JQuery :: Updating Textarea With Text From Div?

Nov 19, 2010

I'm having a problem. What I'm basically trying to accomplish is a quote function on a forum. When I click the quote button, I want the text for that specific forum post to end up in the textarea field.

<textarea cols='1' rows='1' title='Reply to this post' id='entryField' name='entryField' style="width: 100%;" class='expand20-200'>

Updating Textarea From A Popup?

Dec 22, 2010

Basically, what I want to do is update a textarea in the parent window with data from the child (pop-up) window.There's an add image button on the main parent window that, when clicked, opens a pop-up window to upload an image and select its alignment (left, center and right). When the image is uploaded successfully, I want to send an img tag with the path to the newly uploaded file (and the alignment in the style attribute) to a textarea in the parent window.The original plan was to upload the file in the parent window itself, but any Ajax file uploading tutorial that I read didn't work in my code, though I tested it outside of my code and it worked fine (didn't refresh the page). It doesn't need to be on the parent page, I just thought it would be easier than doing it through a pop-up window, and I don't want to bother figuring out why it's not working with my code so I'm sticking with a pop-up

Updating Text Not In A Form Field?

Jan 25, 2011

I am very green in Javascript but I am working on it, I was wondering if this is even possible:

I have a bit of information as just text on a page, what I would like to do is to have the text change according to which form button they select. The trick is that the text information is not in a form, its just in a table.

example:

Here would be blah blah blah

()<-bad impression of a button

once I select that button, the information above it would change to something different.

Updating User Submitted Text?

Sep 16, 2011

What am I doing wrong here? I am trying to make it where the user can name the link whatever he/she wants.... I think it might be this part... links[i] = name.linkPosition.value; Where linkPosition is a variable.

<div id="navBar">
<ul>
<li><a href="#" id="link0"><script>document.write(links[0]);</script></a></li>[code]...

Now the links are updating but I get NaN for each link.

Updating A Text Field And Drop Down At Same Time?

Jul 17, 2009

I have a DB query that returns CustomerID, CustomerName, CustomerContact, CustomerSalesID. This Query populates a dropdown.

I need to have the Customer Contact applied to a text field and the customer Sales ID used to select the SalesRep from a different drop down when you select a customer.

Not too hard I'd think. I don't think I need to go as fancy as AJAX since I've already called the query when the page loads, that data is already there.

Updating A Text Field Back In To The Database?

Feb 28, 2011

What I have right now:Endless loop of Rows/records.Each one has a checkbox and a submit button.� I tried to make the checkbox pick up updating `long_desc`� The submit button currently just marks the job completed in the DB. (0=Incompleted 1=Completed)Submit button works with updating the row, right now... but instead of the submit button doing that, I want to have 2 checkboxes. One that knows to update the text field, and one that knows to update the status of the job, submit button to initialize it.I have some Javascript in already to separate the forms I have, and assign ID's to each Submit button on the page, but I really am stuck right now.

Updating Div With Text From Ckeditor / Getting Styles To Work

Oct 27, 2011

I have a textarea which uses ckeditor to make it a wysiwyg. I also have a bit of JS which watches the ckeditor and when a user types into it, whatever they type appears in a div elsewhere on the page.My ckeditor allows the text to be bold, italic, underlined and resized. When I apply styles to the text in the ckeditor textarea, I want them to reflected in the div which updates. At the moment only underline and resizing the text works. Choosing bold or italic does nothing the text updates ok, but no bold or italic. I've been told: "Ckeditor is using strong for bold, em for italics. My guess is that the browser or framework you are using doesn't apply bold and italics styles to those tags. You'll have to do that yourself."

I've tested on several browsers, I checked in FF Opera Safari Chrome IE8 & IE9 and its the same in all them. Underline works, resize works but neither bold or italic do. (Interestingly in IE7 bold and italic do work as well as the size and underline! What's going on with that?!?) So I assume it is the framework? Can anyone tell me if this is right and if so, how do I go about doing that myself?

Updating Related Text Field Using OnChange Event

Jul 23, 2005

I have a requirement in which, I need to capture a loan amount and the amount of down payment for that loan. According to the requirement, the user is going to enter enter the loan amount and then will enter the down payment in either percentage of the loan amount or an actual amount. I have designed a form to capture this information with three text fields, one each for loan amount, down payment in % and down payment in $.

So the user has the option of entering downpayment in $ or in %. If the user enter the down payment in $ then my code has to calculate the equivalent % value and populate the corresponding text field and vice versa. My question here is, what would be the best way to handle this
situation.

Shall i just use the OnChange event of the text field to handle this scenario? If I do that wont I be running into a loop?

JQuery :: Retain Text In Textarea?

Aug 7, 2009

I have a webpage I've been working on and it utilizes jQuery Autoscroll. You can view it here [URL]

I'm having a problem and I can't figure it out.

I have a text area. I can put text into it and it will scroll. However, when I go to File>new window to create a new identical but separate webpage the text which I just typed into the autotext area doesn't get copied over. Everything else does. Why is that? How can I fix it so that it will copy over.

Is this a JQuery issue or is it more of an html issues.

JQuery :: Textarea Text Won't Change?

Oct 3, 2011

I've been trying to change the text in a textarea element to no avail. I'm using the following to change the text:

$(inlineEditor.CurrentEditCollection).find('#resource_description').each(function(){
this.val(vals.value);
});
vals.value contains the text. The Textarea element is in a TD in a TR that is contained in inlineEditor.CurrentEditCollection

The selector seems to find the element just fine but the text will not change.

Adding Text To Textarea - Create An Additional Button That Will Insert Some Text - Certain Html Tags

Mar 10, 2010

I am creating a small CMS module for a client. I created a little form and when they click Submit, it goes straight out into an include (.inc) file, which is connected to the web page to be displayed.

The trouble I am having is that I'd like to create an additional button that will insert some text (certain html tags to make their life easier, etc) - I got it to work, actually. The script executes and the text is inserted - but once the script runs and the page refreshes (or whatever it does), the text then disappears. The only way I can seem to get it to stay put is when I use "onmouseup" instead of "onclick" - which means that every time the user accidentally mouses over the thing, it inserts the text.

Dynamic Forms And Updating On Reload, Inserting Functions, Jumping Text?

Jan 12, 2010

I'm trying to create a dynamic form, and for the most part it's working out fine.I'm using javascript with onclick and onchange on checkboxes and select boxes to change the form as the user makes selections.However, there's a few issues I'm running into that are giving me problems.

One is that when the user reloads the page, all of the javascript inserted or removed form elements are reset, but the choices on the checkboxes and select boxes aren't, which looks very strange to the user. How can I avoid this? I'm currently including scripts tags in the body of the html, but this is pretty messy and hard to manage. Is there a better way? Second is that I'd like to be able to insert javascript function declarations into text that is dynamically inserted by javascript.However, when I do so, the browser does not recognize the functions. The reason I'd like to do so is that I am using Ruby on Rails, and would like to be able to keep the scripts in the partials to which they relate. I have to use inline javascript, because the scripts are having element ids inserted based on Ruby variables. Is this a lost cause, or is there a technique that enables dynamically inserted javascript to be loaded?

Lastly, my dynamic form's javascript shows or hides portions based on what it encounters while loading. The main reason is that I want to show the whole form for users without javascript, and then hide advanced or obscure details unless they are activated with a checkbox on the form for users with javascript. However, this is creating a jarring pop-in effect, where on first load, the pre-javascript formatted page is shown for a split second, and then the javascript kicks in and fixes everything and the page visibly jumps and changes. Is there a way to avoid this to create a more polished effect?

JQuery :: Can't Read Text From A Textarea - From A Phone Browser

Oct 21, 2010

Ive created this simple test page with a textarea, a div, and a button. And then this code:

function copytext() {
var temp= $('#TextArea').text();
$('#emptydiv').append(temp);
}

Now in a normal browser (IE, firefox), when i type something in the field, and push the button, the text appends and shows - exactly as it should.

But on a phone (Ive tried with Iphone and htc), nothing happens. It wont copy the text. Im using jquery for alot of other stuff on the mobile page which works just fine.

JQuery :: Manipulate Text Inside Of A <textarea> And Use Tooltips?

Apr 5, 2010

I have a grammar check on the server that can grammar check text... big surprise there. It'll return a list of match problems, along with the positions in the text that are flawed. It'll also send the grammar rule that was broken in plain english, to help someone fix it.

So we have a list of these basically:

What I'd like to do is apply different styles to the text inside of the <textarea> for all these positions (5 to 10 in the case above, but I'm going to have a list of these).

I also want to make it so if a user hovers on top one of these problems, I can show a tooltip that contains the "message" property.
