Getting IE6 To Auto-select An Item In A Dropdown

Mar 21, 2007

On this page (just a demo) I canít get IE6 to auto-select the first item
in the dynamically-generated drop-down menus. Well, that isnít entirely
true. Sometimes it works properly, but never on the first try. When it
fails, the error message it gives is:

"Cannot set the selected property. Unspecified error."

FF2, IE7, and OP9 all behave as expected. I have tried a variety of
workarounds to no avail. I don't have an exhaustive list of everything I
have tried, but it seems like I have tried a hundred ways of setting the
"selected" attribute.

The page uses jQuery 1.1.2. Currently the page is using...

$("#select-how option:first-child").attr("selected","selected");

....to auto-select the first item in the list.

Select An Item On A Dropdown List

Jul 27, 2005

I have have some values stored in javascript variables. I have a
<select> dropdown list whose options correspond to these values. I want
to be able to select an item on the dropdown list based on the value of
the javascript variable.

Let's say this is my list and my variable:

<select id='popup'>
<option value="default">--Please Choose a saying--</option>
<option value="hello">Hello</option>
<option value="goodbye">Goodbye</option>
</select>

var input = "hello";

Is there a way to select the 2nd option using using that variable
value? Something like:

var popup = document.getElementById("popup");
popup.selectedItem = input;

Select Element - How To Auto-dropdown?

Jul 23, 2005

In our current application we have a page whose sole purpose for existence
is to permit the user to select from a list (subsequent to our login page).
We would like to have the list drop down automatically when the visitor
arrives at the page, perhaps by using the onLoad event to call the dropdown
code. The problem is, the click() event does not drop down the list, as I
would have thought it might.

I can successfully fire other methods using the object.method() syntax. Our
form is named "test," the select is named "sel1," and the code
document.test.sel1.focus() in fact focuses the control,
document.test.sel1.selectedIndex=2 selects the third item, etc. Given that,
I would have thought that document.test.sel1.click() would cause a similar
result to clicking the control, i.e., dropdown of the select. Instead, all
that happens is what appears to be a very quick redraw of the selected
value's text (i.e., it flickers slightly).

I've tried preceding the call to click() with a call to focus(), and vice
versa. No joy. I've Googled on several combinations of search terms, but
either there's no information on how to accomplish this or it was deeper
than the 3-4 pages I followed down into each of the search results.

Anybody know if it is possible to do what we want, and if so, could you
point me to a link where I can find sample source?

Auto Select Current Day / Month In A Dropdown?

Aug 14, 2009

I have this reservation form found on the main page of: http://www.avis.com.lb/

As you can see the current month "August" is selected as the default month and so is the year and day (the day is programmed to jump 2 days ahead for the renting of the car...)

However if you look closely (check the screenshot attached) you'll see that the month "August" is repeated twice and so is the year "2009", the current month is repeated twice. What I wanna do is remove the duplication and just auto select the current month without duplicating it.code...

Auto Scrolling - To The Right Automatically 1 Item At A Time

Jan 19, 2011

I'm not sure exactly what this type of thing is referred to but I'm trying to implement something which is similar to the scrolling logos on this page:- [URL] I need it to function just like that i.e. :-

- scroll to the right automatically 1 item at a time
- when it reaches the end scroll all the way to the left
- When the user hovers over the slider itself or the arrow buttons all effects stop temporarily until they hover elsewhere
- In my code I only want clicking either of the arrows to move the slider left or right by 1 item rather than 4
- when it is at the far left the left arrow disppears temporarily
- when it is at the far right the right arrow disppears temporarily

Auto Update Price When A User Changes Options To An Item?

Dec 22, 2011

What i am trying to do is allow a user to get a quote on how much an item would be if they wanted to sell it. all the data is being generated dynamically on the item and passed to this JavaScript correctly. The issue is when a user changes his mind and switches his options a few times the price goes out of wack and some times will actually be more then the original price. For example. If the item was in mint condition it would be 100 dollars. If it is " good condition" then it would loose lets say 20 percent, so it would be worth 80 dollars. Now each item has 3 sections of questions, what is the condition of the item, any "modifiers" like water damage or functional issues, and then third section is if its missing any parts or cables. All of this is being asked on 1 page, and when a user changes any of the options it should update the price on that page with out the user needing to press update. So condition goes, 100%, 70%, 40%, 20%. Modifiers are 50 percent of current price of item, so if it was "perfect (yes I know an item cant be perfect and have water damage but this is just an example) thus being 100 dollars, and has water damage, that would make it now worth 50 dollars, and has functional issues, now worth 25 dollars. If it was missing cables, it would loose lets say 5 dollars so now its worth 20 dollars. Thats an example on how i calculate the value of the items. So once again, the actual amount is being passed correctly to this script, but when you make to many changes its not happy.

Pass Text From One Select Box To Another Select Box Using The For Loop To Check The Existence Of An Item But It Is Not Working?

Aug 28, 2010

i am trying to pass text from one select box to another select box. The logic is if 10 are added, no more passing must happen. Also if an item is already added, it mustn't be added again.I am using the for loop to check the existence of an item but it is not working: what am i doing wrong?

Code:
function PassSelectValues(){
//pass values from select boxes to select boxes
var counter;[code]....

why isn't counter incrementing at all? The alert message box does appear saying item exists but the item gets added anyway.

JQuery :: Selecting A Dropdown Item From MySQL?

Dec 30, 2011

This one should be easy. In fact, it was working for a long time as far as I know. Then I upgraded from jQuery 1.4.4 to 1.7.1 and a few things stopped working. (This is according to my client; it's possible it's been broken for a long time.)

So a customer logs in and sees his/her registration information. Name, address, phone number, etc... It gets this information from a MySQL database. For the customer's home address, there's a dropdown for the state (MA, NH, etc...) Rather than displaying the default specified in the HTML code, I have a bit of jQuery code that is supposed to change the dropdown selection to the user's home state as stored in the MySQL database.

Unfortunately, nothing happens. It rather than changing to the user's home state, it just displays the default state (AL, the first alphabetically).

[Code]..

I verified that $row['state'] contains valid data by outputting it as HTML on the page (my test data outputs "MA"). And I'm reasonably sure that this used to work in the past.

JQuery :: Auto-select A Select Box On Postback With User's Selection

Feb 12, 2010

I have a ColdFusion page with a select drop down list. On submit, I'm storing the value in a cfparam and trying to use jQuery to auto select that particular option. Currently I'm using :contains but this is unacceptable because it selects the last item that contains the cfparam.

$("option:contains('<cfoutput>#form.company_type#</cfoutput>')").attr('selected', 'selected');
Is there something like this:
$("option").equals('<cfoutput>#form.company_type#</cfoutput>')").attr('selected', 'selected');

[Code]....

I willconsider other alternatives to accomplishing my objective.

JQuery :: Autocomplete - Only First Letter Of Each Item In Dropdown List?

Jul 7, 2010

I tried to use it in my app and I only have the first letter of each item in the dropdown list. So it is very difficult to select the good option I have search any information in these forums about this trouble, but no success.

[Code]...

perhaps this code is wrong and json format not good ? so, the first item of dropdown list is fine in the input box, but all items with only one letter in dropdown list. I hope any body can spend a few time and help me a little to understand that is wrong, as I could terminate my app.

SELECT OnChange Auto Fill Other SELECT Boxes

Jul 25, 2002

I searched here and some other places on the net but cant find anything that suits my needs. I have a SELECT box with 3 values Code:

<form name="form1">
<select name="length">
<option name="length" value="none">--Select for All--</option>
<option name="length" value="5">--5 Days--</option>
<option name="length" value="7">--7 Days--</option>
<option name="length" value="10">--10 Days--</option>
</select>
</form>

OnChange, I want to invoke a function that auto populates the rest of the SELECT fields in the form. The select boxes will vary in quantity as the page is dynamic, but the values are always the same (like the code above).

Does this make sense?

Is there a simple fix that I just haven't figured out yet?My instinct is to give each ul it's own id, but I'm not sure how to direct the jquery in the header to work with individual elements.
