OnSubmit After Checking Return False And Still Submit
Jan 16, 2008
I have tested me functions and even when it returns false the form still submits?
Im not sure how i can stop it submiting even if it returns false.
Then onSubmit called this function:
alert("it is false");
alert("it is true");
checkForm is working and is throwing alerts when certain criteria is not correct in the form, and then i will get an alert "it is false" so i know that the script is running until then, but the form will still submit?
This is my first post here, but reading through the others I'm sure someone will be able to help me.I trying to build a client-side validator before running my validation in php. I have a <form onSubmit="function(login name, login password)"> type deal and in my function, I'm returning false if certain criteria aren't met.
the form's action runs it back to the current URL where I have a php validator activated if the post data is recognized. As of now, both are running, which tells me the form is being submit regardless of that return false.
im trying to learn how jquery ajax function works by validating some form after submit is clicked.
the alert didnt pop until i added the registration_ok = false; right before, so im assuming it has something to do with the ajax functions's scope.... why does the ajax function not affect the registration_ok variable outside the function? and how should i solve this problem? any better way of doing it?
I'm running into a bit of trouble while trying to cancel the submit of a form. I've been following this tutorial (http:[url]....) (even though i'm not making a login script), and it seems to be working for him.Here's my form:
But there is a "return false;" in the "onclick" of the button. If this "return false" is removed, the code works as I would hope it would. With it there, doOnSubmit is never called. Code:
The browser being used throughout the company is IE8 under Windows XP. I have checked the version being used on their comptuer and it is 8.0.6001.18702, which is the same version as the one installed on my local machine which is working fine. Another user has logged into the computer being used by the user with the issues and it works fine for the second user.
i am learning JS at school and it is going pretty well. One concept I seem to be having trouble with is Return False; I understand that it is used when working with boolean types, but I seem to see it in other places as well, apparently to stop a function from doing something. I was wondering if someone had a good reference that explains the difference uses of return false.
The "View All Show Times" href should toggle a show/hide div. All of sudden, it's not working IE 6 (FireFox and IE 7 work fine). This never happened until today. Could an altered browser setting have caused this behavior as I didn't change the code? It looks like return false is not firing.
I'm developing am income tax calculator, and everything is going swell. Currently the user can type in their adjusted gross income (AGI), hit submit, and learn the amount of income tax they would pay, their tax rate, and their income after tax.
I've played around with the events to get the submit button to work in FF, IE, Chrome and Safari -- and I've gotten the enter button to work before with some stock code, but here's the catch: when the user presses enter, i want the focus to leave the input box. I don't care where it goes (submit button, I suppose?) but i need it to leave the input field so the onfocus="clearText(this);" event can fire when they return to type in a new income.
I am attempting to create a stop in the form action if someone leaves the input blank or with the predefined "Search" however, once the alert pops up and a user presses "OK" it still attempt to submit the form.
Lets say I have a MySQL value of 4... and I have a HTML INPUT field.. Is there a way to make it so that if a client tries to submit a value higher than 4, then they will be returned a message? Something like:
