View Full Version : Adding Elements (sub tables) to a Table..

06-16-2004, 08:04 PM
ok. I'm building a test builder.

The initial table will be setup as: (empty)


I will then want to "add" a question which will effectively add
the below code (not exactly) to the MAINTABLE Table.

<TD Width=100%>
<TABLE NAME="QUES"+offset#>
<TD WIDTH=10%><SELECT NAME="TYPE"+offset#>...</SELECT></TD>
<TD WIDTH=40%>
<TABLE NAME="INFO+offset#>........</TABLE>

How would I go about adding complicated elements like the above to
a table using javascript (IE right now, that's the only browser being used).

looking for ideas, not exact code, as what I need added hasn't been
totally finalized yet. Once I get the idea of what I need to do, I should
be ok.

I don't understand that answer at all. Please explain.

First, I do not see a need for table.
Second, you start with at least one set of elements, then use cloneNode to create a copy of a node containing these elements, modify ids as/if needed, and append to the same parent.

See www.klproductions.com/klquiz.html (find a link to the quiz builder towards the bottom of the page) for interface example.

Intresting link..

I'll have to look into cloneNode to see what it/how it works.

I want to have all the questions on the page at one time, so the
table would be a nice way to separate the questions. whereas
the quiz link, only displays one question at a time. And for our
purpose, this are for survey entries, so there are no "correct"
answers, but the setup would be the same as setting up a quiz.

I did find some links with more persistant, and weeding out lots
of sites that didn't help.

Once the questions are setup, I will have a non-js program on
the server side dynamically create the HTML/javascripting needed
for the answering stage.

I was not referring to the quiz demo page but to the builder page:
I use the described method to add answer options and result ranges.

It's going to take awhile to disect, as I don't use these methods.
