Need To Escape Parentheses In Script Parameter String???

Jul 20, 2005

I'm passing a parameter to a script, which sometimes fails.
However, I discovered that the ones failing had parentheses within the
text string, e.g., "Step: Press the (0) on the console."

I've learned how to escape apostrophes, but how do I do so for parens?
Is it ( ? Also, where ' was the xml entity for apostrophe,
would someone know the one for left and right parens? Can't find that
either...not having much luck today with my searches.

Unicode + Escape Character = IE Unterminated String Constant Error!

Nov 1, 2007

Let's say I have a string:

div.innerHTML = "<a onclick='foo(""+myWord+"");'></a>";

in IE only (tested version 7) if var myWord = "English" then it works
fine but if var myWord = "Modifier Chau00EEnes" then I get "Unterminated
string constant" error.

What fix would you suggest to keep div.innerHTML = "" format?

Parse Url And Pass The String As A Parameter

Nov 16, 2007

I'm trying to parse a string from a URL and pass it as a parameter to another function. If that parameter meets certain conditions, I want hidden fields in my form to "unhide".

I am giving 3 usersr a specified url i.e. (http://DOMAINNAME.com?usr=uk or http://DOMAINNAME.com?usr=france) and based on that url, we'll parse the name and pass it as a parameter to a function. (i think i expressed that right??) Then we will display the proper shipping address depending on the parameter passed. My only problem now is, i'm horrible at writing regular expressions and programming in general. Do you or anyone else out there know of any good url parseing functions? I've been doing mostly project management throughout my career and never really got a chance to become fluent in javascript or programming for that matter.

Onclick AJAX :: Where To Add The Open And Closing Parentheses?

Jan 27, 2011

is there any way to get this AJAX to be called on a button click? I know how to use buttons to call JS functions but I'm not sure where to add the open and closing parentheses with this AJAX...I've tried encasing different parts, but to no avail.So guessing I have to do something different here? I'm not sure, really new to this.And yes I've tried searching, again it's very specific and a bit vague.

Javascript Escape

Jul 20, 2005

I have some javscript mixed into a applications templating and have
run into a problem the way javascript is handling a path for me.

I am via the template assigning a file path to a javascript variable.

The Tempalte: var myfile = "!FILEPATH!";
which becomes: var myfile = "C:mydir hefile.txt";

The issue of course being that the 's are not escaped. I'm not as
fluent in Javascript as I'd like to be yet and I havn't figured out a
way to escape it so I can coninue on with the rest of the script.
I've tried to do a search and replace but javscript is already
interpreting the 's as escaping a character.

How can I either autoescape the 's (if possible), or access the raw
data so I can replace with ?

Double Escape

Jan 14, 2007

I am having trouble with some code on my site. I have an arcade with game links that have tooltips which display thumbnails. The tooltip code for each link is in the title attribute. I am using javascript to write the code for these links with tooltips so that if javascript is disabled the title attribute displays something different. My problem is some of the tooltip thumbnails contain an apostrophe (') in their src code. I use a backslash () to escape this once but I need to escape it again. Is this possible. The reason I need to escape it twice is one to escape it from the javascript and another to escape it from the src tag (src='Thumbs/image'src.jpg').

Escape Apostrophy In URL

Jul 14, 2011

I have an announcement webpart on my sharepoint site. The boss wanted attachments to open in a new window so that users don�t close the attachment and get knocked from the site only to have to login again. To achieve this we settled on a policy that attachments should be in the form of PDF documents rather than word format. We contacted Microsoft who in turn developed a solution for us that consisted of a content editor web part that runs some javascript. The problem is 2 fold.

1. The javascript only works in Internet explorer. When used in other browsers the attachments open in the same window.

2. If the name of the document contains an apostrophe, IE barks a javascript error: expected �)�

How do I rewrite the code to escape the apostrophe and to function in multiple browsers?

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
_spBodyOnLoadFunctionNames.push("OpenPDFInNewWindow()");
function OpenPDFInNewWindow()
{

Escape() Behaves Strange Sometimes

May 12, 2007

Yesterday I discovered a problem on one of my sites: escape function was encoding the same string Sal in two different ways:Sal%F2Sal%C3%B2
This was happening on Firefox 2.0.0.3. In Opera 9.20 was encoded ok every time.

So, in Firefox was a russian roulette . Sometimes was encoding the string like I wanted to, sometimes not. As a solution I use encodeURIComponent(), but the behavior of escape() seems strange to me.

Unicode Escape Non-ascii Chars?

Jan 1, 2009

I'm looking for a function that will convert non-ascii characters to unicode escaped string.For example, "あ" => "u3042".A similar piece of code is below. However, it convert strings to "\uxxxx" instead of "uxxxx". Changing "\" to "" in code below still won't work because that result in 'u' + 'xxxx' which print as "uxxxx".I have been searching for a few days already, and start wondering if this is at all possible. ; (

Code:
var unicodeEscape = function(str) {
var code, pref = {1: '\x0', 2: '\x', 3: '\u0', 4: '\u'};

Libraries Or Functions To Escape Quotes, Tabs, Etc.

Jan 5, 2007

I was wondering if there are any proper, robust libraries or
functions/methods that I don't know of that will escape all the
problematic characters such as single quotes and tabs.

I find myselfwriting x = x.replace(/'/g,"'"); and the reverse over and over again.
Shouldn't Javascript have a built in method to do this? I know of the
escape() function but I am not sure if this is more for urls. What is
the real world way of storing such an "escaped" variable in a database
that will later be read into a javascript variable? :-/

Maybe one could use escape() and unescape() in some way, but some
expert probably could answer this in a snap.

Regular Expression Methods, Problem With Escape Characters

Sep 13, 2006

Attempting to use javascript's regular expression methods to match a
particular lab number and building which would then be copied to a pair
of textfields, I found that general matching characters needing a
backslash were not recoginized. The following adapted code that finds
a two-button radio selection shows my problem:

function labstat(){
for (i=1; i<3; i++){
if(document.tester.rm_mod[i-1].checked){
var lb = document.tester.elements["lab"+(i)].value;//either
214 or 215*
var bld = document.tester.bldg.value;
if(/*/.test(lb)){ //error:Undetermined comment
// if(/*/.test(lb)){ //error:Syntax error
// if(/5/.test(lb)){ //works to match only 215*
// if(/5*/.test(lb)){ //true for all
// if(/ddd/.test(lb)){ //false for all
document.tester.room1.value = lb;
document.tester.bldg1.value = bld;
}
}
}

It appears that the escaped characters are not recognized, whichever
form of the method is used, i.e var re = /*/; // or = new
RegExp("*");
if(re.test(lb)){
--------
With the --.match(__) method I have the same problem.

Escape / Ignore Special Characters In HAML Attributes?

Dec 2, 2010

I'm using HAML to make html templates but am having a problem in writing attributes which will be replaced with JavaScript string templating.

The line in question looks like this:
%div{:class => "<%= from_class %>"}
HAML tries to encode the <%= %> tags:
<div class="&lt;%= from_class %&gt;">

I don't want that to happen in this case... Anyone know how to do this?

JQuery :: Resetting Contents Of The Table Cell On Cancel Or Escape?

Apr 14, 2010

I am using jQuery with jEditable and jQuery UI confirmation dialog. What I am trying to do, it to restore contents of the table cell if user hits Cancel on jQuery UI dialog, or just hits Esc.jEditable has "onblur" option that i can set to "cancel", and it works if uses clicks out of the field, so I am trying to achieve something like that with jQuery UI, because currently it just leaves an empty table cell.

I am pretty sure the logic of my script is wrong somehow, so I am trying to figure out what to do to fix it.

Here is the flow of the script:

1. User clicks on a table cell and edits data in jEditable

2. User clicks save, jEditable doe POST to my php script and gets results, which a passed to jQuery UI confirmation dialog.

3. User either confirms or cancels changes. In case of Cancel or Esc, the user presented with a page, as it was before any editing has occured

-i
$(".editable_textarea").editable("/path/to/my/php_script.php", {
indicator : "<img src='/am/images/indicator.gif'>",
type : 'textarea',

[Code]......
