Capture large text return from Javascript function

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I have a Javascript function that writes a large scale of text into a div for now, but then I need to capture the text and use it in code behind. I tried to use hidden field but it has size limit so it didn't work.  The text is shown in the page, but when I view source, there is no text in the div so I couldn't use code behind to read the text from the div even though runat is server because the text is always empty. Any suggestions? Thanks!!!

>>>How to use javascript function in aspx file?



I have a file util.js and there some funtions in same file.

For example functions name are keyUp, keyDown, isNumeric, isAlphaNumeric

I have used these functions in aspx code behind in a textbox to restrict user that he may not be able to input any special character.

Before, I used the code directly in aspx file but I have do it for different textboxes therefore to avoid much coding in aspx file I created util.js and put all code in this file but how to use these particular functions in aspx file I couldn't find the way.

Anyone have idea. Do share with me.

I used the reference like this:


' Font-Names="Verdana" Font-Size="8pt" Onkeyup= "keyUp(event.keyCode)" Onkeydown="return isAlphaNumeric(event.keyCode);" onpaste="return false;">

Crystal Reports can grow fields with large amounts of text layout problem


A can grow field in the details section of a crystal report may have so much text that the section will be larger than the remaining space available on the page (the space below the previous record).  The section has vertical lines on it with Extend to bottom of section when printing set to true.  The section starts on a new page (and may continue on the following one).  I want it to start on the page where the last record was laid out, and continue to the new page without leaving a gap with vertical lines on it.  I'm using Crystal Reports 9 and I can't work out how to do it. Has anyone got a solution?

SharePoint Blog - Admin web part - newBlogPostOnClient JavaScript function


In the Admin Links web part in a default blog site, there are several links, the last one of which launches Microsoft Word and allows you to manage your posts from the Word blog template.  Cool feature.  But that web part is not configurable and I can't figure out how to duplicate that functionality.  It appears to have 3 GUIDS that are part of the function, part of the last parameter looks like the Posts list GUID, but it is concatenated with another GUID.   I want to either create my own web part or modify the XSL of the page to call the function, but I'm not sure what those other GUID parameters are.  Does anyone know?  The last one seems to be two of the separated by the # character.


Mission Impossible? Use Javascript to Disable a Multi-Line Rich Text Field


Hey Community,

Here's a tough one that I have struggled with and so far have not been able to find an answer for - how do you use Javascript to disable a multi-line rich text field.  I have customized a SP Edit form by adding a CEWP.  In the CEWP I have added the Javascript below (only a partial code sample provided) to disable several fields in the form.  The code works fine for single line text fields but it does not work for multi-line rich text fields.  Any suggestions?

<script language="javascript">
//This runs the function when the form first loads

//This locks the fields the users should not modify
function lockFields()
  var theInputTFTitle = getTagFromIdentifierAndTitle("Input","TextField","Title");
  theInputTFTitle.readOnly = true;
  theInputTFTitle.style.color = 'gray';
  //alert(" Value: " + theInputTFTitle.value);//for testing

   var theInputDDLReplyStatus = getTagFromIdentifierAndTitle("select","DropDownChoice","Reply Status");
  theInputDDLReplyStatus.disabled = true;
  //alert(" Value: " + theInputDDLReplyStatus.value);//for testing

  var theInpu

Function to return number


I am trying to create a function that  return the number part within / / from a url if exist:

For exmple:

http://www.mydomain.com/News/Features/627362/Orange_revamps_business_website.aspx SHOULD RETURN "\627362\"

Run a javascript function after UpdatePanel.Update()


I thought that adding the javascript within the ContentTemplate would cause it to run every time the UpdatePanel was updated.  For example, I would assume that for the following:

<atlas:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanel1" runat="server" Mode="Conditional" >
        Hello from inside the update panel!!!!
        <asp:Button ID="foo" runat="server" OnClick="foo_Click" Text="Click me to postback!" />
        <script type="text/javascript">alert('Javascript, baby!');</script>

 would cause the function alert() to run every time the UpdatePanel returns from the button click.  This is not the case, however.

How do I do this?  My update panel contains a scrolling Div and I

Javascript error on Rich Text Editor of CEWP

Hi all,

I have a problem that is really bugging and I wasn't able to find any workaround all day. I'll try to give as many details as possible:

I'm maintaining several site collections on a single server and this problem occurs only on one of the site collections. However it occurs on all subsites of this collection, it occurs on old pages and newly created pages, even on pages containing only one empty CEWP.

When I'm pressing the button for Rich Text Editor of CEWP I get the following error:

Message: Invalid argument.
Line: 5740
Char: 2
Code: 0
URI: http://www.dyrlaegeankenaevn.dk/_layouts/1030/HtmlEditor.js

I've tracked down the error with IE developer tools and I found that the error pops up in HtmlEditor.js at

Scalar Function Variable length return value

Would like to write a Scalar Function that returns a variable length string of spaces. Length being determined by an input parameter (int) Maybe I am missing the obvious but it seems impossible because you have to declare the size  of the varchar return variable I know there is a performance hit using scalar functions but we are generating a view that emulates an old fixed file format with lots of unused fields. So it will make the resultant view readable. So I am looking to do select goodfield1,fnSpace(5) as Unusedfield1,goodfield2,fnSpace(10)... from MyView thanks Bob
