Dynamically Creating And Naming Objects?

Oct 13, 2010

I've got an input with a value. The input is called 'command2' and I want to send it's value to the 'rover2' object (although I don't know if that object exists yet). I test and say if(rover2){... and if not then I create the object/if so then I insert the value.Question is: I want to do:Code JavaScript:var rover2 = new Rover();but I want to pass the name of the new object by association, so in effect:Code JavaScript:var "rover"+i = new Rover();How would you do that? So that the objects and their names are generated dynamically (or [perhaps a better explanation] so that the string value of a variable can be used as the name of new variable/object)?PS Bonus marks: If I hold HTML fragments as an object and those fragments include inputs, is the value of the input collected as well? i.e. if I have

Code HTML4Strict:
<input id="foo" type="text" />

Creating An Array Of Objects

Oct 3, 2011

As they all have the same property set but with different values I thought I'd try creating a servo object, the create an array of servo's but I don't think I'm getting anywhere fast. Heres what I have

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-W3CDTD XHTML 1.0 TransitionalEN" "http:www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http:www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>

Once this is done and I've got all the servo objects created with their properties, I'm hoping to be able to search for all servo's with a set property i.e all servo's with servo.application = 1 would that be possible, if not I geuss I'd be wasting all our time trying to create classes I can't use the way I'd like.

JQuery :: Creating Objects Within Each()

Oct 7, 2010

I have a tab compopenet object that works by passing a dom element to a constructor... which then finds all the relative elements to that element using .find() and adds the necessary behaviour. Now, since I have multiple tab components on the same page, I'm using each() to iterate through the dom elements and pass each into the tab component constructor function.

Creating True Copies (of Objects) In JS (possible?)

Jul 20, 2005

Lets say I have this array:

a1 = [1,"2",new Array(2.5,3,3.5),4];

And I apply slice(0) on it, to create a copy:

a2 = a1.slice(0);

But this isn't a true copy. If I go a1[2][1] = 42, and then
alert(a2[2][1]) I will see 42 there too. I'm doubting, but I was
wondering if there is a general solution to this problem?

JQuery :: Creating Objects From Within .each Question?

Oct 7, 2010

I have a tab compopenet object that works by passing a dom element to a constructor... which then finds all the relative elements to that element using .find() and adds the necessary behaviour.Now, since I have multiple tab components on the same page, I'm using each() to iterate through the dom elements and pass each into the tab component constructor function.[code]This works fine for my purposes, but after running my code through JSLint and researching here (URL...), I've been made aware that I'm pretty much throwing these objects away, since I'm not assigning them to a variable.My question really is; is this particularly bad practice under the circumstances? If I assigned the object to a variable within .each(), I'd surely be overwriting that varibale with each iteration and essentially doing the same thing?

JQuery :: Creating Objects On The Page To Load?

May 10, 2010

if I am loading content into a div using the get feature of jquery, and that content has some clickable objects in it will jquery recognize those as well? What I am doing is building a site that tracks bugs on our software. The site pulls the bugs from a mysql db and displays in a table format. There's an edit link which passes the record id number of that bug (via ajax) to a php file, where a form is filled in with the bug data and passed back, a hidden div is then shown with the form in it. Part of the code I pass back has a submit button and a close button (css styled anchors) and I'm using the same process on them as I am on the edit link but not getting any results. My script looks like this:

<script src="js/jquery.js"></script>
<script language="javascript">
//hide edit form


how it works. Does it sneak peek the page after it loads and get all the objects into some sort of array? I'm thinking it is doing that and because I am adding other object through AJAX it is not seeing those, since the page is not being reloaded.

Creating And Managing Unknown Numbers Of Objects?

Jan 30, 2011

ok, so I can make an object, I can also make a new instance of that object and have it running around the screen at the same time.What I'm a bit confused about is how to go about things when I want X number of these objects.So instead of making objects seperately I need a loop. Instead of referring to each object seperately every time I want to redraw it, I want to loop through all instances of the object.Except I can't quite see how one goes about doing this.

for (i = 0;i <= 10; i++) {
var dot + i = new Dot;

Creating Instantatable Objects Using Pure JSON? -- No Prototyping!

Apr 23, 2007

I've been pretty infatuated with JSON for some time now since
"discovering" it a while back. (It's been there all along in
JavaScript, but it was just never "noticed" or used by most until
recently -- or maybe I should just speak for myself.)

The fact that JSON is more elegant goes without saying, yet I can't
seem to find a way to use JSON the way I *really* want to use it: to
create objects that can be instantated into multiple instances without
prototyping. I've seen (and used) JSON for singleton object instances
-- this not a problem and this is how it works right out of the gate.

But given the following custom object written the past "normal" way, I
would like to write it in JSON format, and then be able to create new
instances from the one definition. Here's an example using the "old
way" most who have been writing JavaScript for years have seen:

function Two( x, y ) {
this.x = x;
this.y = y;

Two.prototype.sum = function () { return this.x + this.y }
Two.prototype.max = function () { return this.x this.y ? this.x :
this.y }
Two.prototype.min = function () { return this.x this.y ? this.y :
this.x }
Two.prototype.pow = function () { return Math.pow( this.x, this.y ) }

Now, I know I can get all "fancy" with the above and do either this:

Two.prototype = {
sum : function { return this.x + this.y },
max : function () { return this.x this.y ? this.x : this.y },
min : function () { return this.x this.y ? this.y : this.x },
pow : function () { return Math.pow( this.x, this.y ) }

Or this:

function Two( x, y ) {
// Properties.
this.x = x;
this.y = y;

// Methods.
this.sum = function () { return this.x + this.y }
this.max = function () { return this.x this.y ? this.x : this.y }
this.min = function () { return this.x this.y ? this.y : this.x }
this.pow = function () { return Math.pow( this.x, this.y ) }

(The later seems to work without prototyping...!)

But neither are really as close to pure JSON as I would like, so that
I can instantate those:

var hisPair = new Two( 11, 22 );
var herPair = new Two( 33, 44 );

What I'd like is a way in PURE JSON to be able to create the Two class
(as an example) using pure JSON. I've not seen anything yet on the
web that addresses this directly aside from some pages which require
you to include another JS to allow "deep embedding" of classes using
other helper "classes" (that are created the "old way" it seems), etc.

The best I've found so far on using pure JSON to create a class that
allows *multiple* instances is something like this:

function Two( x, y ) {

var class = {
x : x,
y : y,
sum : function { return this.x + this.y }
max : function () { return this.x this.y ? this.x : this.y }
min : function () { return this.x this.y ? this.y : this.x }
pow : function () { return Math.pow( this.x, this.y ) }

for (var element in class) this[element] = class[element];


Now *THAT* works, but it's still not as "pure" I would like. But it's
acceptable for now, I guess, since I *am* creating the entire "class"
as a JSON object, and I consider the outside function "wrapper" as the
necessary "constructor." But I keep wondering... There HAS to be a
better way.

I'm just wondering if anyone knows of a place that discusses JSON used
in situations like the above. Again, I've seen an ABUNDANCE of pages
and sites that discuss JSON in Singleton usage, but nothing that
discusses it as I am wanting here.

Problems With Dynamically Adding Events To New DOM Objects

I am trying to add an event listener to the keyup event for some text

JQuery :: Selecting Objects In Dynamically Generated HTML?

Jun 3, 2009

I'd like to do something like this: After the page is loaded I have some forms with submit buttons. The buttons have a class called "open". By clicking any of these buttons the script is using AJAX to take some data from database and add some HTML to the document. This part of generated HTML has also buttons with a class "open". By clicking any of the new buttons script should do what it does with the old ones. The problem is I have no idea how to "refresh" a click function. After generating HTML it "sees" only the old buttons.

Here's some code:

var idVal = $(this).parent().parent().find("#PlaceId").val();

JQuery :: Pass Dynamically Assigned Variables As Objects

Feb 17, 2010

function get_states(country_element,state_element){
countryElementIDHash = "#" + country_element;
stateElementIDHash = "#" + state_element;
var geonameId = $(countryElementIDHash).val();
{ 'geonameId': geonameId },
function(data) {
if (data.geonames == null) alert('No regions');
$.each(data.geonames, function(i,item){
$(stateElementIDHash).append($('<option>' + item.name + '</option>'));

I'm writing a function to populate a SELECT based on the select value of another SELECT. I can't figure out why this isn't working. It has something to do with not having "'s in my $(). for example: If this function wasn't dynamic.

The code:
$(countryElementIDHash).val(); could simply be
$("#country option:selected").val();
How can I pass dynamically assigned names into a $() ?

Dynamically Creating A New Div?

Feb 10, 2010

I'm using the following code to create a quick and dirty search tool for a site we're building at work as part of an RFP.My issue is that rather than creating a new window for the results page (which is what it does now), I'd really prefer that a new div be dynamically created on the page where the results would be placed.Maybe that's not possible? At the very least,how to make the results display in the same window rather than opening a new one?

var item = new Array();
// "Page Name","path","Page Title","Many,Key,Words","Descriptive Comments"

Need Help Dynamically Creating Forms With DOM

Jul 23, 2005

I'm trying to create a fairly simple form which contains a label, a
button, and a textbox.

I've done quite a bit of reading and, from what I can figure, the
following should work, but isn't....

var rowCommentBox = document.createElement("TR");
var cellCommentBox = document.createElement("TD");
var frmCommentBox = document.createElement("FORM");
frmCommentBox.setAttribute("METHOD", "POST");
var strAction = ""submitComments.asp?Org="+strOrg+"&date="+activeWeekBegins""
frmCommentBox.setAttribute("ACTION", strAction);
var rowFrmCommentBox = document.createElement("TR");
var cellFrmCommentBoxLabel = document.createElement("TD");
var strFrmCommentLabel = document.createTextNode("comment:");
var cellFrmCommentBoxButton = document.createElement("TD");
var btnFrmCommentBoxButton = document.createElement("INPUT");
btnFrmCommentBoxButton.setAttribute("TYPE", "SUBMIT");
btnFrmCommentBoxButton.setAttribute("VALUE", "UPDATE");
var cellFrmCommentBoxTxtbx = document.createElement("TD");
var txtbxFrmCommentBoxTxtbx = document.createElement("INPUT");
txtbxFrmCommentBoxTxtbx.setAttribute("TYPE", "TEXT");
txtbxFrmCommentBoxTxtbx.setAttribute("cols", "50");
txtbxFrmCommentBoxTxtbx.setAttribute("VALUE", strComments);

cellFrmCommentBoxLabel.appendChild(strFrmCommentLa bel);
rowFrmCommentBox.appendChild(cellFrmCommentBoxLabe l);
cellFrmCommentBoxButton.appendChild(btnFrmCommentB oxButton);
rowFrmCommentBox.appendChild(cellFrmCommentBoxButt on);

I am trying to create a function that creates an array comprised of filenames based on a given range. I.E if 2-8 is selected and a foldername of UMCP/ and a common name of college is also given, the function should return and array such as [UMCP/college2.jpg,UMCP/college3.jpg.....UMCP/college8.jpg]. Here is what I've got but the alert that should tell me the filename of the first image says it is undefined, how can i fix this?

Dynamically Creating Variable Names

Aug 9, 2003

Here's my problem: I need to create a variable name dynamically, made up of a string (say "var_name_") and an integer. Ultimately I want something like this:

var_name_1 = 'whatever value I want'
var_name_2 = 'whatever value I want'
var_name_3 = 'whatever value I want'
var_name_N = 'whatever value I want'

But the actual variable names are determined at run-time, so I can't just hardcode them.

Any suggestions? JavaScript doesn't seem to have a Variable type, so I can't just cast a string into a var...
