C# - Way To Highlight Text In A Textbox Using Javascript

May 19, 2010

I have an ASP.NET 2.0 webapp (with C#). I wanted to add a button which, when clicked would highlight selected text. By 'highlight', I mean change the CSS properties of the text so that it can stand out. I think this can be done with some clientside JavaScript.I know that you can assign a Javascript function to the onclick event of an HTML input button, but since I'm not very proficient at JS the function itself I have no idea how to write

How To Programatically Highlight All The Text Within A Textbox

Feb 18, 2010

Just wondering if it is possible to programatically highlight all the text within a textbox.

Specifically, I have a text box with validation. If an error is thrown, I set the focus to the specified textbox, but the way it works now the user starts typing and none of the text that already exists disappears. I'm wondering if I can make it so that if the error is thrown, not only is the focus set to the textbox, but the text within the textbox is selected, so that if they simply start typing all of the old text disappears, or they can click and retype a single character if necessary.

Forms Data Controls :: Highlight Text In A Dynamic Textbox

Oct 13, 2010

I have a dynamic textbox appearing in a gridview on the row editing function. I have the following code to set the focus tot he textbox:

GridView1.EditIndex = e.NewEditIndex

This works fine, but I would now also like to select the data in the textbox so the user does not have to select the text before typing, they can just type straight away. I have been trying to use:

txtTargetAmount1.SelectionStart = 0
txtTargetAmount1.SelectionLength = txtTargetAmount1.Text.Length

but this does not work.

Forms Data Controls :: How To Set Focus In Gridview Textbox And Highlight The Text If It Is Zero

Jan 6, 2010

I have a text box in a gridview that is causing some problems with user input. The first time the user opens the page the gridview is populated with zero's in all rows textboxes. I set the focus to the first textbox in the Page_Load event but the cursor is placed to the left of the zero and when some users enter data they don't realize the zero doesn't go away so the first row ends up wrong. Once the tab or enter key is hit and the next row is selected, the zero is "selected", for lack of a better term like when the insert key is predded, and once the user starts typing only the new value remains. Is there a way to make the zero in the first row "selected" ?

C# - Change Textbox Text In JavaScript?

Oct 7, 2010

I'm allowing a user to use either one of two textboxes to search a database - one is an ID field, and one is a freetext field. I'm using ASP.NET with C# btw.Anyway, all I need to do is have it so when a user clicks on one of the text boxes, the other text box text is simply deleted, so the other text box is blank. How would I do this? I'm guessing JavaScript is the solution.

JavaScript - Set Focus To End Of Text In Textbox After Postback?

Oct 27, 2010

I've got a simple ASP.Net form with txtBox and btn.

User click btn, which adds text to an ASP:TextBox in a postback (its adding a known "starter text".

After the postback I'd like the focus to be set to the end of the text in the textbox.

If I call Page.SetFocus(...) or txtBox.Focus() then the txtBox gets focus, but at the beginning of the text - which means if the user starts typing, they'll be in the wrong place.



would like it to be


I've tried the following in the textbox:

onfocus="alert('focus');this.value = this.value;"

but the "alert" only appears the first two times? Then nothing?

AJAX :: Highlight Contents Of Textbox With MaskedEditExtender?

Oct 6, 2010

I have a TextBox using the AjaxControlToolkit's MaskedEditExtender, the extender is using the Date mask (99/99/9999). We had modified the toolkit code to support 2-digit year (as seen in this post) which works just fine when the date TextBox initially has no value. But when the date TextBox has an existing date such as 10/04/2010, if I type in say 100409, it becomes 10/04/0910, in other words it doesn't replace the existing year but simply replace the first 2 digits of the year. If I first hightlight the entire field then type then it works. My question is is there a way to hightlight the entire date value of the TextBox upon entering the field?

I tried using javascript code textbox.focus() and .selet() but it doesn't highlight anything, it just places the cursor at the beginning of the textbox.

Automatically Highlight Specific Character In Link Text Using JQuery?

May 13, 2010

I'm adding hotkeys to a web application in order to enable keyboard shortcuts for our CSRs to use, to reduce injury and increase calls-per-hour. I'm using an ASP.net UserControl to inject javascript into the page and it's working great. I want the control to "just work", so that when hotkeys are assigned, using a declarative syntax, if the hotkeyed letter exists in the link text, it will be highlighted automatically, so the developer doesn't have to do anything, and also to maintain consistency in visual cues. Here's the code to assign hotkeys, if it matters:

<uc:HotKeysControl ID="theHotkeys" runat="server" Visible="true">
<uc:HotKey ControlName="AccStatus$btnInvoiceEverBill" KeyCode="ctrl+v" />
<uc:HotKey ControlName="AccStatus$btnRefund" KeyCode="ctrl+u" />
<uc:HotKey ControlName="thirdControl" KeyCode="ctrl+p" />

I want something like:

<a href="whatever" name="thirdControl">Make a <span class=hotkey">P</span>ayment</a>

but I'm not married to the idea of injecting a <span/> in there if there's a better way. How can I do this in CSS or JQuery? Is there a way to pass in a letter to a CSS style and have it change the color of the text displayed? Should I generate javascript to highlight the text when the page loads? What would/did you do in this situation?

Web Forms :: How To Highlight Selected Node In Treeview Using Javascript

Jun 30, 2010

Im using an asp.net treeview control and i managed to get code from these forums so that when i select a node no postback is done but i can access the selected node in my C# code behind pages by using javascript.

It works fine i can get the selected node by saying:

TreeNode t = TreeView1.SelectedNode;

and then displaying it to a label on an on click event of a button:

Label1.Text = t.Text;

But what i really need is to either display the node selected to a label (or textbox) or when a node is selected it needs to be highlighted so that the end user knows the option chosen is selected.
