Why won't my OnChange event work?

Seth Schrock

I have a textbox that I'm using as a search field: txtAddress. I have a query that is based on that field using the Like keyword so that I can have wildcards. What I would like to happen is that as I type each character into txtAddress, the subform (that is based on the query) requeries. Here is what I currently have:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Private Sub txtAddress_Change()
  2. If Me.Dirty = True Then Me.Dirty = False
  3. Me.sfrmAddressSearchResults.Requery
  5. End Sub
It seems like it is always one change behind. At first I didn't have the 2nd line and nothing happened. That is when I figured out that the value of the field hadn't changed for the query to see it yet, so I had it save and then requery. Now it will change, but if I start to enter 11, and then backspace and then type 80, then it still shows the addresses that starts with 11. If I manually run the query after making the change to txtAddress and then leave the field, the query runs exactly as expected so I know it is in my OnChange event that I'm messing up.

Duh... That is so simple even I should have seen that. Oh well.

I'm sure you would have, given time to allow your concentration to recede from the main issue of getting it to work at all. It's not uncommon to miss details like that while concentrating on just getting it to work.

I have radio buttons on a form, and when the user makes the selection, it will trigger the event and send the form to the web server and print the selected value. In Case 1, I just use submit button, without any event handling, and it works fine. However, in Case 2, which is what I am trying to do, it has the problem that even when the user clicks the button, it won't show the value automatically. But wait until user selects another...

Hi, I want to programatically fire an event. I have it working in IE, but Netscape won't work. What is the Netscape equivalent to, or a workaround for: document.myForm.myField.onchange(); I've read many posts, but none seem to answer my question. Anyway, my example follows.

When a user changes the value in a select statement, I would like to update the recordset using a onchange event. Could someone please point me in the right direction? Would like to stay away from forms if possible. <select style="width: 200px; font-size: 10px;" name="selStat" size="1"> <option value="<% = rs("Status") %>"><% =rs("Status") %></option> <option value="CLOSED">CLOSED</option> </select></td>

Hello. I"m new to this group, and to JavaScript in general, so please forgive me if I breach local etiquette. I'm trying to implement some client-side 'dynamic' validation on a form. I'm having a couple of problems, which I'll try to describe. But this e-mail will only reproduce one of them, in a "short" example. What I'm generally doing is having each form entry contained in a div, which as a label, an input with some event handlers,...

I know this is probably dumb but I have a web combo box that will drop down and I can select an item but SelectedIndexChanged doesn't fire. I tried to put the code in the ASP that says on the control: SelectedIndexChanged="vb sub" but that didn't fire either. I must not understand the way the web is interfacing with the code. All the controls are RUNATSERVER so that I can access all the events. Any ideas?

I need to raise the onchange event and Firefox is giving me some grief. I hear fireEvent is buggy with some events. Is that true? My code is simply this: targetTextbox.fireEvent("onChange"); Works fine in IE but not in FF. Is there a compatible equivalent in FF?

I have the following code which allows you to drag a div in IE, and have it then move back to it's natural position when you release the mouse button: <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> <html> <head><script type="text/javascript">var draggable=0;</script></head> <body> <div id="div1"

Hello, The onchange event fires in IE6 in a SELECT element when scrolling through the list with the up and down arrows on the keyboard. In Firefox it only fires after you hit the enter key, which is the behaviour I want make happen in IE. Does anyone know how to accomplish this? Thanks a lot Andy Birchall
