I would like to be able to be able to generate a row of input fileds type 'P' - records Parent and when they are complete I would like to add a further empty row of the 'P' type fields at the press of a button.

When any 'P' row is complete I would like to press a different button to add a row of input fields type 'C' - Child records on completion of that row add further rows of either 'P' or 'C' type pressing the appropriate button.

I have found a solution written in javascript - I can't find it now - that allowed me to to add rows but only for 1 table. There was also a delete function as well I have tried to adapt that script but I am not making any headway

Can anybody point me at a template or a source of code that I could use or adapt.

Thank you for reading this

John

it would be great top split your question and have appropriate help for all your needs.

a good start (I hope) :
$(document).ready(function() {

    $("#b1").click(function() {
        $("#mytable").append('<tr><td><input value="P" /></td><td><input value="P" /></td><td><input value="P" /></td></tr>');
    })

    $("#b2").click(function() {
        $("#mytable").append('<tr><td><input value="C" /></td><td><input value="C" /></td><td><input value="C" /></td></tr>');
    })
            
}) 

Open in new window


html :
<input type="button" id="b1" value="P" /><input type="button" id="b2" value="C" />
<table id="mytable"></table>

Open in new window

Hi Leakim,

That is a great start for me thank you I can read this and it's is giving me ideas

so should I break down the question maybe? I did it as the big thing because if I created seperate questions I would have to try to manage diverse answers maybe. It may be that I have entered all my concerns in one question but hey, don't ask ....

Thank you

John

Leakim,

Thanks for the link to jsfiddle looks an interesting site.

As you know this works marvelllously on jsfiddle,

However I copied it into my netbeans 6.8 IDE and the buttons are displayed but I get no response from them

I have done something wrong could you please have a look at the code and spot my error

I also get an error indicator at row 23 the table definition row and the text I get is

"the tag content is unresolved, expected one of <TFOOT>, <THEAD>, <COL>, <CAPTION>, <COLGROUP>"

Thank you very much

John
