I'm trying to come up with what is probably a kludge. What I'd like to do is take the responseText from an AJAX request -- which will be a full HTML page -- and parse it first to find if there is a <form>...</form> in it. If not I'll display a success message and all is fine, but if it's there, then I want to extract just that form section and display it within a <div> in the page.
This is where my JS skills are failing me. Can anyone point me to the applicable functions, tutorial, or whatever that would show me how to find the <form> and extract it and then replace my div contents with it (just innerHTML?).
I'm trying to write a widget for Mac OSX Tiger. Here's the problem: The user enters a search term which is sent to a perl script on a remote server. This script returns a fully formatted HTML page. I only want part of that page to be displayed. How do I go about doing this?
I am developing an application using AJAX and CSS. I have a webpage in which i have some hyperlinks. I want that when ever some one move the cursor on some link, than mini preview should be loaded before clicking. I have done that but problem is that i want just the ist paragraph of the target webpage not the whole page. I dont want images in my preview window.
I'm using $.ajax for an ajax request and I've setup a basic html form and if there are errors in the form when the user submits them my server side script is returning them in an array to the client with the errors.
If there are multiple values in the array, how do I display each error on its own line either using <li> tags or even just a <br/>? I'm injecting the ajax response into a div using .html() but how do I iterate the array within that div so I get one error message per line?
Do I need to construct the HTML on the client side after the ajax response has come back or should I do this on the server side before the data is even returned to the client? Right now I'm returning a raw array so that is why I'm asking the question about how to format things up and get the form errors into my div.
I'm sure this is probably a simple question, but I'm going to ask anyway. I need to extract part of a URL and place it into a variable for use elsewhere on the page. The part to be extracted will be of varying lengths.
As an example, if I have the following [URL] I need to extract "SS". Basically, anything that appears between "static.nsf/" and "/Steve's_APT_test_page". That value needs to be put into a variable and called elsewhere on the page. For testing purposes, I'm using the following code, just to see if it works (which, so far, it doesn't):
I want to use AJAX where the response from server side would be an XML with root element has two divs one for status with values success or failure and other child is HTML which needs to replaced if first div is success.
I 'm having an ajax function that polls a server for a response. This response is in fact an html page which is dynamically constructed on the server. What I want is to be a able to replace my current html page ( not only the body ) with the html I am receiving as response from the server. I tried using document.write or innerHTML on html element but none of these does not seem to work. Here is a sample of the code I am using. code..
This is a simple script I though of to get the filename of container for html.
Note: this only is tested on mozilla firefox 2 on windows vista
document.write("<a style='display:none' id='zFilenameFinder1' href=''>q</a>"); document.write("<a style='display:none' id='zFilenameFinder2' href='b'>q</a>"); var zDocURL = document.getElementById('zFilenameFinder1').href; var zCompareURL = document.getElementById('zFilenameFinder2').href; zCompareURL = zCompareURL.replace('b',''); var zFilename = zDocURL.replace(zCompareURL, ''); alert(zFilename)//filename handler
it works by creating two relative urls. one's href is blank, which when called by link.href returns the absolute value, giving the absolute link the page, then you compare it to a link that has a relative href of "b" which can be compared to the other link to give you the whole url
i was using $.ajax method to get my ajax page on my main page,which is working great.But now if i have links in that ajax page then i can't open them in that same div,the links are opening in new window,but i want to open in same part,i tried google it and then found, i have to use iframe instead of div.how to do with only use jquery and div.
I stumbled across jQuery while during a search for my project that involves parsing and extracting content from HTML pages. I have a collection of xpath strings that identifies the data I would like to extract. Wondering if I could use jQuery for this purpose.
However apparently some people seem to think this remote procedure call approach is a bad idea. I can't see why it is so bad because it is so lightweight and flexible. It also helps to keep the client less intellegent which seems good in a world of incompatible client-side bugs.
Now what i want to do is: i have a callajax() function. with in this function i will call do_login() function. this do_login() handles an ajaxrequest and returns the responsetext.
Now i want to do some validation on this responsetext(in case of onsuccess). so i am trying to return value to callajax() function for onSuccess case in ajaxrequest.submit();
That is(onsuccess response) supposed to be some string( but not true or false). but i am always getting false in ajaxcall() function. i know the do_login() function is returning false before ajaxrequest completes
So i want to stop this and make do_login wait until ajaxrequest completes and then i want to return it's response to callajax() function.
