Populating Dynamically Added Drop-down Menus

Sep 16, 2010

I've got a database written in MySQL with a bunch of PHP interfacing with it. What I want to do is populate drop down menus on a form from this database.

The way I went around solving my problem is as follows.

Code:

Which calls the function from the search.js file, which performs the following operation:

Code:

With element2 being the appropriate preemtied dropdown box, and addOption defined as follows:

Code:

So far so good. This works and produces the correct list of elements in the first dropdown box if the first dropdown box is the target. Here is where things begin to go wrong: On this form I have an add more elements button which is defined as follows:

Code:

And addElement being defined as such:

Code:

While this does successfully create all the cells I want it to create, when I attempt to select Country from the resulting dropdown, I get an empty drop down wit only the "Search For" present in it.

Firebug then proceeds to flag array in selectorfunc above:

Code:

What i believe is going on is that for SOME reason the newly created drop downs aren't being passed js_countries correctly. Unfortunately I don't know how to fix it.

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.

Populating A Drop Down Menu?

Feb 11, 2009

Wonder if anyone can help. I have a page on my website where users can select their country and state/province from a drop down menu. The country and state/province drop down menus get populated from the mysql database using javascript: ie: the user select his country, and the states/provinces of that selected country is then populated into the drop down menu. The code looks like this:<select name="countryList" id="countryList" onChange="return CountryListOnChange()">So the js part onChange will only populate the states drop down menu when a new country is selected.Now the problem is: when the use goes back to his profile, he can see the country he selected, but not any state, since the states list is only populated onChange.

Method For Dynamically Populating Tables

Mar 9, 2006

I am on a team designing the front end of an Intranet application. The
backend guys will be using JSP and AJAX-like functionality to make
server requests that must dynamically change elements on a page.

What is the best way to create and populate tables, which will exist in
floating DIVs (with drag and drop capability)? It only has to work
with IE6.

I know of two ways:

1. Dynamically making the tables using "createElement('<table>')",
"insertRow()", etc.

2. Using innerHTML in the holding DIV, to generate table code inside.

3. Is there another way?

What are the pros and cons of #1 and #2? In terms of speed (some of
these tables are huge)? #2 seems easier to wrap my head around, but
maybe less efficient?

Drop Down Menus

Jan 15, 2006

I have a little problem with drop down menus. I have a PHP
page in which I extract some categories (from a database). I put those
categories in a drop down menu without problems. I would like that when
a category is chosen, the entire page should be reloaded without the
pression of any "submit" button, and should appear a new drop down menu.
The main problem is the reloading of the page as it appears not to work
if, after OPTION VALUE, I put the name of the same page in which there
is the forum (entrate_in.php). Infact it say "page not found" while it
works perfectly if I put the name of a different php page... how to
resolve this problem? Code:

Drop-down Menus

May 1, 2001

I am trying to use an SSinclude to insert my menu information (not the .js file) in the head section. Again, this is so I don't have to update every page.

However I get an error at the body tag, where I need to do
OnLoad="init()"

If I copy and paste the contents of the include into the html it works fine. Theoretically, this is all that the SSI is doing and so it should work.

Does anybody know what I'm doing wrong?

Cascading Drop Down Menus

Jul 23, 2005

What I need to be able to do
is have the user presented with a single dropdown menu within a form
using HTML <SELECT> and <OPTION>. Once they choose a particular option I
then want another dropdown to appear alongside it with a list of options
that are dependent on what was selected in the first dropdown. Then I
want the same thing to happen a third time, i.e when the user selects an
option from the second dropdown a third one appears on the screen to the
right of it and then whatever the user chooses from this final dropdown
is used in the form submission.

Because I am a complete beginner it would be really useful to have an
actual code example that I could then modify with my own options.

Dynamic Drop Down Menus

Apr 11, 2003

You select an option in the first menu, it then display options related to
#1 in #2, then it displays related options to #2 in #3, then display
options related to #3 in #4.

What I need to do now, is when you select an option for #4, it displays
results related into a textbox.

If you need the code I currently have I can send that. If someone is
awesome in jscript and could write the whole code up, thats fine.

I really just need help to push me in the write direction. Currently is
uses arrays.

Make Around 3 Drop Down Menus?

Feb 4, 2005

I want to make around 3 drop down menus ... where the content in each drop down list is based on the users previous selection from the previous drop down menu ..

for example, suppose we have the following information
Honda : <model names> from 1990-2005
Toyota: <models name> from 2000-2005
ford : <model names> from 2000-2003
etc....

the first drop down menu is of course "Make" and the next is "year" then "Model"

how can i make it so that if the user selects Honda then only information about honda appears in the next two menus .. and when they select year ... then only Honda models from that year will appear in the final menu, "model".

Create 2 Different Drop Down Menus Which Are Chained?

Mar 27, 2010

I am trying to create 2 different drop down menus which are chained.

First drop down menu: options 1, 2, 3, and 4

Second drop down menu: options 1, 2, 3 and 4

However for the first drop down menu, if you choose the number then that number cannot be selected again on the second drop down menu. So if i pick 4 on the first drop down. then only 1, 2, and 3 should show up on the second drop down OR if you pick 4 on the second drop down it gives you an error saying you selected that value.

Here is the complicated part that I cannot figure out.

I want each drop down menus on two different pages and not on the same page. So after you select the submit button on the first drop down it should go to another page with the second drop down.. Has anyone seen this before.

Jquery :: Drop Down Menus Not Working In IE

Apr 22, 2011

In addition to an accordion-related problem in IE (URL...), I'm having a headache regarding drop down menus.this is only in IE (version 8) - every other browser in the known galaxy responds well to the JS and the HTML setup.The idea is there's a horizontal nav bar of five 'blocks', each with a heading. Hover over the heading and the 'block' (actually an <li>) extends to accommodate a small sentence underneath with a link. Hover off, and the block shrinks back to its original form, with the link hidden.All good in FF, Opera, Safari, Chrome. In IE, though, the <li> block doesn't extend - the link is shown beneath it, but it's outside its frame and looks awful.

Creating A Form Containing Two Drop Down Menus?

Aug 28, 2011

I am creating a form containing two drop down menus. The second drop down changes every time a user change the selection on the first drop down. So, I have this line below:

Code:

<select name="province" id="province" class="mobileform" onchange="changeCities()">

The problem is when a user (in this case me) is using an iPhone's Safari, when he hits "next" button on the first drop down, it does not change the content of the second drop down. But when he hits "previous", then "next" again, the selections get updated afterwards.

In a shorter sentence, the event listener does not work on the first hit, but it works on the second hit. What am I missing here? What steps do I need to add?

JQuery :: Populating Dynamically-populated Page After Ajax Operation

May 25, 2011

I'm just now trying to get my head around AJAX in general and jQuery's AJAX specifically.I have a table that is generated from php/mysql. A sample of the rendered page can be seen here. I've also attached a text document with the php code that generates the page.What I'm trying to do is, when a user clicks on one of the edit buttons, I want to open a jQuery UI Dialog popup and populate a form with the current information for the class the user clicked on. Then, after the user clicks on a Submit button (and some basic validation), jQuery's ajax() sends the data for processing to a php script. Upon successfully processing the changes to the class I want to close the Dialog popup and show the changes in the table on the main page.[code]
