Writting Unicode To A Form With Javascript

Dec 22, 2004

I have some javascript that is supposed to write values to a disabled textbox. This works great except for when what I'm trying to write is in unicode. Instead of getting the character, I get the &#<numbers>;. Does anyone know how to fix this?

document.myform.item.value = 'xyz' <--- Works fine.
document.myform.item.value = '&#22320' <--- Doesn't work.

Note: The semicolon for the unicode value was removed so that the unicode character won't be displayed.

Unicode Characters In JavaScript Files

Jan 3, 2007

I have a custom object named #cdata-section, however I am unable to
access this object and get a run time "Illegal Character" javascript
error. my object looks like this:


The pound sign is causing problems. How can I use this object in my
javascript source? Right now I'm trying something like this to escape
the pound sign:

summaryNode.appendChild(document.createTextNode(da ta.news.story[i].body.u0023cdata-section));

however, that doesn't work, any ideas?

Unicode Characters

Aug 2, 2007


Depending on an input value, I would like to output greek characters
(f. e. those between U+03B1 to U+03C9. One way would be to define two
arrays: one with the possible input values ("abgde...") and a second
array with the corresponding values ("u03b1u03b2u03b3...").

But I hoped I could skip the second by a computation, f.e. "g" has
index 2 in the first array, so output "u03b1"+2.

This does not work (of course). But do I have a chance to "compute"
the output value?

Unicode Characters In Javscript

Nov 21, 2007

case 'en':
var ERROR_CANNOT_BE_EMPTY = 'Cannot Be Empty.'
case 'gr':
var ERROR_CANNOT_BE_EMPTY = "&#945;&#946;&#948;&#963;&#966;&#962;&#949;&#964;&#961;&#962;;&#964;&#947;&#945;&#963;&#948;&#966;&#947;";

my problem is that the second statement which is in greek always appear in gibberish. or any greek that i write in my externally attached js file end up as gibberish when i display it in my html, in which i include the unicode utf-8.

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. ; (

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

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?

JavaScript Form

Oct 19, 2006

I am trying to make a form for my friends to fill in which will calculate their average score. Currently my script body is something like this Code:


<BODY bgcolor="C0C0C0">
<SCRIPT language="JavaScript">
alert("Please enter your scores. Thank You.")
var english = ??
var maths = ??
var geography = ??
var chinese = ??
var lit = ??
var psci = ??
var lsci = ??
var art = ??
var hist = ??
var mep = ??
var total = english + maths + geography + chinese + lit + psci + lsci + art + hist + mep
var subjects = 10
document.write("Your average is " + total / + subjects)

So what I was thinking was is it possible to make a form that will fill in the variables after they have typed it in and click ok, the variables will the be added and calculated to give the average.

I am trying to make a trivia game for a project that i'm doing, and i'm having some troubles. I have 5 questions stored in arrays, the 5 answers stored in a different array and those 5 answers wrote out in another array. I have 5 text boxes, one displaying the questions and the other 4 displaying the multiple choices. I also have 4 submit buttons, one for a, b, c and d. Now i just need to make sure that the answer the user picks is the right one. I was thinking, if there was a way to tell which submit box is clicked, that i would do something along that line, but if any one has a better way to do it then cool. Here's my code:

Javascript And Form Processing

Oct 12, 2005

I wish to carry out standard form validation (i.e. is it a date?, is
there a value in the field, is it a number) using the onBlur event
rather than the onSubmit event. This (of course) leads to problems when
cancelling an edit as leaving a field to press the cancel button will
trigger the onBlur event and therefore the field validation. Is there
any way to know the destination field / button that caused the onBlur
event? In Ingres ABF/W4GL (mid eighties language of similar
functionality to javascript) there was an available attribute called
the targetfield so the code could run...

onBlur myfield =
if (targetfield != CancelButton) {
carry out validation

Is there something similar in javascript or will I have to program
round the houses i.e. onBlur records which validation to run and
onFocus runs the validation (unless it's a cancel button)?
