couple of 'issues' with a form

Hey Jason

Have got a pretty lengthy form which is located here: http://www.cyoungopticians.co.uk/questionnaire.php?

Have 4 questions/issues I am facing:

1. there are 2 datepickers - one under Date of Birth and the other under date and time of assessment. For some reason, that I cant work out, the datepicker isnt showing when the field is clicked on.

2. The last field in the form (which is a yes/no radio) is required, but I seem to have lost the error text and focus?

3. in the sent email, is there any way to show the radio groups regardless of whether or not the user has inout a yes or no answer? or does it need to have an answer to achieve this?

4. is there a tutorial anywhere for retrospectively making a field required?

Have attached the file in case you needed it.

Many thanks

Jamie

1) there are a number of coding issues on this page that are causing the javascript to fail, for example:

<link rel="shortcut icon" href=favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
should be:
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />


<div class="fieldGrou;"> <span id="DOB_Spry"> <span>

should be:
<div class="fieldGroup"> <span id="DOB_Spry"> <span>


you have a number of elements that have commas in the name, this is not valid:
<input type="radio" name="Eyes_sting,_burn_or_sore_after_reading_for_a_while" id="Eyes_sting,_burn_or_sore_after_reading_for_a_while__1" value="Yes" class="formRadioField_Standard" tabindex="42">

form element names can contain only letters and numbers, those are jsut a few examples, i found that if i stipped all of the code from your page and had only the date picker elements in place, they started working, so there is a quite a bit of on this page that is badly formated and causing the problem.

2) Most likely a result of the coding issues from 1

3) It needs to have an answer to achieve this, the best bet is to add a Yes, No, NA option to each radio group and make NA selected by default.

4) Edit the server validation server behavior to add additional validations to the form.

thanks Jason

Have spent ages troubleshooting this form and now have got the validations working and the datepicker but I havent got the success page sorted.

Basically the success content is held in the same page as the form itself and have put in

php:
<?php if(isset($_SESSION["waue_VT_1_Status"]) && $_SESSION["waue_VT_1_Status"] == "Success") { ?>


//   Then the form goes here   //

<?php ?>
      <?php //var_dump($_SESSION); ?>
      <?php if(isset($_SESSION['waue_VT_1_Status'])) unset($_SESSION['waue_VT_1_Status']); ?>



I've obviously got a reference point wrong but not sure what I should be looking at....

Have attached the page file should you need it

On this same form, I have 2 datepickers. One is for current dates and one is for date of birth.

How would I go about changing the available years for the date of birth datepicker?

Cheers

you would need to edit the date picker code, and add a yearRange argument:


the code for the DOB element is:

$(function(){
$('#DOB').datepicker({
changeMonth: true,
changeYear: true,
dateFormat: 'dd-mm-yy',
showAnim: 'show',
onClose: closeDatePicker_DOB
});
});




change that to:

$(function(){
$('#DOB').datepicker({
changeMonth: true,
changeYear: true,
yearRange: '1950:2013',
dateFormat: 'dd-mm-yy',
showAnim: 'show',
onClose: closeDatePicker_DOB
});
});

another quick Q Jason. How would I preselect a specific year for that datechecker?

add a default date:

yearRange: '1950:2013',
defaultDate: '02/22/1989',

that will pre select February in the month list and 1989 in the year list
