Error in onLoad object

Error in onLoad object

Error in onLoad object

Good day everyone.

Recently a .nsf file was updated. This file is used to load values for a form. The drop-down field doesn’t show the updated version of the values. The onLoad object shows the following:

if (valueElement("DirName")!="—Please Select--"){
getElement("DirCode").value = valueElement("DirName").substring(0,2);
ajax_getFrmElement(valueElement("DBName"),"MgrAdmin", valueElement("DirCode"),"MgrAdminId");
ajax_getFrmElement(valueElement("DBName"),"AssignedDirName", valueElement("DirCode"),"Director");
ajax_getFrmElement(valueElement("DBName"),"AssignedDirId", valueElement("DirCode"),"DirectorId");

When loaded, the form sends the message “Could not find a field with 'Id' or 'Name' DirectorId“

The application has not been modified in a while and the change in the .nsf file was expected to be transparent to it.

My knowledge of java and Lotus Notes is limited.

I appreciate your recommendations.

Stay safe.

RE: Error in onLoad object

Hi there,

Always difficult to do remote debugging without the entire code base, but it looks to me as if the code is trying to get elements from a parameter document, and something doesn't click any more.
I'm more of a LotusScript guy, but I'm willing to try and help you. However, your snippet is not enough for me to check on what's going on. Would it be possible for you to paste the entire OnLoad code so I can review what is actually happening ?


I've got nothing to hide, and I demand that you justify what right you have to ask.
