Form with summarize and accept the terms

Form with summarize and accept the terms

I've made a form where the visitor should order tickets to a show and associated food packages.

The show will be shown three different days. Each day is a separate filedset, in the form.

Fieldset 1: The visitor asked first to fill in the traditional personal information.

Fieldset 2-4: Then there are three dates that the visitor can choose from. For each date, you can select the number of tickets to the show and the number of food packages. Of course you can order tickets for more than one day.

Fieldset 5: Then the visitor can choose the number of gold card.

Fieldset 6: Final field set contains a textarea.

So far there is no problem to create the form from the CSS Form Builder with authentication and everything.

But I want the visitor to have a summary of what it would cost. Either if the form can automatically summarize after the visitor selects number of tickets and food packages. Or if the visitor must click a button summarize.

In addition, the visitor must accept the terms.

When the visitor finally press the Order, the form is verify if you have summarized and accepted the terms, and filled in the personal details correctly.

The last part I do not know how to solve. Would of course like to be able to do this also from within CSS Form Builder.

dont use form builder for this.

use eCart to allow them to add the tickets and food packages to shopping cart, then checkout.

on the checkout, you can add any additional fields.

form builder s not the tool for calculating totals based on items the user wants to purchase. that is a function of eCart.

I understand that eCard is the best tool to do this in. Unfortunately I have not worked in the eCard yet. Furthermore, it seems nonetheless not as eCard really can do what I'm after.

I want the form to look like the pictures I sent in the first post.

I still think that one accept the terms feature should be standard in CSS Form Builder.

I've found a script that does what I'm looking for regarding calculation of the sum. This script also makes sure to double-check that the visitor has summarized. Otherwise, they see a dialog box. The problem is that this script appears to block CSS Form Builders validation.

The form is on the following page: operaform2013_SE2.php

Grateful for help!

trychanging the trigger for the validation:

if (isset($_POST["Opera_01_submit"]))  {

to any form post:


also in the server validation behavior, add a required validation for the checkbox.

for the checkbox, instead of using a session value:
<input name="Villkor_godkant" type="checkbox" id="Villkor_godkant" value="<?php echo $_SESSION['Villkor_godkant_opera']; ?>" />

use a hard coded value like 1:
<input name="Villkor_godkant" type="checkbox" id="Villkor_godkant" value="1" />

Still error

Unfortunately, it still does not work validation. I do not know what I will do. The form is sent after the sum is correct completed. But just before it is sent, I see the errors that validation shows. But still it will be sent the form.
