Every time that you post a problem, PLEASE add the Joomla and the extension's versions and revisions (for example: Joomla 3.3.6, Contact Enhanced 3.3.5), PHP version and Server's Operating System. If you only manage only one site it is easier if you edit your profile and just add that information to your signature. Don't forget to add a detailed description of the problem. If possible, write down all steps to simulate the problem.

Before submitting a new post, PLEASE make sure you are running the latest version, test in different browsers (IE, FF, Chrome,..) and clear Joomla and browser's cache after every change you make.

Also, most questions are already answered in our FAQ and in iFAQ and Contact Enhanced documentation pages.

Javascript Samples to be used with the CSS Custom field

9 years 5 months ago #12140 by douglas

From time to time people ask me how to create Javascript behavior to Custom Fields; I've recently added the JS Custom Field in Contact Enhanced in order to make it easier to inject JS code in the form;
JS Custom Field:

I'll update this thread every time I create a new script. Please feel free to add your script here as well;

In Contact Enhanced for Joomla 2.5+ there is an option in the Multitext custom field to limit the number of characters; I've not added this feature in Contact Enhanced for Joomla 1.5 due to a limitation in the Validation script used there. However you can add a similar behavior by adding the script below to the JS Custom Field. This script requires MooTools upgrade plugin enabled;
window.addEvent('domready', function(){
	// Configuration
	var maxlen	= 300; // Number of characters allowed
	var fieldID	= 'cf_50'; // Custom Field ID: In this case the Custom Field ID is 50 
	var charsLeftMsg= ' characters left'; // Characters Left Message
	// Configuration ends;
	var field	= $(fieldID);
	// Inject new HTML;
	var charsLeft	= new Element('div', {id: fieldID+'-chars-left'});
	var charsLeftBox= new Element('span', {id: fieldID+'-chars-left-field'});
	var charsLeftTxt= new Element('span', {id: fieldID+'-chars-left-txt'});
	// Add behaviour to field
	field.addEvent('keyup', function(e) {
		new Event(e).stop();
		var fieldValue		= field.get('value');
		fieldValue		= fieldValue.substring(0, maxlen);
		field.set('value', fieldValue);
		var fieldLength = fieldValue.length;
		charsLeftBox.set('text', (maxlen - fieldLength) );

All the best,
