Hello,

I would like to add a call to the save function. I am looking for a way to close a modal window once the save button is clicked. I have tried adding window.parent.SqueezeBox.close();:
Joomla.submitbutton = function(pressbutton)
{
document.formvalidator.submitform(document.adminForm, pressbutton, function(pressbutton){
window.parent.SqueezeBox.close();
return Joomla.submitform(pressbutton);
});
return false;
}

The line window.parent.SqueezeBox.close(); doesn't seem to be executed. Why? Is there another way to add javascript to particular views?

Thanks,

Hmmm, no answer... Does it mean it is impossible to add a javascript call to the buttons (be it Save, Apply or Cancel)? How can one add a confirm button to those buttons?

Hum, maybe because it is not called ;-)

Did you knew this one :

BACK com_xxxxx/js/formvalidator.js

Yes, it is not being called from the form and I am wondering why. If I add an alert() to the com_xxxxx/js/formvalidator.js file, it does appear. But I what I would like to do is to add it in my form, in the view that produces the form. Maybe I don't understand the role of the javascript section at the top of my file:
<?php Suivirm6Helper::headerDeclarations(); ?>

<h1 class='componentheading'><?php echo(JText::_("SUIVIRM6_LAYOUT_NOUVEAU_SUIVI"));?></h1>

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
	Joomla.submitbutton = function(pressbutton)
	{
		document.formvalidator.submitform(document.adminForm, pressbutton, function(pressbutton){
			alert('On est dans la fonction document.formvalidator.submitform de nouveausuivi');
			return Joomla.submitform(pressbutton);
		});
	   	return false;
	}
</script>

<form action="<?php echo(JRoute::_("index.php")); ?>" method="post" name="adminForm" id="adminForm" class='form-validate'>
	<div>
		<?php echo JDom::_('html.toolbar', array(
			"bar" => $this->lists['toolbar']
			));
		?>
		<?php echo $this->loadTemplate('fly'); ?>
		<?php echo $this->loadTemplate('form'); ?>
	</div>

	<?php echo JDom::_('html.form.footer', array(
		'dataObject' => $this->suivisitem,
		'values' => array(
				'option' => "com_suivirm6",
				'view' => "suivisitem",
				'layout' => "nouveausuivi"
				)));
	?>
</form>

If I remove the javascript part ...
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
	Joomla.submitbutton = function(pressbutton)
	{
		document.formvalidator.submitform(document.adminForm, pressbutton, function(pressbutton){
			alert('On est dans la fonction document.formvalidator.submitform de nouveausuivi');
			return Joomla.submitform(pressbutton);
		});
	   	return false;
	}
</script>

... the behavior of the form is not modified.
  1. the alert I placed in formvalidator.js is called
  2. the message " is requested. Please retry. Erreur" is posted and the form is not processed
  3. the user is sent back to the form

Why is that? What is the use of that "javascript" section?

Thanks again,

I just realize that this behavior is only seen on the public forms. It reacts as expected in the forms residing on the admin side.

I am having the same problem.

I have two forms available on my website that users can enter data on. The first one is a form containing many fileds, most of them are mandatory. On the second form I use fewer fields. The second form is where the errors are generated.

I think that it has to do with form two saving "incomplete data". The system thinks that because a field is set to mandatory in admin that it must be present when saving data from the front end even if that field is not in use on that form.

How can we prevent the error?

Hi @visibility,

Please see this thread here: j-cook.pro/forum/9-coding-inside-your-co...ds-in-front-end-form that describes how to show, hide and disable fields on a form using jQuery. It also includes all the code you need to achieve it.

You'll need to read it all but the part that you need specifically is: j-cook.pro/forum/9-coding-inside-your-co...-front-end-form#4490 that will remove the required class on fields that you want to ignore programmatically.

Hope it helps!

Best wishes,

Gez
