Two delete buttons for two different tables on the same page

Two delete buttons for two different tables on the same page

I have a page with two delete buttons to delete records from two different table son the same page.

With just either of them, they both seem to work.

But with both on delete forms on the page, one of them stops working.

I have attached the page below - hopefully its something simple. (I've checked the submit name and Ids are correct, which they look like they are.)

Thanks.

both delete forms use the same ID for the hidden form element:

WADADeleteRecordID

You would have to make that unique by renaming it in one of the forms and then updating the references to it in the script where applicable.

1) In the server behavior
2) in the script when the delete button is pressed
3) in the hidden form element itself

Thanks Ray - I had only changed those in the form element.

Can you remind me how to add the WA delete record server behaviour? Since things went a bit funny with DW ages ago I do most stuff manually if I can. Which isn't ideal but I've had so many issues with the later versions of DW.

I've just reinstalled the DataBridge extension, and am looking in the server behaviours window, but when I click the add, there are no WA options. There's a separate WA menu, but don't think its in there?

It will be in the Server Behaviors window not in the main menu.

You could also just replace the form element references manually.

If you do a Find on that form element name it will appear 10 times on the page... 5 for each delete. You just have to update the correct 5 that refer to one of the deletes and leave the others as they are.

I've made those changes now, but still doing odd things with the delete element one - seems to be deleting a day.

Can you have a quick look to see if it looks OK on the attached page?

Or did I need to change the references in the server behaviour as well?

I only see behaviours 'Dynamic Text Field (WADADeleteRecordID)', but can't see how I change it. If I double click it, it brings up a box, but that is greyed out, and I can only change its dynamic value.

It looks like the popup window also has to be renamed to be unique. They are both named "deleteMessage".

Try updating the references to 'deleteMessage' on lines 616,621, and 626 to 'deleteDayMessage'

Thanks Ray - also needed to make WADADeleteRecordName unique for each as well, but its working now.

One last little thing - the cancel button on in the pop up works for the delete element, but is giving an error when I cancel the delete day from the pop up.

Its not a deal breaker, as its fine with a link back to the page instead, but if you can spot anything obvious it probably would be better to just close the pop up rather than reload the page.

That cancel button is type="submit" it should be type="button". I think that is the only problem with it.

Thanks Ray - that fixed it. Not sure how or when or why I would have changed that. (Might have been to do with some CSS for the text on the button.)
