JavaScript Confirm -> Goto

Jan 16, 2006

I currently have the follwoing javascript function: Code:

* ask question, if true goto X
function watsConfirmAction( question, letsgoto )
// ask question
if ( confirm( question ) )
// on YES goto location
location.href = letsgoto;
which is used as follows:

HTML Code:

<a onClick="watsConfirmAction('ask question', 'some URL')">link</a>

If a user doesn't have javascript, for whatever reason, this will fail to send them anywhere. is there a better way of doing this to allow for javascript non compliant browsers?

Trying To Use The GoTo Method Of The Word.Application ActiveX Object In JavaScript

Dec 11, 2006

I am trying to use the Goto method of the Word ActiveX object. I am
trying to open a document and go to a named bookmark. If I use this
code in VB it works, so I'm sure the approach is possible, I just can't
get JavaScript to work with it.

Here is the code I am using, the error I get from IE is Object
Hope someone can help! Any help would be much appreciated

function PageLoad()
var WordApp = new ActiveXObject('Word.Application');
WordApp.Visible = true;
var documentlocation = crmForm.all.new_documentlocation.DataValue;
var wd = WordApp.Documents.Open(documentlocation);
var Name = 'TestFred'
var wr = wd.Selection.GoTo(What : Word.WdGoToItem.wdGoToBookmark,Name :

Javascript And Confirm

Oct 13, 2006

This is a weird one and I am wondering if someone can help?

I have a piece of Javascript
function deleteRequest(searchID) {
if (confirm('Are you sure?')){
location = "index.php?spDB=inactive&searchID="+searchID;

When the page gets reloaded, it runs a database query and something is
made inactive.

The problem is:

When the confirm box appears, if I press OK quickly, the database query
doesn't happen. If I wait 1 second and then press OK, it is fine and
the query is run.

Basically it appears that the time between the confirm javascript
appearing and the time taken to press the Ok button affects the
reloading of the page.

Has anyone else had an issue like this?

Javascript Confirm Box

Sep 21, 2006

I have created a form with two submit button “Delete and Edit” in the form I have a javascript code, that displays a confirm box when the delete button is clicked, clicking on cancel should stop the execution of the delete script and ‘ok’ should run the script. Now, using the form this way works perfectly in Mozilla fireworks, but IE posing a problem when I click on cancel, it still executes the delete script.

<form method="post" action="eddel.php" >
<input type="submit" value="delete" name="delete" onclick=”return confirm(‘are you sure you want to delete record?’)”;>
<input name="edit" type="submit" value="edit" />

Javascript Confirm Popup.

Jul 21, 2005

I have never done any javascript at all but I think it can do what I want with ease.

Basically at the moment I have a link that calls a delete script written in php. The delete script just deletes and item from my mysql database. What I would like is a popup to appear when the link is clicked that asks for the user to confirm they wish to delete.

Could anyone either show and example or point me to a site that may have a tutorial or something.

Need To Cancel A Javascript Alert/confirm Box

Jul 23, 2005

A description of the problem:
1) Go to a page with various settings and a timeout (forces re-login
if over 10 minutes)
2) Before the timeout, make some changes to settings.
3) Press a "reset to defaults" button that uses a confirmation box to
let the user know what is about to be reset (lists items).
4) Walk away while the confirm box is displayed and come back after
the page timeout.
5) My screen now has the page, a confirm popup on top of that, and a
timeout alert on top of that.
6) Press OK to dismiss the timeout alert. The underlying page goes to
the login screen, but the confirm box remains.

How can I clear any javascript alert/confirm popups in this situation

Can A Hyperlink Call A Javascript Confirm Prompt?

Mar 17, 2006

Hi, I have this JavaScript, which I only want to occur if a user clicks on a
hyperlink hotspot in a large image:

<script type="text/javascript">
var answer = confirm ("This link is not available, click OK to load a
similar link, or Cancel to not.")
if (!answer)
// -->

To make matters more challenging, there are about 10 hotspots in the image,
and I want them each to have a different value for window.location. I.e. if
the user clicks OK in each hotspot, each one will redirect them to a
different site.

Javascript Alert/Confirm Dialogs And I18N

Apr 3, 2006

I'm pretty sure after reading this board and many like it that it is
impossible to change the ok, ok/cancel buttons that appear by default
in the alert and confirm javascript dialogs. Now for question one why
not? And question two why do they still say ok and ok/cancel when
viewed in a non-english browser install?

I have installed Chinese IE 6.0 and these buttons still say Ok/Cancel.
the rest of the browser (buttons, menus, etc...) is in Chinese except
for these two stupid buttons. No one final question, whould having a
reginonal OS installed make any difference. Right now I'm using an
English OS but with the Chinese browser mentioned above.

Goto Url From Option List?

Apr 8, 2009

I am trying to find a tutorial and learn how to create an option list and when a user selects an option they are automatically directed to a new url. I'd rather not have to use a submit button, but i guess it would be nice to learnt that too.

The thing i'm having difficulty with is what function it would use? onchange, onclick etc. I'm not really sure what to search for, and how it is described.

JQuery :: Tools Scrollable - Goto Item?

Jan 9, 2010

Is there a way to 'activate' an item in the list of items inside Scrollable? The thing I want to accomplish is this: call the api.seekTo() method inside a piece of javascript (this part works) and then visualy show the user what item in the Scrollable list it was that was sought. I know I can influence the appearance of an item clicked but what I do want is tell the scrollable to activate an item (and scroll if neccecary to bring said item into view). So clicking I understand, telling or programaticaly setting the item _without_ clicking and make it stand out (by using the activeClass property).

But I need the scrollable to goto the particular item, in this case my project is a dj timetable for times, so if its currently 2pm, goto that item in the scroller on start - of course, there's PHP involved, so that'll be used, I've already got the item classed as .active, all I need is the scroller to go to that item automatically.

JQuery :: Cycle Plugin - Can't Manage To Make The "goto" Working

I got a problem with the JQuery Cycle plugin, I can't manage to make the "goto" working.

Here is the code :

And here is the HTML :

What's happening is when I click on "test", it does show the alert but it does not go to the 4th slide. Instead, It acts as if it was the first call, therefore the slideshow starts again from the 1st slide with the default options.
