Working with the Event Model
model stores object event properties. These properties are useful
if you want to access values that are otherwise out of the scope
of the events listed in the Show list within the Script Editor.
The event model controls the changes in a form that occur before,
during, and after actions take place. These actions include dynamic
form events, such as the point when the data and form design are
merged but before pagination is applied, and also interactive form
events, such as when a user updates the value of a field.
Event model properties and methods
event object properties and methods, you can retrieve information and
execute actions that otherwise are not accessible through calculations
and scripts. For example, you can retrieve the full value of a field
that otherwise would have part of the data stripped out because
it is too long or otherwise invalid. Retrieving the full value of
a field is useful in situations where you have to do extensive error
