Is there a way to set the focus on a form field without using focus()? I use ajax to build the form and if I try to set the focus using focus() an error is generate because of the form hasn't been built by ajax. So, it would be nice if I could set the focus() as I built the form.
I need to use string split to get two outputs for an email address, one output the user name and the second to be the domain name, for example email@example.com needs to be seperated at the @ symbol so one output would be the xxxx and the second would be xxxx.com. How to get the second output right.
I have a web site where multiple html pages are opened at a time & messages are received or those pages are refreshed automatically using meta-tag.
I've got a strange problem in IE that I wonder if anyone has seen before. Basically, I've got a two window scenario. The parent window opens the child via window.open(). The child contains a form and submissions are processed in the child window. When the child window form is submitted and the results are returned, an alert box is thrown up via setTimeout("alert(....)", 2000). For some odd reason, when this alert is displayed, focus is transferred back to the parent window with the alert box on top. When you press the OK button on the alert, focus is transferred back to where it should be; on the child window. This doesn't happen all the time. But it happens. Is there something I can do to solve this mystery?
This JS code is on RoR+ImgMap site.I've tweak several portion of ImgMap, specifically around line 2205 of the file imgmap.js by adding code.so that when the user draws a shape, the focus will be set to the respective href field, instead of the default behavior - adding new row(imgmap form).
i'm using a shopping cart template and i do NOT want to require that shoppers have to enter their email address. how do I disable the requirement, but still ensure if they do type it in, that the format is correct (i.e. firstname.lastname@example.org)?
I have a web form that requests a user full name and email address. What I would like to do is when the user fills in the full name in one input box, I would like to take the full name and populate the email address field as such. "email@example.com". So pretty much split the full name and popluate email address field "firstname.lastname@example.org".
I have a form that i wish the entered fields to be emailed to 2 addresses; my address (bcc) and the email address that the user has entered in the email field on the form. Before you say it, I know that 'mailto' is not a recommended method but it the only one I can use (due to restrictions at work). Below is the code I am using but it doesn't seem to like [document.forms.request.email.value]. I know it works (including the validation) when I just enter an email address in the code but it doesn't using the email form field.
I have a script that runs when the page is loaded to set focus to a field. If I have an alert immediately before I call focus() on the field everything is good. If the alert isn't there, the cursor never shows up in the field...however, it scrolls to the textbox and if I hit tab I move to the field immediately following it which would indicate I really do have focus on the field, yet the cursor isn't there so I can't start typing in the field. I thought it might be an issue with the page not being fully loaded but if that is the case why does it scroll down to the field and move to the next field after hitting tab. This is a hard one to explain and what complicates it more is that it's in an AJAX responseText environment so it's hard to nail down. Any ideas on this?
I'm using JS to dynamically change the CSS attrib's of User Input Fields in a form. It works fine for text input fields but does not seem to work at all for TEXTAREAS. (IE6) Is there a tweak that might overcome this limitation? Code:
I have a set of fields(text) that are populated with data. When you tab through the fields some show focus by highlighting the entire word while others do not. What is the reason for this and can I force the highlighting?
