Comment: Calculating the Additional Child fee.
When a child's name is filled, the appropriate 'under 15' control is made visible and is required.
Also, hidden values Child1, Child2 etc are set to 1 if filled. These are summed and the maximum of the sum-2 and zero is used to calculate the additional child fee. (This is equivalent to the number of children in excess of 2.)
The membership period in months is set to 6 if the chosen membership starts in January, (otherwise the default of 12 is used.) The final step in calculating the cost of extra children is the above number of Children more than 2 multiplied by either 6 or 12 Months divided by 12 multiplied by the annual rate for an extra child. This is like ((25)) where the parentheses are for show. There is one calculation for 6 month applications and one for 12.
Comment: Calculating the total amount
The joining fee is set in the Calculation of Joining Fee when necessary. It is like ((15)) where the brackets are just for show.
The membership fee is the sum of the calculation value selected from the Individual and Family Payment options less the Joining fee.
The Additional children fee has already been explained.
The Total payable is the sum of Joining, Membership, Magazine and extra children fees. These are calculated with the dummy condition of the membership fee being greater than zero.
Magazine SubscriptionsThere is a fee for magazine delivery by post. This is calculated and displayed below. (Magazine delivery by Post is only available within Australia).
All magazines are delivered in colour, except for the print version of Donkey Digest, which is Black and White.
Comment: Calculating Magazine delivery.
Both magazines (Brayings & Donkey Digest) must be delivered the same way. If to be delivered by post there is a fee. The amount is calculated hard coded in logic associated with "Magazine fee" where the dollars amount is enclosed in double brackets, like ((20)), for clarity. It is halved for 6 month memberships.
Until 1/7/2021, new members using the 6 month introductory rate will not have to pay the magazine fee. The hidden field Today has been added to manage this. If subscription field Months=6 and Today is less than 1/7/21 then Magazine Fee=0 otherwise it is calculated as $20 * Months/12 * DeliveryChoice, where the DeliveryChoice is 0 for email and 1 for post.
New logic is required to set magazine Fee=0 if Individual payment is Life Member.
I wish to apply for membership of the Donkey Society of Victoria Incorporated (A0000117Z). I understand that the Rules require new members' applications to be approved by the Committee, and once approved, membership acceptance will be published in Brayings.
By submitting this form, I confirm that I will abide by The Model Rules under the Associations Reform Act 2012 (Vic) and the polices adopted by the Society (available at www.donkey.org.au and which can be sent to me on request). I accept that future subscriptions are due by July 1st each year.
