Currently Being Moderated form to post entries to email WITH calendar-date input

May 15, 2010 5:36 PM

Hi all. I posted first in the general dreamweaver forum - no response. I'm new to and I have a feeling the solution for this is obvious. Please help!



I have an form on one page that sends the entries to an email address. Heres the script:



<%@ Page Language="VB" EnableSessionState="False" 
EnableViewState="False" Trace="False" Debug="False"%>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Web.Mail" %> 
<script language="VB" runat=server>

Sub Page_Load(Sender as Object, E as EventArgs) 
   If Page.IsPostBack Then
       lblResponse.Text = "Your email has been sent."
   End If
End Sub 
Sub btn_Click(sender as Object, e as System.EventArgs)
If  Request.Form("Email") <> "" Then
   Dim objMail As New MailMessage()
   objMail.From = Request.Form("Email")
   objMail.To = ""
   objMail.Subject = Request.Form("Subject")
   objMail.Body = Request.Form("Message") & Request.Form("Message")
   objMail.BodyFormat = MailFormat.Text
   SmtpMail.SmtpServer = ""
   lblResponse.Text = "Please enter an email address."
End If
End Sub

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" >
<html xmlns="">


other stuff...




...other stuff...


<asp:Label class="main" id="lblResponse" 

<form method="post" name="form2" runat="server">

email:<br />
<input type="text" size="44" class="main" name="Email" value="">

<br />

first:<br />
<input type="text" class="main" size="20" name="First" value="">

<br />

last:<br />
<input type="text" class="main" size="20" name="Last" value="">

<br />
<br />

<b>Dates:</b><br />
<br />
<br />
        <input name="text1" type="text" />
        <a href="'/asp/calendar.aspx?form name=form2 .text1','calendar_window','width=154,height=188');calendar_window.foc us()">Calen dar</a>

<br />

<input type="Submit" id="btnSubmit" OnServerClick="btn_Click" value="Send" runat="server" />



... etc, etc...







The first red text is the beginning of the form. The second red text is the code for a textbox, with a link next to it, opening a popup window with a calendar on it. I select the date on the calendar and its SUPPOSED to close the pop up, and add the date to the textbox. Simple.


Problem is - the calendar only works when "runat='server'" is taken away from the form declaration "<form... runat="server">". The form only works (sends the email) when "runat='server'" is stated. Can't fix one without breaking the other somehow.


The second file is called "calendar.aspx." - if you need it - what the popup window actually opens and where the asp scripting for the calendar is. Script is:


<%@ Page Language="vb" %>

<script runat="server">
    Private Sub Calendar1_SelectionChanged(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
      Dim strjscript as string = "<script language=""javascript"">"
      strjscript &= "window.opener." & _
            Httpcontext.Current.Request.Querystring("formname") & ".value = '" & _
            Calendar1.SelectedDate & "';window.close();"
      strjscript = strjscript & "</script" & ">" 'Don't Ask, Tool Bug
      Literal1.Text = strjscript  'Set the literal control's text to the JScript code
    End Sub

    Private Sub Calendar1_DayRender(sender As Object, e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.DayRenderEventArgs)
       If e.Day.Date ="d") Then
       e.Cell.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.LightGray
       End If
    End Sub

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"><html>
    <title>Choose a Date</title>
<body leftmargin="0" topmargin="0">
    <form runat="server">
        <asp:Calendar id="Calendar1" runat="server" OnSelectionChanged="Calendar1_SelectionChanged" OnDayRender="Calendar1_dayrender" showtitle="true" DayNameFormat="FirstTwoLetters" SelectionMode="Day" BackColor="#ffffff" FirstDayOfWeek="Monday" BorderColor="#000000" ForeColor="#00000" Height="60" Width="120">
            <TitleStyle backcolor="#000080" forecolor="#ffffff" />
            <NextPrevStyle backcolor="#000080" forecolor="#ffffff" />
            <OtherMonthDayStyle forecolor="#c0c0c0" />
        <asp:Literal id="Literal1" runat="server"></asp:Literal>

This is probably a simple fix. Like I said I'm new to, and html-self-taught. I went through a couple tutorials, and cut and pasted some scripts I found online. I got everything to work seperately, but when I put it together, couldn't. THANKS!
