Ajax :: Dynamically Update Contents Of Div Based On Form Fields
Jun 5, 2009
Currently, I have a php form with various inputs, and a div where I am embedding an (initially) empty open flash chart object.Right now, I am calling a php file on the submit of the form, which takes the form data, calls a python script to process the form data, and then creates an open flash chart object using the data the python script returns.There are a few problems with this:
1. When the submit on the form is called, it goes to a different page where the chart is displayed, when I would really just like to update the contents of the chart div where I initially embedded the empty chart.
2. The processing of the form in the python code can take some time, so what I would really like is to have the chart "check" the output of the python script periodically and update the chart each time, adding the new data points to the old ones.
I was wondering if there is a way to have a page with a starting price of $299 (lets say a basic vacuum) then below that are 20 or so customizable add-ons to choose from through simple checkboxes. That (to me) should be easy enough, but I would love to have the grand total at the bottom of the page be updated in real time as the user checks or unchecks certain add-ons (kind like how apple.com does it).
What is a good starting point for this, and would it be possible to send out the order as an email with the total price sent to the business owner.

I am trying to create a web page in which the contents of one selection list depends upon which element in another selection list is chosen, but where the information to populate the first selection list comves from an SQL database on the web server.
There are a couple of these situations in my application but, for example, the first list might be a list of counties, and the second list a list of states/provinces. Obviously the names of counties depend upon which state/province is chosen, but there are too many possibilities to be able to embed them within the web page itself. So when the user selects a state/province I need to go to the server to ask for the list of counties.
If there is a web site that addresses this sort of thing, I would appreciate any pointers.
The number of fields for each block varies because the page is constructed by a server function. What I want to implement is move up and a move down buttons on each block to move what the user has entered in say, block 4, to block 3 (and move the block 3 contents to block 4). And the contrary too.
I need to make a form in which I have to enter upto 20 email addresses. But I want to show only 5 fields first and then an Add More button. Upon pressing the Add More button it should add another field into the form and displayed. I have seen this type of thing on several websites but don't know how to do it.
The site I am working on has a few forms that allow the user to add new form fields (textbox, textarea, etc.) dynamically. I am using a structure smiler to: <form> <label>Name : </label> <input type = "text" / > <label>Age : </label> <input type = "text" /> <span id = "add_field"> Add Field </span> </form>
Below is the html and js I have so far to dynamically place form fields on the form when a certain radio button is marked (Fixed hours). Problem is I can't get the fields to go away if the other radio button is marked (Variable hours). Solutions on what code my js needs to remove the fields when the opposite radio button is marked?
I need to be able to change the fields of a form based on a drop-down list. Like if someone picks option A field 1 shows and if they change it to option B field 1 and 2 show up without reloading the page.
If you need me to explain more I will try to do a better job. If I could be pointed in the general direction that would be great, I dont exactly need to be spoon-fed, although I do like spoons if you catch my drift .
I have a form with 3 fields that will allow a user to search a database of clients by either name, email, or client id number. However, I would like the user to only be able to put information in one field. It can be done be either deleting the other two fields when the user inputs information into a different field, or by disabling the other two fields when the user enters information in one (and also frees up all fields if the user ends up deleting what they entered).
Below is a start of what I had. Basically, it will disable the fields when I mouse out of them but won't re-enable them when I mouse back in. As you can see, I tried various combinations of events. (My code below also doesnt null out the other fields when the user opts to use a different field than the one they first began to enter info in).
My client wants to upload multiple files to the server using the FILE type input of the form. Their requirement says that once they click the browse button of the FILE INPUT type , besides file browsing window another FILE FIELD is added at the bottom of this one. and when the user clicks the browse button of second, it adds another until the user clicks the UPLOAD button to submit the form.
I dont know it is possible or not ???? if yes then please tell me how.
The alternate way is to give drop down menu with number and when the USER chooses certain number then ..that amount of FILE FORM FIELDS will be added. i.e if user chooses 3 then three file fields are there to upload 3 files at a time.
I have written a script that i am pasting here, but when i choose the drop down menu and select value the FILE FIELDS are shown but the original drop down menu vanishes.. Please review my code and modify it or refer some script to me.
IF The first choice is possible, i mean adding each FILED by browse button click , then tell me its code, other wise modify this code that i am pasting or give me some link to download a premade script. Code:
I'm trying to get the two followup questions underneath the checkbox to show up only if someone places a check there, but for some reason the way I've got it set up now it's simply hiding the area I want to show up altogether, and the checkbox has no effect on it.
Rather than waste tons of space pasting it here, here's the pastebin: [url]
Alternatively here is the live version:[url]
I'd prefer to have the form collapse when the additional questions are hidden, though if i can get this working at all.
I am trying to assign values to a bunch of form fields. However, I don't want to loop through EVERY field in the form, just a specific subset of fields. The fields I am trying to change are all named similarly myField1, myField2, myField3.So, my thought is that I would like to use a for loop and loop through the appropriate fields by simply incrementing a variable and appending it to the end of the string "myField" in order to change the appropriate field.How can I evaluate "myField + iterator" into a useable reference to change the value of said field?
So, I have a form that, when the user clicks on a link, uses J/S to generate extra form fields for extra information. I can retrieve the value of the dynamically generated fields using $_POST in I.E., but it doesn't work in Firefox (no value is returned). Retrieving values for the static fields is fine in both I.E. and Firefox.
Here's the code - is there a function I'm using that could be replaced with something more friendly to Firefox?:
I have a form that collects information about up to 5 items. I would like the user to be able to select from a drop down menu how many items for which they want to compare information, and then have the form change the number of input fields accordingly.
In other words, if the user selects enter info for 3 items, then input fields for only 3 items are shown, if they change it to 4 items, then a fourth column shows up in the table with the appropriate input fields.
I'm having some trouble with my dynamically generated form fields.
As you can see I'm generating new form fields, but the problem lies within the grade field. I have it set up now so that when you change the grade the color of the <select> box changes relative to the grade. A-D are green, F is black with white text, Not Taken is just regular white with black text and In Progress is lightly shaded grey.
I want it so that each one can be changed individually, but I can't seem to be able to figure out how to do that. Heck if you change the first one's grade field, that colour follows the rest of the clones.
This is the jQuery I'm using to change the color of the thing.
I am not new to jQuery but I just want to ask the best way to approach this. Basically I have a textfield in which the user is going to type in a number (for example 20) and after this textfield lose focus jQuery will be triggered to create whatever number of textfields the user put before (in this case 20).
So, to illustrate: How many users do you have: [ 2 ](and after the field above lose focus, the below will be generated)
I want to use .ajax instead of the following js function so that I can use the event handlers to update the DOM after changing the contents of a jQuery UI tab. What happens now is that the DOM only contains the first loading of the JQuery UI tab (fragment-3 in this example). Once the tab is changed by the displayfrag3 function (a table is rewritten with new <td ids>) the DOM doesn't see any new id tags so "on click" functions using the new ids don't work.
My Call to this Function:
My Attempt at using jQuery .ajax:
What is the call statement for this and how do I pass a variable to it?
Could someone show me the correct jQuery .ajax code and explain how to add the success handler to update the DOM.
Instead of implenting a prefabricated calender on my site, I tried a different route. I built a simple form where the user picks time and date. Now, what I need to do is to secure a dynamic changing of the <select> tag carrying the values for days in the month, based on what information the user has put into the <select> tag carrying the values for the month. This should be logical, as it should not be possible to choose ie. the 31st of June, as there's no such date. I hope you understand what I need.
