We cannot use InfoPath in SP 2013 on premise. So, we use the out of the box form and do all of our functions and presaveactions in jquery. We load the jquery file from a content editor web part to the .js file in our Site Assets library.
Question: Can we do this the same way with a Nintex form or is there some other method? I'd prefer to not have to put jquery in on a per field basis if possible.
Thanks for your help.
To expand on what Simon said, there is actually no need to import jQuery into Nintex Forms Classic as it's already packaged in.
Instead of calling it with the $ variable, you will need to use NWF$ instead
/* If I wanted to create a jQuery Object of all the elements with the class "myClass" */ NWF$(".myClass");
Using the out of the box form, we have one jquery file for newform.aspx and one for editform.aspx. Is this not necessary when connecting to a Nintex form? Also, it appears we have to rename everything to the "nf" version, etc. Correct? Thanks for your help.
var $ = $ || NWF$;
to the top of the file / code, which would allow you to maybe get away with not changing every single instance of the $ variable.
I hope that this helps.
