[SOLVED] WF v7.6.8 Composer-designed html form triggers errors in WF v7.7.02
I opened, made some minor changes and saved a WF v7.6.8 Composer-designed html form in WF v7.7.02 Composer. Now when I run the form, I get JavaScript errors and the form does not get displayed.

Errors:

I suppose I can delete the calendar controls and re-add them, but that doesn't guarantee solving the problem.

I'm beginning to think that there are fundamental differences in these html pages.

The Javascript libraries have difference revisions.

rltcalendarInit.js from 1.11.2.1 (7.6.?) to 1.19 (7.7.?)

ibirls3.js from 1.113.2.1 (7.6.?) to 1.318 (7.7.?)

I would suggest removing and re-adding the control.

It's possible that opening them in the 7.7 HTML Composer and saving them suffices.

I did open it in v7.7.02 and that's why the errors are occurring - I'll try to remove and re-add the Calendar controls.

Hi Francis,
I am getting this too after copying code generated by 7.6 composer to 7.7 and tweaking. Even without tweaks it still triggers an error. I am therfore wondering whether removing and re-adding the calendar controls did the trick ?
Regards,
Ian

Ian, I unfortunately cannot remember.

More often than not, when something inexplicable happens in HTML Composer (a more than seldom occurrence for me), I create a new HTML page.

Sorry I cannot be of more help.

Regards,


Francis

Thanks anyway Francis. I will just remove and re-insert the calendar options and see what happens.Ian

Hi Francis (and others experiencing this),

I discovered that the error message
'Message: '0' is null or not an object'
pointed me to a line in my code that said
'list[0].selected=true;'

Took a punt and removed it as it was in a function and I couldn't really see what it did - generated by HTML Composer. My code then worked fine. The calendar stuff was a red herring as it followed this error. So once the error was removed the calendar issues disappeared.

Cheers,
Ian
