I have a competition on my weather forum and need to know how to do the following. The competition invites peeps to put in a forecast for a specific location - five days in advance. For the day - i.e. Day 7 would be January 7th - there is a drop down box. However, the box has numbers 1 to 31 and this can be confusing. What I need to do is have the first box show a day from 5 days in advance - i.e. Today is day 3 so the first box would need to say day 8. And so on. This would need to automatically change each day. i'e. Tomorrow the first box would be day 9.
Can this be done? Would be grateful for a reply as to how it can be...

This could be done using external Javascript on a drop down box created in myContactForm.com. Unfortunately, there is no built in method of doing this within myContactForm.com.

Can you guide me to somewhere that will explain what I need to - What I need write and where to place it?

I cannot write a custom piece of Javascript for you. If you do some searching around Google, and/or post to a Javascript help board, I'm sure you can get it working.

Thanks for that Nick. I have been to the library and borrowed a book called ' Javascript demystified' so am hoping after a careful read and learning how to write it the script I maybe able to do what I need to do... Smile

Great! I'd be interested in seeing what kind of creative solution you can come up with.

You could always try dyamicdrive.com for javascript. It's a great resource.
