How To Dynamically Change Text In A Table's TD Cell?
Jul 23, 2005
Can someone tell me how to do this if it is possible?
I have a table based web site, and I would like to dynamically change the
text that is shown in a particular cell of a table. I give the cell the
display the data in an alert box (this is just to see if I can access the
Is there a way to dynamically (e.g. upon onClick) change the bgColor attribute of a table cell? I tried cell.setAttribute("bgColor", someColor), where someColor was a string of the form "#RRGGBB", but nothing happened.
Also, how can I set the mouse cursor to be an arrow when it hovers over these table cells? (It's an insertion bar now.)
I have a single-cell table with a bunch of items within divs like item 1 below. The values in the divs are categories.
Following that (item 2 below), I have several single-row, two-column tables where the first column represents a Name (the item I want highlighted) and the second column is one or more of the category items (subset of item 1).
<td name="third" class="boryellow" onmouseover="this.className='borblue'" onmouseout="this.className='boryellow'">cell</td> even when dealing with empty images - click on link will change border of different element - imgs, but not span or td ... <a href="#" onclick="document.all.xxx.className='borblue'; document.all['name'].className='borblue';
Replacing any element link by "third" or "spanx" will cause stuck ant not executing other actions.
I have a table that holds a form. At the bottom of the table it has a link that says ... "Add another entry" When clicked it should add another table below that one for the user to fill out. This is designed for a Resume Builder where the user will be able to input multiple jobs. I have the script "kinda" working but the only problem is that I have to try and cram the entire table code into ONE line. If it expands multiple lines it doesn't work. I was wondering if anyone could help me out on that one... Code:
how I would dynamically add another table once text fields in the existing table is clicked on.So pretty much what I have is a table with 5 textboxes lined up horizontally in the first row along with couple of buttons in the second row.What I want is that once one text box is clicked, another table like the one above is created and appears below that initial table. So this is the inital table that should be replicated on each click:
I am on a team designing the front end of an Intranet application. The backend guys will be using JSP and AJAX-like functionality to make server requests that must dynamically change elements on a page.
What is the best way to create and populate tables, which will exist in floating DIVs (with drag and drop capability)? It only has to work with IE6.
I know of two ways:
1. Dynamically making the tables using "createElement('<table>')", "insertRow()", etc.
2. Using innerHTML in the holding DIV, to generate table code inside.
3. Is there another way?
What are the pros and cons of #1 and #2? In terms of speed (some of these tables are huge)? #2 seems easier to wrap my head around, but maybe less efficient?
what is wrong with this script. I put an onClick= changeColor(this);" in my <td> tag to call the script but still not working.
I have here a code that will automatically generate two text fields (Title & Price) when "Add another article" is pressed. I got this from the web, but I want instead of using a text field, I want it to create a drop down menu based on a mysql table, then update the price automatically (also based on the mysql table) on the other text field once a selection has been made on the drop down menu.
To build a horizontal floating menu that matches the first row (header row) of my dynamically built table (to include text and cell height/width - needs to match exactly). I have accomplished 90% of this task by extracting the text and building the row in my floating menu header and placing the floating menu where it needs to be. However, I'm having a problem aligning the table (<TD></TD>) cells because of my dynamically built table.
I then loop through the DOM (<TD></TD>) in the first row of the table to get the text and width from each cell (using offsetWidth and/or clientWidth) and assign the text and cell width(s) to variables that I use to build my floating menu with. We'll call this (for lack of a better phrase) "get_cell_text_width_code."
The problem is that once the table is built (and before it is altered by the "pre_floater_table_format_code") it seems as though my "get_cell_text_width_code" reads the un-processed table cell width(s) and sets these variables to the un-processed width values. The "pre_floater_table_format_code" runs much earlier than the "get_cell_text_width_code." So why wouldn't the "get_cell_text_width_code" read the cell width(s) after they've been adjusted by the "pre_floater_table_format_code?" Does this make sense? Anyone have any recommendations? Alternative solutions?
var td1 = document.createElement("td"); td1.appendChild(document.createTextNode(qty)); td1.setAttribute("class","qty"); row.appendChild(td1); tbody.appendChild(row); One thing that puzzles me, is that even after adding a row the table my table.rows.length still = 0.
Does anyone know how I can determine the appropriate amount of rows so that I can apply the appropriate class?
Or is there just something blatantly wrong in my approach?
I basically want the background color of a div (banner) to change when the user clicks a green or blue table cell. So if they click the blue table cell, the backgound color of the div changes to blue (its green by default).
Also, when they have picked what color they want, I'd like the color to be stored in the value of the form 'BannerBGColor' so I can post their banner color to database. code...
What I really want to happen is for a mouse over to change table cell content. I would like to have a list in the left cell, when you mouse over the list items it will change content(image text and maybe formated in a table) in the cell on the right.
Is it possible to change a table cell background color or add any attributes based on a criteria, anyway, here's my scenario. I have a php table dynamically created onthefly, (let say on load), then i have a sql query returning some values. So illustrating: Table: Sql Result 1 2 3 4 5 2 5 7 6 7 8 9 10
What I am trying to achieve is use the sql result to add attributes to the table cells so for the illustration say i want to add a bold attribute to all table cell which corresponds to the sql result, the result would be, Result: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Any plugins out there? "Its php (server-side) and jquery (client-side) talking...but I know there is a way!
I'm trying to be tricky and its not been working LOL. I have a gallery page with lots of thumbnails that load up. What I wanted to do was have a "LOADING IMAGE" GIF in each of the table cells so that the user would see visually how many more images were going to load up. That bit is fine but when all the thumbs have loaded I want to change that Cell background image to something else.
How would I do this? Would I be able to reference them all at once or would I have to reference each individual cell one at a time.
To better illustrate my point see this this link :
My web page has thumbnail pictures, and when the user clicks on a thumbnail, I change the image source of a full-size image elsewhere on the page. I'd also like to change the caption of the full-size image, but I'm not sure how to set the value of the text. I've tried creating a form with a single input field, and I can set the value of that field, but the field has a sunken style that I can't get rid of, and I'd like to find a different way of displaying the text.
Is there an easier way to change the value of a text field?
