I have a very weired problem (which is not easy to describe.. but I'll do my best):I have a html page with several forms , only one of the got the action="ComputeAndReturn" and the other forms got only name="" tag.the problem is that after i submit the form with the action , and than after a computatioon it returns to the original page, now... if i will submit any of the forms without the action=.they will act as if they were defined action="ComputeAndReturn" (altho they are not!)if they were defined from the first time with action="anything", and than i would submit the form with action="ComputeAndReturn" this problem would not appear (the other forms will keep their action="anything" and would not "imitate" the action= "Compute AndReturn" to them selfs...
any ideas how can i keep my forms without action="" , cause all i need them to do is be submitted to pass the submitted value to other form inside that page.[code]
Here is one I cannot seem to figure out. I've got a set of text boxes with the change event bound to a function that will do some validation and add some numbers together. If the user enters something that is not a valid number I want to alert them and then put the focus back on the offending field.
My problem is that the event that I'm capturing is not the actual tab key or mouse click. So even though I set the focus in my event handler, the initial event that started the whole thing still moves the focus to the next field or where ever the mouse was clicked.
I've tried preventDefault, stopPropagation, returning false, and a bunch of other things to no avail. I hope it is something I'm missing or not seeing. If not it seems like my only choice is to capture all the events (key presses, mouse clicks etc. and handle them all which seems rather tedious.
I have a form that has two input buttons. One of the input submit buttons is being used to delete data from a database. Whenever a user clicks that delete button I am trying to make it so that a confirmation message appears that confirms that the user wants to carry on with the action. Then if they click Ok, the form should continue processing otherwise it will fail.
As you'll notice, I have no idea what i'm talking about. With that said, let me explain. I have a form that with the action changing onSubmit. The form works fine by itself but, when I place it into the jquery tabs, it no longer calls the function onSubmit="SubmitSearch()" and uses the default action for the form. Here is the code and links:
I want to replace option 2 with a variation... where the user gets the error.html page if what they typed contains 123456code. As it stands currently, option 2 requires that a person types in that code exactly with no differences at all.
[URL] that is the code in all its basic form (just stripped out other html). I am trying to modify the form actions of the 3 forms when i click on the tabs at the top of the page. but only the action of the delete form (id=form-horse-delete) gets modified. the other 2 forms do not change. i am not sure what the problem is. in IE8, if i have the jquery modifying the action of the 2 forms (add/delete), it gives a JS error. if i take out the add/delete in jquery, there is no JS error.
I have a form with two <button> elements. One button loads the page with the associated form data whilst the other triggers a download. IE6/7 does not handle <button> tags correctly. IE6 will submit all buttons regardless of which you click and uses the button content as the value, instead of the value as the value. IE7 submits just the clicked button, but still submits the content as the value, not the value.
To get around IE's issues with <button> I use JS to manipulate the DOM so hidden input fields are generated with the correct value and the button names are removed so they're not submitted at all.
This works, except in my specific situation for my download button. Because it triggers a download, the page you are on remains, and remains with the manipulated DOM, which means the form doesn't work properly anymore.
I would like to know if there's a trigger of some sort that would allow me to revert the DOM changes when the form is submitted but the page remains. I hope that makes sense. Oh, and there's no need to suggest using <input type="button" /> instead of <button>. That's not a solution.
anyway, the div box works. the login form works. i just haven't been able to figure out how to get it to appear in the div instead of into a new page.
HTML Code: <form action="" method="post" name="smForm" id="smForm"> <table>
Its for an Image Upload script which performs a binary read on the uploaded image, meaning I have to POST the form, but must pass any additional parameters to the Image Upload script via the querystring.
My submitform() function needs to set the action of form5 to :
I have form/select which executes a function using onchange. No problem. However, when I validate the page with a strict HTML 4.01 doctype at http://validator.w3.org, it demands either an action or a method for the form?.
If I give it an empty action <form action="" ..... it validates OK. Is this acceptable or is there a better/standards correct way?
How does one make a DIV visible if a form action is taken, such as a Radio button selected?
