Pass Arguments To "ancestor's" Methods?

Apr 5, 2009

I'm scripting Adobe InDesign via JS. (don't be frightened this post is purely about JS problem)

I've created custom 'Classes' for custom InDesign objects.They all inherit common methods from generic 'Item' class. Now the problem is that most of these methods need acces to the arguments of the child's constructor.

How To Pass Arguments To Function

Jan 9, 2011

I know in different languages (VB.Net,C++,C#) how to pass an argument to function in this code:
<script language="Javascript">
<!-- hide
function openNewWindow() {
popupWin ='[URL]',
'menubar, toolbar, location, directories, status, scrollbars, resizable, dependent, width=640, height=480, left=0, top=0')
} done hiding -->
<a href="javascript:openNewWindow();">return to front page</a>

I need to add several links in my page, so I need to pass indexes from links to main function, so I can open images in specific folder with indexes filenames. For example in vb
Public Sub SubName(ByVal function_text as string)
End Sub

Pass Arguments To Event Handler?

Jun 19, 2009

I'm use prototype quite a lot for ajax calls, but have always used inline onclicks. I'm trying to be less obtrusive by creating event handlers/listeners.I used to do this with the aid of pHp to place arguments into the function (usually via 'while loop'):

<li><a href="#" onclick="dofunction(arg1,arg2);">item 1</a></li>
<li><a href="#" onclick="dofunction(arg1,arg2);">item 2</a></li>
<li><a href="#" onclick="dofunction(arg1,arg2);">item 3</a></li>

How To Pass Arguments Independently Or Using AddEventListener

Sep 10, 2002

I use addEventListener and I cannot (or at least don't know how) pass arguments to the function.

Let's say we have a function:
function warning(arg1, arg2) {alert('Argument 1: ' + arg1 + ', Argument2: ' + arg2 + '.');}

It's possible to have:
onclick="warning('my argument 1', 'my argument 1');" as an html attribut.

But I think it's not posible to do it like this (still the same function):
el.addEventListener("click", warning('my argument 1', 'my argument 1'), false);

So how can I pass arguments to the function?

I would like to display few calendar fields on the same page with different days disabled. I guess that the easiest way to do that would be to let thenoWeekendsOrHolidaysfunction take care of it but in order to do that I need to pass some values to it. How can I do that?

//var disabledDays = '12-15-2011';

VBscript To Write Function That Pass Arguments?

Jan 8, 2011

This example is much simplified as the original script.VBScript is making a value, passes this to Javascript, which puts that value into a div tag.Now, as you see in the VBScript, the value contains a call to a javascript function. It shows perfectly in HTML, but the call can't be made when clicking the link.Is it possible in VBscript to write dynamic hardcoded javascipt function that pass arguments?

<script type="text/vbscript">
Dim m

How To Get Parent Object Of Arguments

Aug 22, 2011

I have a setup where I need to get the function calling a function, which works fine, I just use arguments.callee.caller.Now I need to take it a step further and get the object that the function belongs too.
For example in a onclick="parentObj.someFunction()"
parentObj.someFunction calls some other function. I need a way to know that parentObj was involved, just getting someFunction isn't enough because parentObj has properties that are used in someFunction. To make it more interesting lets say I can't pass any more parameters to someFunction, so I can't pass parentObj into it as an argument.

Use Replace() With Quotes IN The Arguments?

Sep 15, 2011

I'm trying to replace an element's style on the fly like this


var sc = document.getElementById("someElement").innerHTML;
scorecard = sc.replace("class="thisclass"","style="width:"+width+"px;float:left;margin-top:"+topmargin+"px;"");

where width and topmargin are values that I calculated earlier.This works fine in all browsers except IE. The trouble, I'm quite sure, is with the escaped quotes " in the arguments of the replace() function.What this seems to be doing (in IE) is just just returning the same string sc, but with the quotes stripped off of "thisclass".

Trigger A Function From Pop Up Window And Arguments

Aug 14, 2006

I have a main page that opens a pop up window when the user clicks a
link. The pop up window is a menu and when the user clicks the item, it
populates a form input element on the 'parent' window.

My question is: this new populated form element is the value that I use
to change a style.

onchange does not watch this form element because of getelementbyid, so
it doesn't trigger the function needed to change the style. onchange
works fine if I just manually input a value into the text box.

Any other way to fire the function off when the user picks their
selection from the pop-up window? I was thinking I could use
window.opener.function()? But how do I pass the form from the parent
window? From the pop up window, I don't use this.form, what do I
use?something like window.opener.form[0] ?
