terms of agreement check box

Hello,
I have a client who would like to have a pop-up window that reads something to the effect of “I have read the terms of service and by clicking this box I agree to all of the terms.” The user would have to check that box before they could download a form fillable word document. Got the word doc. done, but I have no idea how to create the “terms of service” check box. Any ideas.
Thanks,
Rich Gannon

Use a form… with the checkbox being required input. Almost all form CGI’s allow you to specify two different redirects (one if required input is met, and another if it is not).

Hi Richard,

To add to that, you can use the Validate Form Suite here:

This will allow you to say that you require certain criteria to be met
before the form is sent. There are instructions of use in the archive.

If you need a script to crunch the form data then look no further than
here:

or here:

I hope this helps.

Thanks for the help. Client now doesn’t want a validation box.

Hi Rich

Has your Client considered:

What if the viewer doesn’t have or doesn’t want to use Word?

I use a pdf form that can by emailed once completed.

Not have or use Word? Preposterous!

They must be some kind of weirdo Mac users… :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I have- in fact- asked them if they want to use a form fillable .pdf but they like having all of their stuff returned to them in Word. It is fairly low traffic operation and I think 90% of the people will have the organization fax a hard copy of the form…old school style.

There is always the issue of Word Macro viruses being transported in this way.

Some of the larger organisations prohibit download of Word docs because of security issues.

Personally, if I get sent a Word doc from a company when requesting information about something I will refuse it and tell them I don’t have Word. Please send a pdf instead.

But that is just me making a point!

And I certainly don’t want to have to pay money to upgrade to the latest version of Office when they start using the new docx Word file type.

Well it appears that I wont have to just yet as there is an Open XML File Format Converter which has just become available to convert those pesky docx files for free.

I know it’s an old thread, but I am working on something similar right now… Can it be done with PHP Feedback or with PHP easiForm only?

Many thanks in advance,

Marcus

You can make fields ‘required’ when using the SendForm action (including check boxes) using Html5 and also using the Validate suite of actions
