I have a website where people can create posts similar to FB(I hate that example but it's widely known) -- how do I strip HTML tagging out of the post before I put it in my db? (I'm using AJAX atm).The obvious crossed my mind with replacing "<" and/or ">" but I want those chars to be available when posting -- is there a way to do this or a way to print the data to my page as text even if it has those tags?
I have an ASP page that displays, along with other data, a list of items that refer to a specific element in a database. Instead of adding an Add button, I would like to display a text box below the last item in the list to have the user input any new data. Once they enter the data and hit Enter, the data they enter should then be added to the list and another text box added beneath this item (just as forms and tables in Access do). However, I'm not sure how to implement this functionality.
I'm using jQuery validation on a form and I can't get it to only validate optional fields if the user enters something (should recognize the difference between this and the default value of the field, for text input fields). I know this is built in (I think) but I must be doing something wrong.
For example, phone number is optional but I want it to validate if the user enters something. Code for the phone in the JS file is:
When I just put "phone" as the class it validates the field even if it is not edited by the user at all. For the required fields I put "required" as the class to validate them but I just read in another post that this is not necessary with the plugin...? I guess I am not sure whether the field should be define as optional by a class or in the JS file, and if it's the latter, how to do that.
I need to write code to prompt the user to save the changes before the user session expires. And this should happen only when the user makes any changes, if he doesnt make any changes, I should not be prompting him. For this I need to check if any fields are modified in the page. I need a generalised code that goes in the header or footer page of the application, so that I dont have to make any changes to the existing 100 pages.
I can output the TSV into a DIV (and probably an IFRAME I'm guessing), and do for display purposes. However, the users need to copy/paste at this point, which is rather user-unfriendly. Is there a way to either prompt a file download/save (without making a call to the server and wasting time), or opening up a new tab with just the desired text, so the user can save it?
EDIT: I'd rather not replace the whole page that generates the report, as the user probably doesn't want to lose his or her work in formatting setings, and my want to generate multiple reports from one dataset/query, without having to rewrite the query.
I have a confirm message box which asks the user whether they wish to take a survey. At the moment the confirm box appears each time the page is loaded. Would there be a way that when the user selects OK to take the survey this is remembered, so when the users next visit the page the box doesn't appear?
On one of my sites, I have a reather involved page (searchable map). When the person leaves the page then all the AJAX generated information is lost. Is there a way that I can retain all this data in a cookie or so or how would you recommend I saved all the users information (perhaps using a database on the serverside).
I have a long survey form and once its submitted it gets recorded into a database. I would love to be able to save a PDF version of the HTML form with all their radio buttons and textfields filled out at the same time its submitted. It would need a unique name that matches their record in the database (maybe it pulls the data that was entered into one of the form fields for the name).
Whether it gets uploaded to an ftp or just emailed to a mailbox doesn't really matter. The purpose of this is to basically have a visual interpretation of the data by a single user.
I am trying to design a system that allows users to draw on a whiteboard with different colors, save their drawing into hidden input boxes in the form on the page, then they can click Save Logo to save it to process it through PHP. I have the whiteboard that allows them to draw, but I am lost as to how to get the thing to populate the hidden input boxes.
So, I have the following code:
<HEAD> </HEAD> <BODY>
What I am trying to do is use the function mousedown(e) to include an event to update a hidden input box with the value of the TD's background color that the hidden input field is attached to, so that it can be tracked when the user hits Save Logo at the bottom of the page. When they hit Save Logo, I want the form to post to itself, go through each of the input hidden fields and capture the color for each table cell, then generate an image based on the generated array, save it to a file on the server with the user's $_SESSION['userid'] as the filename + .jpg.
Edit: I attached the entire script/page to this post because so many functions rely on each other to operate, and I'm not exactly sure which function will need to be modified to get the desired result. Also, you can copy the code to a .php file to see what it looks like (as that may assist in demonstrating exactly what I'm trying to do, visually).
My goal: User clicks "Save As HTML" button which triggers jquery to copy the source of the page and present it to the user as a mypage.html download. My fall back approach will be to open a new tab with just the desired html and instruct the user to manually "File -> Save As". However, this is very undesirable and I would like to find a solution to fulfill the goal above.
how to save data like : position, style, etc in a cookie, using jquery, and then to load that data back if i need to.
I've been researching and i found some plugins but i cant put the script together,
i would like a simple working example or some good documentation because from what i read it doesn't seem to be very hard, but on every forum I've been that talks about cookie setup there is not so much info
I would like to use jQuery to prepopulate a form - ie make a call to a php program to get data from a database and pre-populatea form with appropriate data for the user. Can anyone point me in the right direction for some examples on the simplest way to do this?
i have a a script for typing speed test. after 10 sex. script shows some result like Raw CPM: 35 Corrected CPM: 20 WPM: 4Time left: 0 Your score: 20 CPM (that is 4 WPM) In reality, you typed 35 CPM, but you made 3 mistakes (out of 7 words), which were not counted in the corrected CPM score.
I got the following script to work the way I want it by adding new text inputs with new name values, but if there is data added and the add button is clicked again everything disappears. Is there any way to keep the data from going AWAL?
1. user click "start" button for the e-test,
2. user need to finish the e-test with in 20 minutes, after 20 minutes the form will auto submit and the data will save into file,
3. me will go to the file folder open it and print out the qestion and anwser.
4. The file will be detele after i print out and the next user can do the e-test again.
I got the time counter and the auto submit script. but i just have no ideal how to save the data into file.
