I have created a couple of custom fields.
One is a TextCFType field, the other is a SelectCFType.
These are both rendered on create new issue page.
Each time the TextCFType field value changes due to user input, I would like to pass the new value at runtime into a method located in a java class. Lets call this: Example.java. This method will then use the value typed into the TextCFType field to query an external database. Once the results have been returned from this query I would like to populate the SelectCFType with these options.
When new user input is created, I would like to completely overwrite the options within the SelectCFType.
So far I create a velocity variable at initialization called: $example.
This variable contains an instance of my Example class with several methods.
var e = document.getElementById("$customField.id");
var text = e.options[e.selectedIndex].text;
When this method is called nothing happens. It does not seem as though I am able to pass the value of "text" to my method.
I have tried several different options including using a one of the setter methods of my Example class to change the 'value' attribute of the class with an external listener listening for changes in this variable. Nothing seems to work.
Could someone please provide some guidance (or even better... a solution) on how this is achievable.
