Set text on the create screen for a custom field.


Dear @Alexey Matveev _Appfire_,

I have a question How do I set the pre-text already present in the custom field in the create screen. My code works best in edit and view screen but I'm unable to find the ID value for the create screen of the same .

As always thank you very much.

Like even if i put something like this in the behavior tab, still nothing happens, would you be able to assist me.

I just tried your code and it worked for me.

You can change the code like this

def apply = getFieldById("customfield_19896")

log.error("apply: " + apply)

if (! apply.getValue()) {
apply.setFormValue("Hi do not replace the revision value kindly update here")

Then open the necessary screen and have a look in the logs.

In my case the log looks like this:

/rest/scriptrunner/behaviours/latest/validatorsByPid.json [c.o.j.groovy.user.FieldBehaviours] initForm field ID: customfield_23100, value: null

You see "field ID" is not null, which means that the custom field was found, and the value is null, which means that your if condition will work.

I tried the code above in the create screen.

Sure, @Alexey Matveev _Appfire_  but after the using the code, I did have the edit screen not loading for ever, and I needed to refresh the page and edit which is not desirable at all.

Like if i remove the code from the behavior, the edit page loads fine. Is this fixable?

Hmmm. that is strange why the code makes your edit screen freeze. Kindly have a look in the logs and try look for errors. 

I will update you once i see any errors
