Where can I learn about using custom javascript in a form?

Jump to solution

I'm not allowed to do anything but use custom javascript to create a switch calculated value. I am new to all of this. Where can I learn what NWF$ is? Where can I learn the correct ways to access the data and to set values? I want this to run constantly or when a field is updated. Where can I learn how to achieve these goals?

Thank you

Hello Michael Ellis​ -

I would recommend that you check out https://www.codecademy.com/learn/javascript to get the basics or even http://www.w3schools.com/Js/

Once you have a grasp on it, you can start to search for specific function examples and how to get them working to accomplish what you needed. I would also check out the community here as there are a lot of examples of what other users did.

Hope this helps!

Yes, but code academy and w3schools don't explain that nintex is using jQuery. I kind of figured it all out thanks to w3schools but I had to learn what jQuery was first. I still can't find an answer for why I need NWF before my $. and I'm still not sure if there are better ways to do what I already did.

You can generally find some good content on the web, especially if you type the specific functionality you are trying to achieve e.g. custom validation, prepopulate fields etc.
