View Full Version : Using Jason's Date Input Calendar with .NET Form

Jason's Date Input Calendar


The calendar itself works fine. The issue is getting it to talk to my .NET form, which also works fine. It's just not capturing in the form results the JavaScript calendar value, which the script stores in a hidden field named "orderdate".

Honestly, I hardly know a lick of JavaScript or ASP (yet) -- I don't even know if what I'm asking is possible, difficult or easy. But I can follow instructions and templates, which is how I got this far.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Here's the page (label "Requested Schedule Service Date"): http://ctrfx.com/samples/entelechy/schedule_test.aspx

Here's the relevant form info:

<form runat="server">
<asp:MultiView ID="YourForm" runat="server" ActiveViewIndex="0">
<asp:View ID="FormContent" runat="server">
<label for="Requested_Schedule_Service_Date"><br />
Requested Schedule Service Date:</label><br />

<script type="">DateInput('orderdate', true, 'DD-MON-YYYY')</script>

<input type="button" onClick="alert(this.form.orderdate.value)" value="Show date value passed" />

<asp:validationsummary ID="ValidationSummary1" runat="server" CssClass="ValidateMessage" ForeColor="" ShowMessageBox="True" ShowSummary="False" />

<asp:button ID="SubmitForm" runat="server" OnClick="SubmitForm_Click" Text="Submit Form" />

<asp:View ID="FormConfirmationMessage" runat="server">
<p style="text-align: left">Thank you for contacting Entelechy Solutions.</p>

<asp:View ID="FormErrorMessage" runat="server">
Due to technical difficulty, your message may NOT have been sent.

<asp:View ID="FormSpamMessage" runat="server">

Here's the head script in case it's needed:
