Hello I really need help with this... , I am using Sharepoint 2007.

I have the 'collect data from user' action in a workflow - which generates a custom form within the workflow folder.

The form uses a DataFormWebPart which contains xsl stylesheet. It has a 'Complete Task' button as below:

<td><input type="button" name="btnMarkSubmited" value="Complete Task" onclick="javascript: {ddwrt:GenFireServerEvent(concat('__update;__workflowTaskComplete={',ddwrt:EcmaScriptEncode(string($Id)),'*',ddwrt:EcmaScriptEncode($ListName),'};__commit;__redirectsource;__redirectToList={',ddwrt:EcmaScriptEncode($ListName),'};'))}"></input></td>

I need to add javascript within the DataFormWebPart so I can update another form field when the user clicks the 'Complete Task' button.

I have tried adding a content editor webpart and used jquery to update a a form field value when the button is clicked as such

$(document).ready(function (){
$("input[type=button][value='Complete Task']").click(function(){
$("input[type=checkbox]").attr("checked", true);
});

This changes the form field succesfully but does not save to the list when the form submits. I have also tried to call a javascript function from within the onclick but it does not find the function when placed in the content editor webpart (or within placeholdermain template).

Please could someone give me any ideas on this? I have pasted the form's DataFormWebPart below for reference:

Many Thanks!

Would I be right in thinking that the Workflow action triggered by the button's OnClick is triggered before your jQuery click event? This would mean the form data is captured and the list updated before the jQuery updates your form field...

In which case, try updating the form field from within the Workflow itself rather than the jQuery?

Thanks James you are right the sharepoint javascript runs before my jquery script. Unfortunatley I am unable to update in the workflow (in SPD) because the field I am copying is a hidden one (Task - Outcome) and I cannot access it to copy it.... –  nav Jun 24 '10 at 12:46
    
Can I ask how the field is "Hidden"? I didn't realise that some fields wouldn't show up in SPD's Workflow editor. –  James Love Jun 26 '10 at 11:01
