Get OffsetLeft Of Char In A String In A ChildNodes?

May 15, 2010

Is there a way to calculate the .offsetLeft or .left of a character in a string relative the element that contains the string? I'm just trying to wrap each character in an element and position the characters independently, so I have to set the .position to absolute, and set the .left and .top on each element as I create it so I can move the elements later on.

Regexp - Negative Match For Fixed String (vs. A Char List)?

Mar 28, 2007

Is there a way in a regexp to *not* match a fixed string value?

Using [^blah] gives matches to anything not containing *any* of letters
b,l,a and h. Whereas I want to match anything that does not containing
the exact string 'blah', i.e. *all* the letters.

OffsetLeft & OffsetTop With Different Browsers?

Jun 10, 2010

I am currently getting the position of a DOM element by using offsetLeft & offsetTop. This works fine, but I notice that when I use these properties in Internet Explorer the values returned are slightly different from when I use them with Firefox, Safari, or Camino.

I am basically trying to create a DIV over a certain part of a fixed table, so I use offsetLeft & offsetTop to get the coordinates of that table and then position my DIV based on those coordinates. The problem is that with Internet Explorer it seems to be a few pixels off compared to when I do it with Firefox, Safari, or Camino.

Safari OffsetParent/offsetLeft Problem!

Jul 23, 2005

I've got a script that determines the true position of an element in
the page by cycling up the .offsetParent elements all the way up to the
<body> element and tallying up the .offsetLeft values returned by each
element. It works fine on the major browsers (IE, Moz, NS) on PC but
Safari on the Mac returns "0" for the offsetLeft right off the body tag
when it should be a greater value than that....

Getting All ChildNodes

Jul 11, 2006

this should be simple but I cannot figure it out. This is the HTML:

HTML Code:
<div id="box">
<p>two <strong>three</strong></p>
The JavaScript function has to take everything inside <div id="box"> and put it into another div. It should become:

HTML Code:
<div id="box">
<div class="content">
<p>two <strong>three</strong></p>
So how can I get all childNodes recursively to enclose them with another element?

Jan 4, 2006

I have a problem with getting the amount of childs in a XML structure,
the strucure is somewhat like the following:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>

If I use the following to get te amount of childs for xmlnames I get an
amount of 11:
xmlObj.responseXML.getElementsByTagName('xmlnames' )[0].childNodes.length

Is this wrong or maybe there is a better / other way of counting the
child amount?

Enumerating DOM ChildNodes

Jan 7, 2007

I am starting to learn using javascript on DOM. One of the first things
I tested was listing all the child nodes from an element. Like ->

*html code:
<div id="pagetitle">
<span>My Text</span>

In my javascript I tried to list all the child nodes from <div>, Firefox
and Opera gave me 3 -- 1)text node with a null value, 2)span, 3)text
node with a null value.

It look to me that the browsers treated the line break as a text node
with no value!!

If I modified the html code to :
<div id="pagetitle"><span>My Text</span></div>

Then the browsers gave me the right answer: 1

They still gave me a wrong answer of 3 if I put a space around the
<spanelement like this:
<div id="pagetitle"<span>My Text</span</div>

What did I do wrong? I would still want the elements to be on their own

Circle All The ChildNodes

May 20, 2005

I wanna get all the text nodes of the children of an element. The goal is to get an array with all the textNodes in each cell of a table, without any other nodes that might ocure whithin that cell (<p>, <br> etc...)

I mean if:
I need:
var txt = new Array()
txt[0] = &#3912;'
txt[1] = ?'

Now I had to circle through all the childNodes to extract all the text nodes. I have build a function, but something is wrong in the code, and I don't sense what. I need soime fresh eyes, any ideeas? Where's the mistake?:

<script type="text/javascript">
function checkCell(){
var allC = document.getElementById('tab').getElementsByTagName('td');//cells' collection
var txt = new Array()
for(var i=0;i<allC.length;i++){
var chC = allC[i].childNodes;
for(var j=0;j<chC.length;j++){

How To Keep All Childnodes Of The Clicked Parent

Nov 11, 2010

I have a javascript for a tree view but i need to change it according to the requirement. Lets start with example with the treeview as follow:

1 Door phone
1.1 Ready Kits
1.1.1 Audioset
1.1.2 Videoset

But i want that when i click on 1(Door phone) ie Door phone...evry node should be opened instead of just one similary when i click on 2(CCTV), all its node should be opened.

Clarification Regarding ChildNodes Attribute

Aug 16, 2006

From what I've read, everything in the DOM is a node. Basically there are three types of nodes: text, element and attribute (there are more node types but these are the most common).

Let's say I have the following html:


Then this javascript:

var forms = document.getElementsByTagName("form")
var form = forms[0];
alert(form.childNodes.length); /* output is 3 */

I would think that the output should be 2 as I only see 2 childNodes for the form object: the <p> element is an element node and the <p> element has a text node, so that's a total of 2 nodes. Where is the 3rd one comming from.

To add to the confusion, if I change the html to:

<p title="jeff" id="22"></p>

The above javascript still outputs 3. I would think that the output is 4:
- 1st node is the <p> element
- 2nd node is the <p> element's attribute node "title"
- 3rd node is the <p> element's attribute node "id"
- 4th node is the <p> element's text node

Obviously I'm not correctly comprehending how childNodes are determined.

Counting Using .childNodes In IE And Mozilla

Sep 21, 2006

I want to count the number of childnodes, when i run this script in mozilla i get a different total for the number of childnodes from numkids then when the script runs in IE. Why is this? How Can I get the same number. I want to loop though an objects child elements setting them to invisible or visible

<script type="text/javascript"><!--
function rec(n) {

var kids = n.childNodes;
var numkids = kids.length;

for(var i = numkids-1; i>=0; i--)

// sets child to hidden
//kids[i].style.visibility = 'hidden'

var a = document.getElementById('commentholder0');

// this function loops though the parts and makes then invisiable so you cant see them overlap


My html is here:

<ul id= "commentholder0" >
<li id="comment1">this is a test</li>
<li id="comment2">this 2 is a test</li>

Problem Addressing Objects Using ChildNodes

Jul 23, 2005

i'm working on a portion of a CMS that allows content-admins to browse
a product list, and add individual products into the taxonomy by
clicking checkboxes next to categories they might belong in.

since the taxonomy is a rather long list, i'm hiding and showing divs
for the secondary and tertiary links, so when a user clicks on the
checkbox for the parent category, the children appear in a second (and
third) div, with checkboxes of their own.

however, i'd like for the secondary and third level checkboxes to
become unchecked when the parent is. i've tried addressing them in
numerous ways, but something consistently gets lost, in that i keep
getting "x doesn't have any properties" errors.

var parentnode = document.getElementById(divName);
var allMyChildren = parentnode.childNodes.getElementsByName("INPUT");

this returns the proper length, but then

for (var i=0;i < allMyChildren.length;i++) {
var chklist = allMyChildren[i];
if (chklist.type == "checkbox") {
// uncheck it

this consistently returns that chklist has no properties...
