Can only enter datepicker once

Can only enter datepicker once

I have a form with a date field in it but can only enter the datepicker once. As soon as I select a date from the datepicker, I get an "Error on page" message appearing in the lower left corner of the browser. If I double click on the error message icon message reads:

Message: Object doesn't support this property or method
Line: 70
Char: 3
Code: 0
URI: add_inv_create_items.php

If I view the scource of the webpage line 70 is in the following javascript function:

function closeDatePicker_Add_Invoice_group_Invoice_Date() {
var tElm = $('#Add_Invoice_group_Invoice_Date');
if (typeof Add_Invoice_group_Invoice_Date_Spry != null && typeof Add_Invoice_group_Invoice_Date_Spry != "undefined") {
Add_Invoice_group_Invoice_Date_Spry.validate();
}
var docElm = document.getElementById("Add_Invoice_group_Invoice_Date");
var tBlur = docElm.getAttribute("onBlur");
if (!tBlur) tBlur = docElm.getAttribute("onblur");
if (!tBlur) tBlur = docElm.getAttribute("ONBLUR");
if (tBlur) {
tBlur = tBlur.replace(/\bthis\b/g, "docElm");
eval(tBlur);
}
}

Line 70 is this line: tBlur = tBlur.replace(/\bthis\b/g, "docElm");

Please send a copy of the PHP Page in a zip file so I can investigate the code to see what the problem may be.

Problem page is attached. I have also noticed that this only happens in IE (I'm using 8.0.7100.0) Firefox (3.5.3) works OK although there is another problem there. I have a verticle menu on the left hand side and the form is in the content area on the right hand side. In Firefox the form is pushed down the page and doesn't start untill after the menu content in the left hand side. IE displays it correctly at the top of the page. I have attached screenshots of both.

Has this window problem with date picker been solved

I was wondering if this datepicker problem with IE has been solved. I have the sane issue, I can enter the date picker when the form first loads, but after a date has been picked or a validation error is triggered I can no longer click in the datepicker field and trigger the datepicker

No it hasn't, but it only seems to do this on my testing server, when I upload it to my live server. The datepickers seem to work OK.

Requesting Update to the Status of this Problem

[QUOTE=Lee Firth;20536]I have a form with a date field in it but can only enter the datepicker once. As soon as I select a date from the datepicker, I get an "Error on page" message appearing in the lower left corner of the browser. If I double click on the error message icon message reads: ----snipped!-----

This whole thread resulted in an inconclusive answer.

I too am experiencing the same issues as described in this thread. My investigations prove that the problem of only working once is apparent in browsers IE's 6 and 7, but works in IE 8 and Firefox (as stated in the thread).

My problem is that the suite of forms I have created are to be used on a system which has IE 6 installed and will not be upgraded to IE 8 or indeed changed to Firefox (or any other browser that works). So a fix is essential to me if I am to use the 'Datepicker' feature. Could you please provide a status report as to where you are with possibly resolving this issue and when you intend to release it to us?

If indeed a solution has already been identified and released, can you please advise where it is to be found as it does not appear to be in this forum thread. Many thanks.

It looks like our last response to the user may have resolved the issue. I apologize for not having it posted here, but this is due to not being able to confirm that it did work for the user. Here is the response:
You are correct, this is an issue with IE only with the date picker. To resolve this issue, try replacing the onblur in this line:

<input id="Add_Invoice_group_Invoice_Date" name="Add_Invoice_group_Invoice_Date" type="text" value="" class="formTextfield_Medium" tabindex="2" onblur="hideServerError('Add_Invoice_group_Invoice_Date_ServerError');"/>


to onfocus:

<input id="Add_Invoice_group_Invoice_Date" name="Add_Invoice_group_Invoice_Date" type="text" value="" class="formTextfield_Medium" tabindex="2" onfocus="hideServerError('Add_Invoice_group_Invoice_Date_ServerError');"/>


remember that this will solve the issue, but if you reenter the wizard, then this change will be overwritten.
