How to access to a control connected to a lotus field using javascript

In this post I test how to access via javascript to the following controls connected to a lotus field:

  • Edit Box: a control for entering a single line of data
  • Hidden Input: a control for hiding data to the user

A Hidden Input control is not such as an Edit Box control with “Visible” unchecked (or with property rendered set to False) because an invisible Edit Box control is not rendered in the page, not even in the html code with an attribute type=”hidden”.

Attaching shared javascript and css code in a lotus form

The javascript and css code used in a lotus form can also be useful in other forms, and so it is best to save it only one time in a shared place.
The pages works well for this purpose and in this post I explain how to create page containing JavaScript code and css and attach it to a form.
