Javascript login

Hello, I am a computer science major. I have had HTML and Java, but not any
JavaScript. I know they are similar, but there seem to be a lot of functions
and methods I am not familiar with. Plus I don't have a good understanding
of what Java can do within the web environment. (My Java classes
concentrated on console based applications.)

What I want is a simple Java Login box for "Apartment Number" that takes
that value and assigns it to a variable, such as "apartment" . I would like
to take the value of that variable, for example, 1555-7 and have the
computer load the webpage "1555-7.html"; preferrably within a frame called
Body. I would also like to do this without a popup, but an actual text box
within the webpage. Any help would be appreciate. I have seen various
methods of loading a new webpage, but don't which one to use. I have also
looked through the free scripts, and none of them seem to work for what I
want. They are either popups, or do too many complicated encryption
functions. Any help would be appreciated. I think I have a good idea on the
basic input to variable aspect. But don't have a clue as to how to load a
webpage using JavaScript.

P.S. What is the best, most complete source for JavaScript knowledge? (book
or website) Something that covers all that JavaScript can do.

Not sure if you're looking for a Java app, or a JavaScript solution.
Anyway - www.w3schools.com has a javascript tutorial
and you can use www.devguru.com for a decent reference
Netscape (AOL) seems to have abandoned the Javascript community
-- To go with Java, you'll probably need to work with server-side stuff like
JSP and servlets.

Using a free script from the internet, here is what I believe I am looking for: (something similar to this. This is after some editing.)

<form>
<p>Enter your apartment number :
<input type="text" name="Apartment ">
</p>
<input type="button" value="Log In" name="Submit" onclick=javascr ipt:validate(Ap artment.value> //Not sure about javascript:vali date
</p>
</form>

<script language = "javascript ">
function validate(Apartm ent)
{
if (Apartment=1555-7) //Or should that be '1555-7'?
load('1555-7.html');
else if (Apartment=1555-6)
{
load('1555-6.html');
}
else if (Apartment=1555-5)
{
load('1555-5.html')
}
}
function load(url)
{
location.href=u rl;
}
}
</script>

Like I said, I don't have any experience in this at all. (Except for Java experience.) This seems like it would work, but it doesn't load the webpage after clicking the Submit button. (Just doesn't load the site). Any help would be appreciated. Also, I am not one to take credit for other people's work. I deleted the copyright information for readability. So here is the information:

Hi,

I have a strange problem. I have a script that runs perfectly well on
Win+IE5, but fails in Mac OS 9+IE5.

The following assignment is used in submitRequest() function :

var result= allForms["RESULT_FOR M"][0];

This thing works fine in Win+IE5, but in MacOS9+IE 5 we get the
following JS error : allForms.RESULT _FORM.0 is not an object.

I can not understand why this thing is happening.

I would appreciate if you can give some guidance.

We need to see a little more code. Can you show how you create
"allForms"? If you are using:

var allForms = document.forms;

Then allForms will be a collection of all the forms. If one of the
forms is called "RESULT_FOR M", then:

var result = allForms["RESULT_FOR M"][0]

will create a reference to the first element in the form. Following is
a trivial case that works in IE 5 on OS 9 and IE 5.2 on OS X:

<html><head>
<title>IE play</title>
<script type="text/javascript">
function sayForms() {
var allForms = document.forms;
var result = allForms["RESULT_FOR M"][0];
alert(result.no deName);
}
</script>

</head><body>
<form name="form1" action="">
<input type="text" value="in form 1">
</form>
<br>
<form name="RESULT_FO RM" action="">
<input type="text" value="in RESULT_FORM">
<input type="button" value="click me" onclick="
sayForms();
">
</form>
</body></html>

Don't say they're similar, they have in fact nothing in common (except
maybe some syntax grammar, like C-like control structures).

Javascript is an interpreted language, which can be embedded in various
host environments (one of them being browsers); it can be coded in a
procedural, object-oriented or functional flavour; it is a remarkably
expressive language.
What I want is a simple Java Login box
I assume you mean javascript!
for "Apartment Number" that takes
that value and assigns it to a variable, such as "apartment" . I would like
to take the value of that variable, for example, 1555-7 and have the
computer load the webpage "1555-7.html"; preferrably within a frame called
Body.


<form action=""
method="post"
target="Body"
onsubmit="retur n loadRoom(this)" >
<input type="text" name="roomNumbe r">
<input type="submit" value="Go to the room!">
</form>

<iframe name="Body"></iframe>

<script type="text/javascript">
function loadRoom(frm){
return (
frm.action=
frm.elements["roomNumber "].value.replace(/\.html?$/i,"")+".html"
).length>5;
}
</script>

.... is probably the simplest, although you'll lack acceptable fallback
for instance in case of 404 or no-js user agents, which lead me to think
this should be done server-side.

Yep.

Your code was such a horrible mess I completely re-wrote it:

<form action="" method="GET" onsubmit="retur n go(this);">
<p>Enter your apartment number: <input type="text" name="Apartment "></p>
<p><input type="submit" value="Log In" name="Submit"></p>
</form>
<script type="text/javascript">
function go(f) {
var a = f.elements['Apartment'];
switch(a) {
case '1555-5':
case '1555-6':
case '1555-7':
f.target = a + '.html';
return true;
break;
}
return false;
}
</script>

It is trivially easy to get around by looking at the source code (and
no, you can't hide the JavaScript source from the person). And it
provides no way to stop the user from simply entering another apartment
number, or for that matter, typing
http://yourserver/{someapartment# }.html into their Web browser's address
bar.

Hi Rob, Thanks a lot for your help.
The major code is like this

In the HTML file I have the following JS Functions
--------------------------------------------------
/* Initializes the 'allForms' arry */
function initialize(doc)
{
top.initDocumen t(doc);
}

function submitForm(){
top.submitReque st("aaa",
url,
action,
func,
"",
new Array(""),
"_top");

}
....
/* Later I have the following Form in the same HTML */
/* The Hidden input are null and haveing name as null too will this
create any problems ? */

<form name="RESULT_FO RM" method=POST>
<input type="hidden" name="" value="">
<input type="hidden" name="" value="">
<input type="hidden" name="" value="">
<input type="hidden" name="" value="">
<input type="hidden" name="" value="">
</form>
---------------------------------------------------------------------
The function 'initDocument() ' creates the allForms array of forms and
the 'submitRequest( )' method submits the record. While submitting the
form, we get the error in IE5+MacOS 9
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Code of submitRequest() is something like :
---------------------------------------------------------------------
function submitRequest( url, //Url to submit to
generalData, //Some other data
formNames, //Forms to be submitted
target,
method) // request method for form.
{

//We get the form here

var result= allForms["POR_RESULT_FOR M"][0];

result.action= url;
result.target= target;
result.method= ((method=="GET" || target=="por_ma in") ? "GET" : "POST");
//we populate all the elements of the forms to be submitted to
//'result' object and then submit it
//Probably the point of error
result.submit() ;
}
---------------------------------------------------------------------
I think the problem is with the syntax of the last time 'result.submit( );'
This works well in IE 5+ Win and fails saying
'RESULT_FORM.0 is not an object'
Please help.

Small Correction in the line var result = allForms["POR_RESULT_FOR M"][0]
is actually var result = allForms["RESULT_FOR M"][0]
