# Limit To Number Of Loop Iterations?

Mar 24, 2011

I wrote a short javascript code to try to solve a math puzzle. It involves iterating 50,000 times through a for loop. Nested in each of those iterations is another for loop with 50,000 iterations of its own. I think that's 2.5 billion altogether. Each times it compares two numbers that are being incremented.

I'm doing this in JS because I can't any of the Java I learned a few years ago...

I tested the code with much smaller numbers and it worked. With the big numbers my browsers are not responding, not surprisingly (I'm using the latest firefox on the latest mac os).

Will the code finish running tonight? Next week? In 10 years?

Feb 25, 2010

I have a form with checkboxes. I have the results being stored as an array, that gets sent to a mysql database.

how can i limit the number of checkboxes selected? I am looking for a max of 15 selections.

i've been able to set the max when the checkboxes are not stored as an array, but for simplicity storing as an array is the way i need to go.

## Limit On Number Or Size Of Javascript Variables

Jul 20, 2005

There will be a number of list boxes and other controls, with pop-up windows
to edit certain properties. It's the kind of thing I would normally have
done in VB but I want it to be browser-based. I've only used javascript for
trivial things before so this would be my first serious javascript
development. I would like it to run on all reasonably recent browsers.

The form starts with all the initial values being received from the server
(presumably just by pre-initialised data structures). The user tinkers with
it and when he is happy he presses 'submit' and the whole lot is submitted
to the server (presumably as a form post). This would be a few kb of data,
possibly 100 individual values but obviously in various data structures. I
guess there would be a few hundred lines of javascript code to manipulate
it.

My question is, is there likely to be a problem with manipulating and
sending this amount of data in Javascript. Sorry if this is a dumb question,
but like I said, I only used javascript for tiny programs before, so I'm a
bit unsure about its capabilities.

## Limit Number Of Selections In Multiple Select List Box

I'd like to limit the number of selections a user can make in a
multiple select listbox. I have a note on the interface to say that
only x no. of items should be selected and I check the number server

client side. Ideally I'd like the javascript to work in IE5+ and
Netscape6+.

## Resolved Adding / Removing And Incorporate A Way For A Limit On The Number Of Fields

Mar 8, 2011

I'm trying to get my script below working. I've managed to get it to add fields dynamically but the remove function isn't right... and I can't think of a way round it. how can i incorporate a way for a limit on the number of fields that can be added?

<script type="text/javascript">
{
var x = document.getElementById("inputs");
x.innerHTML += "<input type="text" />";
}
function removeInput()

## Recursive Function With For Loop, For Loop Is Breaking When Calling Itself

Jan 22, 2011

I have been looking at this code for two evenings now, and rewrote it 4 times already. It started out as jQuery code and now it's just concatenating strings together.

What I'm trying to do: Build a menu/outline using unordered lists from a multidimensional array.

What is happening: Inside the buildMenuHTML function, if I call buildMenuHTML, the for loop only happens once (i.e. only for 'i' having a value of '0'.) If I comment out the call to itself, it goes through the for loop all 3 times, but obviously the submenus are not created.

Here is the test object:

test = [
{
"name" : "Menu 1",

[Code].....

'Menu 2' and 'Menu 3' don't show up! I'm sure it's something small that I'm overlooking.

## Send A Loop Variable (i) To A Function Inside The Loop

Aug 4, 2011

I'm looking to send a loop variable (i) to a function inside the loop, but I can't seem to get it to use the value I want, it keeps making it a reference of i and therefore the function is always called using the last value of i rather than the one it was set with.

So if i have 5 Tabs then Tab 1, when clicked, should call DefaultTabClick(0) and so on rather than always using 4 for any of the tabs.

## Number / Category Association - Automatically Default Correctly When Put In Just The Number

Jun 16, 2011

When updating our agency's webpage daily, [URL] I am looking for a shortcut to save time.. When I update air quality numbers. I have to put the conditions. Ex.. 50 = good 100= moderate etc etc. As you see here(bold and underlined)

[Code]...

Well instead of having to type good or moderate every-time to correlate with the numbers, I want to find a way the category can automatically default correctly when I put in just the number. Ex, if I put in the number 100, it automatically knows to issue/ put Moderate with out me having to type it. I semi wrote a code .. Yet can't seem to know how to execute. Seeing if Maybe I can get some assistance.
