Generating A Colour Gradient

Jul 5, 2005

Im working on my own little javascript engine at the moment.

One of the functions i would like to add to it is a fadeToBackground function. In essence, it would detect the element that is calling it and find out the background colour for that element. From there it would take a hex colour that it is given and then fade to the background colour.

To do this i need to generate an array of inbetween colours. Ie, i need something like #000000, #0000EE, #0000FF etc etc.

Does anyone know of an algorithm to calculate the colours in between two given hex values?

I want to be able to dynamically generate the colours so it is a drop in function for down teh track where you just give it a colour to fade from and it does the rest.

Generating <b> Tag By One Click

Dec 23, 2003

Let's suppose a user enters his message " My name is John" in a textarea. and he likes to modify by adding <b> tag before the word "John" after he enters "My name is John".

In order to add <b> tag in front of the word "John", he should put his mouse before "John" and enter <b>.
but instead of entering <b>, I like to make the user to click the button "<b>", then <b> is automatically created just before the word "John" in the textarea.

Of course </b> will be needed later, but forget about </b> for simplification.

In short, I like to make the button "<b>" , in order to add <b> tag in front of "John" after entering "My name is John."

Generating A Random Between 2 Numbers?

May 11, 2010

I'll get to the point, I'm a noob I'm using greasemonkey for a certain website. Basically, I'm using gm to refresh the page after a certain time, I was however wondering, If I can set it to a random number between 2 specific times?

The code I'm using atm is setTimeout(function() { document.location.reload(); } , 10000); I know I have to use math.random, well, I think I do. But I'm not sure how to do it between 2 certain times? So to summarise, I'm trying to refresh a page at any given random time between say 5-10 minutes.

Generating Random Number

Feb 28, 2006

In the forum, it usually talked about generating a number between 1 or 0 to that certain value using something like Math.round(Math.random() * 200); or Math.floor(Math.random() * 200);

But what do you do if you want to generate a number between 201 and 400.

Generating Two Different Dates For A Form.

Sep 6, 2007

There is a form that I have been working on. The form needs to display information on it that, ideally, would be automatically generated.

So, for example, I open this form today 9/6/2007 and I sent it out. The form result would show the current date with a time of 6:00am and then the previous day's date with a time of 6:00am.
----Form Data----------------------------------
Data for: 9/5/2007 6:00am thru 9/6/2007 6:00am
Name: Yourname
Number: 123abc
So, again, I'm trying to write a script that will present current day and the previous day on the form and the results. I hope that I have been clear enough.
If anyone has any suggestions I am certainly open to look at them.

Dynamically Generating Table Using XML

Jan 6, 2011

I am in the process of writing a script that will dynamically generate a table using javascript and XML. I can get all of my data to feed in with no problem but am getting hung up on a few small syntax issues. Basically I need to assign a unique id equal to [i] (instead of id="answerDiv", in bold below) so that when calling showHide() it will show/hide one specific div.

Current Table Script
//table 2
document.write("<table id='tbl2' cellpadding='0' cellspacing='0' border='0' style='display: none; width:236px;'>");
var x=xmlDoc.getElementsByTagName("feature");
for (i=0;i<x.length;i++) {
document.write("<tr><td class='eventDate'>");document.write(x[i].getElementsByTagName("question")[0].childNodes[0].nodeValue);
document.write("</td><td class='eventText'>");
document.write('<a href="#" class="redLink triviaAnswer" onclick="showHide();">click for answer</a><br><br>
<div id="answerDiv" style="display:none">');
document.write('</div></td></tr><tr><td colspan="3"><div class="tabs_hr"></div></td></tr>');
} document.write("</table>");
Show/Hide Function

function showHide(){
var answer = document.getElementById('answerDiv');
if(document.getElementById('answerDiv').style.display == 'none') { = "block";
} else { = "none";
} }

Generating Random Images With No Repeats?

Jan 22, 2009

I want a certain amount of image spots to show a certain set of images (specifically 8) in a random order every time the page is refreshed. I do not want the images to be repeated, however. The solution I came up with was to create an array and generate a number one to eight and then compare that number to the numbers previously in the array, and if it matched one that was previously generated, to generate a new number and then compare it. This continues until i have an array of the numbers 1-8 in a random order.

var imgs=new Array(8);
for(i in imgs)
function generate()
return Math.floor(1+Math.random()*8);


This does not strike me as the most efficient way to go about this. If someone has a better solution,

Resolved Having Generating Random Text?

Aug 9, 2009

New to JS, and not too good at it. Trying to take some prewritten code and add script that displays some random text. Having trouble with assignment. Instructions are to replace a section of the file I am given with a script element. In the script element I am suppose to declare a variable named tipNum equal to a random integer between 1 and 10 returned by the randInt() function (which I made and have shown below). Then I am suppose to use a series of document.write() methods to write the following HTML code into the page:

<h1>Random Tip<br />title</h1>

(Where "title" is the title of the random text as generated by the tipTitle() function from a external file, and which I did not make; and "tip" is the text of the random tip as genereated by the tipText() function, which is also from the external file, and not made by me) My code for the randInt() function is

function randInt(lower, upper) {
var size = ++(upper - lower);
var randValue = Math.floor(lower + size*Math.random());

The script I made to display the HTML code is


I am getting nothing on my page where the random text should be.
