show/hide custom fields using behaviors from adaptivist scriptrunner not working

I am trying to use behaviors to show a hidden (hideable text field) called “Additional Info.”


This field is supposed to show if the reporter on the Create screen clicks “Yes” on the following radio buttons:


J.Crew Rewards


Unfortunately, it doesn’t work. It seems as if it should be pretty easy. Can someone please look at the below syntax and image attached and tell me where I screwed up?


Right now I’m just trying it with one of the radio buttons.


def jccc = getFieldByName("JCCC")

def jcrewrewards = getFieldByName("J.Crew Rewards")

def additional = getFieldByName("Additional Info.")


if (jccc.getValue() == "Yes")

Whenever you set a behaviour script on a field (like you did on the "Additional Info" field in your screenshot) that script will trigger every time that field changes its value. So instead you want it on the "JCCC" field so that when a user changes the value the script will run.


What you want to do is add this code in the initialiser section:

getFieldByName("Additional Info.").setHidden(true)

this will run one time when the screen is loaded and will initially hide your field.


Then configure the behaviour on the "JCCC" field and use the following script:

def jccc = getFieldById(fieldChanged)
def additionalInfo = getFieldByName("Additional Info.")

if (jccc.value == "Yes") {
