add text to textfield and/or textarea

P: 5
Hi there!

Im making a little project that uses while loop.
Here is my code:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <script type="text/javascript">
  3. var counter = 0;
  4. var koniec = 100;
  6. while(counter <= koniec) {
  7.         document.write(counter);
  8.         document.write(linebreak);
  9.         counter++;
  10.     }
  11. </script>
I want the while loop to output numbers in a textfield. Ive done this by using "document.myForm.myText.value = counter",
but it only shows the final number ( in this case 100) and I want it to show al the progress like that:

Thanks a lot.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. textfield.value = counter;
simply overwrites the value of the textfield. i assume you want to use a multiline textarea and it should look more like:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. textarea.value += '\n' + counter;
which should append a linebreak and the next value to the textarea.

then the shown requirement when following the link in the original post is just misleading and the question was not clear enough.
