Hello,

I am attempting to use the referenced script but I have two fields I need to populate.  Is there a way that I can make it pass the numbers into the currently active field?

Thanks

Try this in all other buttons

<td><input type="Button" value="0" style="font-size:25px;" onclick = "addme(this);"></td>

function addme(val){

var salesval=document.numPad.sales_associate.value;

if(salesval=='') salesval=0;
 salesval=salesval+this.value;

  return true;
}

Hope this helps

That's what I have already...The issue is that there are two input fields I need to populate.  Maybe what I need is something that changes which field the onlick="..." points at basd on where the cursor is.  Does that make sense?

So let me clarify, you need onclick of the number to populate the sales_assocaite and the pin values, If thats the case then try this

function addme(val){

var salesval=document.numPad.sales_associate.value;
var pinval=document.numPad.pin.value;

if(salesval=='') salesval=0;
if(pinval=='') pinval=0;

 salesval=salesval+this.value;
 pinval=pinval+this.value

document.numPad.sales_associate.value = salesval;
document.numPad.pin.value =pinval;

  return true;
}


Hope this helps

Sortof.

Let me provide a bit more information; perhaps I was too vague.  I have a web-based time clock system with a touchscreen monitor.  The user needs to be able to use the javascript keypad to enter their ID (sales_associate) and then "tab" to the next field by touching it on the screen and enter their PIN.  I am attempting to create an on-screen keyboard (numeric only) as there will be no physical keyboard attached to the computer.  Does that clarify the goal?

How about this.

It should work on all browsers

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<TITLE> New Document </TITLE>
<script type="text/javascript">
var currentField="sales_associate";
window.onload=function() {
  focusIt()
}

function focusIt() {
  document.forms[0].elements[currentField].focus(); 
}
function addme(button){
  button.form.elements[currentField].value+=button.value;
}
function deleteme(button){ // use onclick="deleteme(this)
  val = button.form.elements[currentField].value;
  if (val.length>0) val = val.substring(0,val.length-1);
  button.form.elements[currentField].value=val;
}
</script>

</HEAD>

<BODY>
<form action="" method="post" class="" name="numPad">
<table cellpadding="2" cellspacing="2" border="0">
<tr>
     <td colspan="3" align="center"><input type="text" name="sales_associate" onfocus="currentField=this.name" size="20"></td>
