<readonly, non-null> somExpression :string

SOM Expression of the Node.

In Adaptive Forms SOM is a model to access fields and Panels. The SOM Expression provides easy access to the Fields and Objects through a straightforward syntax

Type:
  • string
Since:
  • 6.0
Inherited From:
Example
Considering the heirarchy,
-- guide
  -- panel1
  ---- field2
  ---- panel2
  ------ field3
the som Expression of field3 will be guide[0].panel1[0].panel2[0].field3[0]. The 0 here represents
the same name sibling index of that particular item in its parent. If panel2 has an additional child field3 as
  ---- panel2
  ------- field3
  ------- field3
The second field3 would have the somExpression guide[0].panel1[0].panel2[0].field3[1]

<readonly, nullable> nonLocalizedTitle :string

Inherited From:

<readonly, non-null> index :number

Index of the Node among its siblings having the same name as itself

Every node in the Adaptive Form field has an index depending on the number of same named siblings that the node has before it. If the element has no same named sibling its index will always be 0.

Methods


validate(errorList)

Validate the Field and return the result of those validations.

In Adaptive Form Fields can have three types of validations

  • Mandatory (Field is required)
  • Pattern Validation (value entered must match a pattern)
  • Script Validation (custom scripts that return a boolean value)

This API executes all three types of validation in this order and if any of it fails, it returns false. If all the three pass, then it returns true.

The failure rules for these validations are defined as

  • Mandatory validations fail if the Field is mandatory and its value is null.
  • Script Validations fail if a validate Expression is defined and the return value of the expression is not true.
  • Pattern Validations fail if the field has a validate Pattern and value entered doesn't match that pattern.

These validations are run automatically in the following two cases

  • when the value of this field is changed or
  • user submits the Form
Parameters:
Name Type Description
errorList Array.<Field~ValidationError>

The array will be filled with the ValidationError object if the validations on the field fail.

Since:
  • 6.0

Returns:

true if all the validations in the Field passes, false otherwise
