Could somebody confirm if and how I can change the TYPE of a textbox from PASSWORD to TEXT depending on whether a user checks a checkbox.
In essence I have a login and password form and the end user wants the option to check a checkbox to make the Password textbox show normal text rather than the asterisks. If the checkbox is unchecked then it shows the asterisks when entering the password.
I am trying to dynamically clear the value of a form input field and then submit the form.When I used $('#my_field').val('') to clear the field, it was cleared on the screen but when the form was submitted the original value of the input field was posted.My browser is FireFox and I can see using FireBug that when the field is cleared, firebug is still showing the html code with the old value. E.G. <input type="text" value="old_value" />The same situation occurred if I used $('#my_field').attr('value', '') to clear the field.The same situation occurred if I actually changed the value of the field rather than just clearing it.To work around this problem I ended up using the $('#my_field').removeAttr('value') to clear the field before it was submitted.
If I have this HTML code, the myForm.elements.length is 5, instead of the expected 6. You can click on the image in this case, and it acts like a submit button... proof that the broser recognizes it as part of the form.
So, if I call myForm.elements, I get the button, not the image.
It seems goofy to me, and I cannot find any documentation that explains why this is.
Of course, I can get access to the object in many other ways... I am just curious if the is an IE bug.
Is it possible to change the input type of a form field. example
<input type="password" name="pw" value="test">
i want to have a "view" button next to that field that when you press and hold it it will chnage that input type to "text" so i can see the password. And when i release the button it will change it back.
I know this sounds like a bad idea and insecure... but its not a big deal.. i have all this stored in an "administrator" panel which an admin must login to get to it. Inside of that i have some admin programs, one of which displays information about the clients. I want to be able to see the clients password when ever i need to reference what it is, but i figured rather then just printing it on the screen all the time this would be a better way.
I have an input text box that I want to change the type from text to password and I wrote code that works in Firefox but not in IE any suggestions? Here is the code(cut down a little for easier reading) code...
point.x and point.y values get submitted to the server specifying where on the image I have clicked.
Is there any (simple) way to get ahold of that point.x and point.y BEFORE they are sent to the server (and prevent that from happening)? Ie. I just want the points where someone clicks on an image and not interested in a submission to the server.
Any way to define the length of a textfield? I have just set all the field with a width so that they look like clear and easy to read, However, When I see the page of mac os, They are totally not the result in IE of FF, Does there any way to define it absolutely?
I have already change the size attribute and set the width of the input.
I want to create a input box the says Password inside the box and gets erased when someone clicks inside of it. Then when they type their password it is in asterisk characters.Can anyone tell me what extra scripting I need?
I have a page with a customizable background. The user can choose a picture to set as the background by finding the picture file they want after clicking the upload input. The path of the file they select is saved into a cookie, and the page then switches backgrounds.
This all works perfectly, but the value that the upload input returns is only the file name, not the full path. For example, let's say I wanted to choose a picture named "bg.jpg" in the "Windows" folder of the C drive. The full path would be "C:/Windows/bg.jpg". However, the value that the input returns is just "bg.jpg".
I'm trying to access a value from an input form. I know this works without the onkeyup event but with it it says the that document.formname.elementid.value is undefined! Its extremely frustrating. As the user types into the input, I am using AJAX to generate some more options which works but I need to be able to access the input type=text value.
