form won't submit due to radio button throwing up a validation error

form won't submit due to radio button throwing up a validation error

Hi everyone,

I've created a form with Form Builder and used Universal Email to produce the functionality. I just used one of the presets and modified it by adding a radio button group. When I test though, the form won't submit. The radio buttons keep throwing up the validation error even though I've actually selected one of them. Also, when the form page is loaded, the validation error on the radio buttons is showing right up front, even before I press the submit button.

I've attached the file - would someone mind taking a look to see what might be going one?

Thanks for any help.

Change line 13:

php:
$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateRQ((isset($_POST["Send_enquiry_group_Enquiry_type__1"])?$_POST["Send_enquiry_group_Enquiry_type__1"]:"") . "",true,3);





to:

php:
$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateRQ((isset($_POST["Send_enquiry_group_Enquiry_type"])?$_POST["Send_enquiry_group_Enquiry_type"]:"") . "",true,3);

Thanks, that fixed the problem and will allow me to submit the form, but when I receive the email I don't receive any of the information in the form. I used the html part of universal email to create an html email and I used the bindings panel to bind the form data but nothing comes through except the labels in the table that I created for the email.

Do you know what might be happening?

This is the code relating the html email:

<p><img src="imgs/logo.png" width="182" height="72" alt="Logo" /></p>
<table width="400" border="0" style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif";>
<tr>
<th width="120" align="left" scope="row">From:</th>
<td width="320"><?php echo (ValidatedField("contactWAUEHTMLWAUniversalEmail1","Send_enquiry_group_Name"))?></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<th width="120" align="left" scope="row">Email address:</th>
<td width="320"><?php echo (ValidatedField("contactWAUEHTMLWAUniversalEmail1","Send_enquiry_group_Email"))?></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<th width="120" align="left" scope="row">Enquiry type:</th>
<td width="320"><?php echo (ValidatedField("contactWAUEHTMLWAUniversalEmail1","Send_enquiry_group_Enquiry_type"))?></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<th width="120" align="left" scope="row">Comments:</th>
<td width="320"><?php echo (ValidatedField("contactWAUEHTMLWAUniversalEmail1","Send_enquiry_group_Comments"))?></td>
</tr>
</table>

You are using the validated entries binding group. the validated entries only get a value when validation fails. Instead use the form binding group on the binding panel.

Thanks - that fixed the problem.

I noticed that I had to manually revise a line of code to fix the first problem in this post. Will I have to do this every time I run form builder or is a fix needed to the extension?

Also, I noticed that if after running the extension and I make a manual change to the css, I'm no longer able to go back into the interface. Is this what's supposed to happen?

yes, until we release an update to fix the problem which should be soon.


Editing the CSS should not stop you from using CSS form builder to edit the design, though your manual changes will be lost.

What is the change you are making?

Actually that's what I meant, ie. all my changes were lost. Hopefully in an up-and-coming version this won't be the case.

I'm also having problems changing the width of a textarea element in the form builder interface. I set the width of the overall form to be 366 pixels, then I had to go change the width of the text area to be something like 350 pixels, but when I enter this number and click apply, the element doesn't resize. Any idea why this won't work?

after entering the width, use the enter key on the keyboard or tab to another field to force the change to stick before clicking the apply button.

I was doing that, ie. hitting the enter and/or tab key but it won't stick. It just won't change. I even tried deleting the form and starting again but I'm still getting the same problem, and in addition to that when I try to change the bottom margin in the fieldset description, instead of any margin being adjusted, the colour of the description text changes instead. Also when I click finish Dreamweaver crashes.

I'm using mac os 10.5.8 so not sure if this could be contributing?

Really need help here as I can't continue with the form.
