I'm having problems with applying focus() to an element inside a blur() event handler. I get different results in different browsers. Specifically, IE and Opera seem to work fine, Firefox doesn't seem to do anything, and Chrome and Safari only do half of the job. Basically, I have an <input> with a blur() event handler attached to it. The event handler contains the code to apply focus to that same input, effectively disallowing the user to remove focus from the input.
I'm working with ClueTip and have run into some oddities.In particular, I want to show ClueTip when a textbox receives focus.The source shows me that I can use activation:'focus' for this and that will result in the cluetip showing on focus and disappearing on blur. Showing the cluetip is working fine, blurring is not.[code]
I have a form with a certain number of elements, i want it to at first only display the first, then when i deselect that element the next one is shown and focus moved to that and so on until the end of the form. Im new to jQuery and just
I have a requirement to handle dates by using three fields, a (year) text field and two (month and day) selects. I fill the selects using jQuery, which works beautifully. However, I have an onblur handler for the year field that handles filling the month select and an onblur handler for the month select that handles filling the day select. Part of this is to get the right number of days for a month (and for leap years), but part of it is also to force users to enter the data in order so that I can process it correctly.
However, I check in both the onblur handler of the year text box and the onblur handler of the month select whether or not the year value is entered (since if it isn't, there's no point in continuing to the day field). If there is no year value, I call
and exit the handler.
Unfortunately, the focus when all this returns is still on the month select. Adding "event.preventDefault()" and "event.stopPropogation()" within the handler have no effect.
I have a feeling that there's something very subtle going on that I'm missing. Among the points I have realized is that calling $year.focus() in the year onblur handler may activate the month onblur handler (since the month is the next input, I assume it gets focus when the year is blurred). This should not have any effect, since both handlers check for the year value just in case - but I wanted to note it in passing.
i am having trouble understanding what the difference is between BLUR and FOCUS. I need to include these functions in my form and i am unsure what these features do and how i incorporate these into my form.
I'm trying to create a control which when the mouse button gets pressed on one div an absolute positioned div pops up in place of the cursor. From there the cursor should interact with the dialog before the mouse button is released. In other words one element will catch onmousedown, display the popup, and the popup element will catch onmouseup. This works fine in IE as the popup automatically accepts following events, but my problem is in Firefox.
In Firefox everything behind the popup still receive events even though they can't be seen (hidden by the popup). I have to release the mouse button and then click on the popup again before it accepts the onmouseup event.
I also used a different cursor on the popup to see if Firefox recognized it was there at all. Still the cursor doesn't change until I release themouse button and move the cursor across the popup element.
I've tried focus/blur, timeout delays, hiding the first element (the one which receives onmousedown) but nothing works.
The only thing that works is hiding the entire body and then using setTimeout to show the entire body again 1ms later. Obviously though that is very ugly.
I'm trying to build a data navigation utility that will allow a central "map" page to control a number of tab pages that are loading individual pages from a large set of HTML. All are local file://localhost/, with localhost popups enabled. (for dev/testing all popups are enabled since firebug 1.3.3 has problems loading localhost .js code) preference to "raise and lower windows" has been enabled I am using firefox 3.0.8 on FreeBSD 6.4
Anyway, I can't get window.focus() and blur() to work between cooperating tab/windows who know each other's names.
Here following are two cooperating mirror tab pages that i'm trying to get working. Have tried a number of combinations of the focus() and blur() calls. Have tried with/without messaging. Messaging works fine.
I have noticed that the calling tab seems to unload/reload as a result of the click event. This still allows the message to get through OK, but I guess the reload could be taking the focus again.
An annoying alert() dialog could of course get focus to the message receiver, but it requires another click to get it out of the way.
The concept of these focus() and blur() calls is so simple, and I've searched all over the web for examples, but nothing seems applicable.
Have also seen that this may be a bug in Firefox.
======== code for "mirror" pages "focus1" and "focus2" follows:
a) Keyboard users to see a focus outline on navigation links. b) Keyboard users to see the outline still there if they use the browser Back button, and continue tabbing from that link onwards. c) Mouse users to NOT see an outline if they use the browser Back button.
I have a TabContainer on my page, and I want to add a keyup handler to the textbox, but somehow I counldn't find the textbox in my jquery function using $('#TabContainer1_TabPanel1_TextBox1'). Here is my code:
Normally, when I use .post in an event handler, "this" refers to the object that triggered the event. That doesn't happen in this case. When I use "this" the first time, to pull data parameters, it refers to the .trigger_button. But inside the .post callback, it refers to the AJAX call object instead. I don't think that's how it's supposed to work, is it? Is this a bug?
I have this page below which I run locally that is created dynamically: [URL]
As I said this does the job to some extent however it does not leave the focus in a perfect position so that the captcha is readable and the text box visible to type in, as illustrated in the red box in the above image.
Okay, how do I write a page with a form so that when I click Submit, the following happens?
1. The data is submitted (of course) 2. The form is cleared (what I've tried results in the form being cleared first, resulting in an empty submission), and 3. The cursor goes back to the start of the form, ready for more input (kind of like how Google puts the cursor in the search box at the start).
I can't seem to find the answer, and I've been looking on the net for a few hours already.
I am finishing up my website, right now I am using Flexcroll for the scrollbar in my main content window. Problem is, I want people to be able to use the mouse wheel to scroll that content window regardless of the mouse position.
My website is www. paulfenton .tk/wordpress if you want to see it.
I was wondering if anyone knew a way I can keep the mouse wheel focus on that internal div so I can scroll up and down at all times.
The default behaviour of focus() method is displaying the cursor at start of the char(In FF focusOffset is 0(zero) and anchorOffset is 0(zero)). I need to display the focus at end of char after calling focus() method.
