Using SetValue() for java script value

Hi Team,

I would like to set a value in my merge field dynamically could you please provide me some assistance for the same.

For example,

 var x =1; 

x is my dynamic value and would like to set its value in my merge field I am being able to set static value as below:
 [%SetValue(mymergefield, 1) %] 

However would like to set value dynamically as below:
 [%SetValue(mymergefield, x) %]

You could set a variable and use SetValue within some Perl script.  Something like this where the variable x is being set to the value of Q1:

[% Begin Unverified Perl
my $x = GETVALUE("Q1")
{SETVALUE("mymergefield", $x))}
End Unverified %]

Thanks Jay!

However my requirement is slightly different, the solution which you shared will only work within the scope of unverified perl. What I am loking for is way to transfer values from javascript/jquery variable which is changing on existing page and once respondent submit the page I would like to send the last value to database so that I may use it on net page of the link.

Hope i am being able to share my concern!

Looking forward for your views below is the code

var x= 0;
x = $('this').val();

[%SetValue(mymergefield, x) %]

Unfortunately I'm not sure if the Set Value command can be incorporated into javascript.  You may want to check with Support.
