Australian Customisation

Australian Customisation

Hi, I am in Australia - so need to change a few things like 'State' in the users_Profile page. If I change what is there, the database is updated, but the form wont show the 'inital value'. Is there somewhere else that validates the state codes?
Thanks

If you are getting the value into the db ok but are not seeing that reflected on the profile update page then you may need to bind that input with the recordset. If you select the input and choose the dynamic properties from the property inspector you will be able to bind the value from the recordset.

I'm not sure if this is the issue you are experiencing or not though. Please explain a little more about the problem if I have got it wrong.

Thought I had

Thanks for the reply, You are on the right track - I thought I had the 'State Code' in the value field. Because of the Spry - it is a little different to what I am used to.
The usual field (in display mode) for Initally selected is not present.

When the page loads the input still displays 'Choose a State" instead of the actual state code.
Here is the first part of the code

<select name="UserState" id="UserState" title="<?php echo(ValidatedField("usersProfile","UserState")) ?>" onBlur="if (document.getElementById('stateServerValidation')) document.getElementById('stateServerValidation').style.display='none'" onChange="if (document.getElementById('stateServerValidation')) document.getElementById('stateServerValidation').style.display='none'" >
<option value="" selected="selected" <?php if (!(strcmp("", (isset($_GET['valid'])?ValidatedField("usersProfile","UserState"):$row_WAATKusers['UserState'])))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>>Choose a state</option>
<option value="N/A" <?php if (!(strcmp("N/A", (isset($_GET['valid'])?ValidatedField("usersProfile","UserState"):$row_WAATKusers['UserState'])))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>>N/A</option>
<option value="NSW" <?php if (!(strcmp("NSW", (isset($_GET['valid'])?ValidatedField("usersProfile","UserState"):$row_WAATKusers['UserState'])))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>>New South Wales</option>

I was able to get this working on my PowerStore by first editing the state select list on the registration full page. Here are the first three options from the state list on that registration page:

php:
<option value="" selected="selected" <?php if (!(strcmp("", (ValidatedField("usersRegistrationfull","UserState"))))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>>Choose a state</option>

            <option value="N/A" <?php if (!(strcmp("N/A", (ValidatedField("usersRegistrationfull","UserState"))))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>>N/A</option>
            <option value="NSW" <?php if (!(strcmp("NSW", (ValidatedField("usersRegistrationfull","UserState"))))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>>New South Wales</option>



Then on the profile page I added in the NSW value to the list so the first three options on that list are:

php:
<option value="" selected="selected" <?php if (!(strcmp("", (isset($_GET['valid'])?ValidatedField("usersProfile","UserState"):$row_WAATKusers['UserState'])))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>>Choose a state</option>

              <option value="N/A" <?php if (!(strcmp("N/A", (isset($_GET['valid'])?ValidatedField("usersProfile","UserState"):$row_WAATKusers['UserState'])))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>>N/A</option>
              <option value="NSW" <?php if (!(strcmp("NSW", (isset($_GET['valid'])?ValidatedField("usersProfile","UserState"):$row_WAATKusers['UserState'])))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>>New South Wales</option>



Adding in the NSW option was all that I did for both of these lists and when I register a new user and select NSW I see this reflected on the profile page. Please give this a try and use my example code on both the full registration page and your profile page to see if the same works for you.
