When Option In Select Field Is Chosen, Make Input Appear?

Apr 14, 2009

I need a script that when an option is selected in a drop-down box (select tag) an input tag appears and I am still pretty basic at javascript.

I was using a script that worked fine but because the variable of the option that makes the script go required the "|" character, it interfered with a PHP script in my document and screwed everything up.

JQuery :: Auto-select A Select Box On Postback With User's Selection

Feb 12, 2010

I have a ColdFusion page with a select drop down list. On submit, I'm storing the value in a cfparam and trying to use jQuery to auto select that particular option. Currently I'm using :contains but this is unacceptable because it selects the last item that contains the cfparam.

$("option:contains('<cfoutput>#form.company_type#</cfoutput>')").attr('selected', 'selected');
Is there something like this:
$("option").equals('<cfoutput>#form.company_type#</cfoutput>')").attr('selected', 'selected');

[Code]....

I willconsider other alternatives to accomplishing my objective.

SELECT OnChange Auto Fill Other SELECT Boxes

Jul 25, 2002

I searched here and some other places on the net but cant find anything that suits my needs. I have a SELECT box with 3 values Code:

<form name="form1">
<select name="length">
<option name="length" value="none">--Select for All--</option>
<option name="length" value="5">--5 Days--</option>
<option name="length" value="7">--7 Days--</option>
<option name="length" value="10">--10 Days--</option>
</select>
</form>

OnChange, I want to invoke a function that auto populates the rest of the SELECT fields in the form. The select boxes will vary in quantity as the page is dynamic, but the values are always the same (like the code above).

Does this make sense?

I'm using Prototype and scriptaculous either, but here it is:

I have two select areas and scripts to transfer items between the two.
Everything works great in FF, but in IE when an option gets removed it
removes the entire select area. Has anyone ever seen something like
this before?

JQuery :: Select Dynamically An Option In A Dropdown Select?

Aug 11, 2010

According to [URL] intended way for jQuery to change dynamically the selected option of a dropdown select control isassigningthe desired text instead of the value. I found this way veryinconvenient (data structures usually deal with value codes, not value descriptions) and it seems to work only sometimes.

Trying different options I came out with this approach that seems to do the job so
far:

function setSelect(pID,pSelectedValue)
{
$('#'+pID + ' option:selected').removeAttr('selected');

2 Dropdown Menus - Make A Form Where The User Is Only Able To Select An Option From One Of The Drop Down Menus?

Feb 11, 2009

I am trying to make a form where the user is only able to select an option from one of the drop down menus and if they click both then submit an error should pop up telling them to select just one. Now I have found this code:

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript"'>
<!--
function validateForm(){[code]....

the first problem is that my menu must be named "id[2]2" which causes a problem due to the bracketed 2 and the 2 after. Is there any way around that?the second problem I forsee is that this will only work with 1 drop down box being unselected. I need a code that will give the warning if nothing is selected OR if something is selected in both drop downs.

JQuery :: Removing An Option From A Select Based On The Option Value?

Jun 21, 2010

I'm using the following code to remove an option from a select control based on a selection in a different select control and the option text in the select option that is being removed. The code works as I want it to, but I would prefer to use the option value for identifying the option to remove instead of using the option text. I've tried several different ways to do this, but can not find the proper syntax.

JQuery :: Select All / Select None *text* Links In A Form That Call A Jquery Function To Select All Or Select No Checkboxes?

Jun 16, 2011

I've seen a variety of implementations around that enable selecting all or no checkboxes by using a checkbox to toggle that choice. However, I'm trying to find a way like this: I have two text links on my page: Select All, and Select None. How can I get those links to call a jquery function to select all or select no checkboxes in my form? As a little food for thought:

<head>
$(function() {
//function for selecting all or none...is there a way to make a single function that passes in a parameter to differentiate between selecting all or selecting none, or do I need a separate function for both?[code]....

JQuery :: Create An "Add New Option" Option To A Select List?

Oct 12, 2009

I have a form that uses jeditable to edit-in-place several fields and select boxes. Everything is working great. Now I need to a way to add a new option to the select list. What I would like is the user select "Add New..." from the select list that would pop-up a dialog window where several fields are filled in. When the form is saved the select field is updated with the new ID and description. I use Facebox for pop-up windows to display notes when the user clicks on a topic. I know Facebox can be used to display a form. It would be ideal to use this ability when creating a new option for the select box.

Select Element - How To Auto-dropdown?

Jul 23, 2005

In our current application we have a page whose sole purpose for existence
is to permit the user to select from a list (subsequent to our login page).
We would like to have the list drop down automatically when the visitor
arrives at the page, perhaps by using the onLoad event to call the dropdown
code. The problem is, the click() event does not drop down the list, as I
would have thought it might.

I can successfully fire other methods using the object.method() syntax. Our
form is named "test," the select is named "sel1," and the code
document.test.sel1.focus() in fact focuses the control,
document.test.sel1.selectedIndex=2 selects the third item, etc. Given that,
I would have thought that document.test.sel1.click() would cause a similar
result to clicking the control, i.e., dropdown of the select. Instead, all
that happens is what appears to be a very quick redraw of the selected
value's text (i.e., it flickers slightly).

I've tried preceding the call to click() with a call to focus(), and vice
versa. No joy. I've Googled on several combinations of search terms, but
either there's no information on how to accomplish this or it was deeper
than the 3-4 pages I followed down into each of the search results.

Anybody know if it is possible to do what we want, and if so, could you
point me to a link where I can find sample source?

Getting IE6 To Auto-select An Item In A Dropdown

Mar 21, 2007

On this page (just a demo) I canít get IE6 to auto-select the first item
in the dynamically-generated drop-down menus. Well, that isnít entirely
true. Sometimes it works properly, but never on the first try. When it
fails, the error message it gives is:

"Cannot set the selected property. Unspecified error."

FF2, IE7, and OP9 all behave as expected. I have tried a variety of
workarounds to no avail. I don't have an exhaustive list of everything I
have tried, but it seems like I have tried a hundred ways of setting the
"selected" attribute.

The page uses jQuery 1.1.2. Currently the page is using...

$("#select-how option:first-child").attr("selected","selected");

....to auto-select the first item in the list.
