Hello

This might be a simple question, but it is stretching my mind!

I have a HTML page and clicking on a link brings up a light-box. The lightbox is a form linked to three CDD files and a PHP files which processes the form in the background when the site visitor clicks 'submit'.

I am proposing to add another field to the form which will alllow visitors to attach files to their message.

I have to be a bit careful how I code this because the form also links to three JavaScript files and everything interrelates.

The three CSS files are as follows:

contact.css:


body {height:100%; margin:0;}

/* Overlay */
#contact-overlay {background-color:#000; cursor:wait;}

/* Container */
#contact-container {width:430px; font-family:Verdana, Arial; font-size:12px; text-align:left;}
#contact-container .contact-content {background-color:#333; color:#ddd; height:40px;}
#contact-container h1 {color:#F6E095; margin:0; padding:0 0 6px 12px; font-size:1.2em; text-align:left;}
#contact-container .contact-loading {position:absolute; background:url(../img/contact/loading.gif) no-repeat; z-index:8000; height:55px; width:54px; margin:-14px 0 0 170px; padding:0;}
#contact-container .contact-message {text-align:center;}
#contact-container .contact-error {width:92%; font-size:.8em; background:#000; border:2px solid #ccc; font-size:0.8em; font-weight:bold; margin:0 auto; padding:2px;}
#contact-container br {clear:both;}
#contact-container form {padding:0; margin:0;}
#contact-container label {clear:left; display:block; width:100px; float:left; text-align:right; padding-right:4px; font-weight:bold;}
#contact-container .contact-input {font-family:Verdana, Arial; float:left; padding:2px; margin:2px; background:#eee; border:1px solid #fff; width:300px;}
#contact-container textarea {height:114px; font-size:.9em;}
#contact-container .contact-cc {font-size:.9em; cursor:default;}
#contact-container .contact-top {height:13px; background:url(../img/contact/form_top.gif) no-repeat; padding:0; margin:0;}
#contact-container .contact-bottom {height:13px; background:url(../img/contact/form_bottom.gif) no-repeat; font-size:.7em; text-align:center;}
#contact-container .contact-bottom a,
#contact-container .contact-bottom a:link,
#contact-container .contact-bottom a:active,
#contact-container .contact-bottom a:visited {position:relative; top:-4px; text-decoration:none; color:#666;}
#contact-container .contact-bottom a:hover {color:#888;}
#contact-container .contact-button {margin:4px 0 0 4px; cursor:pointer; height:24px; border:0; font-size:1em; font-weight:bold; color:#fff; text-align:center; vertical-align:middle;}
#contact-container .contact-send {width:50px; background:url(../img/contact/send.png) no-repeat;}
#contact-container .contact-cancel {width:65px; background:url(../img/contact/cancel.png) no-repeat;}
#contact-container a.modal-close,
#contact-container a.modal-close:link,
#contact-container a.modal-close:active,
#contact-container a.modal-close:visited {text-decoration:none; font-weight:bold; font-size:1.2em; position:absolute; top:-4px; right:6px; color:#999;}
#contact-container a.modal-close:hover {color:#9bb3b3;}

}

#lightbox.done #lbLoadMessage{
display:none;
}
#lightbox.done #lbContent{
display:block;
}
#lightbox.loading #lbContent{
display:none;
}
#lightbox.loading #lbLoadMessage{
display:block;
}

#lightbox.done img{
width:100%;
height:100%;
}

The question I have is where do I begin to add the new form field!?

Many thanks.

Steve
