    Checkbox logic system

    mcrostie

      Hi all

       

      I am designing a order system (for the web) which I require the checking of boxes in (sometimes) multi records. ie line item 1 requires A, line item 2 requires B and line item 3 requires B as well.

       

      From this, I want to design logic system with multi options ie "if 2 lines select B place a check in Box C" and many others.

       

      Any thoughts of ways to implement? or links to other information?

       

      Regards

          JavaScript & CSS. Learn how to use these.  This is similar to a web solution I created. You can make blocks visible and invisible with these two great tools. If it's client-side JavaScript, the results are instantaneous. Otherwise a PHP (or other web app) requires a submit-browser refresh.

            Thanks Beverly

             

            Now you have said that, I have looked at lynda.com to find some sort of training/information about javascript.

             

            Wow, where do I start and does it still involve FMP?

             

            Sorry for the naive question

             

            Regards

              You asked a WEB question. This works within static (or dynamically created static-like pages). Unless FMP is the database, and or web viewer is some how involved, you need to ask more specific questions. Yes I have created FMP calculations to export to TEXT as JavaScript includes for websites. Yes I have as used JavaScript inside web viewer. But these are more involved.

               

              How are you using FMP and web?

                Beverly is hinting at but not saying that you have a bit of a learning curve ahead if you don't know PHP and a bit of javascript and CSS. Good luck with that...

                 

                The most significant javascript library which you would find really helpful for the kind of thing you are wanting to do is jquery.

                  You cannot do this with FileMaker Instant Web Publishing if that is your question. Only custom web publishing (if using FileMaker).
