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...

Detecting When The Select Element's Dropdown List Is Open And/or Closed

Jul 20, 2005

I need to know when the select element's dropdown list is opened (as when the user clicks on the arrow or does ALT-downarrow from the keyboard). Similarly, I need to known when the dropdown list closes.

The closing of the dropdown list can happen without changing the dropdown, hence the onchange event is not a sure way to determine that the dropdown list closed.

Is this possible in Internet Explorer?

Conditional SELECT Element - Determined By Original Select Element On Page Load?

Jul 31, 2009

When the page loads there will already be a drop-down on the page, here's an example of the drop down.

<select id="dropdown">
<option value="2121S">Option text</option>
<option value="2122S">Option text</option>
<option value="2123S">Option text</option>
<option value="2121A">Option text</option>
<option value="2122A">Option text</option>
<option value="2121K">Option text</option>
</select>

On page load it will evaluate this drop-down and repopulate it determined on their values. If there is an S in any of the values the drop-down will generate an option for 'S' like so.. <option value="s">S Option Text</option> And for the first code example in this post - the Javascript would be able to repopulate the drop-down with the following:

JQuery :: Auto-select A Select Box On Postback With User's Selection

Feb 12, 2010

I have a ColdFusion page with a select drop down list. On submit, I'm storing the value in a cfparam and trying to use jQuery to auto select that particular option. Currently I'm using :contains but this is unacceptable because it selects the last item that contains the cfparam.

$("option:contains('<cfoutput>#form.company_type#</cfoutput>')").attr('selected', 'selected');
Is there something like this:
$("option").equals('<cfoutput>#form.company_type#</cfoutput>')").attr('selected', 'selected');

[Code]....

I willconsider other alternatives to accomplishing my objective.

How To Auto Populate A Dropdown Tab.

Oct 5, 2005

I am creating a site that has to do w/ pets. I want users to be able to select the type of pet they have from the first dropdown and then select from the second dropdown from choices dependant upon what they chose in the first dropdown.

So if they choose 'dog' as a pet type in the first drop down. I want the second drop down to display 'dog breeds'. If the choose 'cat' as a pet type I want the second drop down to display 'cat breeds'. This is what I have thus far.

My data table: Contains PetType(Column 1) and BreedType(Column 2)

My page form calls these two criteria Pet Type and Breed

I want to be able to insert this script into my form's HTML footer. Code:

SELECT OnChange Auto Fill Other SELECT Boxes

Jul 25, 2002

I searched here and some other places on the net but cant find anything that suits my needs. I have a SELECT box with 3 values Code:

<form name="form1">
<select name="length">
<option name="length" value="none">--Select for All--</option>
<option name="length" value="5">--5 Days--</option>
<option name="length" value="7">--7 Days--</option>
<option name="length" value="10">--10 Days--</option>
</select>
</form>

OnChange, I want to invoke a function that auto populates the rest of the SELECT fields in the form. The select boxes will vary in quantity as the page is dynamic, but the values are always the same (like the code above).

Does this make sense?

Auto Text Field Populate Based On Dropdown

Feb 22, 2011

I've looked around and from what I can tell, the code seems right. Basically crating a JS array and passing PHP values to it to use in an onChange to fill a text field. The dropdown gets populated fine but the text field does not autopopulate onChange. I'm not too fluent with JS but have a good analytical mind and from what I can see, the logic seems right.

<?php
include('connectdb.php');
$CENTRE = $_SESSION['centreAFB'];
$qryFormList = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM tblLogin WHERE ACCT_TYPE = '2' AND loginCENTRE = '$CENTRE' ORDER BY loginNOM");
echo "<script type='text/javascript'> var formCourriel = new Array()";
while($resFormList = mysql_fetch_assoc($qryFormList))

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');

Auto-Populate Text Field Based On DropDown List Selection

Dec 3, 2009

I have set up my website quite some time ago that has served its purpose very well, however I will now be adding an order form functionality. So far, by reading books and traversing forums, I have been able to develop a page where the user
1.Enters data into the required fields, that is then submitted to a MYSQL database via PHP,
2.Can retrieve orders that are stored in the database,
3.Delete orders that are stored in the database.

I have wamp installed on my computer as the webserver. I have also incorporated two drop down lists that both retrieve their values from tables within the database. The first drop down list retrieves the Australian States that I have stored in a table, and once the submit button is pressed, it stores the State that is selected to a separate table. This drop down list functions as it should. An extract from "From Place an order.php"

<?php
$dbcnx = @mysql_connect('localhost', 'root', 'tingling');
if (!$dbcnx) {
exit('<p>Unable to connect to the ' .
'database server at this time.</p>');
} .....

The second drop down list retrieves product names from a table that contains products and their prices. What I would like to happen, is that when the product is selected from this drop down list, a text box is automatically filled with its corresponding price. I had this drop down list working as per the "States" drop down list, but could not get it to auto populate the text field. I got some assistance from a friend and was able to get the text box to auto populate with its corresponding price, however when the page was submitted to the database, the "id" number of the product name from the drop down list was stored, and not the product name.

<select name="productSelection" onchange = "getProductDetails(this)">
<option selected value="1product">Select Product</option>
<?php
$products1 = @mysql_query('SELECT * FROM products');
if (!$products1) {
exit('<p>Unable to obtain author list from the database.</p>'); .....

JQuery :: Make A Dropdown Menu Reappear After An Auto - Redirect And Clicking The Back Button?

Oct 25, 2011

Within my code below, when selecting 'Animals'in the dropdown menu a second dropdown menu appears.Selecting any item within this second dropdown menu causes a page redirect. When you click the back button in the browser, this second dropdown menu disappears in every browser besides Firefox. I want the user to be able to change their animal selection, e.g. choose 'Cat' first, then go back and choose 'Bird'.

I don't understand why the second dropdown menu disappears, going 'back' should display the page as it was. Is there any way to get the second dropdown menu to reappear without using a jQuery history plugin? This code does not behave as I have described in jsfiddle, so have pasted it here:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function() {

I am executing a simple example of selecting the item from the dropdown list by using the value of a textbox.

Now suppose if I type red into the textbox then leave the textbox then automatically the dropdown list value should be selected to red value if it contains red value item.
