conradin Posted July 9, 2010 Share Posted July 9, 2010 Hi All,I am trying to use a select box to show file names of any given users account where clicking on any of the select box item would then load the data into flot. I know flot is probably beyond the scope of this forum. What I am trying to do is use <select> as an input type. A tutorial I followed uses the value tag of a select box to store the urls until the OnChange event occurs.http://www.davesite.com/webstation/js/theory1jump.shtmlhowever, the URLs I have are different for every user. I tried creating a value tag set as a variable but that wouldn't work.What i want to do is have a select box that is filed with the sort file names of a users files. When a user clicks on the file name, the data loads. as this pertains to flot, I only know how to load data from a button or a select box. Also note, I'm using coldfussion, and my server doesn't have php. Below, is a (snippet) code for a working input button, and a non-working select box. I would really appreciate any help I can get. <input class="fetchSeries" type="button" value="First dataset"> - <a href="<cfoutput>#FileURL#</cfoutput>">data</a> - <span></span> </p><!--- Select List box ---> <!--- Populate a SELECT (list box control) ---> <!--- Form is listed for compatability issues. jump2 said location ---> <form name="jump2"> <!--- Files list for user ---> <select class="fetchSeries" name="jumpBox" size="5" id="Files" OnChange="location.href=jump2.jumpBox.options[selectedIndex].value" value="<cfoutput>#FileURL#</cfoutput>" multiple> <cfoutput query="FileListJSON"> <CFIF len(FileListJSON.Name) LE 4> <cffile action = "copy" source = "#PathJSON##FileListJSON.Name#" destination = "#PathJSON#NoName.json"> <cffile action = "delete" file = "#PathJSON##FileListJSON.Name#"> <CFELSE> <cfset FileToGraph = LEFT(FileListJSON.Name, len(FileListJSON.Name) - 4)> <option value="#FileToGraph#">#FileListJSON.Name#</option> </CFIF> </cfoutput> </select> </form> If anyone really wants to be my hero and try using a set test set up I created, goto:http://icn2.umeche.maine.edu/newnav/NewNav...r/LoginForm.cfmlogin with the username: testotpassword: 111111then navigate to http://icn2.umeche.maine.edu/newnav/NewNavigator/e/ajax.cfm Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
