when I get one example working, I would extend to many use cases. Some customers don't like to have to use the java plugin, and these would be an alternative.

    Good Morning Marcel.

     

    Perhaps the following example helps you further?

    onSubmit: function(){
    if (_.request.status != 101 && _.request.status != 100

    {
        return true;
    }
    if(ca_fdGetSelectedRadio(ca_fd.formId,'user_selection_type') == 'newUser'){
        var kundnr  = ca_fdGetTextFieldValue(ca_fd.formId, 'cust_no');
        var kod2    = ca_fdGetSelectedOptionValues(ca_fd.formId,'sel_kod2')[0];
        var user    = ca_fdGetTextFieldValue(ca_fd.formId, 'best_for');
        var newUser = kundnr + ':' + user + ':' + kod2;

     


        ca_fdSetTextFieldValue(ca_fd.formId,'user_asset_name', newUser);

     

        ca_fdSetTextFieldValue(ca_fd.formId,'custom2_user', newUser);

     

    }

     

    Kind regards, Louis.
