I have a form on my website which if all the correct fields are filled out and the credit card type is selected should open up a fancybox, but for some reason it's not working.

My site is here - http://www.urlgone.com/d391ad/

This is my form validation script:

$("#form1").validate(
	{
		errorLabelContainer: $(".errors"),
		rules: {
			totalSum: {
				required: true,
				min: 1,
				number: true
			}
		},
		invalidHandler: function(form, validator){ 
		$.scrollTo( '#form1', "slow");
     }, 
	  submitHandler: function(form) {
		  if ($("#credit").attr("checked")) {
			var tot = $("#totalSum").val();
			var charge = ((tot / 100) * 2.75).toFixed(2);
			$(".cc-tot").html('£' + (+tot + +charge));
			$("#trigger").fancybox({
				closeClick  : false,
				helpers     : { 
				overlay		: {closeClick: false}
				}
			}).trigger('click');
		  } else {
			form.submit();
		  }
		},
     focusInvalid:false
	});

Open in new window


Can anyone please help?

Thanks,

Chris

Either use e.preventDefault() at the beginning or use return false at the end, in your validate function.

e.preventDefault() submits the form without the fancybox and return false appears to do nothing.

Ok
Your fancybox is just?
<a id="trigger" href="#cc-warning"></a>

I'm not familiar with appending a trigger to the fancybox, normal usage is just
      $("#trigger").fancybox({
            // effects etc
      });

Yes, it basically just fires a trigger to open it automatically.

You seem to have some conflicts with scripts.js and jquery.validate.js and fancybox.
Trying to find it now.

In scripts.js you have
$("#frmreg").validate();

frmreg doesn't exist - this breaks the js

I've taken that line out and it's still the same?
