display Text under text using javascript & DHTML

2 New Member
Hi

I add a text using document.select ion.createRange ().
I want to add a text to the bottom of another text - similar to what we do in HTML.
<p>
xyz
</p>
<p><div style="position :relative;botto m:30px;">abc</div></p>

How can I achieve that using javascript?

Welcome to TSDN!

You may want to read about the insertBefore method. There's no insertAfter method, but the page explains how that can be achieved.

I want to add the text to the text inside textarea. So I use document.select ion.createRange () and populate it using createRange().t ext. As there is no element associated with in the textarea, I am unable to use the insertBefore() method. Please give me some other option.

In that case, just add it to the value of the textarea:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. document.getElementById("textareaID").value += whatever;

Hi, I have a drop down menu with a listing of communities and I use it to select a community, selecting a letter ie. "T" , I get bumped to the "T" section to choose communities that start with a "T". I need to get the "T" communities to start at the top of the community list in the drop-down box. Right now the communities starting with the letter you choose, are atthe bottom of the list and so you have to scroll more.

I recently learned how to do an <OBJECT> alternative to <IFRAME> in current browsers using: <object id="extendedhtml" type="text/html" data="otherpage.html" width="250" height="400"></object> My question is how do I access the document DOM of this object in Javascript? For example, "alert(extendedhtml.innerHTML);" doesn't work and produces an unknown error. I'd like to both read and write to the document's body element's innerHTML...

There have been fancy dhtml text effects since the early days of javascript. The rainbow text effect was one of the early ones. While some such effects may be fun on private pages, they can easily become obnoxious, especially on commercial sites. To a large extent, dhtml text effects have been replaced by flash, likely because the flash effects often are more easy to make for many people. How bad can a dhtml text effect be? Many of you...

I am a newbie. I am editing someone elses code to make it compatible with Firefox and Safari. In IE, when you click on the proper link, a block of text is shown in a nice paragraph form.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
