use on extended form.... failing
mspIggy - 11/5/2009 at 09:59 PM

hi guys -- nifty app..

i am trying to use this popup calendar, but with limited success... (sample1)

the only way i can use it is without the form tags, as this is in-line on a form that collects, many many other fields of data... (form tags kill my fields on page submit)

if I strip out

the form tags -- it seems to work in ie but not ff...

any thoughts on how i can get this to actually work?

i found an ancient post in forum that was closed...
http://www.softcomplex.com/forum/viewthread.php?tid=851#pid4648

seems others have this issue as well...

referred to DOCS page where there was little help...

in fact the referenced area "What is Calendar inside" from reference of some 5 years ago -- seem to be not in current docs...

it sure would be nice to be able to use this...

i am sure many others would like to use this in a form that may have other action or a different submit...

how can we make this work in this case?

i have tried to name this after my main form action - order... no go... with the form tags stripped...

'formname': 'order',


huge amounts of thanks

:)

Code:
<input type="text" name="delivery1" class=textbox size="10" maxlength="10" value="<?php if($vars["delivery"]){echo $vars["delivery"];} else{echo $earliest_date;} ?>" />
<script language="JavaScript">
new tcal ({
// form name
// 'formname': 'order',
'controlname': 'delivery1'
// input name

});

</script>


this seems to work in IE only... as we like it to...

HELP :)

this is what i have now...

hi...

also wondering if this calender will be a black hole of calcutta for se bots... killing apache/ http stacks

we use a calendar now - with IMG link to activate popup, with no follow tag that is a bot catcher to the end of time that drags server resources... sometimes stopping apache

what will prevent SE bots from entering this calendar? and scanning dates?

thank you

we wish to use this ina form, with several other 'actions' ....

also we need a way to prevent SE bots from crawling calendar to the end of time...

can some very kind person please lend some enlightenment on this areas...

i will be very grateful...

thank you very much...
