Weird behavior

Hello everyone,

I'm having this weird behavior and I'm not sure if it's me not misunderstanding variables or it's an xpage bug.

I have a document with a field called "hours" and it has a value of 8.

Here is my simplified code . 

var xHrs = doc.getItemValueDouble('hours');
println (xHrs);  // at this point, hours is 8
doc.replaceItemValue('hours', 0);
return xHrs;  // returns 0;

 

Why is xHrs back to 0 when I replace the document value to 0?  How do I break the link?

 

Thanks in advance for the help :)

R.

Fixed.

Somewhere lost in the code, the function was being called twice.
