I was hoping to use S-Drive forms but it needs a feature update. In the forms I need to be hosted I added datepicker javascript to make the forms more usable (eg one cannot pick neither a past date nor a date beyond 1 year from today). It would be great if S-Drive supported forms that have been made using the web form builder but also supplemented by a script.

I guess I'm also requesting that the web form builder support some simple datepicker functionality like noted above. Love the form builder but it needs a boost.

Hi Dave,
I have several forms with custom datepickers on S-Drive. What are you actual in need of?
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Here's my S-Drive site with
examples of what can be accomplished in VSD.

Hmm. I made an inquiry because I need some forms hosted and was told "Forms on S-Drive do not support custom scripting. So if you added that javascript, you'll need to use a third party hosting provider."

I have forms that work and were made with Web Form Builder. Thanks to a post from you in the past I set up a form for a library outreach program: http://mcdl.info/educator/educator2018/ It works fine but it needs to be hosted.

So S-Drive does support custom scripting?

You can use JQuery
Here's just one of my forms that I disable Friday and Sat.

Does pasting that into an element on a given form remove the need to edit the resultant HTML file?

Below is the code that I add to the form.
<script>
$( function() {
$( "#date1,#date2,#date3,#date4,#date5,#date6,#date68,#date_assigned,#date_due,#date_needed" ).datepicker({
dateFormat: "mm/dd/yy",
minDate: 0,
maxDate: 365,
});
});
</script>

Is that a question or a statement?

Question: Does pasting that into an element on a given form remove the need to edit the resultant HTML file? I added the script since I should have in the first post. If there's no editing necessary after creating the form, then I'll see if I can piece together the necessary changes using your example. Thanks.

You can use an html element as I did on S-Drive to customize the datepicker. The best thing to do is try it and see if it works. If it works locally within the Form Builder preview it should work on S-Drive.

Thanks. I'll give that a try. I'm not familiar with the way you have coded it, but I'll work on going backwards from my working javascript code. Thanks again. BTW saw your web site example and am jealous of being so close to Bell's.
