Print a JS var value to a single line text box (Nintex Forms)

Hi All


I have what I hope is a very simple question (Nintex Forms). I want to update a single line text box with a string value when a button is clicked.



Button Client Click: updateBox()

Text box name(Client ID JavaScript variable name): riskBox


Custom JS: 

NWF$(document).ready(function() {

   var testValue = "A";


         function updateBox() {
         document.getElementById("riskBox").value = testValue;


The problem is that it isn't working. The text box on the form doesn't update with the string value in testValue, which should be "A".


The other thing i have noticed is tha the button click causes the form to reload. I have "cause validation turned off and  button action : JavaScript.

This script is a simple test for something much bigger.


Any help would be appreciated.


As a bonus: If anyone can suggest how to make that text box non user editable (only by the scrip), that would be fantastic. Can HTML DIV's be inserted into forms?


Thank you
