I am trying to develop an online application that utilzes a grid to save our
sales people weekly
We have a grid listing the days of the week going across the top Sunday -
Along the left side is hours of the day broken up in half hour increments. 16
In the gridl, we want the cells to include an image that has three color states
that are clickable.
For example 1 click is green 2nd click is red - 3rd click is blue each color
represents a dollar
I wrote up a simple javascrip that rotates three images. I probably need a way
to have an identifier
on each image in each cell so when I submit the entire form I know what state
the Image color was
We want our sales people to click the various grid images to the correct colors
by each half hour.
Then once the week is coded I need to save the grid contents (probably a large
array) into our
Any ideas how I can started on this
I'm not an expert, and the PHP princes may have a more elegant way, but I've
done this kind of thing before. I'd:
1. Create a separate hidden field for each cell which contains the
2. when your onClick handler switches the color, have it
set this.form.[hiddenFieldNameForTheCell].value to the color state value
(e.g., 1,2,3 or whatever).
When the form is submitted the values of the hidden fields will be sent up
in $_POST with all the others.
In the JSP world, you can return an array of values when a form with tabular
data was submitted. That would be cleaner than a jillion hidden fields, but
I don't know if that's possible in PHP.
You have kind of just re-invented the radio button...

You need at least four states - the fourth for "no dollars",
on vacation, sick, etc. Default all cells to "no dollars",
validation, such as confirming that they really didn't generate
any sales on Tuesday afternoon(e.g. when they were sick).
