Combo box and document array to work with spawning

Combo box and document array to work with spawning

Combo box and document array to work with spawning

I have a form that I need to spawn pages. As it is now I have a document array and a combo box. When a selection is made in the combo box, the StateAmt field is populated from the array. This all works fine now, but I need to be able to make this coding work with spawned pages and need a little help.

This is my document javascript:
var gState = new Array //Create a reference to a new array
//load the array up with the amounts for each state
....and so on, I deleted most to make the script shorter here

this is my custom keystroke script for combo box 'gstate' (fyi, i added the state initials in the combo box options tab)
var stateamt = this.getField("G876.StateAmt")
if (event.changeEx in gState)
stateamt.value = gState[event.changeEx]

this works great for one page but when I add another page (spawned template) nothing happens after makeing a selection in the combo box. I'm sure I need to alter the script due to spawing changes the field names on each page, but I don't know how. I tried renaming the combo to gState1 and using this script (which does not work)

var fna = event.target.name.split(".");
var fp = fna.length>1?fna[0]+"."+fna[1]+".":"";
var stateamt = this.getField(fp + "G876_StateAmt").name // (this is G876.StateAmt on the original form)
var gst = this.getField(fp + "gState1").name //(this is gState on the original form)

if (event.changeEx in gst)
stateamt.value = gst[event.changeEx]

If anyone can help me with this, I would be so greatful.

RE: Combo box and document array to work with spawning

Are you using the rename parameter when you spawn the new page?
