Running MS-DOS/CMD Prompt With On IE?

Dec 12, 2011

I can run MS-Dos using JavaScript with this codes:

<script type="text/javascript">
var cmd = new ActiveXObject("WScript.Shell");"cmd /c echo It works! CMD opened but is visible.");

I wonder if I can run MS-Dos hidden like in Visual Basic 6.0?

Dim command As String command = "echo It also works!" Shell "cmd /c " & command, vbHide Is it also possible to fetch the result and insert to a DIV? I'm sorry, I'm just a new web developer and really want to learn.

How To Center A Prompt Box??

Jul 23, 2005

I am trying to make a prompt that will ask the user for some input...
If I just use var input = prompt("dafa") everything works fine but the
box is put in the top left corner of the window. I need it to be
centered so... I was doing some research on the net (never really used
much JavaScript before) and was reading the only way to do this is by
making your own custom prompt. In my attempts of doing so I came up
with this code below. The problem I am having now is that when
onMaxLoad_Click() occurs the prompt appears for a split second and then
it goes back to being hidden. Code:

Prompt To Submit

Jul 20, 2005

I have a form that the user can edit data in. However, there are a couple
of links on the page. The user can edit the data and click on a link, not
submitting the form.

Is there some code out there that will check to see if they changed the
form, and prompt them to submit it if they try to exit the page any other

Perfect example:

Returning Value From Prompt() ?

Jul 20, 2005

here's what we have in an html file.

<form .....

<input type=button name="comment" onclick=" prompt('enter comment','
' )" >

Is there anyway to get the value returned from the prompt in the statement
above, into the value of the statement below ?

<input type=hidden name="comment_text" value = ???? >

We would like the user to click the "comment" button, have another window
popup where they enter their comment, and then take the comment text and
append it to the value parameter of the hidden statement.

Run JS In IE And NOT Get The Security Prompt?

Oct 14, 2009

I'm working on an html form that will be launched from within another application, but every time it launches the form none of the JS coding works because of the stupid IE security. If I launch the form from outside the application I just have to select "allow blocked content" from that stupid information bar that says "to help protect your security IE has restricted the webpage from running scripts...."

I added the application site to our trusted sites and basically turned off security for that zone but it still doesn't work. Obviously there is a way to run JS without allowing the content, but I don't do enough coding to know how that is done.I need the JS to run automatically without that information bar appearing at all.

Prompt Replacement - Capturing Value

Jun 9, 2010

I have a very simple jquery RTE I've built. When adding a link I currently do this ( $.iframeread is just a function to pick the right way to "find" the iframe content for the browser being used)


I can obviously create this and show() it when I need to - what I don't know how to do is pass $('select[name="type"]').val() + $('input[name="link"]').val() back to the orginal function - ie how do I capture $link

Create An Array Through A Prompt?

function counter()
var numArr = new Array(Number(prompt("Please enter and array of numbers, in any order, separated by a comma..." + '[code]......

I'm trying to make a prompt where if a person types in their username, according to the name it will play a hello message with their name and have their own background.

<script language="JavaScript">
name=prompt("Please Enter Your Name"");
if (name == "Ex1")
document.write("<html><head><title>Welcome " + name + "</title></head><body><EMBED src="sound1.ram"><h1>Hello, " + name + "</body></html>");
if (name == "Ex2")
document.write("<html><head><title>Welcome " + name + "</title></head><body><EMBED src="sound2.ram"><h1>Hello, " + name + "</body></html>");

Prompt As A Variable To An Array?

Jun 19, 2011

I want a prompt box appear and tell the user to input a word,and have that word saved as a variable named word (for example), later I wish to run the variable through a Regex, and run an if statement in which i use the search method for the regex, if the variable is not -1 then i want to alert a specific part of an array. I probably got you going in circles, its hard to explain but basically i want to alert an array named whatever the user inputs, as long as i have the users input already made: for example: the user inputs a word and saves it as a variable named word, then i want to call an array that is the same as the users input.


if he inputs hello,
i want to call for example the array hello[2]

if he inputs internet
i want to call the array internet[1]

Prompt The User To Save Changes?

I need a generalised code that goes in the header or footer page of the application, so that I dont have to make any changes to the existing 100 pages.

Password Prompt And Cancel Button

Feb 11, 2009

I have a password script that prompts users for a password, the script works perfect, however, when you click on cancel, it begins the loop again and you can't exit the prompt unless you know the password. It's an internal site so I don't care if it's not that secure. What first occurs is the user clicks on the submit button in a text form, when that occurrs, the password prompt apears, I need the user to be able to click on the cancel button, which will also cancel the submit request and then gets redirected to the same site, like a refresh. I'm not that great with if and else statements, so it may be the problem, or I may need a entire new script.

Script For Prompt Box Validation Using A Button

May 11, 2010

I wanted to make it so that a button on the webpage validates a word that a user types into a prompt box that pops up when they open the webpage.

For example, user goes on website, prompt box opens, user types in word then presses OK. On the webpage he clicks the button, which calls a while function to check if the word has a P at the start, a J somewhere in it, and is longer than 8 characters.

<script type="text/javascript">
var strWord;
function validateWord()

Using Prompt To Validate A Text String?

Jan 30, 2011

I want to prompt a user to enter their name, if the user entry includes numbers I would like to prompt them to re-enter their name using only text.

} else {
document.write("Welcome back " +userName); }

It isn't working, I would like to monitor the user entry for only text values
