spry validation

I have created an insert query to append n rows to a table.

On my upload form, the price input text fields are generated dynamically, which reflects the number of size options available from a recordset called rssizes.

What i want to do is apply spry validation to these text input fields, so that they only accept numerical values, but having tried this, only the first field is validated.

offending page is here, please try it.

You would have to dynamically name the spry span tags and add the necessary .js code to initiate each as a spry validated area.

thanks Ray,

i'm half way there.

concatenating the sizeid onto the spryvalidation text field in the php loop gives me the increments I need.

where the variables are declared in the js is the only bit I haven't solved yet.

if i create the variables manually, rather than in the php loop, the page works fine, (albeit with dreamweaver warning messages at design time due to the fact that the rssizes recordset hasn't yet got any data in it).

what i have't been able to do yet is create the js variable names within the php loop


var sprytextfield4 = new Spry.Widget.ValidationTextField("sprytextfield4", "currency", {isRequired:false});

You should probably add a second loop on the bottom of the page to add that part, making sure to reset your loop to the first record so it can run again.

The code may need to appear after the "</form>" tag, since it manipulates the form onsubmit code, which may be why it won't work when added to the loop inside it.

It could also be a problem with your syntax or a missing <script> tag when you are writing it to the page.
