Set behavior script to show 'linked issues' field only if 'resolution' is set to 'duplicate'



I tried to change the following behavior script that when in 'resolved' screen of a bug and choosing 'resolution' as 'duplicate' it will only then show the 'linked issues' field.


here is the original behavior code:

public void setPriorityJustification() {
    FormField priField = getFieldById ("priority")
    FormField priJustField = getFieldByName ("Priority Justification")
    String priority = (String) priField.getFormValue()
    if (priority == "1") { // 1 is Blocker
    else {

This widget could not be displayed.

I have found the solution

But now i see the 'linked issues' field for a second before it disappearing. any option not to show it at all until you choose 'Duplicate' ?

Here is the script:

FormField res = getFieldById(getFieldChanged())
FormField links = getFieldById("issuelinks")
if (res.getFormValue() == "3") { // duplicate
if (! links.getFormValue()) {
links.setHelpText("Please enter the duplicated issue.")
else {

I'm afraid not - the script executes after the browser renders the screen (it has to)
