How to pass value to a form field from Javascript

I have an onClick event which opens up a form in a modal. I want to pre-set some of the values in that form from the onClick event. I’ve tried this…

dmx.parse('fullCalModal_add.frm_add_tripbit.inp_title.value("' + title + '")');

whith throws an error

dmx.parse('fullCalModal_add.frm_add_tripbit.inp_title.value = "' + title + '"');

which throws an error “parser.js:384 Error: Lexer Error: Unexpected token ‘=’ at column 49 in expression [fullCalModal_add.frm_add_tripbit.inp_title.value = “adfdaf”]”

To select a record and load it into an update form like this does work…

dmx.parse('"' + id + '")');

I’m assuming it’s just a syntax error but not sure what else to try.


Hi Heather,

I think you want setValue, instead of value:

dmx.parse('fullCalModal_add.frm_add_tripbit.inp_title.setValue("' + title + '")');
