modal window

Hey Ray

On the attached page, there is a modal starting at line 171 which holds a form which pops upon page load (clients request not mine!). Have got that workign fine (see PM) but what I am trying to figure out is how to regsiter that the visitor has either clicked submit or skip so that when they come back to the page they dont get the modal again....

Cheers

Jamie

You would have to set a cookie and then only pop up the modal if the cookie isn't set.

brilliant thanks Ray. Never used the cookie section in DA so which one would I use and how would I set it up?

I think there is one in the behaviors you could do client side with button onclick, or you could do it server side, but you would have to post to the page when they cancel, which seems like it wouldn't make sense.

But then you could do the conditional region server side to remove the code that pops up the window based on the set cookie.

something like this:

<?php
if ($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST") {
setcookie("formSubmitted", "yes", time()+(60*60*24*30), "/", "", 0);
}
?>



If thats correct how do you structure an if statment to wrap the modal code in?

is this the way?

<?php
if ("".$_COOKIE['formSubmitted'] ."" != "Yes") {
?>

<?php } ?>



EDIT. Have tried the above and it works, however if validation fails the modal disappears (as the submit button has been pressed) and I would assume that the 'thanks' message would not display either.... how would I get round this?

Put the set cookie code below the validation code.
