User Control Access from Javascript

P: n/a
Hi all,

I have a user control that uses control literal to build
a heading with a link, and a div containing links below.

As the link heading is hit, I want to change the style of
the div, making it visible or not. Yep you guessed it,
expanding tree type functionality.

The header has an onclick event onclick='Doexpandcollapse
(Personal)'

The div is set as follows "<DIV> ID=Personal".

From the page load event in the user control I register a
client script block.

function Doexpandcollapse(whichElement)
{
whichElement.style.display=
(whichelement.style.display="none")?" ":"none";
}

I get an error Personal is undefined.
I have also tried document.all.Personal get the same error
I have also tried document.all.whichElement

none of them seem to be able to locate the DIV.

Hi Pete,

You'll need to use the getElementById() javascript function. In your client
script block:

function Doexpandcollapse(whichElement)
{
getElementById(whichElement).style.display=
(getElementById(whichElement).style.display="none" )?" ":"none";
}

I just had the same problem. Check the generated HTML (View Source) and you
will see that the name of the user control is prepended to the ID. You will
have to find the control with the name UC:Element.

Pete,

Another thing to note is that the ID on the server will often vary on the
client.

You may need to pass to your clientside javascript function the Client ID of
the Div: Personal.ClientID

Hi all,

Thanks for the replies. I'm still having the problem.

Looking at the rendered HTML the DIV has definately got
the ID of Personal and has not been prefixed with the
user control. With regard to using the client ID, I
thought this would only be for controls where the ID is
generated by ASP.NET (HTML included below).

I have also tried the getElementById in the client script
block. Here is the script as rendered at runtime.

As the function executes I get the message Personal is
undefined.

/*
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE=javascript>function ExpandCollapse
(whichElement){a=document.getElementById(whichElem ent);}
</SCRIPT>
*/

Heres the HTML:

/*

I just had the same problem. Check the generated HTML (View Source) and youwill see that the name of the user control is prepended to the ID. You willhave to find the control with the name UC:Element.

Hi all,

I have a user control that uses control literal to build a heading with a link, and a div containing links below.
As the link heading is hit, I want to change the style of the div, making it visible or not. Yep you guessed it,
expanding tree type functionality.

The header has an onclick event onclick='Doexpandcollapse (Personal)'

The div is set as follows "<DIV> ID=Personal".

From the page load event in the user control I register a client script block.

function Doexpandcollapse(whichElement)
{
whichElement.style.display=
(whichelement.style.display="none")?" ":"none";
}

I get an error Personal is undefined.
I have also tried document.all.Personal get the same error I have also tried document.all.whichElement

none of them seem to be able to locate the DIV.

Pete,

Another thing to note is that the ID on the server will often vary on theclient.

You may need to pass to your clientside javascript function the Client ID ofthe Div: Personal.ClientID

Hi all,

I have a user control that uses control literal to build a heading with a link, and a div containing links below.
As the link heading is hit, I want to change the style of the div, making it visible or not. Yep you guessed it,
expanding tree type functionality.

The header has an onclick event onclick='Doexpandcollapse (Personal)'

The div is set as follows "<DIV> ID=Personal".

From the page load event in the user control I register a client script block.

function Doexpandcollapse(whichElement)
{
whichElement.style.display=
(whichelement.style.display="none")?" ":"none";
}

I get an error Personal is undefined.
I have also tried document.all.Personal get the same error I have also tried document.all.whichElement

none of them seem to be able to locate the DIV.

P: n/a
OK a little bit more info:

I have worked out that the undefined error message goes
away if I place the name in quotes when callinf the
script.

e.g. before ExpandCollapse(Personal) now ExpandCollapse
("Personal"), however, I still cant access the DIV
elements, so I changed the expand collapse script to get
all DIV tags and display the ID's like so:

function DoExpandCollapse()
{
alert('ExpandCollapse');
var coll = document.all.tags("DIV");
for (i=0; i<coll.length; i++)
{
alert(coll[i].id);
}
}

The ID's are showing as empty string but I can see the
TWO DIVs in the source one with an ID of Test and another
with an ID of Personal. - Whats happening to the ID's?

Pete.

I just had the same problem. Check the generated HTML (View Source) and youwill see that the name of the user control is prepended to the ID. You willhave to find the control with the name UC:Element.

P: n/a
GOT IT.....

I didn't think it mattered (maybe someone can confirm)
but the HTML I was rendering via the literal control for
the DIV was as follows:

/*<DIV style=' display: none; id="Personal">*/

Event changing the function to loop through elements I
could see the DIV but it had no ID. I changed the HTML

/*<DIV id="Personal"; style=' display: none;>*/

and it worked a treat?????????

I thought the order of HTML tags was irrelevant?

Hi Peter,

I am glad to know that the problem is resolved.

For the issue regarding the order of HTML tags, I cannot reproduce the
problem on my side. Please try the following simple code snippet on your
side.

--------------------------------------
<html>
<head>
<title>My Example</title>
<script language="Javascript">
var origDivHTML;

function init()
{
origDivHTML = myDiv.innerHTML;
}

function setValues()
{
var oldinnerHTML = "your original innerHTML: " + yourDiv.innerHTML ;
alert(oldinnerHTML);
yourDiv.innerHTML = origDivHTML;

var curinnerHTML = "your current innerHTML: " + yourDiv.innerHTML ;
alert(curinnerHTML);
}
</script>
</head>

<body onload="init()">

<div style="" id="myDiv">
<select name="firstSelect" size="1" >
<option>11111</option>
<option>22222</option>
<option>33333</option>
</select>
</div>

<div style="" id="yourDiv">
<select name="secondSelect" size="1" >
<option>aaaa</option>
<option>bbbb</option>
<option>cccc</option>
</select>
</div>
<button onclick = "setValues();">click me to set the values</button>
</body>
</html>
--------------------------------------

Would you pleaes try to reproduce the problem on your side with the above
testing sample? I certainly appreciate your time.

If I have misunderstood your concern, please feel free to let me know.

Jacob,

Thanks for your reply and code snippet. I implemented the
code and it seemed fine, unsure what was happening in my
example other that the HTML was rendered from a user
control. I could zip up a quick example and send it to
you if you like? Please let me know.

Regards, Pete.

Jacob,

OK I have tried to reproduce this again but the code has
moved on somewhat and now I am finding it impossible to
reproduce - isn't that usually the case. However, I do
have a theory.

The page is essentially made up of tables containing
various user controls. Each user control has tables
contained within it. Looking back at the original HTML
that was rendered in the first Mail, it looks as if
tables within the different user controls are getting
rendered with the same ID - Table 1 - I guess this has
got to cause problems, I know it still doesn't explain
the error I was originally getting.

Guess I will have to put this down as one of those things
as I am really struggling to reproduce.

Thanks for your help anyway....Pete

Hi Peter,

Thank you for your update.

If you can zip up a quick example for reproducing the problem, please send
it to my email box - ya******@hotmail.com and notify me in this thread.
Personally, I prefer that you can show your reproducing sample and the
detailed reproducing steps in the newsgroup. It will be helpful to
everybody here.

If you cannot compose a simple reproducing example for this issue, please
try to change the value of the style and test this issue again. (Maybe this
issue is caused by the "display: none".)

On the other hand, as you have mentioned before, I agree with you that "I
didn't think it mattered" :-)

If you have any more concerns for this issue, please feel free to let me
know.

Best regards,
