Control HS if if then else?

Post by doug » Fri Aug 19, 2011 10:49 pm

Can you provide an example of how to control HS actions with the execution of JavaScript? I want to test the attributes of a field (or its absence) and return true or false and have HS do alternative HS actions.

Here you go. There is also a while loop sample.

Hope it helped.

Yes, thanks. I see the trick of negation to simulate "else" (taking caution that "then" doesn't change the condition). Your example also shows that the tag for scripts are truly comments and not function names -there are 2 else's and 2 initialize's.
