View Full Version : The Problematic Code From Hell!!!

Feb 24th, 2007, 07:18 PM
I'm trying to do a simple basic thing: redirect to a URL after the form is correctly validated and submitted...
I've tryed everything... but I never get the 3 things done at once!!!!
That is:

- validating the form
-submitting it to my email
-redirect to a new URL


here is the code (part of it ofcourse) :

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<title>Formulario de acreditaçao de imprensa</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/JavaScript">

function MM_findObj(n, d) { //v4.01
var p,i,x; if(!d) d=document; if((p=n.indexOf("?"))>0&&parent.frames.length) {
d=parent.frames[n.substring(p+1)].document; n=n.substring(0,p);}
if(!(x=d[n])&&d.all) x=d.all[n]; for (i=0;!x&&i<d.forms.length;i++) x=d.forms[i][n];
for(i=0;!x&&d.layers&&i<d.layers.length;i++) x=MM_findObj(n,d.layers[i].document);
if(!x && d.getElementById) x=d.getElementById(n); return x;

function MM_validateForm() { //v4.0
var i,p,q,nm,test,num,min,max,errors='',args=MM_validateForm.arguments;
for (i=0; i<(args.length-2); i+=3) { test=args[i+2]; val=MM_findObj(args[i]);
if (val) { nm=val.name; if ((val=val.value)!="") {
if (test.indexOf('isEmail')!=-1) { p=val.indexOf('@');
if (p<1 || p==(val.length-1)) errors+='- '+nm+' must contain an e-mail address.\n';
} else if (test!='R') { num = parseFloat(val);
if (isNaN(val)) errors+='- '+nm+' must contain a number.\n';
if (test.indexOf('inRange') != -1) { p=test.indexOf(':');
min=test.substring(8,p); max=test.substring(p+1);
if (num<min || max<num) errors+='- '+nm+' must contain a number between '+min+' and '+max+'.\n';
} } } else if (test.charAt(0) == 'R') errors += '- '+nm+' is required.\n'; }
} if (errors) alert('The following error(s) occurred:\n'+errors);
document.MM_returnValue = (errors == '');

where exactly is the redirection code?

Feb 25th, 2007, 10:17 PM
is not in that code I wrote, all the attempts faiiled:

I triyed a delayer on submit:

<script type="text/javascript">
function delayer(){
window.location = "../javascriptredirect.php"
<form onSubmit="setTimeout('delayer()', 5000)">
<h2 >Prepare to be redirected!</h2>
<p>This page is a time delay redirect, please update your bookmarks to our new


I tried basic one:

<script type="text/javascript">
window.location = "URL"

I tried an hidden code.... and nothing.... or doesen't work or works for it self and neutralizes the other codes (submitting to my email and validating)
