Hello folks !!

I just want a source code to create text boxes dynamically on click.

consider an example to create 10 text boxes on click of a button.

The prob.. I am facing across is, as soon as i click the btn, js rewrites the whole document and after the rewrite, the btn is not visible but only the text boxes.

suggest me a solution to retain the btn and create more text boxes on the same doc.

I am currently writing -

<html>
<head>
<script language="javascript">
       function gen()
       {
             for (t=0;t<10;t++)
             {
                   document.write("<input type='text' name='textbX" + t + "'>");
             }
       }
</script>
</head>
<body>

    <input type="button" onClick="gen();">

</body></html>

Something like this?


<html>
<head>
<script language="javascript">
       function gen()
       {
             for (t=0;t<10;t++)
             {
                        textSection.innerHTML= textSection.innerHTML + "<input type='text' name='textbX" + t + "'><br>";
                   
             }
       }
</script>
</head>
<body>

    <input type="button" onClick="gen();">
      
      <div id='textSection'></div>

</body></html>

hmmm.... not sure if document.body is right come to think of it.

document.getElementsByTagName('body')[0].appendChild(obj); might work better

create a check box called "cbxSelectAll"
and on the check box add the following attribute

 onclick=javascript:checkAll(this.form)

<script type="text/javascript">
function checkAll(form)
{
  var thisNumRowsSelected = 0;
  var isChecked = document.all.cbxSelectAll.checked;
  for (var i=0; i < form.elements.length; i++)
  {
    if (form.elements[i].name.indexOf('_ctl') > -1)
    {
      var curElement = form.elements[i];
      if (isChecked)
      {
        curElement.checked = true;
        thisNumRowsSelected = thisNumRowsSelected + 1;
        while (!(curElement.tagName == "TR"))
        {
          curElement = curElement.parentElement;
        }
        if (form.elements[i].name != "cbxSelectAll")
        {
          curElement.style.backgroundColor = "gold";
        }
      }
      else
      {
        curElement.checked = false;
        while (!(curElement.tagName == "TR"))
        {
          curElement = curElement.parentElement;
        }
        if (form.elements[i].name != "cbxSelectAll")
        {
          curElement.style.backgroundColor = "#eeeeee";
        }
      }
    }
  }
  rowsSelected = thisNumRowsSelected;
}
            </script>
