Append parent name to the correct field


I’m trying to create a form that will append the parent’s first and last name in the correct field, which is the ddepartment field. I must be missing something or doing it wrong because it is not appending to the ddepartment field. Your help is much appreciated as I’m lost.


 //parent or guardian name// 
    var field = document.createElement("input"); = "ddepartment";
    	field.type = "hidden";
    	field.value = "parentLast" + "," + "parentFirst";

part of the form:

        <td><span class="formHelpNote"></span>First Name:</span></td>
        <td colspan="2">
        <span class="formHelpNote"><input name="parentFirst" value="" size="20" maxlength="40" onkeydown="return blockEnter(event)" onkeyup="return cUpper(this)">
        <td><span class="formHelpNote"></span>Last Name:</td>
        <td colspan="2">
        <span class="formHelpNote"><input name="parentLast" value="" size="40" maxlength="60" onkeydown="return blockEnter(event)" onkeyup="return cUpper(this)"></span>

I think its because ‘form’ isn’t defined anywhere in your code.

e.g. Find the element you want to append to.

 var form = document.getElementById("form");

Assumes html like this:

<form id="form"> etc..
