    Date field in HTML form

    Hello,
    I ask a small question. I am sending a form to order. I have two files: test1.php and test2.php. Everything works fine. I would like only the form, there is a field or the user can choose the date of delivery of the product and of course he can not choose a date before the current date. How can I do this? Any help will be appreciated. Thank you.

    Re: Date field in HTML form

    I propose to fill forms to my clients, who will then feed a mysql database, but how to have the date of registration include it?
    Is there a miracle function like:
    Code:
    <Input type = "hidden" name = "date" value = "date???"
    I could insert into my form? Thank you all for your help.

    Re: Date field in HTML form

    Why do not you put the date in. via PHP ? because you'd have javascript turned off. So you do something like
    Code:
    <Input type = "hidden" name = "date" value = "<? Today's date in PHP?>"

    Re: Date field in HTML form

    I injected the code:
    <Input type = "hidden" name = "date" value = "<? Php echo date (" cmd");?>">
    and everything is OK. In one form, I create a list box to the customer inserts his city. Here's the code:
    Code:
     <select name="vl" id="vl"> 
                  <option> Choose ...</ option> 
                  <option value="vl1"> town1 </ option> 
                  <option value="vl2"> vl2 </ option> 
                  <option value="vl3"> vl3 </ option> (etc. ..) 
              </ Select>
    But if the city of the customer is not in this list, I asked him to return the input directly by the function:
    Code:
              <input type="text" name="vl" id="vl">
    If the user enters the names of his city by the function input is OK, but if he selects a city from the dropdown list, it is automatically deleted by the function input that follows, and in which n has not returned. What to do? In any case thank you 1000 times for once the date (it's true that I had to post it in php, both for me).

    Re: Date field in HTML form

    You put two fields cities:
    Code:
    you select your call tw1 
    and your input vl2
    PHP and you tested:
    Code:
    if tw1 = name
    then vlchoice = vl2 
    otherwise vlchoice = tw1
    It's not hard to make a php IF statement.

    Re: Date field in HTML form

    This is the code you are looking for
    Code:
    <form action="" method="post"> 
      <p> 
        Choose your city: 
          <select name="chx1" id="chx1"> 
          <option value=""> Select </ option> 
          <option value="vl1"> town1 </ option> 
          <option value="vl2"> vl2 </ option> 
          <option value="vl3"> vl3 </ option> 
        </ Select> 
    </ P> 
      <p> or enter the name of your city: 
        <input type="text" name="chx2" id="chx2"> 
    </ P> 
      <p> 
        <input type="submit" name="submit" value="Envoyer"> 
    </ P> 
      </ p> 
      </ p> 
      <Php 
     $ d = $ _POST ['chx1']; 
     $ d2 = $ _POST ['chx2']; 
     if ($ d == "") 
     ( 
     ?> 
     <Input type = "hidden" name = "city" value = "<? Echo $ d2;?>"> 
     <? 
     echo $ d1; 
     echo $ d2; 
     
     ) 
     ?> 
    </ Form>

    Re: Date field in HTML form

    The problem is that I must submiter TWICE before having the correct value (the correct name of town) in the variable $ Resu-that's a bit messy ... It should be something that "pre-valid" variables and choix1 choix2; I Potash my big books, and I found the "OnBlur" but I know the syntax ... What do you think?
