JQuery :: Select Dynamically An Option In A Dropdown Select?

Aug 11, 2010

According to [URL] intended way for jQuery to change dynamically the selected option of a dropdown select control isassigningthe desired text instead of the value. I found this way veryinconvenient (data structures usually deal with value codes, not value descriptions) and it seems to work only sometimes.

Trying different options I came out with this approach that seems to do the job so
far:

function setSelect(pID,pSelectedValue)
{
$('#'+pID + ' option:selected').removeAttr('selected');

Select A Value In Dropdown List?

Jul 28, 2011

I am executing a simple example of selecting the item from the dropdown list by using the value of a textbox. The idea is: If I have a dropdown list, suppose with values red, blue, green, yellow and so on. And a simple html textbox. Now suppose if I type red into the textbox then leave the textbox then automatically the dropdown list value should be selected to red value if it contains red value item.

Onchange With Select Tag - Dropdown Box

Aug 26, 2011

I am using the OnChange event with the drop down box populated with countries.....but only works when certain countries are chosen.

When a country is chosen the OnChange event fires, passing a variable to the same page using the location.href.

Once this is done the onload within the body tag calls the function SetFocus() to the First Name text box.....which does not always work either.

Here is the code:

Position Absolute Does Not Go Above A Dropdown (<select>...)

Jul 23, 2005

I'm using the code below to display a menu that opens when the mouse
goes over the main menu item (try it in your browser to understand the
behaviour).

It uses "position:absolute" and a switch between "display='none'" and
"display=''".

However the problem is that
- in Internet Explorer 6 the dropdown (<select>...) always hides the
menu
- in Mozilla the menu is hidden initially but after clicking on the
text "Select" it isn't hidden.

How does that come and how can I overcome it?
I want the menu to be above the other stuff when it comes up. Code:

Select Element - How To Auto-dropdown?

Jul 23, 2005

In our current application we have a page whose sole purpose for existence
is to permit the user to select from a list (subsequent to our login page).
We would like to have the list drop down automatically when the visitor
arrives at the page, perhaps by using the onLoad event to call the dropdown
code. The problem is, the click() event does not drop down the list, as I
would have thought it might.

I can successfully fire other methods using the object.method() syntax. Our
form is named "test," the select is named "sel1," and the code
document.test.sel1.focus() in fact focuses the control,
document.test.sel1.selectedIndex=2 selects the third item, etc. Given that,
I would have thought that document.test.sel1.click() would cause a similar
result to clicking the control, i.e., dropdown of the select. Instead, all
that happens is what appears to be a very quick redraw of the selected
value's text (i.e., it flickers slightly).

I've tried preceding the call to click() with a call to focus(), and vice
versa. No joy. I've Googled on several combinations of search terms, but
either there's no information on how to accomplish this or it was deeper
than the 3-4 pages I followed down into each of the search results.

Anybody know if it is possible to do what we want, and if so, could you
point me to a link where I can find sample source?

Select An Item On A Dropdown List

Jul 27, 2005

I have have some values stored in javascript variables. I have a
<select> dropdown list whose options correspond to these values. I want
to be able to select an item on the dropdown list based on the value of
the javascript variable.

Let's say this is my list and my variable:

<select id='popup'>
<option value="default">--Please Choose a saying--</option>
<option value="hello">Hello</option>
<option value="goodbye">Goodbye</option>
</select>

var input = "hello";

Is there a way to select the 2nd option using using that variable
value? Something like:

var popup = document.getElementById("popup");
popup.selectedItem = input;

Getting IE6 To Auto-select An Item In A Dropdown

Mar 21, 2007

On this page (just a demo) I canít get IE6 to auto-select the first item
in the dynamically-generated drop-down menus. Well, that isnít entirely
true. Sometimes it works properly, but never on the first try. When it
fails, the error message it gives is:

"Cannot set the selected property. Unspecified error."

FF2, IE7, and OP9 all behave as expected. I have tried a variety of
workarounds to no avail. I don't have an exhaustive list of everything I
have tried, but it seems like I have tried a hundred ways of setting the
"selected" attribute.

The page uses jQuery 1.1.2. Currently the page is using...

$("#select-how option:first-child").attr("selected","selected");

....to auto-select the first item in the list.

Populating Inputs From Select Dropdown?

Jul 20, 2010

I am trying to populate inputs on a form from a select drop down list (with date being pulled from a mysql database). This is to allow for any changes that need to be possibly made.

Is this even possible? I've tried doing some internet research, and the books I picked up from the library don't seem to go into this at all, so I'm not even sure that what I want to do is possible. The only thing I can really seem to think is that i need to use onChange. But outside of that, i'm lost.

Multiple Dropdown Select Boxes?

Nov 19, 2010

I'm populating a couple of dropdown boxes from an xml file, but can't get them working independently. As you can seehtmwhen you select an item from the first select box (a polyline), itdisplays the corresponding item from the other box (a polygon), too.I found this answer on the google maps forum:"Don't know of an example, but building two select boxes isn'tdifficult: pass into your createMarker() function the relevant flag,and add the data to one of two variables (instead of everything beingadded to select_html as now).You shouldn't need two handleSelected() functions -- both select listscan use the same function because each select box passes itself("this") into the function."which is what I thought I did (making sel_html and select_html) butmaybe the two variables being discussed here are different ones?cross-posted on the google maps forum here and here but not answered.

Change 2nd Select Values Based On 1st Select?

May 4, 2010

I am working on a class registration system that requires students to register for a main class (101, 102 or 103). The student is supposed to select one main course as well as provide a second choice in case the first is not available. I have two dropdown select fields to capture data

1) Choice -1: 101 / 102 / 103 ( Student needs to select one - Reading the classID from classes table)
2) Choice -2: 101 / 102 / 103 ( If student selects 101 in Choice-1 then the only classes available under Choice-2 should be 102 or 103).

How can I accomplish the above? Further to this there are two fields on the form where I would like to auto populate based on what they have selected in Choice-1 and Choice-2.

For Example:
If a parent selects choice1: 101 the child Choice1 field should autopopulate with 100.
If a parent selects Choice2: 201 the child Choice2 field should autopopulate with 200
