Creating Variables On The Fly

Jul 20, 2005

how you would piece
together a variable name and then assign it a value. I want to create a
hidden field and assign it a value based on the value of another variable

Right now it looks like:

("document.all.SM_MARK_10" + dateNumber + ".value")

where dateNumber is an already defined integer. What I want is to say



based on that value of dateNumber. Any way to do this easily?

Creating Time Variables

Jul 17, 2007

I have a flash object count down clock, that uses the following:


I need to somehow put the server time and localtime into a javascript to use with the above. The variables should be in Unix time. Does that some sense? I'm starting to google out some javascript time examples, but haven't quite gotten it figured out yet. I think its probably alot simpler than I'm making it out to be.

Regarding Variables And Creating A Variable Name?

Jan 7, 2010

I'm trying to create a family tree online that has several other related family charts. I want each person's name and birth year to be stored in javascript variables, then I want to be able to just go through the tree, and put the persons name once, and have it put the appropriate name and birthyear in the little boxes that the css is creating.

var johnname = "John Smith";
var johnbirthyear = "Jan 1 1930";
var janename = "Jane Doe";


So I thought I had it all figured out. I thought that the above would take the id of John that I added, go to the line that sets the name, add john to the word name, and then document write the variable of johnname from the js file. I know you're laughing at me because of course it instead made the value of name to johnname, then wrote the word johnname in the box. I want to go through and be able to just type the persons name in the html for that box once, and have it update with their appropriate info.

Creating Variables From Page Content?

Jan 27, 2006

I have an e-commerce site which is hosted and I'm not allowed to place any server side script on, nor am I allowed to access any server side variables. I need to be able to create variables based on page content (i.e. order total, products, quantities) and send them to my web analytics program.

Does anyone know if this is possible?? Or do you have any idea how I can gather the information that I need?

Creating And Storing Variables In Cookie(s)?

Mar 29, 2011

how to store variables in cookies so that I can later use them in php code.Here is the basic javascript I want to use:

function alertSize() {
var myWidth = 0, myHeight = 0;
if( typeof( window.innerWidth ) == 'number' ) {[code]....

Now, I want to save myWidth and myHeight in a cookie(s) but I don't know how to. The window.alert() will only be for testing purposes and will not be needed in the final code. I also need to know if the codes need to be in certain sections such as <head>, etc.]

Switch Statements And Variables - Creating Bars?

Apr 18, 2011

I'm having some trouble with the Switch Statements. My program runs without it so I know that the problem is here. I believe the logic is sound so it may be due to incorrect syntax. The purpose of this function is to create bars, and the length of the bars is determined by the value of the "percent" variable (which is working fine) in the For loop after the Switch statements. The variable, "partyType" contains any of the text strings, such as "I", "D", etc.

function createBar(partyType,percent){
var barText;
case "D":
barText="<td class='dem'></td>";
case "R":
barText="<td class='rep'></td>";
case "I":
barText="<td class='ind'></td>";
case "G":
barText="<td class='green'></td>";
case "L":
barText="<td class='lib'></td>";
default: document.write("hi");
for(var i=1; i<percent; i++){

PHP Variables To Javascript Variables

May 6, 2006

I have a program written in Javascript and fully functioning which takes a user-selected directory name and then displays all the photos in that directory in a certain format.

I am now wanting to expand the program to allow users to optionally enter their own strings and the program will use all the photos from which use that string as a tag.

I have a PHP interface to flickr (called PHPflickr) which collects all the relevant photo urls. I now need to get these images back into my Javascript so I can process them using the existing functions (rather than rewrite all my functions in PHP code and have two sets of functions in the program). I found on another thread a means to do this for a date variable:

var jsArray = new Array(
$length = count($monthDataArray);
for ($i = 0; $i < $length; $i++)
echo '"' . addslashes($monthDataArray[$i]) . '"' . (($i < $length - 1) ? ',' : '') . "

but being completely new to PHP I'm not sure what "addslashes" might be or what formatting will be necessary if I am starting with an array of urls. Code:

Creating A Script

Nov 3, 2004

I need some help creating a script. Forgive me for posting this in multiple forums, as I first posted this in the php forum, but I know it can be done with a client side javascript as well. So here goes. I need to create a form where I can paste a list of domain names, click submit (or even just on mouseout, etc.), and have the script then return me to a page (or update a select field on the same page) with the domain names formatted within html code hyperlinking to the name.
For example, if I were to paste a list of

then click submit (or move my mouse out, [we're talking javascript here, right...]),
it would return the following results, ready for me to then paste into my webpage:

<a target="whatever" href=""></a><br>
<a target="whatever" href=""></a><br>
<a target="whatever" href=""></a><br>
<a target="whatever" href=""></a><br>
<a target="whatever" href=""></a><br>
<a target="whatever" href=""></a><br>

Creating A Menu

Aug 23, 2005

I'd like to create a simple menu that when I mouse over one of the menus, the sub-menus show up below the main menu. Kind a like pop-down menu, except the sub-menus show up horizontally below the menu.

Menu1 Menu2 Menu3
Sub-Menu1 Sub-Menu2 Sub-Menu3

I have searched a number of javascript sites to find such a code with no success. I suppose I could try to adapt a pop-down menu into this, but my javascript's knowledge is quite limited.

Creating A Heatmap

Jun 8, 2006

I've been thinking of an interesting project for learning javascript better, and decided I would have a go at creating a heatmap to show visitor activity on a site.

I have already written something which works out the percentage share of each link, but now I want to create something similar to that of the crazy egg heat map.

I just need a couple of starting pointers... to work out where a user clicks on a site, regardless of whether it is a link or not, i.e they click on a pic thinking it is a link or something, do I need to use coordinates?

Also, does anyone have any pointers on how to create the infrared style imagemap overlay?

Creating A Basic CMS

Aug 3, 2007

im need to create s simple CMS/WYSIWYG, but im not a pro on js. I found one on a website, but i dont want to resort to stealing codes.

basically, theres a textarea, where you put in text, and a button for bold, italics and underline, etc. if i highlight something on the textarea and hit the bold button, the text automatically gets surrounded by the <b></b> tags, or or whatevers convinient. when i look at the inline js code from the button, it calls a function, but id rather simplify the code, it should be something like onclick=insertstyle("b","textarea_name");

Dynamically Creating A New Div?

Feb 10, 2010

I'm using the following code to create a quick and dirty search tool for a site we're building at work as part of an RFP.My issue is that rather than creating a new window for the results page (which is what it does now), I'd really prefer that a new div be dynamically created on the page where the results would be placed.Maybe that's not possible? At the very least,how to make the results display in the same window rather than opening a new one?

var item = new Array();
// "Page Name","path","Page Title","Many,Key,Words","Descriptive Comments"
