Page "jumping" Back To Top... How Do I Stop It?

Jan 26, 2006

I have a piece of javascript running about mid-section on a webpage. It's doing exactly what I want it to do, but when it runs it also "jumps" the page back to the top. That is, if I have my scroll bar half way down the page, when I click on the link and run this code it jumps me back to the top as if I'm visiting for the first time.

Any ideas on how to keep it on the same spot on the page while still executing the code?

Here is my code:

Code:
function changeOrderDetail(changeTo) {
if (changeTo == "guys") {
document.getElementById('orderDetail').style.backgroundImage = "url(images/subpage_odguysbg.jpg)";
} else {
document.getElementById('orderDetail').style.backgroundImage = "url(images/subpage_odgalsbg.jpg)";
}
}

JQuery :: Stop Browser Window Jumping To Top Of Page?

I'm completely new to jquery and javascript and am just trying to get a simple script up and running. I've put this in the head of the document:

with a div with an id of "togglecontent" and a link with an id of "fadein" in the body about halfway down the page.

Simple Password Protect - Stop Going Back To The Page With The Form After Submit It

Feb 22, 2009

Let me start out by saying that this is for a small-time page with absolutely zero valuable information. PHP or server-side is way beyond the scope of my goals for the project.

Basically, I have a form on a page which I want to use to submit a password. However, I have realized that using the form submit always makes the browser return to the page with the form.

Well, that's not good when I want to redirect using javascript!

My javascript is:

Image Link Jumping To Top Of Page ?

Jul 22, 2009

I am using a javascript gallery plugin, Galleriffic, to display an image gallery. I am having an issue with it as when the image is clicked it keeps jumping back to the top of the page. The problem with this is that the thumbnails which are underneath the main image on the page aren't visible and the user must then scroll to see them.

Is there any way that I can change this so that the link on the image doesn't make the page jump back to the top? I don't have my version online but the website will show you the code that is being used.

How Can We Stop IE From Executing Javascript On A Back Button Click

Nov 14, 2007

Basically, I have a page that I load with 10 input fields. If users
have JS enabled I want to hide 5 of these fields so as to reduce
clutter. If the user needs these extra fields an "Add" button can be
used to display the hidden fields one by one.

Once the fields a filled in the user submits them for validation and
if there are any error They can "Go back" to make some changes. The
whole process works great in FF & Opera but IE lets me down because if
you use the Browser "Back" button the Javavscript gets executed even
though it should be loaded out of cache.

Get Code To Execute Inline Instead Of Jumping To Top Of Page?

Mar 13, 2011

so im working on a piece of jquery/JS which executes (drops down a new div) when you click a link. I have the links setup as

<a href="#" id="d0">Execute 1</a>
<a href="#" id="d1">Execute 2</a>
<a href="#" id="d2">Execute 3</a>

And the jscript detects when d0, d1 or d2 is clicked and executes my script. It all works perfectly, however when you click on a link it will jump to the top of the page as a side effect of the a href="#" I assume?

JQuery :: Obvious Jumping Of Element From Original Position To New Positon After Loading Of New Page?

Jun 16, 2010

If you go on my test site: [URL]... You will see a navigation menu at the top, with an animated ball. Every time you click on one of the links in the navigation menu, you will notice that after a new page is loaded there is a sudden jump from the balls original position to it's new position. (Not that obvious in Firefox but very obvious in IE and Safari) My question is how can I resolve this.

I assumed that wrapping the code in the $(document).ready function would elimate this issue as everything inside it will load before the page contents are loaded.

How Can I Stop XP 'Large Fonts' Affecting Web Page?

May 27, 2006

I notice when I design a basic HTML page, it
is affected if a WinXP user has Large Fonts set in their Control Panel.
However some pages, e.g. www.bbc.co.uk/news are unaffected by this I think.
They are definitely not affected by changing the font size within the
browser.

Because I want to add tables, which will word-wrap incorrectly if the font
size is changed, how can I disable allowing the browser to do this?

Basically I want the font size to stay how I designed it. If they need it
bigger, they can use the zoom option in more recent browsers. Code:

JQuery :: Stop A Page Scrolling When Div Is Toggled?

Jan 11, 2011

I have two divs that are in the same parent div, only one is shown at once. When I toggle the one that is smaller (height-wise), the position of the scroll bar (and hence the user's current location on the page) remains the same. But when I toggle back to the taller div, the scroll bar launches you back up almost to the top of the page.Is there a way I can stop this from happening? I tried return false which i knew wouldn't work. I also looked into scrollTop() but that doesn't seem like it will be of any help since it only returns values and does not set any values?

Stop Refreshing The Page When Captcha Is Wrong?

Now the question is, how can I stop the page refreshing itself? All I need is an alert and then you could retype the captcha without losing the other information.

2. and still retain the values that a user already filled in in the previous page you are returning to (i.e. - the user should not have to fill in the values afresh)
