I would like to determine where the current insertion point is in a text field.
Say I had a text field that held 80 characters. I would like to display to the user the current position of the insertion point at any point in the field.
I have found the TextRange object and have found examples of how to insert text at a particular location. I have not been able to find a way to return a number depicting the current location of the cursor.
I have a contenteditable div, it has some paragraphs in it.Assuming a situation, when I click the button "set caret position", the main div will focus, the caret will start at position number 8 of second paragraph, which means the caret will appear after the word "draw".How would you do it?
I wonder how to get/set the caret position of a textfield. I dont wanna paste something, but only set the caret position. With firefox I can do this stuff: textfield.startSelection = pos;With IE I dont have a plan how to solve.
I'm using a div with contenteditable=true, and I need to know where the caret is for operations like splitting the html contents of that div where the caret is. Ultimately, if a piece of text is selected, I'll want to split that html content on the selection start / end.jCaret only seems to work for textareas.Is this possible in a div?
I've been able to find for an editable HTML textarea for a WYSIWYG editor. It can save and restore the caret position. It works on FF3.5+, IE8, but does not work on Opera 11, Safari 5, or Chrome 10. Any ideas why? I'm just trying to find some code that works on FF3+, opera 10+, safari 5, chrome 8+, and IE7+.
I have a contentEditable element, and am using setTimeout() to call a function which changes the innerHTML of the div. Problem is that changing innerHTML moves the caret to the end of the text.
I need to keep the caret pos so the user can keep typing. I tried storing the caret pos with cursorPos=document.selection.createRange().duplicate();
And then later restoring it with cursorPos.select() - which is IE only, but it doesn't work because the content of the div gets changed between calls, and the behavior is undefined (it basically selects everything) ...
In IE it is a simple matter of: range.text += text; but I am having great difficulty figuring it out for FF.I have looked online for hours but the only solutions that I can find are to do with inserting text into textareas which supply you with nice 'selectionStart', 'selectionEnd' properties. Using a textarea would be useless for my purposes and a div element does not have such properties. An implementation in this case I am thinking would rely solely on the range object for the necesary selection / cursor position information, but I cannot figure out how to do this using the FF/W3C Range object.What I'm basically doing is trying to enable the user to paste unformatted (plain) text into a contenteditable zone for a WYSIWYG editor. I have got it working in IE, but FF is a whole other kettle of fish for this particular issue.
There is a Text Area that user can enter text. assume that user enter something and put a dot Following values should be populate in a drop down at the place where dot locate .
like when we get the string object using Net Beans IDE and when we put "Object." , drop down will be displayed with available methods for that particular object. idea is to build a editor using java script.
1. When I have the "<textarea>" code lines in it put a text-area on the page, but it puts all of the code following that first text-area line into the text-area box and doesn't execute that segment of code.
2. When there is no "<textarea>" (for the sake of seeing if the rest of it worked) it doesn't check the survey.
I'm stumped and can't figure out what to do at this point Code and pictures follow:
have to copy and save a selected area from a .php or .html file it contains a table in the my current webpage and have to copy and save a table data or image in table data so that It can be available as saved image for future reference.
Where, when you click "here", you alert the position of the cursor (using screenX an screenY, if I read it right). But I'm seeing things about registering events to the .document, etc., but no easy solutions. The ones that look easy say that you need to "pass the event" through the function, but they never say how.
I'm trying to find the position of an element with respect to the view port area. So, when the user scrolls the page down, I want to know the x and y positions of the element with respect to the viewing (view port) area.
The overall goal is to know exactly where on the element this user clicked.
I was wondering, let say I have the following HTML fragment:
<b>this is some text<b> <span>This is some more text<span>
<script> //my script here </script>
and inside the script above, I wish to gain access to the elements and text above. Is it possible to do so without having to explicitly denote an ID attribute somewhere to use as the starting pointing? Something like:
currentposition.previousSibling //should return <span> tag
I have a situation with setTimeout where I need to check the number of milliseconds remaining so that the program logic can decide whether to follow through with the operation or delay it a few more seconds.
Pretty much this is used to reduce lag on the user's end so that if they are in the middle of typing it won't execute the timed function unless they have stopped typing for a few seconds, making it safe to perform the operation (in the background) without interfering with their user experience.
In any event, there doesn't seem to be a native way to check the current progress or remaining millisecond count on a setTimeout. That is, unless I just haven't been able to find it.
I would like to be able to tween an image dynamically from it's current position on a mouse over event. A good example of what I want can be found here. (the nav cloud) I haven't been able to find anything on jquery or anywhere else, so here's what I've come up with so far:
I have a form setup so that selecting a radio button opens a specific text field. The problem is if the user starts to enter information, then switches to a different radio button (perhaps they chose the wrong radio to start), the text they already started to enter on the previous textfield doesn't get cleared. This will be a problem later when inserting to sql.
As of right now I have a code that will work in IE but wont work in FireFox...go figure. Basically what I want to have happen is when you type in an area code it will provide an output in a predetermined area of the page.
For Example: Input- 512 Output - Austin, TX
The code that I have doesn't work with firefox and I was just wondering if there was a code that would allow that to happen.
Would u pls let me know whether the following is possible or not: User can be able to insert text on a text-box or text-area(form) as usually we use text-area to do so. But I want to put some readonly text using an open and close tag
for example: <ro>This is readonly text</ro>insert your text here Can I be able to make the text inside <ro>..</ro> tag readonly, it means user can't be able to modify or delete this readonly text. readonly text length not fixed. only way to recognize the readonly text is the <ro> tag.
<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0" ><tr><td valign="top" style="font: inherit;">Hello, I would like to know if I can load a small text from a external source into a textarea. the external source is a php that will write some clean text depending on the vars received. I know load() can do the job for a div but I don't think it will work for a textarea. </td></tr></table>
