Limit Number Of Selections In Multiple Select List Box

I'd like to limit the number of selections a user can make in a
multiple select listbox. I have a note on the interface to say that
only x no. of items should be selected and I check the number server
side but I'd like to implement some javascript to do the same on the
client side. Ideally I'd like the javascript to work in IE5+ and

JQuery :: Select List With Multiple Selections Hack
When using a select combo box that has multiple selections enabled, my server was not seeing it as an array. It was only seeing it as a single variable value. All I did to correct this was add [] and the end of the name attribute.
[code]<select name="categories[]" id="categories" multiple="multiple"
Now my LAMP server sees this variable as an array in the $_REQUEST

Struts Multiple Select Box Selections?
<html:select property="fields" multiple="true" style='width:200px;'>

fields is a String[] and fieldsOptions is an ArrayList I populate. When I do: var selected = document.forms[0].fields; It returns an array that has all of the options and not just the ones that have been selected.

JQuery :: Limit If A Value Can Be Selected In A Drop Down List (select) Based On Other List
I have a page that displays a list of people playing in a tournament. I need to be able to generate a Leaderboard based on which players are manually selected by the admin. Next to each person there is a drop-down list. An admin can go in and select a "slot" that a player should be in on the leader board from 1 to 8, or leave it blank if none. What I need to figure out how to do is the following, when a change event happens on a drop-down list, and say the value 5 is selected, I need to check to make sure that 5 is not already selected in one of the other players drop-down lists, in other words, that the 5th leaderboard slot is not already full. if it is, display an error message and make them change that one first. how to do that with jQuery? I'm thinking it will have something to do with the each() function, but not sure exactly how the logic should work.

JQuery :: Sortable - Limit Number Of Items In List?
I have a schedule table I'm using jQuiry Sortable for editing.

Each day is a UL, and each event is an LI.

My jQuery is:

$("#colSun, #colMon, #colTue, #colWed, #colThu").sortable({
connectWith: '.timePieces',
items: 'li:not(.lith)'

To make all LI's sortable except those with class "lith" (day names). User can drag an event from day to day, or add new events by clicking a button, which appends a new dragable event (LI) to the fist UL (Sunday).

I want to make each day accept only up to 10 events.

Limit The Number Of Options Displayed In An HTML Select Element Dropdown Menu?
Essentially the length of the HTML Select drop down is exceeding the screen on notebooks, I've checked and different browsers allow different amounts of options to be displayed before it turns it into a scrollbox. Is there any way of putting in a browser css hack or javascript action to stop it at 3 options? Failing that is there any way to limit the height of the drop down for the same effect?

I've googled up on this but with no such luck, no one seems to have had a problem with notebooks before. I know it's possible as on the Lloyds TSB personal login screen there is a select element which limits to about 3/4 options. As I say I don't mind using JS or even browser specific solutions as I've developed a notebook friendly way of doing it which is less intuitive and clunky looking but can be used as a default.

Loop Limit To Delete Select List Keeps Changing?
I'm trying to delete a HTML select list. This is what im using [code]...

DID just returns the actual HTML element. The problem is that only EXACTLY hald the list is being deleted. The Len parameter is changing because it relates to size, which related to the actual length of the list. So when i delete in the function its actually changing 'Length' and never reaching the actual end of the list.

Php - Can't Get Selected Values From A Multiple Select List To Insert Into Other Select List
I've been trying to get selected values from a drop down list on my page in order to swap them. I've tried looking for solutions online but I'm stumped. For some reason, s1[i].selected doesn't work at all. Here's my javascript code:

<script type="text/javascript">
function swaprows(s1, s2)
var items = "";


Because I'm doing a post action with the submit buttons I need to name my lists as selectsizes[] and selectedsizes[] respectively so that I can then pass their selected values via the post variable.

Jquery :: Limit Number Of Concurrent File Downloads For The Number Of Requests?
I have created an MVC.Net application and there is a download page from where users can download the setup file of approx 5MB in size. This setup file is generated dynamically when we hit the download button. Each dynamic generation of this setup file increase 7% of server CPU usage. Suppose the number of users increase at least 100 and all of them will try to download the file then the CPU usage will increase to 100% which will make the server down or it will un-responsive.

To overcome to this situation, we are trying to limit the total 5 downloads at a time logically by code. It means 5 users can download the files at a time and sixth onward users will be in queue until any first 5 downloads are not complete. Also we have to show the wait time to the queued users that "your download will begin in 28 seconds" or so.

Ajax :: Multiple Selections To JS?
I'm sorry if this question has been answered before, but I'm a real noob trying to understand Ajax and JavaScript.

Therefore I need a (simple) explanation how to pass multiple selections from a list to my Ajax-script - if there are any simple solutions.

I'm not using any kind of framework - just plain Ajax/JS, PHP and of course HTML.

Sum Of Multiple Dropdown Value Selections?
Not a seasonsed JS user; I would like to have a number of dropdown forms on a page and have JS sum the total value up as the user makes their way down the page and selects values. I've googled the daylights out of this and come up with a proof of concept below - if I could get it to work right, I would apply to a larger page. It will live on a Sharepoint server so I can't just use PHP to handle the summing.

Events - Display A Different Form For Different Selections Of This Drop Down List?
I want to display a different form for different selections of this drop down list:

<select name="type" id="type">
<option value="object" selected="selected">Object</option>
<option value="number">Number</option>


What would be the jQuery event that is triggered when a user selects one of these options. Would the .click() event be triggered in this case as well?

Coding HTML/JS Form With Multiple Selections?
I need help setting up a form, I want to do some pretty neat things: It will say: What countries do you want to visit? [FIELD] Part 1: I want that when a user starts typing into the field, it will suggest under things that match what you have typed so far, sort of like facebook search does. So I would need a list of recognized country names. Now for example imagine I was using this, and I typed in M, it would list under a max of 5 valid entries begining with M, if I typed in Me, it would list the ones begining with Me, if I typed in Mex, it would show Mexico. Now the user would have to click this drop down suggestion to choose it.Part2: I want once a user clicks on a suggestion, it will "pop under" the input box or somewhere, with a "x" beside it to remove it. The user can now type in another country, and when it is clicked it too appears as a sort of "icon" under the input box or somewhere, with an "x" beside it. Clicking the x removes the country from the current list of countries. Once he is done, he goes on to other fields and the selected countries remain visible. Once a user submits the form, I want to get only the countries that were visible to him.

**An alternative idea, if this one is too complicated, would be to have a drop list with all countries in it, and once a person clicks one, it will remain and a "+" sign will appear under it. When pressed, another dropdown menu will appear so the person can choose another country from the second drop down, etc. OFC all selected countries can have an X to remove them. Idk how to do this either. how to do something like this, where do you recommend I start? Any ideas? I tried searching but I'm not sure what to call this so I couldn't find anything in the search.
