  • Passing dup info from 1 text box to another on same form

    I have a form that will be used for incoming calls to Customer Service. On the form are text boxes for Callers info and Senders Info. If the caller IS the sender, I want the data entered into Callers info to show up in the Senders text boxes as soon as the data is entered. I am trying to use onBlur to call a function that checks if the caller is the sender. I can't get the data to show up in the Senders text boxes. Here is the function I have been trying to use followed by the HTML portion of the code. I call the function after the phone number is entered. (This is my first request for help--Please let me know if I can give better info)

    function CallerIsSender() {
    var iCallerFirst = document.forma.callerfirstname.value;
    var iCallerLast = document.forma.callerlastname.value;
    if (document.forma.requestor(0).checked == true)
    document.forma.senderfirstname.value = document.forma.callerfirstname.value;

    document.forma.senderlastname.value = document.forma.callerlastname.value;
    }


    <table align="center" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2" width="700">
    <tr>
    <td align="center" bgcolor="##CCFFFF">Callers Phone#: <br>
    1 - (
    <small><input type="text" onKeyUp="return autoTab(this, 3, event);" name="areacode" size="4" maxlength="3"></small>) -
    <small><input type="text" onKeyUp="return autoTab(this, 3, event);" name="prefix" size="4" maxlength="3"></small> -
    <small><input type="text" onBlur="return autoTab(this, 4, event);return CallerIsSender;" name="phonefour" size="5" maxlength="4"></small>
    </td>
    </tr>
    </table>

    well, with only the code that i have to look at here, i can't be sure, but i think that at least part of your problem is this:

    if (document.form.requestor(0).checked == true)

    that should be

    if (document.form.requestor[0].checked == true)

    also, i'm thinking you want both of these to happen, if the caller is the sender:
    document.form.senderfirstname.value = document.forma.callerfirstname.value;
    document.forma.senderlastname.value = document.forma.callerlastname.value;

    but the second one looks like it will happen every time, because it's not inside of the if() statement. try writing it this way, instead:

    if (document.form.requestor[0].checked == true) {
    document.forma.senderfirstname.value = document.forma.callerfirstname.value;

    document.forma.senderlastname.value = document.forma.callerlastname.value;
    }

      I tried those changes, and the value is not passing to the Sender area. I thought there might be a way to "write" to the other text box "if condition is met"?

        This is a shortened version of what I'm using on an order form that auto-fills the shipping
        section after the billing info, if the user clicks on the radio button.

        Could this be adapted to your needs, with an onKeyUp function call via autotab?


        <HEAD>
        <SCRIPT language="JavaScript">
        <!-- Begin
        var ShipName = "";
        var ShipEmail = "";
        var ShipPhone = "";
        var ShipConfirm = 0;

        function InitSaveVariables(form) {
        ShipName = form.ShipName.value;
        ShipEmail = form.ShipEmail.value;
        ShipPhone = form.ShipPhone.value;
        ShipConfirm = form.ShipConfirm.checked;
        }

        function ShipToBillPerson(form) {
        if (form.copy.checked) {
        InitSaveVariables(form);
        form.ShipName.value = form.BillName.value;
        form.ShipEmail.value = form.BillEmail.value;
        form.ShipPhone.value = form.BillPhone.value;
        form.ShipConfirm.checked = form.ShipConfirm.checked;
        }
        else {
        form.ShipName.value = ShipName;
        form.ShipEmail.value = ShipEmail;
        form.ShipPhone.value = ShipPhone;
        form.ShipConfirm.checked = ShipConfirm;
        }
        }
        // End -->
        </script>
        </HEAD>


        <BODY>
        ....somewhere in the form

        <input type="checkbox" name="copy" onclick="javascript:ShipToBillPerson(this.form);" value="checkbox">

        </BODY>


        Since you are using autoTAB, could you not choose at the end of your phone number,
        instead of using onBlur, something like: onKeyUp="javascript:ShipToBillPerson(this.form);"

        ****This is just a sample of the onKeyDown/Up as far as how it jumps to the next field -- perhaps not necessary for point I'm trying to make, other than how to use onKeyUp*****

        <br>Credit Card Number:&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
        <input type="text" name="CC1" size="4" maxlength="4" onKeyDown="TabNext(this,'down',4)" onKeyUp="TabNext(this,'up',4,this.form.CC2)">&nbsp;-&nbsp;
        <input type="text" name="CC2" size="4" maxlength="4" onKeyDown="TabNext(this,'down',4)" onKeyUp="TabNext(this,'up',4,this.form.CC3)">&nbsp;-&nbsp;
