Passing Reference To Form From Non-input Field

May 27, 2004

I have a bunch of forms in my page, and want to pass a reference to the current form to a javascript function - when, say, a user clicks on a particular element. Normally, within any type of input field, I'd just add something like this:

onclick="my_function(this.form)"

Then, in my_function( form ) I could refer to form. No worries.

But here's the interesting bit. I also want to run the same function when the user clicks on any <a> tag within a form, like:

<a href="javascript: my_function(this.form)"> ... </a>

Problem is, with this code, the form reference isn't passed to the javascript function. the "this.form" bit doesn't work...

I find this rather curious. So the question is, how do I pass a reference to the current form from within a non input field?

Removing Unwanted Characters From A Passed Value And Passing To Input Field

Oct 20, 2009

I have an email which has some values attached to a link in the email that get passed to an online form on a website when clicked. Problem is the value is a price and the string includes a "$" which I need to remove. I've read through many examples and everyone seems to have an opinion (surprise). One suggests something like this: text2.value=text1.value.replace(/$/g,""); While someone else says its better to remove what you don't want. I am also scratching my head over should I place the value into a hidden field, scrub it then copy that into the proper field? and I imagine the best way would be to run it with an "onload" command instead or a event handler like a keystroke since the field is not typed?

JQuery :: Passing Value To Hidden Form Field?

Apr 2, 2010

I have a function that gets the value of a clicked on <span> like this:

function getSelectedValue(id) {
return $("#" + id).find("dt a span.value").html();
}

and sets the value of a second span like this:

$("#state").html("value: " + getSelectedValue("state"));

When I echo that second span, I get the selected value from the first span. But I need to get that value into a hidden html form field, so I can pass it along with the $_POST array. How do I do this?

Passing Object By Reference?

Jan 3, 2011

My question is commented in the script:

function Love(){
var req = {
ring : 'gold',

[Code]...

console.log(details.ring); // why does this return gold and not silver if req is passed by reference and we already changed its value above and so it's pointing to the same memory position?

JQuery :: Add Fixed Value To Form Input And Send To Separate Form Field

Jun 3, 2011

I've have a function to take the value entered in a form text box, add 50 to it and put the result in another text box.

When I enter 650.5 I get 700.5 exactly how I'd expect. But when I enter -650.5 instead of getting -600.5 I get -650.050 as though it is failing to parse the float due to it being negative. My understanding of parseFloat was that it recognises negative numbers. Is there a nice simple way to get this to work?

Pass User Input From A Form To One Database Field Using Several Form Elements

May 4, 2009

I need to pass user input from a form to one database field. I'm relatively new to JS but the idea I had was to have several form elements and use JS to collect the users input and send all the values through a hidden element. What's happening is the variable names are being sent rather than the values. The code below is only passing to the next page. Limitations: I am editing an intranet site built by a 3rd party so a lot of the files we've been given are encrypted. I cannot change the method to post.

Passing Object Reference As A Parameter?

Apr 1, 2010

I have a function that changes the innerHTML of a DIV element. I want to pass to that function as a parameter a reference to the DIV to be changed. In the example below it works the first time (executed with the body onLoad event). As the subsequent function declaraton is rewritten by the function itself, it can no longer reference the targeted DIV. I tried to pass a string teference and use eval(), but this time it fails the third time it is executed.

Code:
<html>
<head>
<title>Passing Parameters to a Function (with object prameter)</title>
<script type="text/javascript">

I am having a form with two input fields. I want to enter some text in the first input field and then the second field should get the same text.

Control Charcters In Form Input Field

Jul 20, 2005

In a form I have an input field. It's supposed to get input form a
scanning device. Thus, the input might contain special characters (like
the Group Separator in a EAN barcode). Now, I want to manipulate a
little with the input in a javascript, but I'm not able to find the
Group Separator:

input = document.main.input.value;
var a = input.split("");
var i;
for(i=0;i<a.length;i++) {
if(/x1D/.test(a[i])) {
alert("GS");
}
}

This is a snip that parses the input, character by character, and gives
me an alert if the Group Separator (Hex: 1D) is found. But it never
matches, even if I know that the input string contains in. I have a
similar script written in Perl, an that script finds the Group Separtor.

What can I do to find the %"# Group Separator??

Form With DropDown And Input Field - Function Error

Oct 31, 2011

New to working with javascript and I've come up with a function. I have a form with a dropdown and input field:
<form>
<select name="warranty" id="warranty" onChange="doadate()">
<option value="Select">Select</option>
<option value="In Warranty">In Warranty</option>
<option value="Out of Warranty">Out of Warranty</option>
<option value="DOA" selected>DOA</option>
</select>
<input name="doadate" type="text" id="doadate" value="<? echo $doadate; ?>"
size="20" readonly>
</form>

I need the input field to be disabled unless DOA is selected in the select form element. I've started on page load with document.form1.doadate.disabled=true. Then I've put an onChange handler in the select to call the function below:
<script type="text/javascript">
function doadate(){
val = document.form1.warranty.value;
if(val=='DOA'){
document.form1.doadate.disabled=false;
} else{
document.form1.doadate.disabled=true;
}}
</script>
But it's not working, it stays disabled after load even when the DOA is selected in the drop down form field.

Creating And Writing Variable To Form Input Field

I am working on a javascript for my blackberry. I am trying to capture the latitude and longitude of that phone. I am able to get the coordinates in an alert box but am having a little trouble writing it to a form input field.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC
"-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "[URL]">
<html xmlns="[URL]" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
<head><title>GPS Testing</title>
</head><body>
<script type="text/javascript">
if(blackberry.location.GPSSupported){
document.write("Your device supports GPS locating");
blackberry.location.onLocationUpdate(window.alert("Latitude: " + blackberry.location.latitude + " Longitude: " + blackberry.location.longitude));
var lat = blackberry.location.latitude();
var lng = blackberry.location.longitude();
blackberry.location.refreshLocation();
document.write(lat);
}
</script></body></html>

I am only able to test with Blackberry. I was trying to create a couple of variables with the "var lat =" and var lng =".
With this script I get the alert window and when I click ok it writes "Your device supports ...".
