    will jotform.forms.js conflits with jquery.min.js

    Asked by roma_victa on June 23, 2014 at 04:25 AM

    The reason why i am asking is that i am trying to add a model dialog box. 
    But as soon as i add a new .js file and run it gives me an javascript runtime error.

    and is there any built in feature to add model dialog box with the theme selected in jotform?

    Where is the form embedded? Normally, script conflicts can be avoided by embedding the form using the iframe embed option.

    and is there any built in feature to add model dialog box with the theme selected in jotform?

    I am not exactly sure what you mean by this. Can you expound further?

    I have added the .js file of the forms directly to my website and added reference to it

    <script src="prototype.forms.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

    <script src="jotform.forms.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

    and i made some of the controls as server side as i need to do a lot of coding in the server side.

     

    The second point is that i need to add the a dialog box  and i was just wondering if you have any built-in functionality in your form maker that i can use.

    The lightbox solution offered by my colleague will only work for JotForm-hosted forms. The script calls the form from our server and loads it in a lightbox.

    Suffice to say, this solution will not work for you if you are using the form's full source code.

    Again, we would be grateful if you can share to us a URL where the form is embedded. If not yet live, kindly upload it somewhere so we can inspect your codes and find out what's causing the runtime error you were referring to on your original post.

    We would be very happy if you can help us help you.

    Thanks!

    Sure Neil, its not live yet and after seeing the ashwins solution i removed the dialog box and associated code. tried to associate  a sample light box to a button, Thinking if i can get values from the Text box in the lightbox to the server side for some processing then that will do.
