JQuery :: Make An Image Label That When Clicked Will Change From One Label To Another

May 3, 2011

How can I make an image label that when I clicked will change from one label to another.

Let say I have index.html where my label is displayed. Then I have label01.jpg to label20.jpg stored on label sub folder.

What I want is to be able to change my label one at a time from label01.jpg to label20.jpg everytime i click the label. then go back to label01.jpg after label20.jpg

For illustration purpose, see image below. I want the label to change every click until I got the label right for the video screen. I have 20 video screen in one page and I need to change the labels depending on the video.

Actually a more preferred solution is for the script to cycle through all the pictures on my label folder so that if I have new labels I only need to dump it in the folder and it will become available.

AppendChild To After First Tag?

Jan 30, 2010

I have this body:

<div id="d1">content</div>
<!--I want to append a div right here-->
<div id="d3">content</div>

I have this javascript code which would add a div after div id="d3":

var adiv = document.createElement("div");

How could I modify my javascript code so that instead of adding to the end, making it the last tag, it would be the second tag?

AppendChild In Greasemonkey

Jul 23, 2005

I'm using the following code in a Greasemonkey script.

var start, newElement;
start = document.body;
newElement = document.createElement('b');
newText = document.createTextNode("The Greasemonkey salutes you!");

Can anyone tell me: 1) why my string appears twice; 2) how to make it
appear just once?

I'm trying to insert code at the top of every viewed page. Obviously,
document.body appends the string to the closing body tag which is not
what I want. What could I use to insert my code as the first childnode
under 'body'?

AppendChild To Something Already Appended?

Nov 29, 2009

Over the last couple years I've built up a DOM library. Nothing fancy, you can just create an element with all its attributes in one function. What I've wanted to do is make it so you can determine the parent element of the newly created element. Works supa in firefox, not so supa in IE.This is my code....

pollOptions = document.getElementById("pollOptionsContainer");/*new divs to organize it in*/
pollOptionsGroupContainer = buildHtml.createDivHTMLElement(pollOptions);

AppendChild(), Remove Child()

Jul 23, 2005

I am trying to create one image using JavaScript; then later in the script
remove the image - not just remove the src. The following creates the image, but I have been unable to remove it.

How do I structure
document.getElementById('num1').removeChild(image_ display); ?

<input type=file name="picture1" onChange="image(this.value, 'num1');"
<div id='num1'></div>

<script type="text/javascript">
function image_size(field, num){
document.getElementById('num1').appendChild(image_ display);
document.getElementById('num1').removeChild(image_ display);

Invalid Argument With AppendChild

Jul 23, 2005

If I try to append a PARAM tag twice I'm having problems:

var.medDiv = document.getElementById("myDiv");

var medObj = document.createElement("object");

var p = document.createElement("param");

p = document.createElement("param");
medObj.appendChild(p); // <-- this one


The line with the "this one" comment triggers IE to tell me that it has
an invalid argument. If I change the order of the PARAMs then the new
second PARAM will give me the error. If I move the setAttribute to after
the appendChild I still get the error.

IE 6 Caching IMG Problem Using AppendChild()

Nov 23, 2005

This example
will show that the first call to "doit()" will print 30 times the image
with only one call to the server. Then I have a timeout and call doit()
again, and this time, it downloads the picture 30 times!!!! It doesn't
even time to finish downloading the pictures before the next timeout
kicks off and if I let it go for a minute or two i have like 300 calls
to download the same image trying to be downloaded!

I heard about a bug in IE that would require to preload the images
using a hidden div, but that didn't work. I see that google maps manage
to not having to reload the image and gets it from cache. What am I
doing wrong? This works perfectly in Firefox (i.e. it uses the cache
and calls the server just once). Code:

AppendChild Custom HTML Tag For IE

Nov 23, 2005

I have a custom HTML tag: <custom>text is here</custom>

I can do anything I would like in terms of calling methods with mozilla
but not IE 6. For instance calling appendChild in IE results in an
error. The innerHTML property is blank even though there is text
between the tag.

Is there a work around for IE. What gives with IE and being able to
access and manipulate custom tags??

Firefox Doesn't Like AppendChild()

Nov 19, 2006

I have 2 list boxes - one to fill the second one based on the selection, or
move all items. You can remove the selection (or all items) from the second
one to place it back in the first one. I expanded my horizons and thought
to use script based on the js node operation appendChild(). It seemed so
clean and easy to follow. Works beautifully in IE, but Firefox sees the
value for a nanosecond but doesn't put it in the box. This is the relevant

function addSide(){
var addIndex = document.forms[0].sides.selectedIndex;

if (addIndex >= 0)

function delSide(){
var selIndex = document.forms[0].selectedSides.selectedIndex;
if (selIndex >= 0)

function addAll(){
var len = document.forms[0].sides.length -1;
for(i=len; i>=0; i--){

function delAll(){
var len = document.forms[0].selectedSides.length -1;
for(i=len; i>=0; i--){

Is there a way to make it work for FF, or do I need to just start over and
not use appendChild()? Is there a better way?

CloneNode/appendChild And Children

Apr 30, 2007

I'm playing around with some AJAX-ish stuff and
encountered some problem in the JS side of the universe. Maybe someone
here can suggest an alternative that works.

I have developed a simple ASP.NET application with a web page that
should display a list of users. This list page is designed to start
with an empty table (with columns defined), and, onload, send an
XmlHttp request to a server component (a.k.a. ListServer). This
ListServer is currently simulating a long-running operation. So, it
sleeps for 3 seconds, and then grabs a list of 4 users from an xml
file. It applies an xsl transformation and returns the result.

The xslt is designed to take the xml data and convert it to a
<ListChunkroot element containing a <trfor each user in the XML
data. Each row contains 4 columns (Id, Login, Password, Name). The
javascript in the list page grabs the responseXML from the XmlHttp
object and should, for each <trin it, create a copy of the row
coming from the server and adding it to the list on the client.

I actually got all that to work quite fine. The js snipplet dealing
with copying the row coming from the server and adding it to the table
on the client is: Code:

AppendChild / CloneNode + Frames + Ie = :(

Mar 31, 2004

The problems I am having are with trying to get IE to successfully clone a referenced node from one frame and inport it (with all form values etc) to another frame.
Moz works fine with

oFilters = document.getElementById('saveElement');

I have tried iterating the specified node and using createElement to create a copy in the desired place, which works fine with simple input type text or hidden. The first snag comes when trying the same with textareas. The cloned form doesn't submit the values :(

Any ideas? Code:

AppendChild(cloneNode) Problem

Oct 14, 2004

I am working on a sortable table (full code in attachment). I solved all the intermediate steps till the end when, to my surprise, appenChild() method inserts some previous cloneNodes in looped rows in a peculiar mode, by leaving the end tags </tr> at the end of the table. So far:

1.- build the cloneNodes of the rows as an array, and each index as a paralel array:

//some needed variables on later

//array of rows and rows indexes
var oRows = new Array()
var iRows = new Array()
for(var i=1;i<nr.length;i++){
//so far so good, alert shows me what i needed

2. - build an array with the content of the correspondent cells on column and sort this array. The array is double and keep the genuine row's index for later use as each second element. Code:

Javascript Recursive AppendChild Function

Aug 1, 2005

I am coding an AJAX DHTML whatever application and I was fed up with
always typing a lot of appendChild() functions.

I created a custom one called append_children() and wanted to share it
if anyone need such a function.

function append_children() {
var a = append_children.arguments;
for ( var i = a.length - 1; i > 0 ; i-- ) {
try {
} catch(e) {
for ( var j = 0; j < a[i].length; j++ ) {
append_children(a[i-1], a[i][j]);

Simplifying AppendChild For Multiple Elements

Oct 12, 2006

I have a rather old script that uses XMLHttpRequest to retrieve some
html and pops it into a div using innerHTML. I'd like to switch over to
using append child since not only is it standardized, but it'll save me
bandwidth in the long run. Code:
