Can't install any of templates

User moon_406 2012-04-02 13:50:15

I have Joomla 1.5.26 installed, installed the Calc Builder Component and Module, but cant install the model files. Getting the following error:

Warning: simplexml_load_file() : /tmp/phpSgWubU:1: parser error : Start tag expected, 'odels/utility.php on line 421

Warning: simplexml_load_file() : ^ in /home/exlifn/public_html/demo/administrator/components/com_calcbuilder/models/utility.php on line 421

Fatal error: Call to a member function children() on a non-object in /home/exlifn/public_html/demo/administrator/components/com_calcbuilder/models/utility.php on line 440

Any advice ?

do you mean the example calculators?. Please double check you have downloaded the file example regarding your calcbuilder version from the download area (examples are different for version 2.0 of calcbuilder). To install the examples you must first unzip the file, to get a

(example).xml file.

Then you should go to your calcbuilder extension at joomla admin and use 'import' option where you should select the xml of the example to load.

Hope this helps, regards

I want to make a calculator for leasing but I need to have Name, e-mail, and phone fields on the form.

I want the folowwing forms to be published:

value of leased equipment (VL)
down payment (value in €)
years (Y)
lease fee (%)
Calculate button

Result must display:
montly payment (in €)
lease fee (in €)
total cost of lease

Can u help me with a template for this ?

we suggest to import the more basic example from the download area,
First steps: Adding two numbers

You can also check how all types of values are recovered from user input checking this example:

Recover selected values from all input types

and to write the calculations, you can start with
4 basic operations & formatting numbers to understand the sintax and then check more complex examples like Financial amortization or estimating business cards price.

Any of these examples can be used as a template for you to add your own fields and start building your calculator.

Hope this helps, best regards
