I've been having problems getting my select option to change the options of another select option. I'm not much of a javacsript coder, so I'm at a lost.When I select the first option nothing appears in the second option.
I have a select and list of options. I have onkeypress event on the select input. As the user types I am trying to match the entered key strokes to the entries in the options and setting the selected value to the first match.
The problem I am facing is this: My options have 10000,0000, 10001, 1111,0001. Say I type 10, with less than one sec delay I consider them as one unit. So I try to find whether there are any entries in the options which starts with 10 and setting the value. But brower is considering the last entered key stroke , in this example 0 and setting the 0000 which is the first match.
Is there any way that I can stop the browser from doing that or any idea?
I've searched the web and every tutorial I can find says the same thing, and I am doing what they say, but it's inexplicably not working. Basically, I'm using a nested object to populate a select box using the new Option() method. Unfortunately, when I include the new Option line, it breaks the loop and does not add anything.
I have 8 pages that are very similar. The only difference is the select options with different group of names on each page. I am using a global script.Is there a way to have a central point with array of names that would write or function in the select option depending on the page.Example below
Is it possible to reorder the options in a form select box with jQuery, either by drag and drop or by up and down arrows/controls?I have a form select field that users use to choose an item to edit. I'd like users to also be able to reorder items in the select box to change their display order.In the end, I'll likely send order changes to the server via AJAX.
I currently have a form that the checkboxes are automatically populated. There is over 1000 checkboxes in total, 48 of these checkboxes are designed as main topics, when the checkbox for one of these 48 are ticked, it checks all sub catergory checkboxes as well as populates a <select><option> multiple list with its value. When unchecking one of the 48, it unchecks all its sub categories and removes them from the <select><option> multiple list.
The problem I am having is, when i select one of the 48, which populates the multiple list option and checks all sub categories... i go to uncheck one in the sub categories, which successfully unchecks the main category (as it indicates they are not all selected). It also successfully removes the sub category from the multiple select option list and its main category (which became unchecked).
When I go back to check the main category which makes all the sub categories checked... it re-populates the <select><option> multiple list with the values creating duplicates. I need a proper way of when I check a box, it scans the multiple <select><option> list to see if it already exists, then adds it again if it is not there. I have tried the following jquery:
I originally posted this question in the PHP forum and received advice to try here, they said it might be possible using JS and AJAX.I have limited experience with JS and none at all with AJAX.I have an HTML form in which I have a Select field, currently with about 100 options. The form creates an HTML email using formmail.Dependent on the option taken I get other details, eg address, email, telephone, etc.This is begging to be done via a database and PHP.I do not know if this is possible, but could I open the database, MYSQL, and take all the records into an array, open the HTML form and use one of the fields of the array to create the options list, when an option is selected use the other fields in the array to fill in the address, email, etc fields on the form and then use those values as variables to pass to formmail, which is a PHP program.
I thought that if this was possible I would use PHP to populate the array and then get it to call the HTML form where I could hopefully use the array to help complete some of the fields using SELECT.I would like to know if my thoughts are going in the right direction or if I need to go down another track.
If i have an existing HTML Select statement with options specified, and then based on an even, i want to rebuild that options list, how do I wipe the existing options parameters in order to add new ones?
I am trying to make a simple code that has a selection list (with the choice fruit or veggie). When the user chooses fruit, the second list displays the options apple, orange, banana. When the user changes their choice to veggie, the second select list then contains carrot, corn, potatoes (and the apple, orange, banana disappear).
