I have a form with two <button> elements. One button loads the page with the associated form data whilst the other triggers a download. IE6/7 does not handle <button> tags correctly. IE6 will submit all buttons regardless of which you click and uses the button content as the value, instead of the value as the value. IE7 submits just the clicked button, but still submits the content as the value, not the value.
To get around IE's issues with <button> I use JS to manipulate the DOM so hidden input fields are generated with the correct value and the button names are removed so they're not submitted at all.
This works, except in my specific situation for my download button. Because it triggers a download, the page you are on remains, and remains with the manipulated DOM, which means the form doesn't work properly anymore.
I would like to know if there's a trigger of some sort that would allow me to revert the DOM changes when the form is submitted but the page remains. I hope that makes sense. Oh, and there's no need to suggest using <input type="button" /> instead of <button>. That's not a solution.
I have a very weired problem (which is not easy to describe.. but I'll do my best):I have a html page with several forms , only one of the got the action="ComputeAndReturn" and the other forms got only name="" tag.the problem is that after i submit the form with the action , and than after a computatioon it returns to the original page, now... if i will submit any of the forms without the action=.they will act as if they were defined action="ComputeAndReturn" (altho they are not!)if they were defined from the first time with action="anything", and than i would submit the form with action="ComputeAndReturn" this problem would not appear (the other forms will keep their action="anything" and would not "imitate" the action= "Compute AndReturn" to them selfs...
any ideas how can i keep my forms without action="" , cause all i need them to do is be submitted to pass the submitted value to other form inside that page.[code]
Am creating a framed chat application and when the user types a message in the form field and clicks the submit button, the message gets sent to the display frame, but the message stays in the form field. How can i get the form to submit the message AND reset the form field to blank too?
I've got a form that is enabling/disabling other fields based upon radio selections. I've got it all working, except with the form reset button. My "refresh" routine just iterates through the radio box to check which item is selected based upon e[i].checked state and enables/disables accordingly. Unfortunately it seems the reset event fires before the actual state of e[i] has been reset and my form enabing/disabling gets out of sync.
var btn = document.getElementById('formData'); formValidation.addEvent(btn, 'reset', formValidation.refreshUI, false);
"<input type="hidden" id='IsChanged' value=Ɔ'>" to
how can I make it so whenever I select a different year or different month it doesn't reset the Day option back to option 1 (the option that's called Day), unless of course you select a day then change the month that doesn't contain that day (like if u choose january 31 and then select february, it obviously must reset).
For example, say you choose january and then the day 20. Now if you select february, I do not want it to reset the day back to "Day"
Instead, I want to make it so it stays on the day 20 since there is a 20th of February. But still, I want it to eliminate the options 29, 30 and 31.

So far I have this inside every input button and i'm beginning to struggle with 'the next step': onfocus="if(this.value=='Email')this.value=''"
Is there a simpler way to achieve this with multiple buttons rather than copying this into every button?
I'm developing a web app in which I have a file upload option. The thing is, my file input is hidden, and instead, a textbox and a button are used, in order to style the input, copy the file input's value and allowing the user write a link address into the textbox (the php upload page recognizes the text in the textbox and takes action if the text is a hyperlink or a file upload).
The problem is, when I submit the form, the php is catching the file input's value as empty. So I removed the hidden property of the file input, in order to check what was wrong, and I noticed the input's value is being reset on form submit. When not hidden it takes me two button clicks to submit the form, being the first one the responsible for cleaning the file input. Though, if I assign it's value directly from the input object, it works perfectly.
I have a page where I use <DIV> to control the visibility a text input area. The text input is made visible only if the Other radio button is selected. That all works fine.
The problem I'm having is when I press the forms Reset )<input type=reset>) button, the visibility of the text area is not restored to the state it was at when the page first loaded so I end up with the text area being displayed even though the Other radio button in no longer selected (reset did clear it).
I thought I could solve this by using a <FORM onReset="forcehide()"> event handler but I can't figure out how to get the object id of the div. The div is defined as follows: Code:
anyway, the div box works. the login form works. i just haven't been able to figure out how to get it to appear in the div instead of into a new page.
HTML Code: <form action="" method="post" name="smForm" id="smForm"> <table>
Its for an Image Upload script which performs a binary read on the uploaded image, meaning I have to POST the form, but must pass any additional parameters to the Image Upload script via the querystring.
My submitform() function needs to set the action of form5 to :
