  1. I figured it out... using javascript I retrieved the value of the start date and assigned it to the field for the requested date. Then the popup calendar has the correct month and year.
  2. Does anyone know if it's possible to specify the month and year of a field that uses the calendar popup? In my submission form, users request a lesson and specify a date and time. The lessons are offered only during a certain time period (which varies depending on the lesson), so I have two cascading dropdown fields that display the start and end dates that the lesson is offered. Instead of clicking through 3-5 months ahead of the current date, I'd like the calendar pop up to start on the month and year that the lesson is offered. Thanks!
  3. In one of my submission forms, users are allowed, but not required, to select an alternate date. In the acknowledgment email, I'd like to hide the alternate date details if one isn't selected. Is this possible? Thanks!
  4. I'd like to display the value of a cascading drop down as text. My submission form allows the user to select a lesson from a list. Once the lesson is selected, I would like to display the lesson description below it. I use a cascading drop down to get the description, but it only shows the first part of the description because it's a drop down. I need to display the full text, which varies from 350-600 characters. I think I need to use document.getElementsByName and assign it to a variable, then display that variable. But, I'm not a JS programmer. Attached is a screen shot of what my form looks like. It allows the teacher to select a lesson then request a time and day for the lesson to be taught. Any help would be appreciated!
  5. Have you had any luck with this? I want to do something similar. My submission form is set-up so a teacher selects an art lesson from a cascading drop down box that is specific to the teacher's grade level. I would like to include a description of the lesson. I can display it as another drop down, but the text can be lengthy and it would be great to be able to display this as a text area instead. Ideally, it would also be display only.
  6. It's now more complicated. In a submission data page I allow the user to enter a start date and end date which passes virtual parameters to a second data page and filters the results so the user only sees records that fall within their specified range. And if the start date specified is before today, I would like it to over-ride their input and have the start date as today. But...the user is not required to enter a date range. In this case, all records that meet other optional criteria are displayed. The kicker is that I want to restrict those records to only those that are from today forward. They shouldn't see records from yesterday or last month. I suspect I have to use javascript, but I'm a newbie and am having trouble understanding how to use the new date() object. Help would be greatly appreciated!
  7. Caspio confirmed that a trigger needs to be set on the back-end. They also want a ridiculous amount of money to set it up (we are a non-profit with a very limited budget). We will be going the "manual" route by setting up a separate data page to generate a custom email. Fortunately, this is only for 20-30 records a week.
  8. I need the results of my view to filter all records that have a date of TODAY going forward. When I set the filter to AFTER NOW, it does not include today. Can anyone help? Do I have to use javascript?
  9. I figured it out... the original var x = document.getElementByID("EditRecordName1").value; the correct format var x = document.getElementsByName("EditRecordName1")[0].value; Added an /s/ to element and changed /ID/ to /Name/ and added at the end [0]. Not sure what the [0] actually means, but it works!
  10. Is it possible to combine the results of drop downs? When I use var x = document.getElementById("EditRecordFieldName1").value; var y = document.getElementById("EditRecordFieldName2").value; var bothnames = x + y; and the input types are set to TEXT, I get the result I want. If I change it to a drop down that references a look-up table then I get no result. Is there a different way to access the value? Thanks!!
  11. Is it possible for Caspio to auto-generate an email based on date? Or at a minimum, batch process them by date instead of selecting each record individually to submit an update that will send an acknowledgment email?
