Dynamic Select Element: Problem With Onchange Event

Jul 20, 2005

For some reason my change() function is only called when the page loads. I'd
much rather it gets called when the select changes.

Here's the code:

window.onload = init;

function init() {
var new_select = new Selector('tdata','myselect','myid');
var new_select_list = new DataSource("some_list");
new_select_list.addItem(1,"One");
new_select_list.addItem(2,"Two");
new_select_list.addItem(3,"Three");
new_select_list.addItem(4,"Four");
new_select_list.addItem(5,"Five");
new_select.setDataSource(new_select_list);
new_select.formInput("form","input");
}

Selector = function(container_id,name,id) {
var container = document.getElementById(container_id);
this.node = document.createElement("select");
//this.node = new Select();
container.appendChild(this.node);
this.node.name = name;
this.node.id = id;
}

Selector.prototype.setDataSource = function(ds) {
this.dataSource = ds;
for(var i = 0; i < ds.items.length; i++) {
if(ds.items[i] != undefined) {
var option = new Option(ds.items[i],i,false,false);
this.node.options[this.node.options.length] = option;
}
}
}

Selector.prototype.formInput = function(form,element) {
var myform = document.getElementById(form);
this.input = document.createElement("input");
this.input.name = element;
//this.input.type = "hidden";
myform.insertBefore(this.input,myform.firstChild);
this.node.onchange = change(this);
}

function change(selector) {
alert("hello");
selector.input.value = selector.node.value;
}

DataSource = function(name) {
this.name = name;
this.items = new Array();
}

DataSource.prototype.addItem = function(id,item) {
this.items[id] = item;
}

and the html:

<html>
<head>
<script defer src="/javascript/selectors.js"
type="text/javascript"></script>
</head>
<body>
<form id=form>
<table border=1>
<tr>
<td>
Select:
</td>
<td id=tdata>
</td>
</tr>
</table>
</form>
</body>
</html>

IE Bug: Onchange Event Not Called When Using <optgroup> In Select Drop-down

Jul 20, 2005

In a <select> drop-down, the onchange event isn't called when
scrolling through the dropdown using the mouse-wheel and when crossing
over a new <optgroup>.

Using the example below, notice how the onchange event isn't called
when mouse wheel scrolling between A3 and B1, but it works properly
when scrolling between A1 and A2.

E.g.
------------------------------------------
<html>
<body onload="document.forms['myForm'].elements['mySelect'].focus()">

<form name="myForm" id="myForm">
<select onchange="alert('onchange event');" name="mySelect"
id="mySelect">
<optgroup label="Group A">
<option value="A1">A1</option>
<option value="A2">A2</option>
<option value="A3">A3</option>
</optgroup>
<optgroup label="Group B">
<option value="B1">B1</option>
<option value="B2">B2</option>
<option value="B3">B3</option>
</optgroup>
<optgroup label="Group C">
<option value="C1">C1</option>
<option value="C2">C2</option>
<option value="C3">C3</option>
</optgroup>
</select>
</form>

</body>
</html>

Select Element With Dynamic Multiple SELECTED

Feb 6, 2009

I have a select element that has up to 200 items in a drop down. Each <option> element has a value 1 to 200, ie., <option value="1">text</option>, etc.

Given a list of values, such as 4, 43, 123, 199, how can I use that list to call a function and write "Selected" for those option elements in the drop down menu?

Click Event In SELECT Element

Jul 23, 2005

Does someone can help me with the following problem?
I have a SELECT form tag, with some OPTIONS elements. I am using the
following code to detect a click in the SELECT.

....
document.onclick = fnc_document_click
....

function fnc_document_click(){
if(window.event.srcElement.id == "my_lst"){
......
}
}

How can I avoid the "if" if user click in a area of SELECT out of the
options elements? (The SELECT object is higher than the the goups of
OPTIONS its contains)

In other words, how can detect if the click Iinside the SELECT element)
happens in a OPTION element or not?

Dynamically Add OnClick Event To Select Element

Feb 13, 2010

I have a function that dynamically creates a new div, part of the function looks like:
root = document.getElementById('rootbox2');
var oDiv=root.appendChild(document.createElement("div"));
with(oDiv){
id=ji;
className="workshopRow";
setAttribute("attending","");
setAttribute("attending_count","0");
}
var oText = oDiv.appendChild (document.createTextNode(""));
var oDiv1=oDiv.appendChild(document.createElement("div"));
with(oDiv1){
className="workshopName";
}
var oText = oDiv1.appendChild (document.createTextNode(""));
var oSelect=oDiv1.appendChild(document.createElement("select"));
with(oSelect){
name="select_"+ji;
id="select_"+ji;
className="workshop";
onchange="calc_subtotal("+ji+")";
}
var oText = oSelect.appendChild (document.createTextNode(""));
var oOption=oSelect.appendChild(document.createElement("option"));
with(oOption){
value="12";
setAttribute("price",10);
}
What I am looking to do is add an onchange event to the select element, not sure if i have programmed it correctly but it does not seem to work.

OnChange Without Appending OnChange Directly To Element?

Feb 10, 2010

Can I target the element and base an onChange outside of directly calling it in the element tag?

Due to the nature of my script, the best I can do is wrap a tag around the element.

example of what I am trying to do

Code:

<script>

document.form.field1.onchange = function();

<script>

And if this might work, can I call it in the head or must it come after the element.

JQuery :: OnChange Event - Web Application - Each Blur Event Makes A Call Webserver To Store Value Of Textfield

Jan 21, 2010

I'm currently facing a weird issue with the onchange event. I have a web application where each blur event makes a call the webserver to store the value of the textfield. I only want to trigger that ajax call when something has changed, so i track the onchange event on each textfield to set a flag if something has changed.

The onchange event always fires to first time when i click outside of a textfield even if i didn't change anything in the field.

I narrowed it down to the following: A prefilled textfield always fires the onchange-event the first time you leave the textfield. An initially empty textfield does not fire the onchange event.

Sample code (IE 8 on Windows 7 computer):

script:

SELECT OnChange Auto Fill Other SELECT Boxes

Jul 25, 2002

I searched here and some other places on the net but cant find anything that suits my needs. I have a SELECT box with 3 values Code:

<form name="form1">
<select name="length">
<option name="length" value="none">--Select for All--</option>
<option name="length" value="5">--5 Days--</option>
<option name="length" value="7">--7 Days--</option>
<option name="length" value="10">--10 Days--</option>
</select>
</form>

OnChange, I want to invoke a function that auto populates the rest of the SELECT fields in the form. The select boxes will vary in quantity as the page is dynamic, but the values are always the same (like the code above).

Does this make sense?

Conditional SELECT Element - Determined By Original Select Element On Page Load?

Jul 31, 2009

When the page loads there will already be a drop-down on the page, here's an example of the drop down.

<select id="dropdown">
<option value="2121S">Option text</option>
<option value="2122S">Option text</option>
<option value="2123S">Option text</option>
<option value="2121A">Option text</option>
<option value="2122A">Option text</option>
<option value="2121K">Option text</option>
</select>

On page load it will evaluate this drop-down and repopulate it determined on their values. If there is an S in any of the values the drop-down will generate an option for 'S' like so.. <option value="s">S Option Text</option> And for the first code example in this post - the Javascript would be able to repopulate the drop-down with the following:

Dynamic Onchange Not Working

Mar 28, 2006

I've got some javascript that adds in form elements after a page has loaded. The checkboxes need an onchange event added to them which will call a function. However, if I enter the function call against the onchange event it doesn't work, if i enter the full function against the onchange then it does. Hard to explain but here's the working and non-working Code:

Getting Dynamic Rows Inputs To Multiply 'onchange' Of The Value In The Input In Each Row?

Feb 4, 2010

getting dynamic rows inputs to multiply 'onchange' of the value in the input in each row. It works in the first row inserted no matter what rowindex that row is moved to. All following rows only accept the initial input value and never change the 'cost' innerHTML of the colRow[i]. I figure I need a parentNode.parentNode syntax to make this function work in all rows.

Every thing is Client-side javascript and all rows are inserted to 'cartbody.insertRow[0]'. 'qtymultiply()' Function As is:

Code:

function qtymultiply(){
var cartitems=document.getElementsByClassName('itemrow');
var colRows=cartitems;

Internet Explorer Not Rendering Onchange In A Dynamic Form

Jan 14, 2011

I have created some Javascript to make a form application dynamic. My problem is that the code works in every browser except for internet explorer. I get no errors from Firebug and I have made sure that internet explorer has javascript enabled. I am completely in the dark as to why this would be happening. It works perfectly in Firefox, Chrome, and Safari. Here is my entire code for the form, it is for a housing application for a college,

Code:
function runAll2 (processPart, areaType, spaceType, mealType) {
pp = document.getElementById('fld2416');
at = document.getElementById('fld2417');
st = document.getElementById('fld2418');
mt = document.getElementById('fld2481');

[code]....

This for is supposed to go live on Tuesday and I didnt realize that it wasnt working in IE until today. I am pretty good at HTML and CSS and know a bit about cross browser testing, I just didnt even think about it because this form is entirely ASP and Java, my bad.

OnChange Event Is Not Working

Jul 23, 2005

In JavaScripts checks for an onChange event against the value of the
textbox at the time of the last onChange event. Since an onChange
Event never fired after you changed the text first time , suppose we
put the same value in the text box then no event is fired.

If we put some other value then it became fired...
It wouldn't fire if we put the same value...

I don't want to use onBlur etc... Isthere any solution with onChange
Event...?
