Validating Multiple Checkboxes In Form?

Feb 17, 2009

I have some checkboxes in a form that I'd like to validate (check to ensure that at least one has been ticked):
HTML Code:
<input type="checkbox" name="response[]" value="answer1" />answer1
<input type="checkbox" name="response[]" value="answer2" />answer2
<input type="checkbox" name="response[]" value="answer3" />answer3
<input type="checkbox" name="response[]" value="answer4" />answer4

The javascript below only works if I change my checkbox names to name="response" rather than name="response[]".
Code:
function validateform(){
var success = false;
for (i = 0; i < document.surveyform.response.length; i++){
if (document.surveyform.response[i].checked){
success = true;
}} return success;
}

I need to pass along multiple checkbox responses to my PHP script and therefore need to keep checkboxes named name="response[]". When I do this, I get the error "document.surveyform.response has no properties"
What change I can make to the javascript so that I can name my checkboxes name="responses[]" ?

Validating A Form With Multiple Field Conditionals?

Dec 8, 2009

I am somewhat a noob at js/jquery so I wasn't sure exactly how to do this. Think I just need a push in the right direction. Basically I'm trying to validate a form (jquery validation) with a couple of conditionals based on a selection box. So I have:

<form id="info" class="validate">
<select id="select">
<option value="senior">Senior Citizen</option>

[code]...

I'm trying to validate that if the user has selected "Senior Citizen" then their age must be 65 or older (and validate the adult/child ages as well).

Sum The Value Of Multiple Checkboxes In Form?

Dec 11, 2010

I am trying to sum the "value" of multiple checkboxes who's values are all numeric, and then alert via pop-up the value of the sum when a Sumbit button is clicked. I thought I figured out how to do it using some jquery, but for some reason the Submit button doesn't fire anything.

Heres the code.

HTML Code:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>

Validating Checkboxes By Value

May 3, 2006

I found some simple code to get a better understanding of validating checkboxes. It validates the checkboxs by their name. Is it possible to validate the checkboxes with the same name but different values? The name of the checkboxes will be an array containing the values of the checkboxes selected.

I have my html like so:
<input type="checkbox" name="stuff[]" value="1" onClick="countChoices(this)">
<input type="checkbox" name="stuff[]" value="2" onClick="countChoices(this)">
<input type="checkbox" name="stuff[]" value="3" onClick="countChoices(this)">

And the javascript where I edited "box1=", "box2=", "box3=" is like so:
function countChoices(obj) {
max = 2;

box1 = obj.form.1.checked;
box2 = obj.form.2.checked;
box3 = obj.form.3.checked;

count = (box1 ? 1 : 0) + (box2 ? 1 : 0) + (box3 ? 1 : 0);

if (count > max) {
alert("You can only choose up to " + max + " choices!
Uncheck an option if you want to pick another.");
obj.checked = false;
}}

How do I correctly create box1, box2, box3, in this case?

Validating An Array Of Checkboxes

Mar 14, 2006

What am I doing wrong here? Forgive me if it's blindingly obvious, but I can't get this to work:

HTML Code:

<html>
<head>
<title>test</title>
<script type='text/javascript'>

function editPhotos(numPhotos) {

for(var i = 0; i < numPhotos; i++) {

if(document.forms.boxOrder.photos[i].checked == true) {
alert('yes');
} else {
alert('no');
}
}

}
</script>
</head>
<body>

<form name='boxOrder'>
<input type='checkbox' name='photos[0]' /><br />
<input type='checkbox' name='photos[1]' /><br />
<input type='checkbox' name='photos[2]' /><br />
<input type='checkbox' name='photos[3]' /><br />
<input type='checkbox' name='photos[4]' /><br />
<input type='button' name='edit' value='Edit Selected'
onClick='javascript:editPhotos(5);' />
</form>
</body>
</html>

Validating Multiple Uploads

Jul 11, 2003

when uploading multiple files with php, one uses an array for the name of the file field like this: <input name="image[]" type="file" id="1" size="40">

Now I have some genius jscript that checks the file types of multiple upload fields. But it requires the name of each of the fields to be unique. Since all my fields have image[] for the name - the script breaks. If I name my fields with image1, image2, image3 etc, the jscript works.

In order to upload multiples, php requires the name of the field to be an array as above. I just need a little tweak to this jscript!

Here is the jscript. pretty simple, except for when the field is called using it's "name" property midway down. I tried using unique id's but this didn't seem to work - of course I might have messed it up. Code:

JQuery :: Validating Multiple Forms On Pages With Single Tag

May 27, 2011

It doesn't appear to be possible to validate multiple forms on a pages that only has a single <form> tag, using the JQuery Validation Plugin offered by Jörn Zaefferer. The reason I need to do this is because my pages are created with ASP.NET whose architecture generally calls for a single page-wide <form> tag. In my designs, I'd like to submit my data using a custom ajax call to a web-method, and link it to a click event on a button.

Below is an example:
<!
DOCTYPE
html
PUBLIC
"-//W3C//DTDXHTML1.0Transitional//EN" "[URL]" >
<
html
xmlns
=
"[URL]"
> .....

I'm not sure that I fully understand the documentation for the Validation plugin, but it doesn't seem like this is possible, as the plugin seems to need a <form> for each form.

JQuery :: Validation Question: Validating Multiple Email Inputs?

Feb 13, 2009

I am using the Validation plugin to validate a form that emails the current pages URL to the recipients entered in to the "email to" field. I want to validate that field for multiple emails addressed separated by commas...and ideas on how to do this? I'm a bit new to jQuery so I am a little confused how to approach this. I was thinking somehow altering the email function so that is parses the input and does a for each on every email address. Is this correct thinking? Is there an easier way to do this?

Multiple Checkboxes And Turning Them Off?

Jul 20, 2009

Hello...I assume this should be relatively simple but can't seem to figure it out and have searched all over the net.I have an .asp page that contains a form with multiple checkboxes for users to register for classes. When the classes fill up I want to be able to not allow them to register.

Right now I am doing the following:

function regclosed()
{
alert("Registration for this class has closed." + '
' + '
' + "Please select another class.");
this.checked=false;
}

Then for each checkbox I am using onclick = "regclosed()" The problem that I am having is that even though I only put the 'onclick' for certain checkboxes...as soon as I click a checkbox that has the regclosed() it clears every box that was checked - not just the one that has onclick="regclosed()"

Checking Multiple Checkboxes At Once?

Aug 4, 2001

I have a list of names with checkboxes in front of them. The list is generated from a database. So in a loop it would look something like this:

<input type=checkbox value='$userID' name='recipients[]'> $UserName

The name of the checkbox is a Array, because I want to pass the information on to another page, where the emails-addresses are used to send a mail.

the userID is also linked with the email-account of the user. What I want to do is to have a link, button or checkbox (which one is the easiest to implement) that checks all the checkboxes in the list at once. How do I go about this?

I have come up with the following, but this doesn't seem to work: PHP Code:

function CheckEm(cb_mail){
††for (var i = 0; i < document.myForm[cb_mail].length; i++)
††††document.myForm[cb_mail][i].checked = true;
}

<input type=checkbox onClick="CheckEm('cb_mail')">

JQuery :: Multiple Checkboxes Working Together?

Sep 17, 2010

I have 2 checkboxes that I want to slideDown/Up a div with. I can get 1 checkbox to do it perfectly fine...however, I can't seem to find any documentation or examples of doing it with two different checkboxes.It seems like there should an "if/then" or an "or" "and" type statement to make this happen but i'm extremely new to jquery and have no idea how the syntax is structured.Problem: Need two checkboxes to show same div... div needs to show even after one checkbox is unchecked after being checked itself.Code i've use to get one checkbox to do it: (chkframe = checkbox 1 id..... chkfound = checkbox 2 id)

$("#dropdown").css("display","none");
$("#chkframe").click(function () {
if ($("#chkframe").is(":checked")) {

Checkbox Validation For Multiple Checkboxes

Nov 1, 2007

I have a simple form which I'm trying to validate. I have around 8 checkboxes that the user has to agree with, and if they dont, they get the message saying "you did not accept the training princples, yada yada".

I also have a few text fields asking for their details.

Maybe I'm missing something simple here, but everytime I submit the form, it doesnt validate. Im not fantastic at coding, but I was hoping this would be quite straight forward. All I'm trying to do is get a message up if the user doesnt agree with all of the checkboxes. Code:

Script To Replace Multiple Checkboxes?

Feb 27, 2009

Is there some neat JavaScript script to replace multiple checkboxes? Let's say there are too many checkboxes in a form (for instance, tags when creating an article) and they take too much space. I would like them to be compressed into some small scrolling box. Not sure I have explained it very well but it's too late already :P

Validating A Form Within Itself?

Jan 30, 2011

I have a form that is passed to itself. I was just wondering if there was a way to get this to validate before it passed to itself.I was assuming that as the form doesn't properly submit, I could not use onsubmit="return sValidation()", so I have it on the buttons onclick. Correct assumption or not? Is there a way round this at all and to get it to validate?
