I am wondering if it is at all possible to create a button that--when
clicked--grabs a paragraph of text that a user has highlighted. So you
go to this website, then highlight a section of text. Once you have
the text selected with you mouse, you then click the button. The
button executes a function which acquires the selected text in a
string. Is this hypothetical situation possible? Thank you for the
time it took to read this post.
I have many divs with spans inside(just like it is below-no extra ids,classes for spans: [...] <div> <span style="color:red;">a</span> <span style="color:blue;">b</span> <span style="color:white;">c</span> </div> <div> <span style="color:red;">d</span> <span style="color:blue;">a</span> <span style="color:white;">a</span> </div> [...]
What I would like to achieve: user selects with mouse "ab", click button(input type=button) which remove style from selected span/spans. Similar behavior like it is in TinyMCE.
It needs to allow the user to highlight some text within a paragraph. If the correct text (with an error) is selected it should provide feedback that the user has correctly selected this text.
So what I need to do is
1. Get the text selection 2. Compare this text selection to a predefined answer 3. Provide feedback to the user e.g. they are correct if text selection = predefined answer, and incorrect if text selection != predefined answer
I am a JS newbie and I'm wondering if there a way to figure out the sentence from which a word has been highlighted. Essentially, when a user selects a word or a phrase, I should output the sentence from which it's been selected. Is this possible with JS or with any server side languages?
I have a function that lets me convert one character and throw an alert with the corresponding ASCII value, but what I am having trouble with is applying it to a text box. What I'm trying to do is when characters are entered the function will loop through the entered values and throw an alert for each of the corresponding ASCII values for each of the characters entered. I am trying to alert the user for every character that is out of the range of ASCII equivalent 1 - 128. Test code:
I am creating a little html editor, and I want to highlight a chunk of unformatted text, click a <buttonand put a <pand the beginning and a </pat the end. I assume there is a DOM element relating to this, can anybody help please ?
I am trying to place text output from a url on another webpage.The output is the status of an alarm system.hash and mac info remove for security reasons.I would like to place these three outputs on another page.
Here's what I have so far, which handles characters as they're typed in. Could someone please show me how I would loop through all the values that are entered if a block of text was pasted in, and then grab the ascii value(s) that are > 128?: Code:
like for example i have text areas named upload1 and upload2when I click or add input on upload1 a drop down list below upload2 will not change, but when I add input on upload2 the dropdown will select "parts"
I'm trying to 'wrap tags' around text in a text box.
Is there any way via JS to grab the name of the file that its running?
I want an external JS loaded onto a page to enable a function when something is clicked that it passes control over to another page but adds the name of the file that is currently running as one of the URL parameters.
Perhaps there is a clever way to get it off the URL?
The problem I'm having is that id GlobalList has CSS childs and when I click within the DIV if its not GlobalList then it closes out. I'm trying to see how I can modify it, so it won't close if I click within the DIV structure
i'm using a great script from oreilly for an efficient rollover effect on an image map - highly recommend for anyone needing something like this - link is below - my question is how do i modify it so the menu item *stays* highlighted when the page is selected? that is, in the example, if you rollover or click 'home', the image changes, but once you select it, the effect goes away. i've tried a few things but am getting bogged down as to the best approach.

I've got the following code inside a js function that highlights the table row (multiple, dynamic number of rows) onclick. But I'm trying to figure out a way to "unhighlight" that previously highlighted row back to what it was before the user clicked on it. Is it possible to save-off the "this" so that it's the "previous this" ? [code]...
I am messing around with Google Maps a little and the fundamental difficulty in building anything useful is extrapolating address information from another website. I would like to be able to use a form like yahoo yellow pages send it a zip code and get back a bunch of, say, banks in that zip code and parse the address out. Some things, very few, actually return data in the XML format, but how do you write a script that send a request to a website and then returns that request as a DOM object. I'll even take HTML and then I'll parse it out myself, but how do you do that.
I know it sounds fundamental, but I'm a real beginner in this, so if you can push me in the right direction I would appreciate it too.
