Spinner fields on forms are a helpful way to set numeric values in a service offering. However, you may wish to set defaults dynamically, based on other selections.

Is it possible to set a spinner field dynamic, the same way you set a text field for example (ca_fdSetTextFieldValue(formId, _id, value))?


Release: CASVCT99000-12.9-Service Catalog


Text fields have the following specific Javascript methods over and above the General ones:

ca_fdGetTextFieldValue(formId, _id)

Returns the current value of the text field.

ca_fdSetTextFieldValue(formId, _id, value)

Sets text of text field.

However, they they are not just to be used for fields in the “Text Field” – they also apply for text areas, lookup, label, slider and spinner fields, in just the same way.
