Selecting A Dropdown Option By Its Text?

Jul 15, 2009

So I've got some simple javascript functions to set dropdown selections based on index. But I've also have a field that needs to be selected based on its text (possibly value, but text would be better).The current code is really just based around this line:document.getElementById("Option3")[myOption1].selected = true;and what I'm looking for is:document.getElementById("Option3").getIndexByText("TheSelectorText").selected = true;Is there a built in function for this? Has anyone implemented it? I searched google and there didn't seem to be any standout answers.

Selecting An Option Line Within A Select.

Sep 14, 2005

Is there a method I can call to click on a particular <option> within a <Select>?
I've got a select with several <option> lines,and I have the ID of the one I want to click, but have tried .click() but that doesn't work. It always picks the top of the list, and reading up on it, it sounds like the click isn't what I'd choose. Is there another?

I have up to 3 dropdown lists that I can select using javascript functions. Depending on what I select in the first dropdown loads what is in the 2nd drop down and so on. i want to be able to select the first drop down and it skips the 2nd one and displays the 3rd one. How do I do that with the current functions I am using.

function cboSourceChange(){
var iSource = document.frmHarvestForm.cboSource.options[document.frmHarvestForm.cboSource.selectedIndex].value;

JQuery :: Select Dynamically An Option In A Dropdown Select?

Aug 11, 2010

According to [URL] intended way for jQuery to change dynamically the selected option of a dropdown select control isassigningthe desired text instead of the value. I found this way veryinconvenient (data structures usually deal with value codes, not value descriptions) and it seems to work only sometimes.

Trying different options I came out with this approach that seems to do the job so
far:

function setSelect(pID,pSelectedValue)
{
$('#'+pID + ' option:selected').removeAttr('selected');

JQuery :: Show An Alert (or Hidden Div) When Selecting A Particular Option In A Select Element?

Jan 26, 2010

I'd like to have an alert of some type, either standard alert or a hidden div, show up when a user selects an option in a select element.

For instance, if a select element has 5 options in it and the user chooses the first one, they would get an alert that says "You have chosen the first option". I'm confident this is something that can be done with a few lines of code, but I'm not sure where to begin.

Here's the logic - I'm just not sure how to write the syntax...

If ("#select option") changes and ("#select option:eq(0):selected"), fade in the div ("alert").

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.

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...

Show And Hide On Select Option Dropdown Menu

Jan 30, 2009

Basically, I have written an application that runs a report based on a certain amount of parameters, one of which being date. So, the date selection is a <select></select> dropdown menu and it has the usual in it, today, yesterday, this week, last week etc. The problem is I need it to have a 'Custom' selection to run reports for custom dates. When 'Custom' is selected in the dropdown menu, two text boxes appear underneath with YYYY-MM-DD watermarked in them. I have assembled enough code from around the web to get this to work and it works fine, the problem I have is that when the user clicks off the 'Custom' option and on to a different one, I need the textboxes to disappear again.

Here is the code I am using:
<script type="text/javascript">
function showhide(divid){
thediv = document.getElementById(divid);
if(thediv.style.display== 'none' ){
thediv.style.display='block'
}else{
thediv.style.display='none'
}} .....

2 Dropdown Menus - Make A Form Where The User Is Only Able To Select An Option From One Of The Drop Down Menus?

Feb 11, 2009

I am trying to make a form where the user is only able to select an option from one of the drop down menus and if they click both then submit an error should pop up telling them to select just one. Now I have found this code:

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript"'>
<!--
function validateForm(){[code]....

the first problem is that my menu must be named "id[2]2" which causes a problem due to the bracketed 2 and the 2 after. Is there any way around that?the second problem I forsee is that this will only work with 1 drop down box being unselected. I need a code that will give the warning if nothing is selected OR if something is selected in both drop downs.

Selecting Option Changes Availability Or Other Option In For

Mar 5, 2009

I wish to have options show or not show depending on the options selected previously. I think I would be right in saying this needs to be client side and think it must be javascript that is needed here. Either way what method should I use and what is the coding needed to do this.
