I stumbled across jQuery while during a search for my project that involves parsing and extracting content from HTML pages. I have a collection of xpath strings that identifies the data I would like to extract. Wondering if I could use jQuery for this purpose.
I'm trying to write a widget for Mac OSX Tiger. Here's the problem: The user enters a search term which is sent to a perl script on a remote server. This script returns a fully formatted HTML page. I only want part of that page to be displayed. How do I go about doing this?
I am developing an application using AJAX and CSS. I have a webpage in which i have some hyperlinks. I want that when ever some one move the cursor on some link, than mini preview should be loaded before clicking. I have done that but problem is that i want just the ist paragraph of the target webpage not the whole page. I dont want images in my preview window.
This is a simple script I though of to get the filename of container for html.
Note: this only is tested on mozilla firefox 2 on windows vista
document.write("<a style='display:none' id='zFilenameFinder1' href=''>q</a>"); document.write("<a style='display:none' id='zFilenameFinder2' href='b'>q</a>"); var zDocURL = document.getElementById('zFilenameFinder1').href; var zCompareURL = document.getElementById('zFilenameFinder2').href; zCompareURL = zCompareURL.replace('b',''); var zFilename = zDocURL.replace(zCompareURL, ''); alert(zFilename)//filename handler
it works by creating two relative urls. one's href is blank, which when called by link.href returns the absolute value, giving the absolute link the page, then you compare it to a link that has a relative href of "b" which can be compared to the other link to give you the whole url
I'm trying to come up with what is probably a kludge. What I'd like to do is take the responseText from an AJAX request -- which will be a full HTML page -- and parse it first to find if there is a <form>...</form> in it. If not I'll display a success message and all is fine, but if it's there, then I want to extract just that form section and display it within a <div> in the page.
This is where my JS skills are failing me. Can anyone point me to the applicable functions, tutorial, or whatever that would show me how to find the <form> and extract it and then replace my div contents with it (just innerHTML?).
I have this normal HTML page, starts with <!DOCTYPE ...... and end with </html>, nothing special, what I need is to get every character from the beginning to the end.I've tried $("html").html(), but this cannot get the <!DOCTYPE line and also the <html> line, but only the codes inside the <html> tag, how can I get all ?
I am working on a page that will load in other pages using AJAX and the .html method. Something like this :
<span id = "edit">Edit</span> <div id = "cont"> </div> //the click edit script
Unfortunately this does not seem to work, entirely. It does trigger the click event but it messes up the post for some reason. I have played around with it for the last 45 minutes or so and it seems like the click event trigger is what is messing things up, if I comment it out it works fine. Could anyone tell me why they think this is? note this is an over simplified version of my actual code, but the structure is the same.
How to test if a html page has a parent page?Let me explain: I use the (great) Colorbox plugin and I like to apply jquery functions only if a page is in an Colorbox iframe.So, basically, I'd like to know how to determine with jQuery if a page has a parent page (= is in a Colorbox iframe).
I know how to employ .load() to bring a partial doc.html into a receptacle division upon menu selection, but am still unclear after reading the api whether I can also load a dedicated .css file for it ...I suppose prior to content load(?)... or if I can/should outfit the doc.html with <head><style> yada yada</style></head> and load it as one doc..
Or is one obliged to write out the entire styling for the doc.html in camelCase as a string enclosed in .css() ??
These are various stories fetchable via a menu. Each one has a different and detailed set of classes for styling..
Lastly, should I identify each story as an id or class?
What I'm not wrapping my head around is how to lay out the stylesheet. If a particular story ...(I'm using the same name as its document page (minus '.html')... is denoted as a class or id, then how do I assure that all the classes and id's which are in effect subordinate only to that id or class name also get loaded...?
I need to extract some data from the following block:<span <aref="localhost:80/items/2">item link</a> <span>item attribute</span></span> I can get the item link anditem attributedata by using $("span a") and$("span span"). I, however, can't figure out how to extract the "2" from the "localhost:80/items/2".
to append a parameter string like: '?key=val' to the currenturl and the value for the key changes based on the user input. Isthere any jquery utility that does the base url extraction fromwindow.location, so that I can append the '?key=val' to that?
I'm trying to extract a value from an attribute, namely listid in this case, inside an input tag.code...
or is there another genius way to accomplish the same other than using an input tag?
