Modifying ChildNodes Of A Cloned Div

Nov 23, 2005

I have a div 'readroot' that I clone. I change the change the id and
name of the childnodes of 'readroot' to the original name plus a

The problem is I have i have a div 'serials' inside 'readroot' and the
childnodes of 'readroot' are not modified with the current function i have.

What is the best way to modify the childnodes of the div serials?

I guess i could put another for loop inside the for loop of the
moreFields function but i am thinking a recursive function could do it. Code:

Getting All ChildNodes

Jul 11, 2006

this should be simple but I cannot figure it out. This is the HTML:

HTML Code:
<div id="box">
<p>two <strong>three</strong></p>
The JavaScript function has to take everything inside <div id="box"> and put it into another div. It should become:

HTML Code:
<div id="box">
<div class="content">
<p>two <strong>three</strong></p>
So how can I get all childNodes recursively to enclose them with another element?

I have a problem with getting the amount of childs in a XML structure,
the strucure is somewhat like the following:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>

If I use the following to get te amount of childs for xmlnames I get an
amount of 11:
xmlObj.responseXML.getElementsByTagName('xmlnames' )[0].childNodes.length

Is this wrong or maybe there is a better / other way of counting the
child amount?

Enumerating DOM ChildNodes

Jan 7, 2007

I am starting to learn using javascript on DOM. One of the first things
I tested was listing all the child nodes from an element. Like ->

*html code:
<div id="pagetitle">
<span>My Text</span>

In my javascript I tried to list all the child nodes from <div>, Firefox
and Opera gave me 3 -- 1)text node with a null value, 2)span, 3)text
node with a null value.

It look to me that the browsers treated the line break as a text node
with no value!!

If I modified the html code to :
<div id="pagetitle"><span>My Text</span></div>

Then the browsers gave me the right answer: 1

They still gave me a wrong answer of 3 if I put a space around the
<spanelement like this:
<div id="pagetitle"<span>My Text</span</div>

What did I do wrong? I would still want the elements to be on their own

Circle All The ChildNodes

May 20, 2005

I wanna get all the text nodes of the children of an element. The goal is to get an array with all the textNodes in each cell of a table, without any other nodes that might ocure whithin that cell (<p>, <br> etc...)

I mean if:
I need:
var txt = new Array()
txt[0] = &#3912;'
txt[1] = ?'

Now I had to circle through all the childNodes to extract all the text nodes. I have build a function, but something is wrong in the code, and I don't sense what. I need soime fresh eyes, any ideeas? Where's the mistake?:

<script type="text/javascript">
function checkCell(){
var allC = document.getElementById('tab').getElementsByTagName('td');//cells' collection
var txt = new Array()
for(var i=0;i<allC.length;i++){
var chC = allC[i].childNodes;
for(var j=0;j<chC.length;j++){

How To Keep All Childnodes Of The Clicked Parent

Nov 11, 2010

1 Door phone
1.1 Ready Kits
1.1.1 Audioset

But i want that when i click on 1(Door phone) ie Door phone...evry node should be opened instead of just one similary when i click on 2(CCTV), all its node should be opened.

Clarification Regarding ChildNodes Attribute

Aug 16, 2006

From what I've read, everything in the DOM is a node. Basically there are three types of nodes: text, element and attribute (there are more node types but these are the most common).

Let's say I have the following html:


Then this javascript:

var forms = document.getElementsByTagName("form")
var form = forms[0];
alert(form.childNodes.length); /* output is 3 */

I would think that the output should be 2 as I only see 2 childNodes for the form object: the <p> element is an element node and the <p> element has a text node, so that's a total of 2 nodes. Where is the 3rd one comming from.

To add to the confusion, if I change the html to:

<p title="jeff" id="22"></p>

The above javascript still outputs 3. I would think that the output is 4:
- 1st node is the <p> element
- 2nd node is the <p> element's attribute node "title"
- 3rd node is the <p> element's attribute node "id"
- 4th node is the <p> element's text node

Obviously I'm not correctly comprehending how childNodes are determined.

Counting Using .childNodes In IE And Mozilla

Sep 21, 2006

I want to count the number of childnodes, when i run this script in mozilla i get a different total for the number of childnodes from numkids then when the script runs in IE. Why is this? How Can I get the same number. I want to loop though an objects child elements setting them to invisible or visible

<script type="text/javascript"><!--
function rec(n) {

var kids = n.childNodes;
var numkids = kids.length;

for(var i = numkids-1; i>=0; i--)

// sets child to hidden
//kids[i].style.visibility = 'hidden'

var a = document.getElementById('commentholder0');

// this function loops though the parts and makes then invisiable so you cant see them overlap


My html is here:

<ul id= "commentholder0" >
<li id="comment1">this is a test</li>
<li id="comment2">this 2 is a test</li>

Problem Addressing Objects Using ChildNodes

Jul 23, 2005

i'm working on a portion of a CMS that allows content-admins to browse
a product list, and add individual products into the taxonomy by
clicking checkboxes next to categories they might belong in.

since the taxonomy is a rather long list, i'm hiding and showing divs
for the secondary and tertiary links, so when a user clicks on the
checkbox for the parent category, the children appear in a second (and
third) div, with checkboxes of their own.

however, i'd like for the secondary and third level checkboxes to
become unchecked when the parent is. i've tried addressing them in
numerous ways, but something consistently gets lost, in that i keep
getting "x doesn't have any properties" errors.

var parentnode = document.getElementById(divName);
var allMyChildren = parentnode.childNodes.getElementsByName("INPUT");

this returns the proper length, but then

for (var i=0;i < allMyChildren.length;i++) {
var chklist = allMyChildren[i];
if (chklist.type == "checkbox") {
// uncheck it

this consistently returns that chklist has no properties...

This is handy when making dynamic forms. Will reproduce and return a duplicate of an existing select menu. Just pass the id of the select you wish to clone.

var sel=document.createElement('select');
var len=obj.childNodes.length;
for(var i=0;i<len;i++)
var opt=document.createElement("option");

Need File Input Cloned From 1 Form Into Another?

May 17, 2009

I have an <input type="file" name="image" /> in an html form that get's submitted via method="POST". But I can't submit this normally, since this is all I want submitted, and there is already a <form> tag defined above the code and than below the code, closes the form with </form> that must remain there. Since, there is no way to have forms inside of forms, I am using Javascript to create a form and submit it on the fly. But I need to get a copy of the file input element defined in the document.forms.creator form.

I handle the action with a php file that calls $_FILES['image']['name'] and $_FILES['image']['tmp_name']. The problem is I need to create the form on the fly, must clone the <input type="file" name="image" /> so that it obtains the $_FILES['image']['name'] and $_FILES['image']['tmp_name'] and submits it all on the FLY! Here's what I got so far, coded in php, but you can see the Javascript in there as well. It submits it fine, but $_FILES['sigImg']['name'] and $_FILES['sigImg']['tmp_name'] are NOT SET for some reason...

echo '<tr><td colspan="2"><a href="#" name="sig' . $user_info['id'] . '"></a><center><b>Signature Image Rotator</b></center><br /><center>
Add Image: <input type="file" size="48" id="imagefile" name="image" />  <input type="button" value="Upload" onclick="createFormAndSubmit()"></center>';


I have tested this in IE 8 and doesn't set $_FILES['sigImg']['name'] and $_FILES['sigImg']['tmp_name'] to anything. I don't want the value of the file input, since this will be different depending on the browser. And in IE 8, you'll need to have some settings enabled to be able to get the full path, otherwise will return "fakepath".

Cloned Selectbox Will Not Refresh Content

Jan 19, 2006

I have two selectboxes containing several option. I am able to move options from one selectbox to the other selectbox (by .insertBefore for example).

However, when I clone those selectboxes, the cloned selectboxes behave incorrect. I am able to move options from one to the other, but they won't show correctly. Only after a browser resize or minimize/maximize window will the selectboxes be 'refreshed' to reflect their real content. See the following code example. Bottom selectboxes are clones of the top ones. Code:

Changing Attributes Of Input Tag In Cloned Row?

Jun 24, 2010

I'm extending the number of rows of a table by cloning the last row (=newLastRow). Each row has a single input tag in it, with a name which includes the row number and an onclick function call which passes the row number to the function:<input type='text' class='clickable' name='inp8.1' size='20' value='xyx' onclick='toggle("table8");'>The new cloned row has an input tag with the same parameter value as the cloned one, obviously. I need to increment this: name='inp9.1', 'toggle("table9")'.y question is simple but I'm just starting with DOM: how do I refer to the input tag in the newLastRow so I can change these values?
