SetTimeout() Syntax Convert Expression To Literal String?
Apr 16, 2011
<p> Howdy <p> expressed as a literal string that is passed to the setTimeout() function might look like this: setTimeout("document.getElementById('first').innerHTML = '<p>' + 'HOWDY' + '</p>';", 2000);
I guess you can't just put quotes around an expression like this: "'<p> HOWDY </p>;" So tags have to be isolated, but it get confusing with expressions like this, which I am not sure how to express as a string:
I wish I could change the " in there to ' and then just wrap the whole thing in double " This is what I came up with but it did not work: setTimeout("document.getElementById('first').innerHTML = '<p>' + '<h2' + 'class='pos_left'' + '>' + '<img' + 'src='car1.jpg'' + 'name='slide'' + 'width='400'' + 'height='250'' + '/>' + '</h2>' + '</p>';", 4000);
i'm a newbie on jquery i'm studying it with the latest version, and following a book called "Learning Jquery" but iencountered a error, and i don't know what the problem is:
i copied the code from the book like this:$('a[@href^="mailto:"]').addClass('mailto'); to try to change the links which start with "mailto" to the new class "mailto" but there's a error reported: uncaught exception: Syntax error, unrecognized expression: [@href^="mailto:"]
I created a simple WYSIWYG for creating CSS based webpages. It works exactly as assumed in Safari and Chrome. However, in firefox, when you copy/paste more than one line of text, instead of formatting it as html, in puts in line breaks causing the array storing all of the data to break into multiple lines and causing an unterminated string literal.
1. suggest why it is behaving this way? 2. suggest a work around to allow it to work on FF?
I am trying to create 3 elements on the fly when a button is clicked. The button is the show an upload form for images. I am using uploadify (first time using it) and I have several different upload type/options for them so I am sending id's to differentiate between them. The problem I am having is when trying to create the script tag which in turn controls the input file type tag, and it is baffling me. Here's the code first:
I can append a query string to a setTimeout?So i have this:PHP Code: setTimeout("location.hrefĀ = 'http://www.natural-environment.com';",1500); and i want to do this:PHP Code:var Email ="foo"; setTimeout("location.href = 'http://www.natural-environment.com?Email=+Emai+';",1500);
Is there an available function in jQuery that would let me extract certain string of characters in a given expression, say I have the expression "2|23|6|niece", i wanted to extract 2,23,6 and niece from the given expresion and assign each in a variable leaving the (" | ") character
I'm using class names of input elements as parameters for my validator. To find them i use Element.hasClassName(id, class) method from prototype library. I want to implement minlength parameter - so i grab a regexp tutorial and after a minute i had something like this minlength[[1-9][0-9]*], which finds minlength, minlength and so on.
Great, but how to pass this as a paramter to hasClassName method, which requires string as a className?
