Change date field so customer must choose one

6 0 0

Hi all,

I need to change a field on my productss pages.

Where it says to select delivery date it defaults to the first availible date, I need this to default to "Select Delivery Date", and then force the customer to choose one.

This field also needs to be Mandatory

Any ideas?

Hello, @lunchwithcrunch 

Hope you are doing great on these crazy times!

You can do this, but you would need to know a little bit of JS and Liquid to do it. The first that you need to do is create a script that a field and make the validations for the fields so it would prevent weird behaviors. 

Feel free to reach me out, i would gladly work with you! Email me

I've done something similar, though on our store we are collecting the delivery time for the whole order on the cart page rather than per-product as you seem to be doing. 

Things I needed to do:

1) Find the start of the existing form in the theme's section file and remove the 'novalidate' attribute:


    {%- comment -%} Customisation: removed "novalidate" from the form to force entry of the pickup time {%- endcomment -%}
    <form action="{{ routes.cart_url }}" method="post"  class="cart">


2) Make the default entry in the selection list completely blank so it fails validation until the user selects something.  Note that I put the whole <select> into a snippet file included into the original theme with {% render %}.

3) Make the other <option> lines  list have the 'selected' attribute if they matched the existing value of the cart attribute I use to hold the value.  This will be a bit different for you with per-product attributes rather than cart attributes.
