Trying to adapt my working email code to work on a different page... I have VERY little javascript experience...and don't know proper syntax.

I want to put this on a page that is created with a while loop (php) and has many members on one page. So it needs a unique identifier for the form (and I think each field in the form) so it will properly update back to the correct section of the while loop (instead of just the top one like it does now.).

I appreciate your assistance.

Javascript

var thisRandNum = "<?php echo $thisRandNum; ?>"; 

// Start Private Messaging stuff
$('#pmForm').submit(function(){$('input[type=submit]', this).attr('disabled', 'disabled');});
function sendPM ( ) {
      var pmSubject = $("#pmSubject");
	  var pmTextArea = $("#pmTextArea");
	  var sendername = $("#pm_sender_name");
	  var senderid = $("#pm_sender_id");
	  var recName = $("#pm_rec_name");
	  var recID = $("#pm_rec_id");
	  var pm_wipit = $("#pmWipit");
	  var url = "scripts_for_profile/private_msg_parse.php";
      if (pmSubject.val() == "") {
           $("#interactionResults").html('<img src="images/round_error.png" alt="Error" width="21" height="20" /> &nbsp; Please type a subject.').show().fadeOut(6000);
      } else if (pmTextArea.val() == "") {
		   $("#interactionResults").html('<img src="images/round_error.png" alt="Error" width="21" height="20" /> &nbsp; Please type in your message.').show().fadeOut(6000);
      } else {
		   $("#pmFormProcessGif").show();
		   $.post(url,{ subject: pmSubject.val(), email_body: pmTextArea.val(), senderName: sendername.val(), senderID: senderid.val(), rcpntName: recName.val(), rcpntID: recID.val(), thisWipit: pm_wipit.val() }, function(data) {
			   $("#pmForm").slideUp("fast");
			   $("#interactionResults").html(data).show().fadeOut(5000);
			   document.pmForm['. $id  .'].pmTextArea.value='';
			   document.pmForm['. $id  .'].pmSubject.value='';
			   $("#pmFormProcessGif").hide();
           });
	  }
}
// End Messaging

I know the '. $id . ' needs to go into the php / html sections but I am unsure the proper place to put them. I don't think this is hard...I think I am just JavaScript ignorant.

I meant that the '. $id .' needs to be captured by the javascript to identify which person the message and its related fields to work with (not php/html - its already there). How does the Jquery need to be altered to handle it?

I have modified all the html / php to include all id tags so I know which person it relates to but what is needed to alter the javascript? (section below) I have lost functionality of jquery reporting text back if subject is blank, if text area is blank, message sent, pmForm doesn't refresh, or clear the fields, and the loadergif... I think I am on the right track though... please assist. Thank you

I have modified the html / php again to include all id tags so I know which person it relates to and I added an $id(b) variable in the javascript sendPM(b) and related fields... My interactive div containers work...show / hide but I have lost functionality of jquery reporting text back if subject is blank("#interactionResults"+b), if text area is blank("#interactionResults"+b), message sent("#interactionResults"+b), pmForm doesn't refresh(document.pmForm.pmTextArea.value='';), or clear the fields(document.pmForm.pmSubject.value='';), and the pmFormProcessGif isn't showing now.

I think I am on the right track though... please assist. Thank you
