Auto Value Property

Is there any information on how to use the Auto Value Property that is found in Class > Attributes > Other Properties?

I would like to auto generate a value for the Code attribute in my class.

Have you found anything?

See the CMDBuild Administrator Manual 3.1 ENG paragraph 6.2.3:
Auto value: you can set the field value in the data Management Module according to other attributes of the form (through javascript code) CMDBuild

First of all, sorry for my bad english.
if you have a class called “CLASS1” with one attribute colled “Attribute1” you can assign auto assign value by the following javascript

document.getElementsByName(“Attribute1”)[0].value = “some value”

Hi Curcar,

do you tested your example for Auto Value that is in Class > Attributes > Other Properties ?
Can you send me your configuration for java script ?
What are values [0] and some value in your script - document.getElementsByName(“Attribute1”)[0].value = “some value”?

And do you tested the field View rules and Validation rules ?
Can you send me your configuration for java script too?

Thank you.

So does anyone have an actual answer for this? There is a grand total of 6 mentions over all the internet scrapped by google for “auto value” and cmdbuild.

The description in the manual is useless and this thread doesn’t contain an actual exemple.

Say I want a property of my card to be the concatenation of a property of the current card and the id of another card. What kind of javascript should I write? What’s the javascript API available?

Hi tecnoteca team, can you attach some example for javascript code.

For any one interested in this matter take a look at the topic “Calculate total number of X”
