Javascript / HTML problem

Hello,

See attached. This is a RADICALLY cut down version of the real page.

You can view it at rkassoc.org/FWLSCO/test_scrh.htm.

Try entering a value (anything) into the text field & click Go.

In FireFox, I get the attached error message. In IE, I get nothing. Chrome won't even open the page. Crazy!

Note that the form has onSubmit=return chk_vals().

Note the VERY first thing in chk_vals is an alert, which never displays.

I'm almost SURE there is something wrong with the Javascript, but I can't see it.

Can someone help?

Thanks

I realized AFTER I posted the source that the Javascript variable was not defined; I added that in.

Thanks

The problem seems to be with the php file called on submit, custs_wo2.php.

When called directly, Chrome spits out this:

The webpage at http://rkassoc.org/FWLSCO/installation/installation/installation/installation/installation/installation/installation/installation/installation/installation/installation/installation/installation/installation/installation/installation/installation/installation/installation/installation/installation/index.php has resulted in too many redirects.

Also, your onSubmit call seems to have an errant single quote:

onSubmit="return chk_vals()'"

What Kind of Coding Program is Right for You?

There are many ways to learn to code these days. From coding bootcamps like Flatiron School to online courses to totally free beginner resources. The best way to learn to code depends on many factors, but the most important one is you. See what course is best for you.

To Tommyboy,

I fixed the extra ', no change.

So I ripped out ALL the Javascript except the function chk_vals. It works perfectly.

That tells me there is some issue with the OTHER Javascript I took out, meaning starting with chk_vals_cd().

I gradually (one at a time) put back the other Javascript functions, testing each time until they were all back. That one (attached) works, but the original STILL fails. Both files have the SAME number of lines.

There must be some difference I cannot see.

Have you posted the original or are you referring to the one at this link?
http://rkassoc.org/FWLSCO/test_scrh.htm

The one at the link seems to work, at least in Chrome on a Mac.

The one in the link you posted is the original. It DOES NOT work in FF on a Win 7 PC.

The one I last attached (test_scrh1.htm) DOES work (for me).

I know this is all crazy, seems like magic.

I will probably just copy the javacsript out of the one that works & paste it into the "real" program. But with magic going on, I doubt that will work either.

Tried in Firefox v18 on Windows 7. Could not see any problem.

I was unable to recreate the problem in Firefox v18 on Windows 7 with the live link you provided, http://rkassoc.org/FWLSCO/test_scrh.htm. Are you on a different version of Firefox?

The code provided only tests one function, chk_vals(). The other functions are not being called. As long as there are no console errors, the presence of the other javascript code does not affect the chk_vals() function.

Not likely any other experts are looking at this question. You can try the "Request Attention" link if you would like other members to look at the question.

To TommyBoy,

You are right, it does work.  Somewhere I got confused with all the variations.
