Adding action rule in nintex form

Jump to solution

Hi,

In InfoPath I used to work with action rule to set field values. I started working with Nintex forms and I can only see Formatting and validation rules. is it a separate function in nintex. I am using trial version and I would think it is a full version and not standard.

is this feature available in nintex ?, if so can some one guide me ?

Regards

Kannan

What exactly are you trying to achieve? There are no action rules in Nintex Forms but I think there are probably alternative ways to implement the functionality you like to have ;-)

Hi Kannan Ahammed‌ - 

Are you saying, for example, "If field txtAnimal is equal to Horse, then set field txtAnimalClass to Mammal; if field txtAnimal is equal to Frog then set field txtAnimalClass to Amphibian"?

You can do this by creating a rule on the txtAnimalClass to say "if txtAnimal is Horse, then mammal". 

I am sure there are other ways to do this, let me know if this is on the right path though.

Cheers,

Rhia

Hi Rhina,

Assuming txtanimal class is a field in the list , and in nintex forms there are two rules for a field formatting and validation. Which one should I chose ? I thought formatting is for formatting the text and validation is for validating the text ?

Hello,

The most robust way of setting of field values is done by way of Javascript at the moment.  There was word that some sort of 'rules' like mechanism would be introduced in the product that would allow for the 'automated' setting of fields but it has yet to be fully introduced.   

Thanks,

Mike

Here is what you'll need:  

That'll give you an idea of how to go about it, read the comments in that doc also as they have some examples.   I'd recommend being familiar with Javascript first though otherwise it can be a bit much.

Thanks,

Mike

It has been under review for nearly a year now. It would be helpful if you could add your feedback to help push this along..
