Issues with Check Boxes

Thread began 12/15/2010 1:38 pm by mrobben375515 | Last modified 12/15/2010 2:05 pm by Jason Byrnes | 766 views | 1 replies |


Issues with Check Boxes

I'm creating a form with two checkboxes. One of them is required and the other one is not. However, both have to be checked before the form will submit. Why is that? Also, when the form is submit it gives the "?invalid=true" extension which probably has to do with my insert record behavior. I'm going to have the page only viewable to logged in members, which I know how to do using the security assist page rules. And when they access the page I want to pull their information using a Recordset and submit their name, email, etc. along with their contest entry into a new database table. I've attached the php doc, and here's the url upload_your_pet_contest_photo.php. Any pointers are appreciated. Thanks

1) You have 2 server validations server behaviors on the page.

the first one:


if (isset($_POST["Default_submit"]))  {
$WAFV_Redirect "upload_your_pet_contest_photo.php?invalid=true";
$_SESSION['WAVT_uploadyourpetphoto_Errors'] = "";
  if (
$WAFV_Redirect == "")  {
$WAFV_Redirect $_SERVER["PHP_SELF"];
$WAFV_Errors "";
$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateRQ((isset($_POST["fieldset_group_Copyright_Accept_Terms"])?$_POST["fieldset_group_Copyright_Accept_Terms"]:"") . "",true,1);
$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateRQ((isset($_POST["fieldset_group_Upload_Your_Image"])?$_POST["fieldset_group_Upload_Your_Image"]:"") . "",true,2);

  if (
$WAFV_Errors != "")  {

is validating a form element that doers not exist:

it looks like you can delete that code from lines 15 - 30.

2) Both check boxes have spry validation applied. line 547 - 548:
var fieldset_group_Copyright_Accept_Terms_Spry = new Spry.Widget.ValidationCheckbox("fieldset_group_Copyright_Accept_Terms_Spry",{additionalError: 'fieldset_group_Error_2', validateOn:["blur"]});
var fieldset_group_Receive_emails_Spry = new Spry.Widget.ValidationCheckbox("fieldset_group_Receive_emails_Spry",{additionalError: 'fieldset_group_Error_2', validateOn:["blur"]});

delete the line for the checkbox you do not want to validate.
