Hi everyone,

I use EditNewWithScript with an extraparam _reference
(which is 14 and is equal to the value from the select input i want to target)

But my field reference gets filled with the value "14" and doesn't fetch the
select value.

Is there a simple solution to this problem or will it need me
to edit the editView.js and manipulate the values with jQuery?

In the web application the reference handling is a bit special because we have to distinguish the case of an already generated reference - which is a text value that can be modified by the user if the field REFFIXED is 0 - and the case of a reference to be generated - which is an integer value corresponding to the list of references.

When you pick a reference in the drop-down list of references, the web page sends a CEB_REFERENCE value to the back-end. This value gets copied to the REFERENCE field, and the REFFIXED value is put to 2 to indicate that the reference field contains the ID of the reference to be generated.

You can mimic this behavior during the creation of the entity. Just add _reference=14&_reffixed=2 to your initialisation URL.

If you're using EditNewWithScript, you can set the Reference in the script.
Simply use efficy.setReference(editHandle, referenceID).

Hello Robert,
Can we really do that ?

With an EditNewWithScript we cannot set the reference because at the end of the script, we don't commit.

Hello Everyone,

We already tried to use the "Efficy.setReference". But because we don't commit, this is the result :

The reference is not pre-selected.
