View Full Version : Resolved instead of onchange

11-26-2012, 06:28 AM
I have an input like this

<input type="text" name="handle" id="handle" size="20" value="<?=$_SESSION['post']['txtHandle'];?>" tabindex='1' onchange="toggle_handle(this.value)" />

the issue is that i am now changing that to a auto generated value so i had to change it to readonly and in doing so now my onchange wont work because im not inputing the value so it does not see the change.

<input type="text" readonly="readonly" name="handle" id="handle" size="20" value="<?=$_SESSION['post']['txtHandle'];?>" tabindex='1' onchange="toggle_handle(this.value)" />

//need to execute it here or in the input if i can

Question is what can i use to execute the toggle_handle now. What are my option, i obviously cant use onchange, and onfocus and onblur is out im sure because it is readonly. I tried onload just to test but that dont work lol

Any suggestions in order to excute that right after its loaded


UPDATE i did get the onclick to work but you have to click on it, but thats ok its better than nothing. if i just put the call to the function it wont execute until the form is done and thats not what i want. I wish there was a way to just let it execute in exactly the same manner as the onchange but allow it to sense the onchange automatically.

Simply put the code at the bottom of the web page so it runs as toon as the HTML finishes loading

Thanks i tried that but didnt work.

here is the bottom of my page its split into several sections this is the first process section for a multi form

//finish up page one below

</td></tr></table></div><div class="page-bottom"></div><br /><div align="right"> <input type="image" src="<?=$SKIN_IMAGE_PATH?>/step2.gif" name="Submit" value="Continue to STEP 2 >>" style="color:#71293e" tabindex="8"></div>

//footer that has some html in it

<!-- this should run after page loads as soon as the html is done -->
<script type="text/javascript">

}//end of page, last php command nothing further on page at all

What i ended up doing is just not using the ajax listener for that event. I just hard coded the php and js in that section rather that use the ajax.

Thanks :)
