## Prototype To Sort An Associative Array On The Array Key (in Ascending Order)

Sep 1, 2010

I am building a customised javascript prototype to sort an associative array on the array key (in ascending order). Basically, I am separating the array keys into a separate array and then using .sort() to sort the keys and then reassembling the original associative array elements according to the sorted keys array.

The sorting works ok except that when I run the test code below, the outputed sorted associative array has an extra element at the end of the array whose key is the name of the prototype function and the value for that element is the function code itself. Obviously I am misunderstanding something about associative arrays or how javascript prototypes work.

## Sort Array Of Numbers And Letters

Jul 6, 2010

I have an array which is populated by a count of instances from another array, so its ends up with data like:

I need to sort this by the number before the 'x'.

At present, a .sort() would put 1 - 9 before anything greater than 10, obviously not what I'm after.

How can I make it put this array into the correct order (e.g 22 x something else, 17 x another event, 5 x that event, 2 x this event)

## Create An Array Sort Of Thing To Convert The Country Name's To Continent?

Dec 21, 2010

If you've seen from my previous posts in this forum, you may have noticed that i'm a newbie when it comes to javascript, anyway. I'm trying to create an array sort of thing to convert the country name's to continent, and set it as a cookie. I spent all that time writing a PHP script for this same thing only to find out that my webhost does not have the maxmind apache module. I also don't know how to get the value of the country from a javascript function.

PHP Code:
function country_to_continent( \$country ){\$continent = '';if( \$country== 'AF' ) \$continent ='AS'; --CUT OFF DUE TO TEXT LIMIT, FIND THE FULL CODE HERE: http://infinitymedia.pastebin.com/7WWDeyVT return \$continent;}

## JQuery :: Drag & Drop To Sort Categories And Post This New Sort Order To DB?

Jun 9, 2009

OK so Ive been using jquery for a little bit now and love it. I am a ColdFusion developer. I have a need where I would like to present the user with a list of categories and the user can drag and drop to sort, but then I need to post this new sort order to the database. So I see there are a ton of cool drag & drop plugins for jquery. I understand how they work and I can get it to work as far as spitting out DIVS or spitting out ULs that can be sorted, but then what? So now they are sorted on my screen and not really part of the form. How do I translate that into something I can do a post to the database with? Do I do an AJAX call every time they drop an item and try to extrapolate the sort order on that item after they drop it? Do I populate a hidden form field with the constantly updating sort order list? MAybe a list of ID's? How does everyone else go about this this task? I'm sure there is more than one way and I'm sure this is a common task.

## Language Don't Work On IE / Fix It?

Apr 15, 2009

The previous developer who has been working here used javascript on some forms and they're not functioning properly when opened with IE (any version)

Quote: http://www.avis.com.lb/reservation-inquiry?group=%27Group+V+(e.g.+Renault+Kangoo)%27&cor=%27Lebanon%27&corofres=%27LEBANON%27&hr=%2709%27&monthcoll=04

On firefox, it doesn't prompt any error and as you can see, it auto selects "Lebanon" as a country and it selects the date with 3 days in between till the return date. These don't work on IE, it just shows blank.

Here is the javascript used. code...

## Detecting User's Language?

Jul 11, 2006

If I want to detect a user's language, so that I can
change some text to suit them, how do I do that in
Javascript?

Or aren't modern browsers supposed to be able
to cope with more than one language on a page,
separated somehow by language identifiers,
and display only the appropriate text? Maybe
I was dreaming when I read that.

## Meta Tag For Scripting Language

## Language For Online Graphing

Jul 20, 2005

I am considering writing an online graphing utility. I plan it to be
of good quality, such that an undergraduate university student can
print it out and include it with a lab report.
Data points will be entered, having been generated by another program;
the utility will NOT accept functions for plotting--just the data
points.

As far as I know, Javascript does not provide graphing functionality.
Could somebody in this group please let me know what the best language
to use for writing this utility.

## Use Of Type And/or Language In Script Tag

Jul 20, 2005

I am a bit cconfused with the different tags I encounter to start a script.
I used to use: language="Javascript"

I did see some javascript1.2 (i think) too, but never used that.

But when I let my favorite editor (Eclipse) do some codecompletion I get:

<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" src="jsfile.js"></script>

Forget about the src for a moment. I see 2 definition in the same tag.

Is that ok? And on a sidenote: Am I safe when I use the modern type="text/javascript" only? The answer probably depends on the browser.

Where can I find some coherent information? Some overview with browsers and javascripttags and such.

## Cript Language To Use Within HTML Page?

Aug 17, 2010

I am trying to develop a form that will be used to place orders. The form contains a table that has 1/2 dozen columns. Three of the columns are named: Item-Name, Quantity, and Price.

Item-Name and Price are literals (readable only). Quantity is a number the user will enter. Multiple items can be selected.

At the bottom of the table, I would like to have a box called "Total". In HTML, is there a way to do arithmetic functions? In my case: QUANTITY times PRICE and add the amount to whatever was in TOTAL. If it can't be done using HTML, is there any script language I can use within the HTML page?
