Javascript error when trying to add ShowIf function

Javascript error when trying to add ShowIf function

I just realized I posted this in the "validation toolkit" forum instead of here. However, the issue itself and the steps I have taken to try to resolve it are almost identical to this post:

showthread.php?p=98098#post98098

Here is my post from that forum:

-------------------------------

Helllo! I purchased Forms Toolkit yesterday and am experiencing the same error as the original poster whenever attempting to add a ShowIF behavior. The message I get is "While executing applyServerBehaviour in WAFV_ShowIF.htm, a JavaScript error occurred."

I have attempted all the fixes mentioned previously, including deleting the AppData cache file, uninstalling and reinstalling the Forms Toolkit extension, etc. I have also checked and double-checked all Javascript code. Nothing works.

I have zipped one of the pages which is experiencing the issue. Thanks, in advance, for your assistance.

the error is caused because you have multiple instances of the Server Validations server behavior. You should only have one instance of the server validations server behavior on the page. The one server behavior can be set to validate all of the form elements.

Select the validation type, click the lightning bolt next to server variable and select the form element, click the plus button to add it, then set up the next form element validation and click the plus button. Repeat those steps for all the form elements.

Hi Jason! Thanks for the reply.

I made another attempt at this, (starting from a pre-validation version of the page) being very careful to only have one instance of the Server Validations behavior. Unfortunately, I still get the ShowIf javascript error message. I'm attaching the new page in case you want to take a look at it.

Do you have any other ideas why this error would still be occurring?

Thanks for your assistance.

If you crate a blank php page and recreate your form with validation, do you get the same error message?

IT could be that one of the included php files on your page is causing a conflict.

Great idea! So, as it turns out, I don't get the javascript error when adding the "showIf" behavior to a "blank" PHP page containing only the form. (I've attached that page as "formTest.php".)

However, when I try taking out ALL php and javascript code on my original form page, I continue getting the "showIf" javascript error. I have also attached my "stripped down" communicationForm3.php page.

Everything else on the page is really standard stuff. I can't imagine any of it causing a conflict... but who knows. This is really strange.

Any other ideas? Thanks again!

the difference in the 2 pages is the doctype.


change the doctype from strict to transitional:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

Aha! We're getting somewhere! :-)

Changing the DOCTYPE eliminated the "showIf" javascript error. Thank you!!!

Now, for some reason, we're getting a ton of PHP errors on the page. You can see them here:

communicationForm3.php

I also get the same PHP errors on the "blank" test page, as well as our original form page. I have uploaded and re-uploaded the files in the "webassist" > "form_validations" folder. So the referenced files are there and in the right location. Are there any other reasons why these PHP errors could be showing up?

Thanks again!

these errors mean that there is a problem with the hosting server php. ini settings for the session.save_path.


you will need to contact the host to have them correct the session.save_path in the php.ini file.

Thanks Jason!

I've got it all working now. In case it helps anyone else, I'll post our solution.

As it turns out, it was easy as creating a folder in the root of the site called "sessiontmp" and adding the following line to the "php5.ini" file (may be "php.ini" for others):

session.save_path = /absolute/path/to/root/sessiontmp

Thankfully, everything is working perfectly now. I really appreciate the assistance in getting our problems resolved. As always, the support and community here is wonderful!

All the best!
