Form register

Scripts also allow you to use the form register in your calculations.

Imagine a report form that has three fields: Year, Number and Document (which is used to attach the report file). The script below allows you to do a duplicate check. It accesses data from the form register and Pyrus lets you know if the report has been released before.

form.onChange(['Year', 'Report No.'])
    .validateAsync('Report No.', async state => {
        const [year, num] = state.changes;

        if (year.text && num.text) {
            const duplicates = await form.fetchSelfRegister(f => f.fieldEquals('Year', year).fieldEquals('Report No.', num), []);
            const firstDuplicate = duplicates.tasks[0];
            if (firstDuplicate)
                return {errorMessage: `Report has already been released`};

        return null;

If we now try to fill out the form with the data from an existing report, we’ll see an error message and a link to the existing report.
