Preventing certain cities/countries from ordering

Preventing certain cities/countries from ordering

Hi there,

Is there a way thru PowerStore (2) to prevent certain cities/states/countries from placing orders? Maybe using a zip code or something similar to block someone from finalizing an order? I know it's a strange request but something a client would like to do.

Thx

There is no built in functionality for this, but if you had Validation Toolkit or Form Builder, you can apply validation to check if the user has entered these cities, countries or states and prevent the order from going through.

As a matter of fact, I have Validation toolkit, is it pretty easy to do? I haven't used it in a while, is there a tutorial or something to guide me through the process?

What you can do is to apply client side validations to the different fields. You would want to add Restrict Content validation to it. The interface for adding the Restrict Content validation should be pretty easy to figure out.

Thanks for the info, it was quite easy to do but when I tested it out, nothing happened, the cities & zip codes don't show any errors while ordering and I am still able to go through the whole ordering precess. I added the Restrict Content behavior on the checkout.php page and chose onBlur. Is there something I'm missing?

Are you setting it up using client validation or server validation? I would recommend using the any form post as the trigger so that the values of the form will have been posted and can be validated.

I've set it up as client validation.

Forgive me but I'm not sure how to do it, but how would I go about using the any form post as the trigger?

Ah, sorry, that was only for if you were using Server Validations.

If you are applying the client validations through the behavior panel, you will have to add the Show Validation Errors at the end or the errors won't be displayed and the page will be submitted even with the errors.

Still not showing up...

Here's what I have on the checkout page (this is for the city entry on the form for the checkout page):

<span id="sprytextfield11" onfocus="WAAlertErrors('','We do not to ship to this region',true,false,false);return document.MM_returnValue">
<input name="city" type="text" id="city" onblur="if (document.getElementById('cityServerValidation')) document.getElementById('cityServerValidation').style.display='none';WAValidateRT(document.forms[1].city,document.forms[1].city.value,'- We do not ship to this region',' Jacksonville |, Tallahassee |, Indianapolis |, Cincinnati |, Memphis |',document.forms[1].city,0,true)" value="<?php echo((isset($_GET['valid']))?(ValidatedField("confirm","city")):$row_WAATKusers['UserCity']); ?>" />
<span class="textfieldRequiredMsg">Please enter the city where your statement is sent.</span></span>

I chose "onBlur" to restrict content and "onFocus" to show validation errors. I'm not sure exactly how to do this correctly, as this obviously isn't set up correctly. Could you possibly give a step-by-step guide to doing this?

If you put the WAAlertErrors call on the onfocus, the call will be made before the onblur of the form elements. You would want to put it in one of the events that happens after the onblur of the form element. You could even put the WAAlertErrors call right after the validation calls like this:

<input name="city" type="text" id="city" onblur="if (document.getElementById('cityServerValidation')) document.getElementById('cityServerValidation').st yle.display='none';WAValidateRT(document.forms[1].city,document.forms[1].city.value,'- We do not ship to this region',' Jacksonville |, Tallahassee |, Indianapolis |, Cincinnati |, Memphis |',document.forms[1].city,0,true)" value="<?php echo((isset($_GET['valid']))?(ValidatedField("confirm","city")):$row_WAATKus ers['UserCity']);WAAlertErrors('','We do not to ship to this region',true,false,false); ?>" />
