How do I display this External Javascript Order form.

Posted 07 July 2012 - 10:10 AM

I am new to this site and Javascript I have already made a website and want to display an order form using Javascript. The javascript is an external file for the html page and it will not display the pizza toppings or the checkboxes.
I have looked at the w3's website and cannot find anything too helpful and nothing else on the web is like mine to compare to.I would also like it to display back what has been selected. Thanks in advance for the help.
Here is the html

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en"><head>
<title> JP's Order Form</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
<style type="text/css">


<h1>JP's Pizza Place</h1>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="JP'spizza.css"/>
<img src="Pizza_man.gif" height="200" width="150" alt="JP's Pizza Place" />

<div id="content"><br />
<h2>Please Place Your Order Below</h2>

<script src="orderform.js"></script>
<form id="orderForm" novalidate>
<fieldset id ="myFieldSet">

here is the javascript code.
window.onload = init ;

function init() {
	var orderForm = document.getElementById("orderForm");
	orderForm.onsubmit = validateForm;
function objToppings(toppings,answers) {
	this.toppings = toppings;
	this.answers = answers;
function objOrder(title,toppings) {
	this.title = title;
	this.toppings = toppings;
function objTopping(topping) {
	this.topping = topping;
function objResponse(checked) {
	this.checked = checked;
function createOrderObjects() {	
	var toppingsOne= new objTopping("Large"); var toppingsTwo=new objTopping("Medium"); var toppingsThree=new objTopping("Small");

	var order = new objOrder("JP's Pizza Order Form", allToppings);
	return order;

function buildOrderForm() {

Hello there!

I would suggest you look into using jQuery for this particular problem, it's very simple to do so!

1. Include jQuery with the following script tag..

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.7.2/jquery.min.js"></script>

2. Presuming you want to fill myFieldSet with the contents of the external HTML page you could use the following code to do so..

$.get('myExternalHtmlPage.html', function(data) {

I havn't tested the above so I cannot say it will 100% work but I really can't see why it wouldn't. Tell us if you run into any problems and I will be more than happy to help.
