Is there a way to script that? Andrea McCullion.

Well, not completely but you find it very difficult to find documentation on the syntax for loops like While, For, etc. Maybe you fall-back on JavaScript in those times but, on average, FormCalc scripts execute much faster than JavaScript scripts so why not harness that performance in our forms? Hopefully this illustrates the differences in the syntax indicated by the asterisk and question mark characters. Often times, in your scripts, you need to execute some statements a certain number of times or iterate through a collection.

Save Digg Del. A form can use both languages at the same time, but you cannot mix the two languages in one object event.
