[Pro] Calendar

I am trying to set up a contact form, which requires extra information over a basic form
I have downloaded the calendar view from Actions Forge, does anyone know how to set it to just pop up when the mouse rolls over rather than clicking on it first, a lot of sites have a calendar graphic at the side, but I am not sure how to link this to make the calendar pop up.
It would also be good to know if anyone has created a CSS type menu in a contact form for selecting the pre selected text to go in to the text field, I am using Tick boxes at the moment, but I know that we will need to progress

Try setting the trigger event to Focus rather than Click. That will
handle any event that makes the field editable, because a click into a
text field also sends the focus event. It’s generally a very bad idea
to have a form field react to mouseover, because that event doesn’t
relate to being able to edit the field.

Thanks Walter, Is there no way of changing the colour on the text area, so that click can be written in it, When I downloaded the calendar, it had a link to camera view, that showed an embedded and a rollover calender, I would like to get the calender to pop up in some way if possible, its for our car rental site www.drivevehiclehire.co.uk, so we need to qualify the customer as much as possible and make sure the information is correct.

The Action only uses the form element mode of CalendarView (the
JavaScript library). There is another way to use it where you accept a
click on (or any other event on) a DIV (html box) instead. The result
of this is that the DIV is updated with the current date. But this is
useless in a normal form, because DIVs don’t get sent to the server as
part of a form request.

If you are looking to make a “self-label”, where the label or coach
text for your form field appears within the field itself, then first,
I would recommend simply adding a normal label to the field. That way
you do the least harm.

But if you really want to have this effect, try setting the Value of
the field (in the third tab from the left in the Inspector) to ‘Click’
if you like. The script will overwrite that value when the user
chooses a date. Since ‘Click’ doesn’t resolve to a real date, I am
pretty sure (you should test this) that it will default to the current
date. There is also a chance that it will default to the Unix Epoch:
January 1, 1970.

If you set the Event to Focus, then the user can navigate to the field
using the Tab or Return keys, just like any other form field, along
with the click, since click also fires the focus event.

Walt,
I using the Calendar View 2 with Freeway 6.1.2 and I am having an issue where it works on website and not another.

I’m baffled as to what may be going on.

Here are the two sites:

Does not work: http://christmastreefarm.us/wreathorderform-P.php

Works:
http://www.smartytest.com/carol/Blog/index.php

I do have a javascript accordion running on the Christmas Tree site but when I removed the mark up it still had no effect on the calendar pop-up.

Please help if you can.

You’ve included jQuery in the page where it doesn’t work. jQuery and Prototype cannot be together in the same page. (Well, they can, but it’s a very bad idea and it requires a bunch of extra work.) Figure out what you were using jQuery for, and replace it with a Prototype-based equivalent.
