Chapter 6 Assignment

Recommended Posts

Hey Larry!

I've been working on my assignment and I've hit a roadblock. I was hoping you can take a look for me. I'm able to get the output out, however there are a few kinks i'm running into. I'm trying to sum up my output temperature numbers. Also the dates are suppose to go down 1 day from today each time you submit.

Thanks Larry!


<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>Average Temperatures</title>
    <!--[if lt IE 9]>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/form.css">
    <!-- employee.html -->
<form action="#" method="post" id="theForm">
   <fieldset><legend>Average Low Temperatures and high Temperatures</legend>
       <div><label for="lowtemp">Low Temp</label><input type="text" name="lowtemp" id="lowtemp" required></div>
       <div><label for="hightemp">High Temp</label><input type="text" name="hightemp" id="hightemp" required></div>
       <input type="submit" value="Add the Temperatures" id="submit">
   <div id="output"></div>
    <script src="js/temps3.js"></script>

// tasks.js
// This script creates an array using form data.
// Need to create an array of low temperatures:
var lowtemps = [];
// Function called when the form is submitted.
// Function creates a new object.
function process() {
    'use strict';
    // Get form references:
    var lowtemp = (document.getElementById('lowtemp'));
    // Reference to where the output goes:
    var output = document.getElementById('output');
    // Create the ouptut as HTML:
var message = ' ';
var today=new Date();
var curDay=' ';
if (!isNaN(lowtemp.value)) {
//add the temps to the array;
//Update the page
message = '<table class="left"><th>Date</th><th>Low Temperatures</th>';
for (var i=0, count=lowtemps.length; i < count; i++)
message+='<tr><td class="right">' + curDay + '</td> <td class="right">' + lowtemps + '</td></tr>'; //It is displaying the current day now but that needs to change each day. So re-examine the curDay variable..I actually do not use toLocaleDateString. I use a combination of getMonth() getDate() and getYear() and you can add or subtract 1 from each of those as needed.
{ // The low temp is invalid!
message = 'Please enter valid low temperatures.';
output.innerHTML = message;
// End of lowtemps IF.
//Return false to prevent submission:
return false;
} // End of process() function
// Initial setup:
function init() {
    'use strict';
    document.getElementById('theForm').onsubmit = process;
} // End of init() function.
window.onload = init;
