Subject Re: Processing checkboxes from a form via flowscript

Thanks for this helpful info.  Do you have a snippet of Javascript code
whereby you process the values returned from the form; something

Hi Derek,

In my flowscript, I use following code to store form values in a HashMap :

function fill_formData(){
    formData = new java.util.HashMap();
    formData.put("typeNode", form.getChild("SO_ST_selection").getValue());
    formData.put("tyappli", form.getChild("procedure_type").getValue());
    formData.put("level1", form.getChild("Level1").getValue());
    formData.put("level2", form.getChild("Level2").getValue() );
    formData.put("textbox", form.getChild("textbox").getValue());

My form consist of two selection lists, two checkboxes (level 1 and 2) 
and a textbox. I test the value in Java but you may do it in flowscript 
(although I would not do that :) )
My checkboxes are boolean fields, it contains standard true/false values.

You may use the API for more information : 
Widget methods like getId and getFullName exist.

Hope this will help.
