Visitor log

This is the first working draft of a visitor sign-in log for my workplace.

The final copy includes more error-checking for signing out, extra code to deal with the possibility that the app is left running over midnight and a fair bit of prettying up.

The code

visitors.js
//Visitor sign-in app by Steve Garman
//saves one day's data as a JSON string in a file
 
//Global variables
var recArray = [], fileFolder = "/sdcard/sjgApps/", jsonPath;
//Global layouts and controls
var scrollr, layScroll, edtName, edtOrg, edtVehicle,edtReason;
 
//Called when application is started.
function OnStart(){
  //file variables
  var d = new Date();
  jsonPath = fileFolder + "vistorBook" +
     d.toISOString().slice(0,10).replace(/-/g,"_")
