Passing booking state via form

Postby alastair » Thu Nov 08, 2012 12:26 pm

Firstly, thanks for the great script. :)

I have followed your instructions in the thread about forms to make my dates clickable to create a form with METHOD="get" which feeds into my ecommerce system. It's been working great.

Now I need to pass a little more data to my ecommerce system via that form and the URL query string; the data would be used to show different options to the user (further down the line in the purchase - and no longer in an ajax availability calendar page). The data I need to pass across is the booking state.

So I have been trying (and failing) to create a field in the form that picks up the booking state of the date clicked. Do you have any suggestions about how to achieve this please?

sorry for the delay on replying to you.

You will probably need to read the date "class".
The dates that have a booking state (ie. not "available" have the class name in them to be able to show the correct style.
This class can be accessed by using ssomething like:
Code: Select all
var state=this.get("class");

However the problem with this method is that you will also get the class "clickable" which is set for all the clickable dates.

I would suggest that you modifiy the PHP code that creates the calendar month and add a new data-type to hold just the booking state something like this (in the file ln 153):

Code: Select all
<li class="'.$day_classes.' "  id="date_'.$date_db.'" title="'.$date_format.$day_title_state.'" data-date="'.$date_format.'" data-state="'.$booked_days[$date_db]["state"].'">'.$day_counter.'</li>';

You could then access this data-type in the same way as the css class but without any extra data to worry about.

So, you will need to slightly modify the PHP code in the ac-includes > file and then alter your already modified JS code to get this new data and pass it to your bookings form.
