asked on

select option not showing

Hi,

There is a select option within a <td> but it's not showing for some reason. I don't see any errors in my code (my IDE) and when I copy and paste the <select> before the body tag it shows up. What's wrong?

Thanks,

you mean this part? there is nothing wrong here and I can see it..
<table align="center" cellpadding="3" style="width: 97%; border:1px solid red">
<tr>
   <td style="width: 50%; padding-bottom: 3px; height: 23px;">&nbsp;* Which class would you like to attend?</td>
   <td style="width: 50%; padding-bottom: 3px; height: 23px;">
      <select name="Which_Class" style="width:250px; height:20px;">
         <option>-- Select Class Date --</option>
         <option value="January 24, 2011" selected>January 2011 - Classes Start Jan 24
         </option>
      </select></td>
</tr>
...
</table>

Open in new window

it is because of this

      <script language="JavaScript" src="http://tutorialref.com/mhms/scripts/init.js"></script>
I guess this function is responsible for that
/**
************************************
* For btgapp.php
************************************/
function checkDates(){
   var dateDiff
   var ddDate
   var today = new Date()
   var oneDay=1000*60*60*24
   var dateDD = document.btgapp.Which_Class
   var numOpts = dateDD.options.length
   //Remove dropdown options with dates less than 4 weeks out
   for (var i=numOpts-1;i>=0; i--) {
      ddDate = new Date(dateDD.options[i].value)
      dateDiff = (ddDate.getTime()-today.getTime())/oneDay/7
      //alert("dateDiff is: "+dateDiff)
      if (dateDiff < 4){
         dateDD.remove(i)
      }
   }
}

Open in new window

//Remove dropdown options with dates less than 4 weeks out

HainKurt let's my suggestion look dumb - I overlooked the JS file.

Hi,

I appreciated HainKurt's responses. His response ( 34873037) was the solution he offered but that wasn't the answer. I know HainKurt's responded to other postings I've posted so I do appreciated his answers. It just wasn't the correct answer. Should I offer points to him for his effort? I can split the points.

computino's response (34873055) was the closest. Though the answer wasn't completely correct. The problem was the white spaces in the value of the option and not the option innerHTML text. That's why awarded him the 500 points.

I'm thinking that JS and/or jQuery values may need to be urlencoded (if there are whitespaces) but I'm not certain.

Split the points for the effort I think. Don't know how to do that on my end though. Thanks fellows. I appreciated your responses. =)
Thank you.
