Same page action

Use the Same page action to initialize a value for a field or give a default value at runtime.

You can specify the target and source fields; the value from a source field or variable is populated at the target field as the default value.

  1. On the form modeling bar, click Actions and click New.

    The New action dialog box is displayed.

  2. On the Type list, select Same page.
  3. Change the default Name (SamePage1) to something meaningful.
  4. Optional. Enter a Description for the action.
  5. Optional. Select Multilingual to configure an unique action for each language separately. See Configure multilingual actions.
  6. To specify the item to change at runtime, do the following:
    1. Click
    2. On the Target list, select a form control, form variable, or global variable.
      • The Array variable type is restricted from mapping.
      • The Table control and columns cannot be mapped, but the column properties can be mapped.
      • The File upload control and its properties such as FileLocation and FileSize cannot be mapped in the Target fields as these properties are read-only.
    3. On the Source/Value list, select a form control, form variable or global variable, or enter a static value.
      Note The Table control cannot be mapped, but the column and column properties within the Table control can be mapped.
    4. Click Add.
  7. Click Save.

    The newly created action appears on the Actions list.

  8. Associate the action with the control to trigger this action. See Configure actions for form control events. Alternatively to call this action for a form event, associate the action with the form. See Associate an action with a form.
