I am writing a script to set a global variable with the contents of a field using the OnObjectEnter script trigger as I need to capture the current value in that field before it is changed.
There are four fields on the layout to which I want to apply this trigger. It works fine when the fields are formatted as drop-down lists, but not when they formatted as drop-down menus. I understand that the script trigger behaves differently depending on whether it is applied to a drop-down list (the script will run first) and a drop-down menu (the script runs after a value is selected). I believe I need to pass the value in the field as a parameter, Get(ScriptParameter) but I am damned if I can figure out how.
The drop-down list script is:
Set Variable [$$Content; Value: GetField (“MyActualFieldName”)]
So far for the drop-down menu version I have:
Set Variable [$$Content; Value: Get (ScriptParameter)]
I attach that to the field with the Script Parameter as follows:
I get a question mark returned as the data. Clearly not doing it right.
As mentioned I need to use this script on multiple fields so a single script for all would be good.
Many thanks as always.
