JQuery :: Lock Function / Unlock User Interface Interactions
Nov 17, 2011
In the following code
/* All you have to do is to call
* a uiLock() function
// To lock user interface interactions
// Optional: put html on top of the lock section,
// like animated loading gif
$.uiLock('Click Here <a href="#" onclick="$.uiUnlock();">unlock</a>');
// To unlock user interface interactions
Where and how would I put a Animated loading gif?
I am building an application where more than one device can change settings on a webserver.Imagine using 2 smartphones. If a button on smartphone#1 is being pressed by a user, then on the webserver the status changes from 0 -> 1. I need both smartphone#1 and smartphone#2 to change from 0->1 and vice-versa so that the user knows the current value of the status.How can I accomplish this? Meaning, if I want to make a toggle switch.I read on the website:The first option will be styled as the "on" state switch and the second will be styled as the "off" state so write your options in the correct order.[code]My first guess is to create a function in the <head> in script, with one for the on and one for the off state.Depending on the current value I either load one of the two codes in the <body> section.The script in the <head> decides.
There are tons of lightbox apps out there, but none that I could find that use YUI. I'm sure there are lots of developers out there already using YUI and don't want to have to use another library such as jQuery to get lightbox functionality. I have two demos available from the link below and you can download a zip file of the complete application including the YUI files needed.
Supports 3 modes (LightBox, Overlay and Remote), but many many more configurations...
Hence wordy code pay a price isn't it ? The total number of bytes that need to be download to the browser has an impact. In this aspect jQuery is more compact and in theory the final code that uses jQuery will be smaller correct ?
In my page there are a combo-box and a check-box that should have the following behaviour: When check-box is checked, the combo-box has to take a precise value and has to be not editable by the user. I cannot use DISABLED option because the back-end needs the value in the combo and READONLY option is useless with a combo-box.... So I don't know what to use to make the combo "disabled"
Is there any way to lock down the menu bars? I currently have a form that was created in Adobe Professional. I have hidden the menu bars on initial view of this form, in an effort to force the sales associates to use buttons that I created that will show them all fields that are required. This worked for a while, but now the sales associates have found out how to unhide the menu bars and are again submitting incomplete forms. I would like to have something in place, that if they do unhide the menu bars, there are certain commands that they cannot use (i.e. Attach to E-mail). Is there any way to put script on this form that will gray out certain commands on the menu bars?
im not new to jquery but have limited skills. I wonder if anyone has seen any plugins or sites that have a similar interface to the new windows 8 interface...or indeed that windows phone. Interested in building a tile based site.
I was wondering if the was any way to determine the state of the caps lock key, on or off. Of course I can capture the key events and see whether the caps lock is pressed, but that does not help.
I have seen some example that looks at the characters entered in an input field to determine if the caps lock is on, but I was wondering if something is possible that is a bit more immediate to report the caps lock state.
I was wondering: You know how you're able to left-click and hold the mouse-button down on a image and then drag it around? Everybody must know that; Is there a way to "lock" the picture, so that isn't possible? I'm not talking about removing the right-click features, like saving the picture, etc. I just want the users not to be able to drag it all over the place - like a background for example. In HTML, of course
I'm trying to figure out a way to make only one element on a page receive key and mouse events. I have a grid in a <div>-container with "overflow:auto" which makes the grid scrollable. If course I can set event handlers to the "document" to catch key strokes and mouse clicks and execute navigation functions which make the grid scroll (e.g. pressing down arrow) etc. This of course effects the whole page and not just the div.
The problem is: as far as I know only window and form elements can receive events such as focus(), blur(), keypress() etc. and I have to make sure only this one element is affected.
Is there thus a way to make these events affect only the <div> container?
The best way to do this would be with an event listener as this would make development much easier.
I am using one script which is functioning properly incase of IE but incase of Mozilla evenif the shift key is pressed and any character key is pressed then it is displaying Caps Lock is On. how can I make it Mozilla and IE compatible.
I've created a admin center, that has two seperate login permissions. Admin which can edit listings, etc... and Viewer which can only view listings, and edit 1 or 2 of the listings details and not all of them like the admin. I've seen web-sites where certain text input fields are sort of Grayed out, not allowing for user to type, click in or change anything in that field. Sort of like the html text input field has been or is disabled. How can I get certain html text input fields to appear disabled, and the text that's inside un-editable or unchange-able?
I made a drop-down list that is opened when a user clicks on a button. If the user selects an item, the drop-down is rebuilt so the list is closed. If the user clicks on the button again, the drop-down closes using .toggle() on the button click event, and these two scenarios work great.However, I also need the drop-down to close when the user clicks anywhere outside of the drop-down. This seems simple, but I've been having a really difficult time figuring this out. I tried .focusout(), but this makes the events I have tied to selecting an item not fire at all. I also found this little bit of code from a drop-down plugin that should work perfectly, but it fires when the user clicks on the button, so the drop-down never opens:
