# Display Negative Number As A Positive?

Dec 20, 2005

I have a calculated value that is negative, which I need to display in a javacript prompt as positive. In ColdFusion, there is a function called ABS(), which gives you the absolute value of the number in question, so ABS(-5) = 5. Is there something similar in javascript? If no, how would I display a negative number without it's negative sign? Again, this is only for display purposes withing an alert.

## Text Red When Counter Is Negative, Green When Positive?

Jul 6, 2011

I'm just starting out learning and have sort of given myself a couple of basic problems to solve. I pretty quickly found something that's apparently hard to Google.I've made a page that shows a counter number, starting at 0, with buttons that will increase or decrease the number by 1 or 10.So I'd like to figure out how to show that number in red when it is a negative number and in green when it is a positive number. I've tried a couple of things, including an if... else, but here's my latest crack:

var counter=0;
function countUp() {
lastCounter=counter;

## Function To Change Font Color If Number Is Negative?

Jul 2, 2011

I have a function that does some calculations and populates some text fields with the results. I also have a function that changes the font color of the numbers to red if they are less than zero. What I dont have is a way to make them work together. I imagine I need to pass the results of the calculation function to the change color function, but not sure how to go about doing that. Here is the calculation function:

## Mousemove - Left To Right Within A Specific Time And Distance(positive X Coordinate)

Apr 29, 2009

I'm currently doing on a project, frankly speaking i'm new in javascript only know the basics. I'm not even sure whether this thread is suppose to be here or under html.. I'm suppose to create some codes that enable a html page to load to the next html page when the mouse move from left to right within a specific time and distance(positive X coordinate) and also the other way round (right to left) once i figured out this. I've got an example online and edited it. Please take a look at my codes.

[Code]...

test01.html is just blank page created to make sure it loads. However i would like to load from test01 to another html page but no matter how i tried to edit the codes, there's errors. I cant possibly copying and pasting the exact codes to every page i want to load to right? And is it possible to sortof increase mouse sentivity such that i can most probably load to the next page in first few tries of moving the mouse on the first page. Is it common that when i launch the html on IE and Firefox somehow after showing the first page for maybe 1 second, it immediately jumped to 2nd page and i have to go back to 1st page to try out.

## Can't Calculate A Negative Value

Jul 19, 2011

I have 3 textbox controls on my web page that are numeric currency fields in which a user can enter a numeric value, either positive or negative into TB1 and TB2 (both of these fields go thru edit checks to make sure a numeric value is entered and then return a currency value ie; \$2500.00). TB3 is calculated resulting in TB3 = TB1 ((\$6500)) - TB2 (\$2500).

My problem is that if a user enters a negative value for TB1, it returns a "NaN" and the value in TB3 turns out to be the same value as in TB2. Essentialy the calulation ends up being 0 - 2500 = 2500 (see screenshot). I've attached 2 functions below.

Code:
function cal_Overage_Shortage() {
if (make2Number("TB_LowPoint") <= 0) {
document.getElementById("TB_OverageShortage").value = GetValueTextbox("TB_LowPoint") + GetValueTextbox("TB_RequestedLowPoint");

## Count The Number Of Elements Who Display Block?

Sep 26, 2009

So never done this one before so I am having a bit of a time trying to figure this one out.

Say I have a list of LI element and only a few of them have a inline style of display block, the rest have a display of none.

How would I go about looping through and dertmining the number of elements that have a display of block?

for(var m = 0; m < li.style.display.length; i++)
{
};

The above is just crazy but where my mind melts..

## Greasemonkey - Display Number Of Clicks Since Last Refresh?

## Negative Percent Work Around?

Jun 9, 2010

I have the following calculation (simplified to focus on the point):

Code:

or imagine this is:

Code:
var scroll_percentage = 100/500;

How do I make this into a usable number?I searched for INFINITY and found plenty of info but am not sure how to simply get the "0.2" answer I need for the next calculations.

## Try-catch Error Handling -- Display Line Number?

Jul 20, 2005

I need help finding where an error is occuring in my code. I use a
try-catch block like this in my global.asa:

} catch (e) {
Application('errormsg') = ("An exception occurred in the script. Error
name: " + e.name
+ ". Error description: " + e.description
+ ". Error number: " + e.number
+ ". Error message: " + e.message); }

And this is what is SOMETIMES returned when I display
Application('errormsg'), the rest of the time, it works:

An exception occurred in the script. Error name: Error. Error description:

But I don't know which path is not found! (I'm using the filesystem object
and importing data from a file into SQL.) Is there a way to display the
line number of the error or more details? Or do I just have to try to catch
the error by going through each bit of code?

## Variables Scope In Dynamic Functions - Display The Number 1 At First And Then 2

Mar 19, 2011

I have got this piece of code:

Code:

I would like to display the number 1 at first and then 2. but this code produces number 2 for both alerts. I was able to achieve what i wanted with "new" constructor when creating functions but this is not a good practice and after all i am passing these functions as an event handlers and it can't be done with "new" keyword because it is throwing error. I think there are some solutions with arrays e.g the x would be an array of numbers, but i don't like it. Am i missing something important?

## JQuery :: Unable To Set Negative Margin?

Sep 30, 2011

I occasionally need to set a negative margin on objects for positioning but 1.6.x ignores the declarations. This use to work fine with earlier versions. Has this issue been addressed? I tried all the combinations I could think of and the setting is ignored if a value is negative. (did not find a problem reference when setting a negative value in the forums)

\$(objRef).css(marginLeft, "-20px");
\$(objRef).css("margin-left", "-20px");
\$(objRef).css(margin, "0px 0px 0px -20px");

## Regexp - Negative Match For Fixed String (vs. A Char List)?

Mar 28, 2007

Is there a way in a regexp to *not* match a fixed string value?

the exact string 'blah', i.e. *all* the letters.

Possible?

I am having some difficulty in constructing a window.confirm() function that works with my code.So if the form data is valid, I need to use a window.confirm() dialog box to show the user's total cost based on the rental rate of equipment chosen and the reservation period.
