Update the NAME attribute of FORM

  1. Hi :)

    I am trying to integrate an eInk signature from a company that does secure forms. I've already got the form POST uri updated to work with this system, which was awesome. I haven't been able to find the answer to this, though:

    I need to be able to add some javascript to the form (just gonna use an HTML block, no big) - but that javascript needs to use the form NAME to work. And the GFs don't seem to HAVE a name attribute. I tried adding one with jQuery but I'm not great with it, and while I am not getting any errors (weird?) it's also not working (boo).

    Trying to use this:

    <script type="text/javascript">
    jQuery("#gform_3").attr('name', 'gf_ellie');
    </script>

    Form is here:

  2. All the forms have an ID already. Can you modify the JavaScript to use the ID rather than the name? If not, can you add that jQuery to the page so we can take a look? I don't see it there now.

  3. I wish - I don't have control over the script, it's with a third-party service my client is using for e-Ink signatures on the forms.

    Code should be right in the head now.

  4. Hi rentageekmom,

    Try wrapping your code in jQuery(document).ready():

    [js]
    <script type="text/javascript">
    jQuery(document).ready(function(){
        jQuery("#gform_3").attr('name', 'gf_ellie');
    });
    </script>

  5. Thanks!! That inserted the name. I need to wrestle with the other script now - it tries to execute before the NAME is inserted - but I can contact their support for that. Thank you so much!
