Navigating The IE Vs Netscape DOM

Nov 9, 2001

I guess because IE once again has its own variations this works or Netscape isn't following the dom I don't know which but I was hoping this type of navigation was going to be dom compliant with the newest versions of Netscape

If you have a table with the id "bob" (I like dumb names sometimes) you should be able to navigate down the table via bob.firstChild.childNodes[1].innerHTML. This does not work in netscape but does work in IE. I find this troubling because of how much easier things would have been if it worked in both. I really just wish the browsers would become equal.

The dom specification is here (outdated I believe)

Thats the specification and how it supposedly works. I am going to keep playing and figure out if maybe Netscape 'changed' it. for an example try this Code:

JQuery :: Navigating Up And Down The DOM?

Aug 25, 2010

if this is long and complicated. Maybe there is an easy way to do this, but I'm not figuring it out.

Sample html:
<div class="story">
<p> (several)
<div class="pullquote">
<p> (several)


I want to hide the p and h4 in the stories, leave the pullquote and append a button to the pullquote that says "Read more". I can do this, so far.

Clicking the button will show all the p and h4 in the story, and also hide the button. I can find the parent div.story, but I can't seem to go back down the DOM to select all the p and h4 below.

Change The Browser URL Without Navigating Away?

Nov 3, 2005

Yahoo! has launched a beta of it's new mapping application:

It's based in Flash, but it uses JavaScript. I'm curious about one
feature, though - when you pan about the map, the URL in the address
bar of your browser changes to match your current location. How have
they done this? I thought calling window.location.href = "etc"; would
reload the page, navigating away from the current URL. Yahoo! have
managed to do this without the page changing. This is a very useful
technique for DHTML/AJAX/Flash technology and I'd love to know how
they've done it.

How To Detect Navigating Away From A Site

Jun 19, 2006

I have a web application that has basic authentication turned on (IIS).
What I would like to accomplish is detect whether user is navigating
away from the site or simply going to the different page using
JavaScript. I am aware that it is easy to detect where you came from
(referrer), but I haven't been able to find a way to where you're going
to. I did my fair amount of research online, but I couldn't find a
solution for this.

However, my boss told me that he has seen a website that detects the
fact that you're navigating away from your site. Does anyone know
anything about this?

JQuery :: Navigating Among HTML Pages?

Mar 21, 2011

I am using O'Reilly's book on building apps with HTML, CSS, and Javascript,It uses jQuery.Chapters 4 & 5 show us how to use a database. It really works well! I'm making small changes to fit my own mobile application. I've run into one problem: The page has <li>'s to link to anchors on the same page, like this:

<li class="arrow"><a href="#dates">About</a></li>

However, I want to link to another html page. I find I'm unable to do so. The following attempts don't work; that is, clicking on them will make the row change color, but won't change the page:

<li class="arrow"><a href="about.html">About</a></li>
<li class="arrow"><a href="/about.html">About</a></li>
<li class="arrow"><a href="www/about.html">About</a></li>

JQuery :: Prevent Navigating Away With PreventDefault() Not Working?

Mar 24, 2011

I am checking if a form on a jQuery tab is changed, and if it has, the user should get a popup warning when they navigate away from the tab with the form or click any other link on the page for that matter. So I setup this code:

$('a').bind('click', function(event) {
if (formChanged == true) {


in the $(document).ready() function. I can see the code is executed, but the click on the link still comes through and the form is lost. I've tried .click() and .live('click') as well but that doesn't work either.

Show Navigating Away Message For Selected Links?

Jul 12, 2010

I am trying to display an alert message when the user is in the middle of editing and clicks accidentally on some other link.

I want to display this error message for certain link and not for others.

I thought of using 'window.onbeforeunload', parse the url to find the link that was clicked. However, when I try to use the string functions (split, substring, lastindexof, etc.) inside 'onbeforeunload', they do not work.

Navigating Text String That Contains HTML Of A Page As DOM Object?

Mar 21, 2006

First, with AJAX I will get a remote web page into a string. Thus, a
string will contain HTML tags and such. I will need to extract text
from one <span> for which I know the ID the inner text.

Is it possible to access in this way "string variable".getElementByID()

PS: Just thinking of a proper/efficient way to extract the information
from such a string. I am open to other ideas. I could load that page in
IFRAME and get my access to DOM that way, yet probably it is not an
eligant solution.

Navigating Data Entry Controls On A Webpage, With Enter Key?

Oct 5, 2010

I have designed a data entry form in HTML. In all I have upwards of 16 data entry elements (varying from edit boxes, '<input>', drop down controls, check-boxes, etc)

I know by setting the tabIndex of every data entry element user can navigate easily with the Tab key. But, even if it is non-standard, can the navigation be done with the 'Enter' key instead (it is the users, non functional requirement)

Having A Lightbox Pop Up When A User Clicks The Back Button In Their Browser Rather Than Just Navigating Back

Jul 1, 2011

I'm looking to have a lightbox pop up when a user clicks the Back button in their browser rather than just navigating back. The purpose is to ask a question with a Yes/No answer, and if they click No, I allow them to go back. The only thing I've found anything like this is the onUnload event, but that doesn't prevent them from going back. How should this be handled?

Netscape 4.x And CSI

Aug 25, 2004

I am creating a site that will use a Client-Side Include (CSI) to dynamically generate an ad banner to be placed on the right hand side of the page. It loads great in IE5 and above and Netscape 7 and even loads fine in Netscape 4.7. The problem is when the user resizes the window, the ad banner that was generated is then placed at the bottom of the page. I even look at the HTML of that particular page and the CSI is thrown into the bottom portion of the site. I am perplexed as to how it just throws it down AND knows where in the HTML code to insert itself.

If anyone has any ideas on how to stop this snippet of code placing itself anywhere in the site, I would appreciate any help. Again, it LOADs fine but when the user decides to re-size the window, it just moves it down to the bottom of the site.

Netscape With Javascript

Jul 20, 2005

I created a menu bar for my page using Sothink DHTML Menu 4.1 which created javascript file. I also add a small slide show on the page using javascript and the javascript is embedded in this page's HTML.

Everything works perfectly with IE. However, Netscape (4, 6, 7) can't see the menu bar created in DHTML when the slideshow javascript is present.

If I just have the menu bar or slideshow alone on the page, Netscape can see it, but it seems that Netscape always ignores the DHTML script when both javascripts are present. Not sure what is going.

I have tried to put the slideshow javascript in the .js file that has the DHTML code for menu bar, but it didn't work either.

Javascript And Netscape 4.7

Jul 20, 2005

I have a problem with NS 4.7 (I know, it is old, but I have no
choice...) :

So, I have a page with a link to open a new window:

var strHtml = '<html><head><title>title_of_window</title>' +
'<LINK rel=stylesheet href=theme.css>'+
'<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript" SRC="my_script.js"></SCRIPT>' +
'</HEAD><BODY onLoad="fonc_onLoad();" class=Body topmargin=0
'blablabla' +

var win ='', 'window_name', 'parameters');

My problem concerns the tag "onLoad " of the "BODY" tag: with IE, the
"fonc_onLoad()" starts normally (this function is in "my_script.js"),
but with NS 4.7 (ou 4.51), the <SCRIPT> tag is ignored (you can view the
window's source code), so the "fonc_onLoad()" function cannot not start.
