i am having trouble understanding what the difference is between BLUR and FOCUS. I need to include these functions in my form and i am unsure what these features do and how i incorporate these into my form.
I'm having problems with applying focus() to an element inside a blur() event handler. I get different results in different browsers. Specifically, IE and Opera seem to work fine, Firefox doesn't seem to do anything, and Chrome and Safari only do half of the job. Basically, I have an <input> with a blur() event handler attached to it. The event handler contains the code to apply focus to that same input, effectively disallowing the user to remove focus from the input.
I'm working with ClueTip and have run into some oddities.In particular, I want to show ClueTip when a textbox receives focus.The source shows me that I can use activation:'focus' for this and that will result in the cluetip showing on focus and disappearing on blur. Showing the cluetip is working fine, blurring is not.[code]
I have a form with a certain number of elements, i want it to at first only display the first, then when i deselect that element the next one is shown and focus moved to that and so on until the end of the form. Im new to jQuery and just
I'm trying to create a control which when the mouse button gets pressed on one div an absolute positioned div pops up in place of the cursor. From there the cursor should interact with the dialog before the mouse button is released. In other words one element will catch onmousedown, display the popup, and the popup element will catch onmouseup. This works fine in IE as the popup automatically accepts following events, but my problem is in Firefox.
In Firefox everything behind the popup still receive events even though they can't be seen (hidden by the popup). I have to release the mouse button and then click on the popup again before it accepts the onmouseup event.
I also used a different cursor on the popup to see if Firefox recognized it was there at all. Still the cursor doesn't change until I release themouse button and move the cursor across the popup element.
I've tried focus/blur, timeout delays, hiding the first element (the one which receives onmousedown) but nothing works.
The only thing that works is hiding the entire body and then using setTimeout to show the entire body again 1ms later. Obviously though that is very ugly.
I'm trying to build a data navigation utility that will allow a central "map" page to control a number of tab pages that are loading individual pages from a large set of HTML. All are local file://localhost/, with localhost popups enabled. (for dev/testing all popups are enabled since firebug 1.3.3 has problems loading localhost .js code) preference to "raise and lower windows" has been enabled I am using firefox 3.0.8 on FreeBSD 6.4
Anyway, I can't get window.focus() and blur() to work between cooperating tab/windows who know each other's names.
Here following are two cooperating mirror tab pages that i'm trying to get working. Have tried a number of combinations of the focus() and blur() calls. Have tried with/without messaging. Messaging works fine.
I have noticed that the calling tab seems to unload/reload as a result of the click event. This still allows the message to get through OK, but I guess the reload could be taking the focus again.
An annoying alert() dialog could of course get focus to the message receiver, but it requires another click to get it out of the way.
The concept of these focus() and blur() calls is so simple, and I've searched all over the web for examples, but nothing seems applicable.
Have also seen that this may be a bug in Firefox.
======== code for "mirror" pages "focus1" and "focus2" follows:
a) Keyboard users to see a focus outline on navigation links. b) Keyboard users to see the outline still there if they use the browser Back button, and continue tabbing from that link onwards. c) Mouse users to NOT see an outline if they use the browser Back button.
Good: If the user clicks inside the text box, but after the default text, the text gets cleared and the cursor shows up at the beginning of the text box.
Bad: If the user clicks inside the text box, but directly on the default text, the text gets cleared, but the cursor is not displayed and the text box does not have the focus. In order to start typing, the user must click on the text box again.
So my question is: If the cursor is inside a string of text which gets cleared, is there a way to reinstate the cursor and the text box focus?
I have a web site where multiple html pages are opened at a time & messages are received or those pages are refreshed automatically using meta-tag.
first, i put the object on a variableEnviro["lastfocus"] = $(event.target);after that i do an action and the data come back from the httpRequestthen I do that$(Enviro["lastfocus"]).focus();But nothhing append, no error bot no result.
I've got a strange problem in IE that I wonder if anyone has seen before. Basically, I've got a two window scenario. The parent window opens the child via window.open(). The child contains a form and submissions are processed in the child window. When the child window form is submitted and the results are returned, an alert box is thrown up via setTimeout("alert(....)", 2000). For some odd reason, when this alert is displayed, focus is transferred back to the parent window with the alert box on top. When you press the OK button on the alert, focus is transferred back to where it should be; on the child window. This doesn't happen all the time. But it happens. Is there something I can do to solve this mystery?
This JS code is on RoR+ImgMap site.I've tweak several portion of ImgMap, specifically around line 2205 of the file imgmap.js by adding code.so that when the user draws a shape, the focus will be set to the respective href field, instead of the default behavior - adding new row(imgmap form).
I'm developing am income tax calculator, and everything is going swell. Currently the user can type in their adjusted gross income (AGI), hit submit, and learn the amount of income tax they would pay, their tax rate, and their income after tax.
I've played around with the events to get the submit button to work in FF, IE, Chrome and Safari -- and I've gotten the enter button to work before with some stock code, but here's the catch: when the user presses enter, i want the focus to leave the input box. I don't care where it goes (submit button, I suppose?) but i need it to leave the input field so the onfocus="clearText(this);" event can fire when they return to type in a new income.
The default behaviour of focus() method is displaying the cursor at start of the char(In FF focusOffset is 0(zero) and anchorOffset is 0(zero)). I need to display the focus at end of char after calling focus() method.
Is there a way to set the focus on a form field without using focus()? I use ajax to build the form and if I try to set the focus using focus() an error is generate because of the form hasn't been built by ajax. So, it would be nice if I could set the focus() as I built the form.
