Onfocus Closure Scope Error

Aug 19, 2006

In my UI framework, I have an event handler - just like many frameworks do. My handler is a static object, and contains methods to take care of things like mouse events, etc. However, upon adding a method to handle onfocus today, I ran into a very odd problem in Firefox. I've put together an example page that generates the error:

Share Variables Between InnerFunction And Closure Scope?

Sep 22, 2010

I had a original function in this format/syntax:

Code:
GlobalFunction(){
InnerFunction(){
// ... long definition here ...

[Code]....

Other words the innerFunction behaves like it is global and has not shared variables with myClosure!

Pop-Up Closure Detection

I'm using the code below for the "launch page" to open a JS window and know when it has been closed, and than execute some other code that should be run after the pop-up closes.

This works, and does exactly what I want. Do any of you JS experts see any reason for concern? Anything that makes it suboptimal?

How To Set Flag Using Closure

Oct 7, 2011

I would like to set a flag using a closure so that the internal value of that closure is preserved for me to retrieve it when different events occur. It is one of those times where lack of block scope will stop me from doing what I want to do unless I can set a boolean and preserve its value in a function.

Control Over IE Window Closure

Oct 31, 2006

I am currently strungling with the fact that I want to control the
browser closure. In fact, I have a webbased application in which I use
a wizard. Ones the wizard starts, a lock is set on specific objects in
the db. On all pages of the wizard, the user get the possibility to
exit the wizard by clicking on a custom "Exit" button. That way, I know
that the user has left the wizard and that way I can unlock the locked
objects in the db again.

So far, so good. But users are used to close browser windows by
clicking on the "X" in the titlebar. If they close a window that way,
the locks aren't unset and no other user may start the wizard again. If
I should know that he had clicked on the "X", I could unlock the
objects.

I have searched a lot on the net but all results aren't sufficient for
me.

Some solutions which don't work:

1) onunload event: =Also called when the window is refreshed or
forwarded.

2) "titlebar = no" property while opening the first page of the wizard,
is not working (the titlebar is still enabled). And even then, the
users can close the window by clicking CRL-F4. This key combination
isn't disabled by the "hotkeys = no" property.

Note: if the client's pc crashes or if the user kills the wizard
process via the task manager (exceptional cases), they have to call
maintenance to reset the locks. This is a requirement, defined by
bussiness.

Closure Works In Constructor But Not In Prototype?

Jan 6, 2011

I'm not sure why this: Code: console.log(instance2.getAnotherKey()()); returns Object { a = "a" } when I clearly reassigned the value of the a property. Reassigning the property caused change in this line:

Code:
ref.a = 'abc'; console.log(inst.getZ()); //Object {a="abc"} So why does it work when you call an instance method in the constructor (e.g. this.getZ()) but doesn't work when you call the instance method in prototype?

Jquery :: Grouping Existing Top Level Functions Inside Closure

Nov 24, 2009

I'm trying to group some existing top-level functions inside a closure (to avoid polluting the global namespace) but I'm not quite getting it to work. First, all the JS works outside my anonymous function, but once I put it in the anonymous function I get an error of "crossfade is not defined". I'm not quite getting why the the setInterval/crossfade works outside the anonymous function but not inside. Anything inside start() should be able to see vars/functions outside start() and it should all be protected in the closure created by the top-level anonymous function? I'm not trying to access anything *within* crossfade(), I'm just trying to execute it.

Code:
(function($) {
//vars up here that internal functions can access
//also using some jquery inside here, so using $
function crossfade() {
//body here
}
//other functions
function start() {
//body here
cInterval = setInterval('crossfade()', 5000);
}
})(jQuery);

Trying To Work With Onfocus

Jul 23, 2005

Here is the layout of my form from left to right, from top to down.

- buttonA, buttonB, buttonC
- textbox, textbox, textbox
- buttonXXX

After the user types in the textboxes and press enter (with the cursor still
in one of the textboxes), buttonXXX should be pressed by default.(the user
is too lazy to take the cursor over to buttonXXX and click).

The problem is the top/left most button (button A) gets pressed which annoys
them to death. So I tried to do this.

In the bottonA's onfocus event handle-
document.forms[0].elements['buttonXXX'].focus() .

Result: ButtonXXX receives focus alright, but the code for buttonA still
executes!

Onfocus For A <select>

Jul 20, 2005

I'm fairly new to this and my code is as follows...

<script language="JavaScript>
var oldValue

function focusElement(theElement) {
oldValue = theElement.value;
return;
}
</script>

Then in the HTML, I have

<select size="1" id="ConfCommentSELECT" name="ConfCommentSELECT"
onfocus="return focusPrecedence(this);">
<option value="0"> - </option>
<option value="1">1</option>
<option value="2">2</option>
</select>

The <select> is with a <form><tr><td>, but I don't see how that would make a
difference. I started using the onchange="return blah-blah-blah(this);" and
that worked so I copied that to the onfocus. What I want to do is to
remember the value of the contents of the <select> before the user changes
it, and compare it to the new value.

Onfocus Event For Hyperlinks

Oct 8, 2005

I'm developing a website where a visistor does not have to use the mouse.
All he has to do is use the Tab-key or key-combinations to jump to specific
hyperlinks (containing accesskeys). Next, he presses the Enter key to follow the hyperlink.

My question is: is it possible to change color of the hyperlink when a
hyperlink get the focus. I do not only want to see the dotted line, I want the hyperlink to lighten up.

Remove Value Of Input Element Onfocus

Sep 22, 2005

I've got a default value of some text in an input element when a page loads.
What I'd like to do is have the value disappear when the user clicks in the
input field.

I've figured out I can use:

onclick="this.value=''"

This works fine, however if for some reason the user adds his own input,
then click somewhere else/clicks back, the text has once again been erased.

So I thought of a function like the following, however it does not work:

function removeinput(x) {

if (x == 'Enter items not on standard list here...') {

x = ''

}
}

onclick="removeinput(this.value);"

I've also tried placing this.value inside of single quotes to no avail.

Prevent Onmouseout Overriding Onfocus?

May 8, 2009

I'm trying to use javascript to control a table's td styles. What I want to achieve is to

- apply style A onmouseover
- apply style B onmouseout
- apply style A onfocus

The problem is that the mouseout event overrides the focus event. Also I'd like each element to stay on the focus state until another element gets clicked.

This is my code:

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
function HoverStyle(element) {
document.getElementById(element).style.backgroundImage = "url(images/arrow1.jpg)";

A Onfocus Element.blur Behavior

Mar 11, 2003

i'm sure its been thought of before and i'm sure this is just gunna piss off the people who like to tab through their pages, but i just made a little behavior component file that stops any links from gaining focus on your page.

put this is the style section of your page.

<style type="text/css">
a { behavior: url("hidefocus.htc"); }
</style>

then put the attached file in the same dir. (hidefocus.htc) this is all it is

<public:component>
<public:attach event="onfocus" handler="blurry" />

<script>
function blurry() {
element.blur();
}

</script>
</public:component>

Note: since this behavior is stored in an external file, sometimes one instance of link focus can occur before the htc file can be loaded. if anyone has any tips on fixing that i'd like to hear'em.

Using OnFocus / OnBlur Event On Input Box

Dec 4, 2010

I want to have a function on an event
<span id= "nameheader"> </span>
<form method ="post" action="send.php">
<input
id = "nameinput"
class = "input"
value = "name"
onfocus = "focus();"
onblur = "blur();"
/>

That is when you focus on the input box the value ' name' gets put above the box and when you focus on something else it goes back to the box.
this is my function
focus(){
document.getElementById('nameheader').innerHTML = 'name';
document.getElementById('nameinput').value = '';
}
And I would obviously do the opposite for onblur event.
