JS file does not work RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have added two new fields to the Account entity: triggerfield and calculatedfield. the triggerfield taks in a number multiplies it by 3.14 and stores it into the calculatedfield, at least it should. but for some reason it throws an unknow error.

    I have added the js file to crm libraries and the attributes names match between CRM and my js file. Can someone please tell me what i am doing wrong?

    here is the code:

    function UpdateField(){
    var trig = Xrm.Page.getAttribute("new_triggerfield");
    var dest = Xrm.Page.getAttribute("new_calculatedfield");

    // Test to make sure the trigger field has a value, this will return null if blank.
    if(trig.getValue() != null){
    var newValue = trig.getValue() * 3.14;

  • what is the data type you selected while creating these fields ?? what error you are getting ?? where are you calling this function ??

    try to use below

    var newValue = parseInt(trig.getValue()) * 3.14;

  • They are Floating Point Number numbers. 

    Here is the error message:

    There was an error with this field's customized event.

    Im calling it OnChange for triggerfield.

    var newValue = parseInt(trig.getValue()) * 3.14; This did not change anything, its still throwing the same message.

  • Have you tried debugging your JavaScript? You may be able to get detailed error message.

  • Hi,

    Can you try with:

    var newValue = parseFloat(trig.getValue())*3.14;

  • Running the debugger does not give me a different error, but when i evaluate it, i get this:

    TypeError: Cannot read property 'setSubmitMode' of null
    1. message"Cannot read property 'setSubmitMode' of null"
    2. stack(...)
    3. get stackfunction () { [native code] }
      1. argumentsnull
      2. callernull
      3. length0
      4. name""
      5. prototypeObject
      6. __proto__function Empty() {}
      7. <function scope>
    4. set stackfunction () { [native code] }
    5. __proto__Error

  • And no parseFloat does not make a diffrence.

  • The error message is self explanatory. The attribute "new_calculatedfield" does not exist. Make sure you have that attribute on the form.

  • As far as i can tell it is there. it has a type, its on the form for an input.....

    I reran and disabled the function and it gave me "refused to set unsafe header content-length" error from the global source code. 

    I assume this means i did not enable/define something right?

  • Can you try to use like below and see if you are still getting error, also assuming this is a readonly field correct ??


    Xrm.Page.getAttribute("new_calculatedfield").setSubmitMode("always"); }

  • first set the value then do force submit dest.setValue(newValue); Xrm.Page.getAttribute("new_calculatedfield").setSubmitMode("always");

  • set the value BEFORE setting the submit mode so that it is not null.

    also, to avoid goofy errors use the more desirable lambda expressed "UpdateField = function () {...}"
