JQuery :: Selector Incompatibility With Meta Characters?

Dec 22, 2011

I'm working for a company as a consultant and i'm trying to upgrade their jQuery version to the latest available (1.7.1). Previously they were able to do a selection such as $('a[name*=word<>word]') without any problems, however, after upgrading to 1.7.1 the selection is invalid even when escaping both meta characters with a double backslash ( $('a[name*=word\<\>word']) ) - I know the best solution would be to just change the selection based on something else like a class name, but this is something they are using across the whole site and we have a deadline for this.

I have a web form that needs to be printed for signatures. Problem is the
form is just a bit too big and always prints on two pages. Is there a meta
tag that will tell the printer to print the document on one page...or is
there a meta tag I can use to print at 80%?

How To Read Meta Tag Value With Js?

Nov 23, 2005

Does anyone know how - or better yet - have a sample of how to extract information from a meta tag in an HTML document's head tag using Javascipt?

I have looked at the DOM with Firefox - but it seems so long. I'd be really interested in a better way. If someone has the javascript for walking through the DOM, that would be cool too. I havn't built it yet.

Meta Refresh

Jul 23, 2007

I have a requirement to hit a page, run some JavaScript, and move on to another page. It's uncertain whether the user actually has JavaScript enabled, so I can't use JS to effectuate the move to the second page. Here's what I've got:

<meta http-equiv='refresh' content=&#390;url=page2.html'>
<script src="http://www.example.com/example.js"></script>
_xxx = "xxxxxxxxx";

My question: will the JS run before the refresh to page2.html? I tested this with an alert() in the script and it seemed to work fine. I just thought some of the W3C gurus out here might be able to give more authoritative answers.

Meta Tag For Scripting Language

Jul 20, 2005

I have some doubts about this meta tag:
<META http-equiv="Content-Script-Type" content="text/javascript">

Do I really need to declare this meta tag in all my pages?

If I declare it, will I still need to create my scripts this way?
<script type='text/javascript'>

Is there any advantage/disadvantage when using it?

Stopping Http Or Meta Refresh

Jan 14, 2009

I have a web page which takes a while to generate due to serverside processing. I currently show a "please wait" page, which includes a meta refresh tag, as well as a refresh http header, to refresh the current page every X seconds to check if thier data is finished processing. They're also provided a manual link to click to refresh the page, just in case thier browser doesn't like automatic redirection.

I think this works great for just about all users. But I have this idea that it would be nice if I used ajax to check back with the server instead of making the browser reload the webpage. I want this to be an enhancement of functionality, so that users without javascript or ajax capability still fallback on the solid current functionality. This means I need a way to stop the browser from obeying the http refresh header and meta tag. Is such a thing possible with javascript?

Passing Meta-knowledge About A Form Element

Jan 20, 2006

I need to create a table where each element has certain specific properties.

For example, elements in the first column should always have a range of
0-100, and increment by 1. Elements in column 2 might have a range of
0-360, and increment by 0.1. Altogether there might be 8 elements in
each row.

Since this is basically the same javascript function over and over, I
wonder if there is a way to create some <input> element that might
contain this knowledge in a way that javascript can access it.

For example, could I have

<input type="text" class="percent" onkeypress="javascript:blah(event)">

where the javascript function could retrieve the class value?

Since this is going to be fairly complex, I'd like to make it fairly
self-documenting and simple. It's much easier for a maintainer to
understand class="precent" than "javascript:blah(0,100,1,event)",
especially since I am also going to have to pass navigation information
(is this a border element in the table? what are my neighbors? kind
of information... - so that the actual information might end up being
javascript:blah(0,100,1,5,21,16,18,0,1,0,0,event) to denote the data
type, the 4 neighbors, and the 4 border conditions....
