ID names within a <div></div> pair?

Dear folks,

In Javascript, is it possible to get all id names within, say, a
<div></divpair? Like the array of "document.image s", I mean.

The reason I ask, is that I have a calender whose <td></tdtable
elements, within a given <div></div>, all have a class type, one of which
is "today" (to highlight it). Once the calender is drawn, the Javascript
has ended. And since Javascript has no known (to me) method of storing
variables in say, the system environment, on re-use I'll have to resort to
canceling the classes for all ids within the calender before I can
highlight a different day.

Make sense? :)

Thanks,

- Mark

You can make a persistent object that stores references to the cells
if you like. There are also various examples of
"getElementsByC lassName" functions in the archives. You can also give
elements multiple classes, then add and remove them as required.

One technique is to give the table cells an ID based on the date that
they represent (remember to always prefix numbers with a letter to
ensure valid IDs), then you change the IDs as you change the dates -
anything is possible. There are hundreds of calendar scripts out
there already, Matt Kruse has one here:

<URL: http://www.javascripttoolbox.com/lib/calendar/ >

although it needs to be modified to fix the date format to something
more appropriate for the web (it uses the USA's peculiar mm/dd/yyyy
format) - I don't think it would be too difficult.

It also starts the week with Sunday, even though the Almighty apparently
preferred Monday for that. But the "German" calendar just needs the
words to be translated from German to local preference. No mention of
the International Standard, of course. And I saw nothing on Week
Numbers.

while(this.getD ay()%6==0) // is shorter than
while(this.getD ay()==0 || this.getDay()== 6)

IIRC, this.setHours(0 , 0, 0, 0); worked in IE4.

In validating, there's no need to check for Leapness until it has been
established that it is a Feb 29 date. But for shorter code one can
compare the date with 28+Leap(Y) .

In <http://www.javascriptt oolbox.com/lib/date/examples.php>, the "Adding
Time" demo must have a problem. If I add 7500000 seconds and 0..7 years
to 2000-01-01 01:00:00, I should not always get the same time of day.
And its input windows are too narrow, though 75e5 will fit.

Adding Years Months Days Result
7 2 23 March 24, 2007 1:00:00 AM (Saturday)
7 2 24 March 25, 2007 12:00:00 AM (Sunday)
7 2 25 March 26, 2007 1:00:00 AM (Monday)

One hour different, on one of the days.

Adding 7 2 23 23 59 00 -March 25, 2007 12:59:00 AM (Sunday)
Adding 7 2 23 23 59 60 -March 25, 2007 12:00:00 AM (Sunday)

so adding 60 seconds more makes it an hour earlier. The page would be
better if that used ISO format, or user's choice.

N.B. North Americans will (mostly) be able to do corresponding tests but
with a different date and time. Remember ISO 16262:2002 15.9.1.8, last
paragraph of p.120. (ECMA : first para).
BTW, ISO 8601:2004 is published on the Web in PDF (plain & zip).

That's configurable.
No mention of the International Standard, of course.
Date format is also easily configurable.
And I saw nothing on Week Numbers.
Never implemented because I never had the need for it.

Code was written years ago and never optimized. Although premature
optimization is unnecessary, the code could certainly stand to be less
verbose in places. A full re-write is on my to do list, and has been for
almost 2 years.

Interesting. Have you looked at the code and found where the bug might be? I
have not yet verified myself that there is a bug, but if you have a patch it
would be great.

I don't believe the maxlength prevents a larger value.

I'm not sure by what standard "better" is judged.

Half? I think you've understated your case. ;-)

Christians make up only one third of the world's population, and some
of them (quite a few apparently) think the seventh day is Saturday.
Moslems, when using a Gregorian calendar, think its Friday.

But there is no mention of the International Standard, which includes a
useful explanation of why your locally-preferred formats are
unreasonable.

Well, ISTM that to do it right one needs to be thinking more clearly
than, for example, MS.

No; it took me long enough to see where it rejected (correctly, of
course) Dec 32.

I don't believe the maxlength prevents a larger value.
The physical length prevents easy reading of a longer value, and there
is ample free space.

I'm not sure by what standard "better" is judged.
Well, about 95% of the world would prefer the time to use the 24-hour
clock; and it would be easier for everyone to check the date if that
also used numeric fields in descending order. Giving a choice is surely
better; one believes the USA to be in principle in favour of free
choice.
>Remember ISO 16262:2002
15.9.1.8, last paragraph of p.120. (ECMA : first para).

Hmm, I don't recall.
It is considerable importance to North Americans at the present time;
and particularly to those who publish such examples.
>BTW, ISO 8601:2004 is published on the Web in PDF (plain & zip).

Well I'm sure that means somethin'
You can find more, indirectly, by consulting the newsgroup FAQ.

I suggest that there should be an explicit and obvious statement of how
the code is intended to handle changes in offset from GMT.

There are basically three approaches :
(1) Consider every day to have 24 hours. For that, just use only the
UTC functions, which are quicker.
(2) Handle changes fully, which needs careful consideration of the exact
effects of the various non-UTC functions
(3) Neither of those.

Judaism is also Friday.
Start/end of week and Holy Day (where applicable) are independent
concepts.

The Jewish Holy Day is not Friday, although it starts on Friday at
(sunset - 30 mins) or at 18:00 according to preference. They recognise
two types of week; starting or finishing on Saturday (which means Friday
evening to Saturday evening, in ISO 8601 terms).

Their Year 1 in fact started on a Monday, BC 3761-10-07 Julian.
