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.

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?

Disable Select Until User Puts Mark In Check Box. Then Enable Select?

Jun 26, 2010

disable select until user puts mark in check box. Then enable select.I have two select box's on a page. The first asks what product, the second is based on the first and presents a list of pdf's according to which product the user selected. (yes, multi dimensional)What I have works fine, but now i need to make the user put a check mark in a check box before the First SELECT box becomes enabled/available.So basically, when they agree, they can get the download.Here are my select boxes.

HTML Code:
<form>
<select name="category" style="width:180px"></select>
<select name="site" style="width:180px" onchange="openLink(this.value)"></select>[code]....

(ignore the The 'open' button. It's there in case the default option is what the user wants, so they don't have reselect via the select box.)

1. How do I disable the select boxes by default on page load?

2. How do I detect that the user has put a tick in and the enable the disabled Select box?

JQuery :: Select All / Select None *text* Links In A Form That Call A Jquery Function To Select All Or Select No Checkboxes?

Jun 16, 2011

I've seen a variety of implementations around that enable selecting all or no checkboxes by using a checkbox to toggle that choice. However, I'm trying to find a way like this: I have two text links on my page: Select All, and Select None. How can I get those links to call a jquery function to select all or select no checkboxes in my form? As a little food for thought:

<head>
$(function() {
//function for selecting all or none...is there a way to make a single function that passes in a parameter to differentiate between selecting all or selecting none, or do I need a separate function for both?[code]....

JQuery :: Select A Div Dynamically And Then Keep That Selection While Moving Within The DOM (passing A Target Path)?

Sep 27, 2010

I built a reusable plugin for slideshows. Client now needs me to add something that will affect its reusability.The line below is a snippet which is attached to a nav button. Each slideshow has a dot per slide. When clicked I get the number of sibling that it is within the group and then I look UP the DOM to the nearest div with the class called 'slide_holder'. I then display the slide that has the same sibling number as the dot(In other words - If you click the second dot in the group of dots, then the second slide will fade in. If you click the 3rd dot, then the 3rd slide will fade in)Below is a snippet (CLICK HANDLER)

$('.slider_dot').click(function() {
$(this).parent('.slide_dot_holder').prev('.slide_holder').children().fadeOut('slow');
$(this).parent('.slide_dot_holder').prev('.slide_holder').find('div:eq(' + $(this).index() +

Put Selection On Top Of The Current Select Box?

Mar 31, 2010

Is there anyway I could control the selected item, and put it on the top of the current selection box. I know for the first and last 4 item, it may not be able to show on the top of the select box. But if I have hundreds of record, I want the selected item to show on the top if they not the first or last 4. And I am not interested in the items before the selected item either.

I have the testing code below.

<HTML><HEAD><SCRIPT type="text/javascript">
function searchSel() {
var input=document.getElementById('txt').value.toLowerCase();
var list=document.getElementById('items').options;

JQuery :: Set Focus Of Select That Seems Natural To User?

May 24, 2010

I have this code that unhides a select box when the user clicks in the parent li containing it. Now I just want the .focus to seem more natural to the user as if they had just clicked in a normal select. As it stands, you have to click on it again to make it active (view the selections..)

$(function(){
$('li.col1').click(function(){
$(this).find('select').removeClass('nodisplay').focus();

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?

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.

Selection Of Item / Items In Multi Select Box

Feb 22, 2007

I have a multiselet box in which i identify the selected items. Once the user has finished selecting the items it causes the form to be submitted. For this example it just shows the selected indexes. To see the problem. Copy paste the code and save as html file. Then click on an item in the select box.

I am having problem with indentifying the selected items. When only one element is selected, the selected option index does not come up fine. I have no clue as to why this is the case. Code:

Only Permit Selection From One Select Field In Form?

Aug 19, 2011

I have a form with two select fields (facility[] and lightbox[]), along with a few other text inputs. Both of the select fields allow the user to select multiple options. This is fine for our needs, as long as the user only selects fields from within one select box. As soon as the user decides to make a selection from the other select field, I'd like to permit that, but clear all other selections from the first field.

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...
