Use Data Found In Form To Populate Select Options?

Apr 3, 2011

I have a page that runs a lot of calculations.The math is computed on the fly using java scriptwhen all the calcs are in, prior to form submission the user needs to evaluate which numbers they prefer, and from there, once they select them, the form, based on those choices, will perform one last calclets say we have 3 result fields

r1 = 2000
r2 = 3000
r3 = 4000

what i want to do is have a select field be able to display those values at the bottom of the page;for example

<select name="s1">
<option value=[field contents of r1 above]>[field contents of r1 above]</option>
<option value=[field contents of r2 above]>[field contents of r2 above]</option>

[code]....

JQuery :: Select Dropdown With Many Options, Most Efficient Way To Populate?

Jun 16, 2010

I am populating a number of Select boxes on the server-side with a large number of options. I'd like to get the response size down without taxing the client browser too much. What do you think is the most efficient way to approach this problem?

Here are some considerations: The option text/values do not change very often, but could potentially change in the future. The page that holds the select boxes should never be cached, there are other aspects of the page that need to remain fresh. Firebug with YSlow is saying that the primed cache size of the page is 300Kb with all the select dropdowns and options, if I remove the options, the primed cache size of the page is 80Kb. I am considering breaking out the text/value pairs for the select boxes into a separate file that is cache-able calling it "valueTextPairs.js" and referencing it with a query string and some sort of server-generated MD5 hash of the data, so that if any of the values change, the client's cached version will be replaced by the latest version. Like so:[URL]...

Provided I do this, I anticipate that the primed cache size of the page will be reduced down to 80Kb (which I like) -- however, before I take the plunge, I am curious what you all think the performance effect will be?

I know the number of bytes on the wire will be reduced, but will this put a lot of additional pressure on the client's browser because I'd need to traverse the name/value pairs and add the options to the select boxes dynamically on the client end? If it seems reasonable to do this, what jQuery approach would be the most efficient? $('#selectId').html(options) with options = one big string? Adding each child option to the select in a loop? Something else?

Some client end folks are using IE6 so I am trying to tax the browser as little as possible, while also reducing the size of each request, trying to find a happy medium..

JQuery :: Populate Select Form Field?

Jan 26, 2010

I have a form where a user may select a box from above which will query the database and autofill in the fields. This works properly for all of my input text fields but I have a select box where a user selects their state that I am unable to get to properly populate.

The select box is populated on page load in the following format....

<select id="state" name="state">
<option value="1">ALABAMA</option>
<option value="2">ALASKA</option>
</select>

[Code]....

Everything populates correctly except where I try to set the val on the state select field. It does not change at all. I need it to display the statename with the value of the state (number).

JQuery :: Parse Returned Data And Populate HTML Form Elements

Jun 1, 2011

I am developing a web application in java (jsp's and servlets). For the project I am working on I will need to develop an html data entry screen and the code to load data into the screen, and then save the data back to the back-end database.

How to do the following:
Read the data out of the database (JDBC, no problem) in a servlet.
Put the data into the appropriate form for returning to the data entry screen, which will be a jsp. (Is JSON the right choice for passing the data from the servlet to the jsp?)

In the jsp, parse the returned data and populate the HTML form elements (text fields and combo boxes). When a button is clicked, pull the data out of the form elements and return to a servlet for saving back in the database.

JQuery :: Popup Wizard To Select A Value To Populate Back Into A Form?

Aug 29, 2011

I want to make a popup helps the user select a value for an input field in a html form.

For example, if the field is for a customer code - the user can either type in the customer code directly, or use the popup to search on available customer codes using various criteria and finally select the customer code he or she wants to use, and have that customer code populate back into the original input field.

I have been looking around the various components in jquery but can't quite see how to do this.

Form For Users To Create Events - Populate Select Fields

Jun 3, 2009

I'd like some direction on creating a small piece of Javascript that will populate my <select> boxes. Basically, I have a form for users to create events, with a start time and an end time. (These are the two select boxes). For example:

Code:
<select id="startTime">
<option value="12:00AM">12:00AM</option>
<option value="12:15AM">12:15AM</option>
etc.....
</select>

What I am trying to do is:
1) Have times populated in 15 minute incrementals from 12:00AM to 11:45PM
2) Have some type of "error checking" available to where the End Time must be after the start time. It would be nice for the script to automatically change the end time field to a time that is after the start time.

Get Form Data Befor Submit - Populate A Simple Table With A Few Text Boxes In There

Oct 25, 2011

Im working on a backend panel where i populate a simple table with a few text boxes in there so they can update some values. I also have at the end of every row in the table an Edit, Delete & Save button. When i hit the save button i would like to update that entry in the database.

My Problem is that i need a value from the table before hitting a submit button, and the element names are dynamically created meaning ill likely need a variable sent from php to javascript and once i have the value in javascript ill need to send it back over to the php to manipulate and send to the server.

From wat i can gather using 'document.form.element.value' is the best way to go, hence why i posted this in javascript when most of my code is php.

AJAX :: Populate The Options Of 5 Dropdown Boxes?

Jan 16, 2011

I have a product select page that is really slow to use because 6 dropdowns must be populated and the page reloads after selecting each box, to get the options for the next box.

I want to speed it up as follows:

1) User selects one of 50 products from a dropdown list.

2) Page reloads, and all the possible options for the remaining 5 dropdown boxes are now populated (ie. list options all stored client side)

3) User can freely input the remaining 5 dropdowns without the page reloading.

Popup Window With Options To Populate Textbox

Jan 23, 2010

Actually this is the same like the pop-up calendar but the only difference is I don't want numbers, I need a list of options so user can choose and when they select, it will transfer to the textbox right away like the calendar. I have a form and trying to use a pop-up window to select an option then transfer the option selected to show on the textbox. I have 10 textboxes and all of them has a "Select" button to pop-up the option list. BTW, the "SELECT" button will populate the same option list.

Here is my html code:
<select id="droplist" name="droplist" size="1" >
<option>Click to select...</option>
<?php foreach ($designation_list as $descode => $prompt) : ?>
<option <?php echo helper_selected($prompt == $form['droplist']); ?> value="<?php echo $prompt; ?>" style="width:500"><?php safeEcho($prompt); ?> </option>
<?php endforeach; ?>
</select>

Below is array:
<?php
$designation_list = array(
"00111" =>"Aloha of the Pacific/Transfer Assistance Program for High Income Students",
"71122" =>"Aloha",
"71231" =>"Free Housing Information",
"71232" => "Drama Queen and King",
"98765" => "Aloha Boy Home of the Land",
"12345" => "Aloha Home",
);
I wanted to use the option list over and over again for the 10 textboxes. Is that possible?

Below is my sample code but didn't work.
//javascript
var testpopup5 = new PopupWindow("testdiv5");
testpopup5.offsetX=-20;
testpopup5.offsetY=20;
testpopup5.autoHide();
var testpopup5input=null; .....
I get this code from somewhere else but it doesn't work on me.

Jquery :: Populate A List From A PHP Loop That Writes HTML Options From A Db?

Jul 5, 2011

The following PHP code populates a dropdown list of Projects. I would like to be able to click on a Project Name in the list and have its corresponding list of Characters appear beside it. How can I tie jquery into this as it's running? All the jquery examples I see are for hard coded HTML data instead of a PHP loop grabbing from a database.

Code:
//creates the Project dropdown list
while ($proj = mysql_fetch_array($project)){
$id_proj = $proj['projid'];
$name_proj = htmlspecialchars($proj['projectName']);

[Code]....

I don't care if it's a clickable list of anchors instead of a dropdown. Also, I don't care whether people have javascript enabled as this is for my personal use.

Expected '' Error - Select Menu 'Customer' Which Triggers A 3 JS Functions - To Populate 2 Extra Select Menus

Aug 18, 2010

I'm having problems with a Javascript 'Lookup' function.

Basically, I have a select menu 'Customer' which triggers a 3 JS functions, to populate 2 extra select menus.

Using IE Developer Tools, during debugging, I get this error: Expected ';' Error

This relates to either: eval(ajax_CustContact[index].response); OR eval(ajax_CostCentreContact[index].response); (it's a bit random, as sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't)

I have tried changing the 'custid' to 'custname' to check whether it was an integer causing the problem, but had the same problem.

JQuery :: DOM Tag Not Found When Select String Includes A Decimal Point / Fix It?

Aug 30, 2010

I am doing some maintenance work on a classic asp web page that displays product information. I am changing how the page looks up the available quantities for the various sizes. The old method used several SQL queries to determine the number of sizes and available quantities and then used those results to build a table on the fly on the page.

My modification consists of a web service that consolidates product size availability from three different sources and delivers the data via an XML formatted return. I have also added DOM tags in the table that is built on the fly that identify each entry with the product id and size. So, for a product that has an ID of "P12345" and a size of "XXL," that corresponding cell in the table gets an id tag of "P12345_XXL."

My jQuery update statements worked just fine using this approach until the sizes included decimal numbers. My example for this is shoe sizes. A size represented by an integer (6,7,8,...,15,16,17, etc.) works fine. A half-size represented by a decimal (6.5, 7.5, 8.5,...) does not. Even though the period is contained within a string value, jQuery doesn't seem to be able to match the value with an id tag - and yes, I have verified that the two (the string that I am giving to the jquery select and the actual tag) do indeed match.

So far, the only work-around that I have come up with is to multiply numeric sizes by 10 and parse as integer values. Is this a "known issue" and is there a more elegant solution topursue?

Form Emailing All Data Besides Select Value

Mar 19, 2010

I have a website [url] that I'm working on. The website has some javascript usage and some jquery (via a shadowbox mod). If you select the form - Free Quote or Schedule Service - the form pops up and you can fill out the information. You get the quote and then you can choose to schedule service by selecting that button.

For some reason the value that is in the drop down doesn't get emailed and I have no idea why. Let me know if I did a crap job of explaining or if some code needs to be posted. I figured one could just access the source of the website and tell but I dunno.

If you need to go directly to the form code you can use the url: [url]

Pull Data From One Array And Use It To Populate New One?

Oct 9, 2011

I'm having some issues with my code. I'm trying to pull data from one array and use it to populate a new array. With my initial array I can get the results of certain properties using 'servos[i].application'. Any servos that share their value with that of my filter box should be put into a new array called matches and allow me to referance them in a similar way 'matches[i].application'. At the minute I've got my code to populate the new matches array, i'm pretty sure, but when I try to get data out of the second array using the 'matches[i].application' style of query it says its undefined. I already have an array called servos which is full of 49 different servo objects. I've added the function containing this code and commented it too.

PHP Code:
function dataPull(){
//create servoStore to build page for display
//var servoStore="";
// search and get servos meeting application filter settings
// create new array called matches with set properties
var matches = new Array("application", "sclass", "type", "motor", "bearings", "gears", "modelno", "name", "speed", "v3_3", "v4_8", "v6_0", "v7_2", "weight", "dimensions", "opvoltage", "image", "description"); .....
