Re: adi_contact – Form field validation, spam prevention & more

This is a great plug-in. It really does extend the use of zemcr.

I am struggling with some check boxes though. The snippet below is intended to ensure that the user completes at least one checkbox indicating an interest in a particular qualification or qualifications. The error message appears whether 0, 1, 2 or all 3 boxes are checked. I am using version 0.2.

<div><txp:zem_contact_checkbox label="CEng" name="ceng" break="" required="0" /></div>
<div><txp:zem_contact_checkbox label="IEng" name="ieng" break="" required="0" /></div>
<div><txp:zem_contact_checkbox label="EngTech" name="engtech" break="" required="0" /></div>
<txp:adi_contact_combo name="ceng,ieng,engtech" checkbox="1" restrict="min" number="1" message="Please check at least one Professional Registration that interests you" />

Any idea where I am messing up?

Glad you find it useful.

Try using names= rather than name=.

Cheers,

Adi

Adi, Very many thanks, how could I be so blind to that!

That’s OK. It happens to me all the time. It was only when I blindly pasted your code into my test bed that the helpful Textpattern provided the answer!

Adi,

You know, in this case, the profound annoyance I felt with myself for missing the names vs name error was surpassed by the absolute delight I experienced when the form began to behave as it should. It is a mini poll aimed at members of an Institute and needed to include verification that the respondent is a bone fide member. The error checking and verification that your plug-in provides makes it straightforward to do with ZCR. Very many thanks again.

Re: adi_contact – Form field validation, spam prevention & more

Adi, this is another amazing plugin. I read through the documentation, and I have a quick question. Can you determine if two fields are the same value? For instance, in a contact form, having a field for an e-mail address, and then a second field to type in the e-mail address again, and then somehow verifying they’re the same value?

Sounds feasible – I’ll look into it.

Re: adi_contact – Form field validation, spam prevention & more

hello, seams to me that some break; are missing in adi_contact_validate :

case 'phone':
                            $ok &= preg_match("/^[0-9x\ \+\-\(\)\.,]*$/i",$field_value);
                        case 'url':
                            $ok &= preg_match("/^(?:http:\/\/)?(?:[\w-]+\.)+[a-z]{2,6}$/i",$field_value);
                        case 'custom':
                            if ($pattern)
                                $ok &= preg_match($pattern,$field_value);

Took some time to figure out.
regards

You’re quite right! Thanks for pointing out my not-so-deliberate mistake. Strangely enough, I spotted it last night when looking into Kevin Potts’ request. It’ll be fixed in the next update.

Re: adi_contact – Form field validation, spam prevention & more

This looks like a very useful plugin, but unfortunately I’ve had trouble getting it to work. There seems to be a problem with this plugin’s conditional field requirement feature in cases where one of the fields is a checkbox and the other is not.

The form I’m working on has a checkbox where the user indicates their preference for getting a sales call. If they check the box, a bit of JavaScript reveals and enables the phone number field. I want the phone number field to be required only if the user checked the box indicating that calls are okay. Here’s the code I’m using for that part of the form:

<ul id="phone-fields">
  <li><txp:zem_contact_checkbox name="prospect-phonepref" label="I want a sales associate to call me." required="0" break="" /></li>
  <li id="optional-phone"><txp:zem_contact_text name="prospect-phonenum" label="Phone Number" required="0" min="7" max="30" break="" /></li>
</ul>

<txp:zem_contact_submit>Request Free Trial</txp:zem_contact_submit>

<txp:adi_contact_combo names="prospect-phonepref" checkbox="1" require="prospect-phonenum" message="If you want us to call you, please provide your phone number." />

The form presents the error message regardless of whether the checkbox is checked. Unless I’ve misunderstood the plugin’s documentation, this should work… right?
