How to use getElementById to get the elements in a form

Posted By: Syed Shakeer Hussain     Posted Date: June 20, 2010    Points: 2   Category :JavaScript/VBScript
There are many ways of accessing form elements, of which the easiest is by using the cross-browser W3C DOM document.getElementById method. Before we learn more about this method, it would be useful to know something about the Document Object Model (DOM), the concept of HTML nodes or elements, and the concept of containers.

Each time you load an HTML page, the web browser generates an internal representation of the page in the form of an inverted tree structure. Let us look at a simple form. We will use this form later to demonstrate the use of the getElementById method.

Command Management: Use Design Patterns to Simplify the Relationship Between Menus and Form Elements


In Windows Forms applications, similar commands, such as those in a menu and their counterparts on a toolbar, are not automatically related. They don't fire the same event or run the same handler routine. Yet code that allows the same or similar user commands to fire the same code simplifies development.This article describes the principles of command management and why it's important to have functional commands that are not exclusive to any one UI element. In order to provide an MFC-like command management infrastructure, a design pattern is developed and applied as a series of C# classes.

(MVC & jQuery) Can't Add Datepicker to List of form elements



I'm still relatively new to jQuery (mostly finding things I need online and making simple changes). I have the following piece of code in my MVC app to render a partial view

<% int i = 0;
   foreach (var item in Model) { %>

        <td valign="top" style="border: none;">
            <%= Html.TextBox("MeetingList[" + i + "].Start", String.Format("{0:MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm}", item.Start), new { @style = "width: 120px;", @class="start" })%>
        <td valign="top" style="border: none;">
            <%= Html.TextBox("MeetingList[" + i + "].End", String.Format("{0:MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm}", item.End), new { @style = "width: 120px;", @class = "end" })%>

And I've tried the following to grab each of those 'MeetingList[...' items and add a datepicker to them,

        $(".start").each(function(index) {
            var $temp = $('#MeetingList[' + index + '].Start');
}); });


form elements in wrong order on custon newform.aspx

In SharePoint Designer 2007, I created a new .aspx page in which I put SharePoint Control > Custom List Form using the default content type for my for my list.  However, in the UI, when I try to create a new list item, the form fields are not rendering in the correct order.  I double checked by column ordering of the content type and it is correct.  Why is my new custom form not using the same column order?  I shouldn't have to get into the html and reorder things should I?

How to deal with the elements in Claims Based form authentication mMembership?


We are migrating from SharePoint 2007 to 2010. We used to use Forms Authentication for our portal and have a custom login.aspx page for authentication. In this login.aspx page code, it detects new user and will automatically create a user in the membership provider.

However, in SharePoint 2010, System.Web.Security.Membership always points to the defaultProvider="i" which is the default membership provider that claims authentication provider forces.

So we are facing a big problem about how to create a user in the membership provider in the new login.aspx page. How can we handle this situation?

form feild hints are not displaying for textboxses inside create user wizard?



I'm using following JS code to display input hint box besides the textbox whenever that asp.net textbox receives focus. 

I'm doing this for a registration form and all of the textboxes are inside the asp.net create user wizard control.

<script type="text/javascript">
function addLoadEvent(func) {
  var oldonload = window.onload;
  if (typeof window.onload != 'function') {
    window.onload = func;
  } else {
    window.onload = function() {

function prepareInputsForHints() {
	var inputs = document.getElementsByTagName("TextBox");
	for (var i=0; i<inputs.length; i++){
		// test to see if the hint span exists first
		if (inputs[i].parentNode.getElementsByTagName("span")[0]) {
			// the span exists!  on focus, show the hint
			inputs[i].onfocus = function () {
				this.parentNode.getElementsByTagName("span")[0].style.display = "inline";
			// when the cursor moves away from the field, hide the hint
			inputs[i].onblur = function () {
				this.parentNode.getElementsByTagName("span")[0].style.display = "none";

Validate form input - Japanese


 I've searched for several hours and haven't come up with a reference - or even many discussions - of how to go about validating Japanese names, addresses, etc. When I lived in Japan websites, atm's etc. required such info to be entered with the roman alphabet but I've seen some websites that are allowing Kanji/Hiragana/Katakana. I haven't tested many of them for validation but one that I did test (after looking at the page source and discovering no client-side validation) allowed me to put this in the name field: J*=123*go^ Neat!

Any pointers/references? Thanks

Commerce with ASP.NET: Leverage the Authentication and Form Validation Features of ASP.NET to Bolste


If you're planning to build an e-commerce site, you'll be pleased to see that ASP.NET makes it easier than ever. Existing controls can be used and extended to add a great deal more functionality than you might expect. In this article, forms-based authentication is used to verify the identity of users and make certain areas of the site, such as the check-out page, inaccessible to unauthorized users. The power and flexibility of validation controls are demonstrated using the CustomValidator control to connect to a Web Service that verifies addresses. A shopping cart is then implemented in ASP.NET using the DataGrid, and finally, credit card authorization and billing are performed.
