      Guidelines and Netiquette   03/28/2017

      Posting Problems:   Having problems posting your topic? Read through this: To join, you agree to our terms and conditions and fill out and submit a registration form. An activation email will be sent to your email adress, so you'll need to verify your account. After that the account has to be validated by one of the moderators. This will mean that it can take up to a day to be activated. A couple of things to remember to ensure approval: Don't use an email address in one of those $2 four character .com domains eg. xyds.com. These will be deleted and the domain added to the banned list. Don't use an email address that is within a domain with a bad reputation for spam. A Google search is run on every email address and email domain. Don't sign up with an email address that doesn't exist, doesn't work or requires the sender to answer a quiz before their email can get to you. Put your country and or state and city in the signup form. Blank forms will go to the botton of the "to do" list. And make sure that your email address and your country match, saying you're from Alabama and using a .ru email address is not going to get you activated. After a membership is activated the first few posts will be monitored. Posting spam or unapproved topics described in the agreement results in an immediate ban. The email provider and the IP addresses associated with the account will be banned and all posts will be deleted. These strict measures have been deemed necessary to hinder spam. Sorry for any inconvenience this causes, but it's not liable to change. If, after reading this, you still can't post and don't understand why, contact one of the Moderators listed here.   Topic Guidelines   Including the following information can expedite an accurate response from board members: Must be a Specific Problem or Question related to web design and development Include Code in Question (wrap with   for small blocks of code and for longer blocks   ) Include Code Author Include Extra Notes/Modifications/Attempts Include web link to page/file when possible Content Guidelines   You may not post, upload, link to, or email any Content that contains, promotes, gives instruction about, or provides prohibited Content. Prohibited Content includes any Content that breaks any local, state, county, national or international law. Prohibited Content also includes: No direct or indirect advertising or websites, forums, products, services No hijacking of posts (do not post your question in someone elses) Content that infringes upon any rights [ex.

To get the full list, click "BB Code Help" underneath the clickable smilie face menu. Use   for small snippets of code Use   for lengthy snippets of code Use   if your snippet is HTML (optional) Use   if your snippet is SQL (optional) Rules of Conduct   Be nice. There's no need for calling someone stupid if they ask an 'easy' question. Keep your avatars and signatures absolutely child friendly. We have a younger audience on this forum. Keep your language appropriate for the same reason above. Do not PM moderators for help on the forum. Post on the topic, or create a new one.   Spam:   Recently, as you have all without doubt noticed, we have had lots of spam and advertisement on the forum. Therefore, we'd like to alert you as to what to do when you have found any of the aforementioned annoying messages: it. Immediately. Give a clear reason, please, if the advertising is not evident. DO NOT POST! Report, let the post stay as is, and we will get to it, meanwhile if you continue to post as normal in the other threads, it won't be on the top so long. Refrain from PMing the member. This won't help at all, as they are most likely spambots anyway. Thank you.       Images in signatures:   After thinking of users on dial-up, we have decided to enforce the following rules regarding signatures. Please pay heed to them. Respecting these rules is respecting the members on this forum with dial-up. Signature rules: No animated images AT ALL. No matter the amount of animation. Maximum image widthxheight: 300x150 Maximum image (file) size: 15kb Use calm colors. Do not use highly contrasting images in your signature, as this can get really annoying when seeing several posts from one member in the same thread. The same prohibited content goes for images as for posts. Lastly, use common sense. No lengthy signatures please. Save us some scrolling. Thank you.       Links in signatures:   Please understand that w3schools.com only exists because of voluntary work and is barely supported by the advertising littered throughout the tutorials and the forum. So, please, stop advertising other sites. DO not post links that drive traffic away from the w3schools domain - especially to a site that offers similar if not identical information. Please help support the site by keeping individuals on it. Thank you. Here are some guidelines as to what you can put in your signature: w3schools links --> allowed w3.org links --> allowed browser links --> allowed html editor links --> allowed personal sites --> allowed tutorial sites competing with w3schools --> NOT allowed sites completely irrelevant to webprogramming and this forum --> NOT allowed   Thanks for understanding, and for taking the time to read this. ~W3Schools Modstaff~

css does not work with javascript in IE

Recommended Posts

I am currently using the CSS width: 100% property in my drop down list in my classic asp page. My JavaScript call this asp page and does the work from there. My box displays fine in Google chrome amd wraps the text to the box but the css is ignored in Internet Explorer and runs off the page. Any ideas how to work around this?

One problem is that your ASP page is returning a complete HTML document. You don't put one HTML document inside another one, it should only return a snippet of HTML that you'll add to the parent page.

.wrapword{white-space: -moz-pre-wrap !important; /* Mozilla, since 1999 */white-space: -pre-wrap; /* Opera 4-6 */white-space: -o-pre-wrap; /* Opera 7 */white-space: pre-wrap; /* css-3 */word-wrap: break-word; /* Internet Explorer 5.5+ */white-space: -webkit-pre-wrap; /* Newer versions of Chrome/Safari*/word-break: break-all;white-space: normal;width: 160%;;}

First, it doesn't really do anything to duplicate all of those properties, it's going to use the last value. It's going to use "normal" for white-space and "break-all" for word-break. Second, giving an element a width greater than 100% is going to cause part of that element to be hidden, part of the text is also going to be hidden. Third, text inside select options does not wrap at all, the select box will match the size of the longest option unless you restrict it to be smaller, and if so the text will just get cut off. If you want text to wrap then you need to use a fake select box which is made from other elements like divs. jQuery has several plugins to replace standard select elements with more flexible things, for example.

Any chance you could show an example of the wrapping. I had to do the 160% because I had to put the box -px to make it extend to the left of the box so I could only use 160% to make it go to the right. it still cuts it off if I use lets say 60%.

It's a third-party library. There are several other plugins like that one. That one in particular doesn't say it requires any certain version of jQuery, so I imagine the most recent version would work.

So I don't need any software installed on my server to use it? do I just put a link into the code to a library?

You don't need to install software. It's a Javascript file that you link like any other Javascript file. There are places that host it where you can link to it on their server, or you can upload a copy of it to your server and link to it there. If you want to use it you should probably learn about it.http://learn.jquery.com/about-jquery/

Yeah, the plugin would replace the select element with a widget that works similarly but has more features available to it.

You can paste code directly in your post, there's a code box that will highlight it.What exactly happens when you run that? Is the code you showed there the response to an ajax request? If so, Javascript code doesn't automatically execute if you use something like innerHTML to add it to the page.

yes it displays as a dropdown of results in an Ajax search box. looks the same as when I started but is not text wrapping yet. I believe I have the jquery there now but need to figure what css property is used to wrap the text in jquery
