code for form
- Heisan! Any Note Tabers that can help me out?
I am working on html code for a shopping cart called qcart . Is it possible
to add <input type=text> in the middle of this form with select and option
tags? And still have the cart figure out the price and display all the input
from the form. I am unsuccessful so far.
Here is a short sample of what the shopping cart code look like for a
<form method="post" action="http://www.qccart.net/cgi-bin/cart.cgi">
<input type="hidden" name="AddItem" value="9929125|1) One piece front
<option selected VALUE="Truck/Wheel system:
<option VALUE="Truck/Wheel system: 2 wheel drive<BR><LI>VARFrill2">2 wheel
<option VALUE="Truck/Wheel system: 4 wheel drive<BR><LI>VARFrill2">4 wheel
<option selected VALUE="Truck/Size: N/A<br><li>VARFrill3">N/A</option>
<option VALUE="Truck/Size: Full size<BR><LI>VARFrill3">Full size</option>
<option VALUE="Truck/Size: Down size<BR><LI>VARFrill3">Down
<option selected VALUE="Truck/Cabin: N/A|139 + 0.00">N/A</option>
<option VALUE="Truck/Cabin: Ext. cabin|139 + 0.00">Ext. cabin</option>
<option VALUE="Truck/Cabin: Crew cabin|139 + 0.00">Crew cabin</option>
<input type="image" border="0" name="submit"
The <br> <li> code is given from the qcart provider. Every time I run
Tidy HTML on this code it changes it to <BR><LI>. What does it
means for my page if I keep <br> <li>?
I am new in this game even though I have been on the list and tried to
follow the discussions. I hope my questions is not too far off the topics
covered here. Please bear over with me!
Are you by any chance Scandinavian?. CGI scripts are not my thing. I too,
am planning to learn that, so I got curious and went to the QCCart site and
had a look. I take it one is supposed to use the sample Forms on their page
and alter the values to correspond to one's products and prices and so on.
Is that right?
><form action=http://www.qccart.net/cgi-bin/cart.cgi method=post>That looks peculiar. Is the above supposed to correspond to the below from
><input type="hidden" name="AddItem" value="9929125|1) One piece front
the QCCart site?
<form action=http://www.qccart.net/cgi-bin/cart.cgi method=post>
<input type=hidden name=AddItem
If so, it seems like your cart id is 9929125 and the name of your product
is: 1) One piece front
Are you sure that is correct?

the QCCart script, I haven't an clue. Didn't look like they used that kind
of input fields. Do they have support? Didn't notice. If you want it for
another form/script it's OK as long as you don't place it within any of
QCCart's <FORM></FORM> tags. A form can't contain another form.
I know there are at least some guys into CGI on the list. They can probably
help you out. I just got excited because this stuff is on my mind right now
and had to butt in.
- Heisan Lotta! and hello Bill and Stephen!
I have been reading those CGI scripts up and down since I never saw a CGI
script in my life before. I finally got it to work somehow. I bought this
package, and found out that the 24 hour support did not include anything on
how to do this code. That belongs to Premium support department @ $100 or
per hour. I don't remember, and I can't afford either.
On my page do I need information about customer's choice of colors, text
like year, make and model and I have made multiple choice menus for
mat colors, text styles, etc., year and make of vehicle. But there are just
far too many models to make a menu for that. Instead I wanted people to
write in the model themselves in a text box. I prefer all that information
to be sent along with the order. But I have not figured out how I can get
<input type="text" size="20" name="?"> to work. The rest of my multiple
choice menus are all linked together in this way, the first pull down menu
reflects the variable VARFrill1 from the form:
<option value="Number of letters:1<br><li>VARFrill2">1</option>
<option value="Number of letters:2<br><li>VARFrill2">2</option>
<option value="Text style:Block<br><li>Varfrill3">Block</option>
<option value="Text style:Outline<br><li>Varfrill3">Outline</option>
<option value="Mat color: Red<br><li>VARFrill4">Red</option>
But how can I get the textbox linked in here? I need the input to be sent
with the rest of the form to. I have tried to call it
another variable, like VARQuan. But that does not work off course. It is
a number I ask for in the text box.
The text between " and <br><li> shows up the shopping cart and on the
customers order that is sent to me. If I don't include the <br><li> the
VARFrilln is displayed in the shopping cart. I have not checked if anything
goes wrong as well.

I put not only name of product, but also other things as mentioned above.

Stephen how do I find out if the cgi script allow the text box in the middle
of the form full of multiple choice drop down menus? Thanks for your advice
and I am happy I found the right list. I was sending it to the clip group
first, not realizing there were 2 different e-mails.
I am very happy about this list. I have learned the html I know so far all
by myself using internet and a couple of books. I needed someone to discuss
things with. And it helps trying to explain the problem. That already gave
me more ideas how to solve my problems. THANKS TO ALL OF YOU!!
