Escribir Casting en Apps Script

First time on StackOverFlow!

I am working on building an app that takes in a value through a UI Form TextBox. Once that form is submitted it calls a method that then appends a "/" to the value. The problem is that .append() is not available, because getElementById() returns a GenericWidget object and thus cannot be operated on as if it were a string. I have tried type casting it use .toString() in the var userinput = app.getElementById('input').toString; call and afterward using userinput = userinput.toString.

I have been working with Apps Script for about a month and a few days now and I think that casting to a different type other than GenericWidget would be helpful for anyone who wants to modify a value in a type specific way after passing the value to another method.

I have also done a good bit of research trying to find a solutiong for my problem but like a couple times in the past working with Apps Script I find that since it is a younger language there isn't as much helpful information as there is with languages like Javascript, HTML, and XML. Any help is appreciated.

You have to get the textBox value using e.parameter.textBoxName an then re-assign a value to the textBox. A short example will be more explicit

function doGet(){
 var app = UiApp.createApplication();
 var textbox = app.createTextBox().setName('txt').setId('txt')
// add other elements, handlers, callBackElements, etc...
}

function changetext(e){
var app = UiApp.getActiveApplication();
var textBoxValue = e.parameter.txt ; // get the value in the text box
var txtBoxWidget = app.getElementById('txt') ; get the widget by its ID
txtBoxWidget.setText(textBoxValue+'/'):// assign the modified value
return app ;// update the UI with new value
}

Awesome. I didn't think to pull the parameter directly from the box. I've just been dealing with passing things by ElementById(). Thanks a ton! - Jared Garcia
