JavaScript Disabled Alert

May 21, 2006

I have a form that uses javascript for validation and cost calculating to place an order.

If someone has their javascript disabled, they will be able to submit the form, but without the cost figures showing up.

I want to prevent the user from submitting the form, but alert them that they need to enable JS to fill in/submit the form?

Is this possible? What do I need?

Need To Cancel A Javascript Alert/confirm Box

Jul 23, 2005

A description of the problem:
1) Go to a page with various settings and a timeout (forces re-login
if over 10 minutes)
2) Before the timeout, make some changes to settings.
3) Press a "reset to defaults" button that uses a confirmation box to
let the user know what is about to be reset (lists items).
4) Walk away while the confirm box is displayed and come back after
the page timeout.
5) My screen now has the page, a confirm popup on top of that, and a
timeout alert on top of that.
6) Press OK to dismiss the timeout alert. The underlying page goes to
the login screen, but the confirm box remains.

How can I clear any javascript alert/confirm popups in this situation

Hyperlink And Mailto Within JavaScript Alert Box?

Jan 31, 2006

I'm sure there's a way to accomplish this...without continually beating my head against my keyboard. Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction.

How do I add a hyperlink within a JavaScript alert box? And how would I add a mailto link within a JavaScript alert box? I've read the post a few below mine with the response being to use a DIV instead. How would I do that?

Javascript Alert/Confirm Dialogs And I18N

Apr 3, 2006

I'm pretty sure after reading this board and many like it that it is
impossible to change the ok, ok/cancel buttons that appear by default
in the alert and confirm javascript dialogs. Now for question one why
not? And question two why do they still say ok and ok/cancel when
viewed in a non-english browser install?

I have installed Chinese IE 6.0 and these buttons still say Ok/Cancel.
the rest of the browser (buttons, menus, etc...) is in Chinese except
for these two stupid buttons. No one final question, whould having a
reginonal OS installed make any difference. Right now I'm using an
English OS but with the Chinese browser mentioned above.

Javascript Alert / Popup Query On Deleting Records...

Dec 27, 2007

On some sites I have worked on, users can delete content from their site. When they go to delete an item, I take them to a page where I pull the item details of the item they are about to delete from the dbase, and say "Are you sure you want to delete so and so". They can choose Yes / No. Yes takes them to action that runs the SQL to delete the item from the dbase. No takes them to the previous page.

I have seen some sites that have managed this process differently, where, instead of being taken to another page, a little pop up box opens saying "Are you sure", with a Yes / No option on it. Yes takes you to delete the item, No leaves them on the page they are on.

Am I right that this method uses Javascript? I know that it won't work if javascript is turned off, but - most people don't turn it off...

How to write a function f(x) or f('x') so that it produces the same output
as a call to alert-function:

var x='abc'


In testing one needs to write similar alert() calls often. By having a
function f(), which would add the variable name in front of the variable
value one would save a lot of typing during one's lifetime.

Alert Box Failure

Jul 23, 2005

I am trying to get an alert box with line breaks in it. I want to display a couple pieces of information, and want them broken up. I tried using to get a new line, but kept getting errors in my code.

alert("The combination you have selected: " + + "Background Color: " + color1 + + "Text Color: " + color2)

Of course color1 and color2 have been declared and defined, so I know there isn't an error there.

Asynchronous Alert?

Oct 24, 2007

I am using AJAX and coldfusion, and am having trouble getting some
alerts to work. I am using the http object in javascript:
var url="add_item.cfm"

then, in add_item.cfm, I am just using:
<script type="text/javascript">window.alert("Hello World

but the alert isn't being displayed. I assume this has to do with
client-side/server-side issues, but can someone please clarify why
this doesn't work, and perhaps offer a fix or alternative solution?
