## Wrap Lines After X Number Of Characters In A Textarea But NOT In The Middle Of A Word

Jul 14, 2010

I have a textarea with a specific width. I have wrap="off" set because I don't want to force my users to wrap if they don't want to. The reason for this is because this textarea is where the user is typing an email message. However I have a background image set on the textarea with a verticle line going down the textarea which indicates to the user the "Recommend Width"What I want to do is provide them with a link to click on which says something like "Wrap Lines" and when they click on it, the text within the textarea would wrap to the "Recommended Width" line in the background image. The maximum length of a line should be 53 characters when they click on "Wrap Lines" link.So I did some searching around and the code I came up with is:

Code:
function showLines(max, text) {
max--;
text = "" + text;
var temp = "";
var chcount = 0;

## Finding A "find On Page" Script That Will Display The Results In The Middle Of The Page For IE

Aug 22, 2010

finding a "find on page" script that will display the results in the middle of the page for IE. I have tried several different ones to no avail. The ones that work in all the browsers display the result in IE at the very bottom of the page. I am not very familiar with programing in Java and I am unable to modify any for my needs. The one I found that did work in IE didn't work in any other browsers.

## Putting Factors Of X Into An Array

Mar 12, 2011

I need some help putting the factors of a number (y) into an array.For example if y = 20: [1, 2, 4, 5, 10, 20]Once I have this, I can use it to factor a quadratic:(ax = c)(bx = d)if c = 3 and d = 5 then I could check if 1c was a decimal, if 20d was a decimal and then vice versa.Basically, I can use these numbers to see if b or d is a whole number and if it isn't, try the next one.If none of them are, then I can do y(ax + c)(bx + d)

## Find The Largest Number?

Sep 23, 2010

I am working on my assignment: The assignment is: The process of finding the largest value (i.e., the maximum of a group of values) is used frequently computer applications. Write a Javascript program that input a series of 10 single digit numbers as characters, determines the largest of the number and output XHTML text that displays the largest number. Your program should use 3 variables as follows:

a.) COUNTER: A counter to count to 10 (i.e. to keep track of how many number have been input and to determine when all 10 number have been processed). b.) NUMBER: The current digit input to the program.

c.) LARGEST: The largest number found so far.

Below is my code so far:

## Find And Replace A Number

Feb 12, 2011

When I find a record such as this in a textarea:

[Code]....

There will be from 1 to 4 Pts, if one is missing there will not be a next one. My problem is I replace the first occurrence of any number I find and for certain factors (2 in this case) it could change an already converted number and leave other fields in the record alone. I could split the line on commas to change the first number I find but can't be certain if there are no other commas elsewhere on the line.

## How To Find / Calculate Average Number

Feb 1, 2010

I need to find the average number in javascript. It is the only bit of javascript that I have to do in the course but it carries a high mark of which I cannot afford to lose. Any way the question is : "Write code to calculate the average height and write it out in the browser window"

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE = "JavaScript">
//Experimental results of Table 1 stored in arrays.
var Height = [15,16,17,18,19];
var Number = [2,1,6,4,2];

//Part (ii).
//Write code to declare and initialise new array to represent the third row of the table.
var avg = new Array(5)
var avg = ["60","80","187","180","114"] ;
avg[0] = "60";
avg[1] = "80";
avg[2] = "187";
avg[3] = "180";
avg[4] = "114";
//Part (iv).
//Write code to calculate the average height and write it out in the browser window.
avg = 0;
for (var count = 1; count <= 5; count = count + 1)
Array.average = function(){
var avg = 0;
for(var a = 0; a < this.length; a++){
avg += this[a];
} return avg / this.length;
};

document.write('average height is ' +avg + '<br>');
</BODY></HTML>

## Code For Window.confirm() Function - Find The Number Of Days - Calculate And Display The Total Cost?

Dec 6, 2010

I am having some difficulty in constructing a window.confirm() function that works with my code.So if the form data is valid, I need to use a window.confirm() dialog box to show the user's total cost based on the rental rate of equipment chosen and the reservation period.

## JQuery :: Getting The Value Of An Input Using .closest()

Jan 18, 2011

Been trying for about an hour to traverse the DOM to get the value of an input when the quantity is changed, total it and put it back. I have not been very successful unfortunately. erstanding of .closest() is that it will traverse up and find the first of whatever you're looking for. Below is the <ul> structure.

<ul>
<li>Type: Beverage</li>
<li>Price: \$<input name="product_price" type="text" id="<?php echo \$row['productID']; ?>" value="<?php echo \$row['productPrice']; ?>" class="product_price" size="11" /></li>

[Code].....

Seems like it should be simple. I've worked on more complicated jquery stuff. Course my .parent(), .child() skills leave much to be desired..

## JQuery :: Is There Any Alternative For .closest?

Oct 5, 2010

I'm looking for an alternative for .closest(). My script refers to jQuery 1.3.2 which is not the latest, but does its job. By trying to implement my code into another script I noticed that this script uses jQuery 1.2.6. Well, 'changing that version was no option'.[code]This is my code. It should be used to clone special comments containing "In[" and in some cases "text".Unfortunately .closest() doesn't work out for me. i'm looking for an alternative.

## JQuery :: OnBlur Textbox - Closest Span Not Recognized

My HTML looks something like the following:
<label for="myTextBox">
Name:<span style="color:red;">*</span>

## Can JS Pick Up LANG Attrib's ..?

May 29, 2006

I'm new and naive at JS, but use a lot of modified JS snippets in web
design. I'm working on a six-language site for a client right now that has
a small nav bar at the bottom of each template-based page.

I've had success in previous projects, writing out language-specific nav-bar
code nested in a document.write statement; a unique .js file for each
language.

An idea that I came up with that would allow me to create a function that
would cover all languages was this: if javascript could somehow detect the
"lang" attribute of the <html> tag, it could automatically choose which
"langage" js file to reference for my nav bar.

Example, if my german nav bar was in a file, "/scripts/de.js" the function
would pick up "de" from the "lang" attrib in the <html> tag, assign it to a
variable, say "navlang", and render a document.write statement that would
"write" out my script source reference as such:

<script>
document.write('<script src="/scripts/' + navlang +'.js"></script>');
</script>

my problem is I'm not adept enough at JS to write a function that would grab
the LANG attrib of the page .

## Pick A Folder Instead Of File?

Mar 10, 2009

With html you can have a file input that browses for a file to upload.

As far as I can tell you have to pick a file and can't pick a folder.

Is there a way to pick a folder with JS. I don't want to upload, I just need the path.
