[program-java] Re: OT - Javascript question?

I want the cursor not to keep jumping to the end of the edit field after
each character I type, when I'm trying to insert a word or more than 1
character in the middle of the edit field. 

 

Thanks, 

Pamela

Hi,

If you tell me a little more about what you are trying to do, it might help.
From what you say, I'm guessing that the reason this is happening is not
because of the script, but because the script may be called by the on change
event. The on change event makes the script fire anytime the edit field
changes. The edit field changes anytime you type or remove a character. What
do you want to happen?

 

Thanks.

 

Jim

I was pointed to the below JS as contributing to my problem, which I will
try to explain. 

 

When I need to edit or update a field by inserting a word in the middle of
the field, every time I enter 1 character the cursor jumps to the end of the
field and I have to keep moving the cursor back to the insertion point in
the middle of the field I'm editing. 

I have to keep doing this for every character I want to enter. 

I don't know JS that well, but any suggestions would be appreciated. 

I will look into Roger's suggestion of googling "sigte all experts" (don't
understand that google search exactly), 

and getting a copy of JS for dummies. 

 

Thanks, 

Pamela 

 

----- JavaScript code ----- 

 

function uppercase(textField)

{

if (textField.value == '')

{

return;

}

var val = textField.value;

var upper = '';

var len = val.length;

for (var i = 0; i < len; i++)

{

if (/^[a-z]{1}$/.test(val.charAt(i)))

{

upper += val.charAt(i).toUpperCase();

}

else

{

upper += val.charAt(i);

}

}

textField.value = upper;

}

Javascript please contact me offline?
