How to change date input form in Email?

How to change date input form in Email?

Hi, I use a calendar for date input on a form, but the problem is that the date is printed after the word: inputcal1: 23-8-2010 in the mail that's send. Would it be possible to write a line of code in the mail from UE4 to change the word "inputcal1" in "Date"? So I get the result in the mail that's send: Date: 23-8-2010 instead of inputcal1: 23-8-2010.
Thanks!

The value that you see for the label in the email that is sent is based on the name of the form element on the page, if you can you should try updating the name of the element with the value you would like to see for the label.

If this is not an option I can show you how to update this in the code itself if you post back with a copy of your webassist folder from your site and the page with the UE server behavior on it in a zip archive.

Hi Eric, I've also included a note with a mail example:

I don't think the page is functional, because I had to take some images out to upload, but you can still read the code.

This is what I get:
inputcal1: 27-9-2010

This is what I try to get:
Datum: 27-9-2010

Of course I did put a label in front of the code but I don't know how to change the input name in a way it changes the output.

Some help is much appreciated.

It looks like the input name is created dynamically so updating it in the form will not work. I have updated the Blank.php page in the webassist > email > templates folder to account for this. It should print out Datum instead of inputcal1. Please give this a try with the udpated page and let us know how it works for you.

Hi Eric, Thank you very much! It works.
Is it also possible that the label name get printed instead of the input name?

With the template that you have it will always use the name of the element for the label in the email message unless you do like I have done and use a strreplace() function to look for a particular value and replace it with another.

There is another way that you can edit the email message though. In DW you can drag and drop the form bindings on the page where you would like to see the data, and type in your own labels. To do this you need to go to the bindings tab and choose bindings > form data and select the form page, this will add in the form bindings from this page to the bindings panel. You can then drag and drop them onto the page where you would like to seem them. It would be a good idea to make a backup of the page before you edit it like this though just in case.
