    Why did you name both functions the same name? Where is dispTotal? plus why are you using .14 when your own equation says to use 1.14? You are also not doing your if statements correctly. Notice in the code below that I include the variable name again, not if/elif when testing values. Here is merging your two functions together and correcting some of the problems...

    def calculator():
            cost = input('Enter supplier cost: ')
            quantity = input('Quantity: ')
            # 1.14, not .14
            GandA = 1.14
            # Be sure to make sure cost and quantity are correct types
            suppliertotal = float(cost) * GandA * int(quantity)
            if suppliertotal >= 0 and suppliertotal <= 3000:
                    print(suppliertotal + 400)
            elif suppliertotal >= 3000.01 and suppliertotal <= 75000:
                    print(suppliertotal * .15)
    # Call the function

    If you run this with the cost of 10 and quantity of 10 and you will get your 514. Enjoy! :)

    Posted 23 Jul 2014

    new Date("lastvisit")???? I think you wanted to set a variable to the value returned by getCookie and then use that variable in the Date constructor.... but that is not what you are doing. You are just passing a string to the date object.

    Also you are using newDate("August 13, 2013 13:00:00");. I think you need a space between "new" and "Date". You are wanting to create a new Date object right? Or is that some custom defined function you created?
  4. In Topic: Android SQL Query Where Clause Issue

    Posted 22 Jul 2014

    Well what is the actual error? No error? Maybe the query just doesn't return any rows? Is the id variable what you expect? Usually if there is no errors and you are not getting anything it is because your query is correct, you are just asking for wrong data or data that just doesn't exist. I mean if you have 3 rows with ids 1 through 3 and you ask for id 5, it won't error, it will just return 0 rows.

  5. In Topic: Can not get thank you page to load

    Posted 22 Jul 2014

    The hidden field with the redirect will not cause it to redirect. This would only work if you controlled the script you submitted the form to and then could read that field and do the redirect. But my guess here is that you don't control that script you are submitting to. Let me know if I am wrong about that.

    If you don't control that script, then you are left with a few options for submitting this form. You could try a javascript submit and then do the redirect or perhaps you could see if there is a way that the person who controls the server side script can take a redirect parameter for you.

    As for other things of note, what is with all the non breaking spaces (&nbsp characters)? Remember you have CSS for styling things including padding and alignment.

    Greetings! Newish coder here. I came across your php histogram equalization code the other day and figured I'd try and draft something similar up in javascript. I feel like my code is sound, though something has to be wrong as the output of the image is black with some faint greens. I'm wondering if I am missing something from your original code. Consider perusing a jsFiddle?
