Updating Hidden Fields With OnClick JavaScript Button

I'm trying to get a custom activity button to work that will toggle a checkbox field on the contact. It works fine when the field is visible, but fails when I hide the field (needs to be hidden). 

Error I'm getting is:

"A problem with the OnClick JavaScript for this button or link was encountered:

Unexpected token =="
 
{!REQUIRESCRIPT("/soap/ajax/41.0/connection.js")} 

if({!Contact.Onboarding_Survey_Trigger__c} == false) 
{ 
var c = new sforce.SObject("Contact"); 
c.id = "{!Contact.Id}"; 
c.Onboarding_Survey_Trigger__c = true; 
result = sforce.connection.update([c]); 
if ( result[0].getBoolean( "Email Scheduled!" ) ) 
{ 
window.location.reload(); 
} 
else 
{ 
alert( "failed"); 
} 
} 
else 
{ 
var c = new sforce.SObject("Contact"); 
c.id = "{!Contact.Id}"; 
c.Onboarding_Survey_Trigger__c = false; 
result = sforce.connection.update([c]); 
if ( result[0].getBoolean( "Email Scheduled!" ) ) 
{ 
window.location.reload(); 
} 
else 
{ 
alert( "failed"); 
} 
}

Hi Ti,

Greetings to you!

You need to use if ( result[0].getBoolean( "success" ) ) 
I have checked in my org after hiding checkbox field and it is working fine.

Try this:
{!REQUIRESCRIPT("/soap/ajax/41.0/connection.js")} 

if({!Contact.Onboarding_Survey_Trigger__c} == false) 
{ 
var c = new sforce.SObject("Contact"); 
c.id = "{!Contact.Id}"; 
c.Onboarding_Survey_Trigger__c = true; 
result = sforce.connection.update([c]); 
if ( result[0].getBoolean( "success" ) ) 
{ 
window.location.reload(); 
} 
else 
{ 
alert( "failed"); 
} 
} 
else 
{ 
var c = new sforce.SObject("Contact"); 
c.id = "{!Contact.Id}"; 
c.Onboarding_Survey_Trigger__c = false; 
result = sforce.connection.update([c]); 
if ( result[0].getBoolean( "success" ) ) 
{ 
window.location.reload(); 
} 
else 
{ 
alert( "failed"); 
} 
}

I hope it helps you.

Still getting the same error message.

It will work when the fields are exposed, but fail when theya re hidden.
