Writing Out To A Text File With Javascript

Jul 23, 2005

What I want to do is create a HTML form that allows the user to enter data
into about 10 fields, and then based on the entered data, writes out data
strings to a text file. I am attempting to create a form for entering
simple rectangle CAD data via a HTML form, which will be written to a text
file, and then imported into a CAD program.

The form would contain prompt boxes for things like length, width, radius
size, step/repeat, etc. When the user hits the "SUBMIT" button, the data
strings would be written out to the filename the user specified. Below is
an example of data strings to be ouputted. Variables are &L, &W, &R,
&STEPX, &STEPY, &XN, &YN.

Dynamically Writing Html/javascript From A Javascript Function

Jul 23, 2005

I'm working on some code and am running into brick walls. I'm trying
to write out Javascript with Javascript and I've read the clj Meta FAQ
and didn't see the answer, read many similar posts (with no luck
though), and searched through the IRT.ORG Faqs
(www.irt.org/script/script.htm).

The Javascript is designed to open an popup window and then inside that
window call another script which will resize that window. There may be
another way around this but the reason I tried this approach initially
was that I wanted to call the onload handler in the popup window to
resize the image only after the image had completely loaded. I've had
some code in the primary Javascript file (showimage.js) before that
works if the image has been cached but on the first load, it doesn't
resize properly which tells me it is probably because it is trying to
resize the window based on the image size but it isn't completely known
at that point. So I removed that code and tried placing the resizing
code in the second Javascript file (resizewindow.js). BTW I've tried
other code to open a popup image and automatically size it ie Q1443 at
irt.org but that doesn't do exactly what we need.

Even if there is another way to do this with one file, I still want to
figure out why this isn't working in case I run into it in the future.

I thought what I would need to do to use document.writeln to write
Javascript would be to escape any special characters and to break
apart the script tag ie

document.writeln('</SCRIPT>');

would become

document.writeln('</SCR' + 'IPT>');

I have a HTML page and 2 Javascript files. All files are in the same
directory and have permissions set correctly.

Here are the 3 files (keep in mind wordwrap has jacked up the
formatting):

index.html
----------
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<html>
<head>
<title>Test</title>
<SCRIPT type="text/javascript" LANGUAGE="JavaScript1.1"
SRC="showimage.js">
</SCRIPT>
</head>

<body>
Click the house<BR>
<A ONCLICK="newWindow1('house1.jpg','Nice House')"><IMG
SRC="house1thumb.jpg"></A>
</body>
</html>


showimage.js
------------
function newWindow1(pic,sitename)
{

picWindow=window.open('','','width=25,height=25,sc rollbars=1,resizable=1');
picWindow.document.writeln('<html> <head>');
picWindow.document.writeln('<SCR' + 'IPT type="text/javascript"
LANGUAGE="JavaScript1.1" SRC="resizewindow.js"></SCR' + 'IPT>');
picWindow.document.writeln('</head>');
picWindow.document.writeln('<body onload="resizewindow();">');
picWindow.document.writeln('<img src=' + pic + '>');
picWindow.document.writeln('</body> </html>');
picWindow.document.close();
}

resizewindow.js
---------------
function resizewindow()
{
// Do resizing here.
// Right now this isn't being executed
alert("resizing window");
}


Can anyone provide some pointers as to why this javascript is failing?
I'm using IE6 on Win2k and when I click on the image to open the popup
window, it does open the window but it is white with no content and the
system immediately goes from about 4% CPU usage to 100% and
consistently stays there until I kill that window with the task
manager.

How To Display A Text File Using Javascript

Apr 3, 2006

Is there any sample code to use Javascript to load and display a text
file?

It will be best if the user can select files using some kind of
explorer. If that's complex, a text box to specify the file name will
be fine as well. Once a text file is selected, I just need to display
it in a text box.

Writing A PHP And Javascript Generated Page To A PHP Variable...

Sep 3, 2006

I have a form that posts data to a PHP mailer page I have created. When
it goes to the PHP mailer page it reads some of the data and modifies
the page accordingly using Javascript (hiding certain divs, etc...). My
goal, is to take all this data after it has been processed by
Javascript and send it through my PHP mailer as it is currently
formatted.

If it helps any, the track I am on right now involves encapsulating the
Javascript processed block in a div. I am then trying to take the
..innerHTML data from that div and store it in the PHP $message variable
for my mailer. This won't work because PHP is server side. So, I moved
on to generate some Javascript code (with PHP) that sends all that
messy HTML data that its processed through a URL variable to then be
read by PHP. This doesn't really accomplish what I want as it cuts off
about a quarter of the way through my data......

Any ideas??

One thing I thought of but don't know how to do or whether it's even
possible is using PHP to view the source of the current page and store
that as the HTML to be e-mailed. Or, is it possible to do something
similar to .innerHTML with PHP?

Writing To Firefox/Mozilla Javascript Console

Apr 13, 2005

Firefox has a Javascript Console that has 3 panels besides "All" and "Clear": "Errors", "Warnings", "Message".

Does anyone know a way to log a message in the Message panel with JavaScript? That would really help debugging. I know there's a way involving XPCOM, but that only works with "trusted" scripts, and scripts loaded thru html aren't trusted.

}
function functionName2() {
window.document.form1.t1.value = ''

Including A Javascript External File From The <body> Part Of An HTML File

I got an [object error] from IE 7.0.5730.11 when moving the <script
src="..." type="text/javascript" /tag from the <headpart to the
<bodysection of a HTML file.

Is not possibile to include Javascript code via <script src="..."
type="text/javascript" /from the <bodysection, instead from the
<headone? If yes, anyone has any idea of which the problem could be?
If not, how can I programmatically include a javascript external file
inside the <bodypart of a HTML file, for example, using Javascript
to some particular native functions?

Reading External Text File - Load The Content Of The File Into A Variable In Script

Jul 16, 2010

I'm writing a script and I've encountered a problem.. I have a txt file with many words, each word in a different line. For example: the file words.txt contains:

word1
word2
word3
word4
word5

I need to load the content of the file into a variable in my script. I prefer that all the words will be in the same variable with line breaks, but if you'll figure out a way to put it in an array, it's ok too. I really don't know how to do it, and I tried to google but didn't understand.. By the way, I don't want to change the txt file to js file, I need it to remain txt..

How Do I Insert A Text File Just Like An <img> File?

Aug 19, 2006

I have a folder of images from which I access individual pictures using the ID[Who] variable index passed down from the parent frame plus a local index variable p.

document.write('<img src="Photos/'+ID[top.Who]+p+'.jpg" width="100" border="3"><BR>');

where an example file in Photos is PhotosAndiamo1.jpg, the ID in this case resolving to "Andiamo" and the local variable is = 1. This works great.

I would like to add a file of text captions associated with the pictures, preferably saved in the Photos folder such as PhotoAndiamo1.txt.

While I can fetch the images easily by document.writeing the <img ....> command, how do I do a similar fetch for the text data and document.write it to the HTML? (Short of the hassle of creating text images and fetching those.)
