Contact Us Feedback Android Tutorial

A couple of days ago we presented Contact Us Feedback Primer Tutorial as shown below … and said …

Maybe you remember reading about the recent Feedback functionality here at RJM Programming when we presented Feedback Email Attachment Iframe Tutorial. It struck us that it would be good to extend the “Contact Us” webpage here at RJM Programming by adding a “Feedback” form to the “Contact Us” now presented via an HTML select “dropdown” element.

… well, we discovered down the track that the behaviour of the HTML a tag’s mailto: href parameter navigation needs to be nuanced for Android (mobile) usage.

A bit of reading on this lead us in one direction and the useful link pulled us completely back into a good line, thanks, via the advice …

window.top.location = “http://example.com”;

… but, for us, that goes (something like) …


window.top.location = "mailto:fill.in@email.address?subject=blah&cc=&bcc=&body=Lots%20Of%20Blah";

… presumably to get the external Android Mail app into the picture. On the way this link was useful, also, so, thanks.

Trap for young players? (Am blushing)

So for feedback functionality what changed for this Android fix (which also has trouble, perhaps, with inhouse Javascript functions called “capture”?!) was …

So … pleeeeease don’t fall in the trap, like me?!

Contact Us Feedback Primer Tutorial

Maybe you remember reading about the recent Feedback functionality here at RJM Programming when we presented Feedback Email Attachment Iframe Tutorial. It struck us that it would be good to extend the “Contact Us” webpage here at RJM Programming by adding a “Feedback” form to the “Contact Us” now presented via an HTML select “dropdown” element.

You can see the gist of what is involved with today’s tutorial picture for the creation of a short worded feedback email, via your default email client (ie. an HTML a mailto: link is used), perhaps regarding a tutorial here at this blog, which can be chosen via an HTML select “dropdown” element populated from the RJM Programming Landing Page, the logic for which you can read about with Client Pre-emptive Iframe Crontab Curl Rotated Report Tutorial. As you would glean from this blog posting title, what we are involving here is …

    1. WordPress Blog’s MySql database
    2. curl call of PHP to extract blog posting information
    3. crontab scheduled execution of PHP to assemble this data into an updated HTML select “dropdown” element in the RJM Programming Landing Page
  • an HTML iframe element loads the Landing Page and the crontab/curl inspired PHP/MySql data is extracted (at that iframe’s onload event) and reworked to the purposes of this Feedback functionality

So what changed here?

  • Contact_Us.html changed in the bold ways below …

    <div id="id4" style="height: 36px; left: 17px; position: absolute; top: 304px; width: 674px; z-index: 1; " class="style_SkipStroke_3">
    <div class="text-content style_External_674_96" style="padding: 0px; ">
    <div class="style_2">
    <!--p style="padding-bottom: 0pt; padding-top: 0pt; " class="Caption">Contact Us at RJM Programming</p-->
    <div style="padding-bottom: 0pt; padding-top: 0pt; " class="Caption"><select id=mysel onchange=" var huhs; var dds=document.getElementsByTagName('div'); for (var idds=0; idds<dds.length; idds++) { huhs=dds[idds].innerHTML.split('<div '); if (huhs.length == 1) { huhs=dds[idds].innerHTML.split('<img '); if (huhs.length > 5) { dds[idds].style.display='none'; } } } document.getElementById('mycrawler').style.display='none'; document.getElementById('widget2b').style.height='500px'; document.getElementById('widget2-frame').height='500px'; document.getElementById('widget2-frame').style.height='500px'; document.getElementById('widget2-frame').style.zIndex='5'; document.getElementById('widget2-frame').src=this.value; "><option value="http://www.rjmprogramming.com.au/Contact_Us_files/widget2a_markup.html">Contact Us</option><option value="http://www.rjmprogramming.com.au/HTMLCSS/feedback.html?contact=contact">Feedback</option></select> at RJM Programming</div>
    </div>
    </div>
    </div>
  • feedback.html HTML and Javascript feedback functionality changed from last time in this way
  • world.js external Javascript annotation functionality changed from last time in like this

Maybe this is food for thought for your own “Contact Us” page, perhaps second only to “Landing Page” in popularity on today’s websites of the “net”.
