On Update Page, using OnLoad Body on a Template

On Update Page, using OnLoad Body on a Template

Hi - I understand how to apply the list and select to the onLoad event of my BODY tag.

However my body tag is locked because of the template.

I've read this thread where Ray explains you can put the script in another place, without attaching it to an event and it will load on page load:

showthread.php?t=1844&highlight=body+onload

I'm having trouble understanding this though. Here is my JS that I took from the onLoad event I created on the body tag after I detached it from the template. It worked great - now I want to figure out where I can put it so I can put my template back:

WA_FilterAndPopulateSubList(groups_WAJA,MM_findObj('UserCompany'),MM_findObj('GROUP_ID'),0,0,false,': ');WA_setSelectionsInChildList(MM_findObj('GROUP_ID'),<?php echo $row_WADAusers['GROUP_ID']; ?>)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

P.S. - love this Dynamic Dropdown tool. Kudos to you guys.

locate the last <!-- InstanceEndEditable --> tag that occurs befor the body tag.


just before it, add a script tag with that code in it:
<script language="language="javascript"">
WA_FilterAndPopulateSubList(groups_WAJA,MM_findObj ('UserCompany'),MM_findObj('GROUP_ID'),0,0,false,' : ');WA_setSelectionsInChildList(MM_findObj('GROUP_I D'),<?php echo $row_WADAusers['GROUP_ID']; ?>)
</script>
<!-- InstanceEndEditable -->

Thanks Jason for your help.

This works:

</head>
<body onload="WA_FilterAndPopulateSubList(groups_WAJA,MM_findObj('UserCompany'),MM_findObj('GROUP_ID'),0,0,false,': ');WA_setSelectionsInChildList(MM_findObj('GROUP_ID'),<?php echo $row_WADAusers['GROUP_ID']; ?>)">
<div id="outerWrapper">

While this does not work:

<script type="text/javascript">
WA_FilterAndPopulateSubList(groups_WAJA,MM_findObj ('UserCompany'),MM_findObj('GROUP_ID'),0,0,false,' : ');WA_setSelectionsInChildList(MM_findObj('GROUP_I D'),<?php echo $row_WADAusers['GROUP_ID']; ?>)
</script>
<!-- InstanceEndEditable -->
</head>
<body>
<div id="outerWrapper">

My apologies, I mistyped. the script tag should go just before the last instance of the <!-- InstanceEndEditable --> tag before the Closing </body> tag.

Not working for me..

Hello (sorry for the necropost, but it is too applicable to start another thread...)

I have setup a parent/child dynamic dropdown on an DA update form.

Using the onLoad attached to the body tag as follows works perfectly:

php:
<body onload="WA_setSelectionsInChildList(MM_findObj('uinfo_country'),<?php echo $row_WADAusers['uinfo_country']; ?>);WA_FilterAndPopulateSubList(WADADynListprov_WAJA,MM_findObj('uinfo_country'),MM_findObj('uinfo_prov'),0,0,false,': ');WA_setSelectionsInChildList(MM_findObj('uinfo_prov'),<?php echo $row_WADAusers['uinfo_prov']; ?>)">

However, when I add the template this code is removed. Following the instructions throughout this post I modified the code to the following and added it before the last end of instance editable.

php:
<script type="text/javascript">
WA_setSelectionsInChildList(MM_findObj('uinfo_country'),<?php echo $row_WADAusers['uinfo_country']; ?>);WA_FilterAndPopulateSubList(WADADynListprov_WAJA,MM_findObj('uinfo_country'),MM_findObj('uinfo_prov'),0,0,false,': ');WA_setSelectionsInChildList(MM_findObj('uinfo_prov'),<?php echo $row_WADAusers['uinfo_prov']; ?>)
</script>



This has no effect on either dropdown.

Removing the first part which makes sure the parent is selected:

php:
<script type="text/javascript">
WA_FilterAndPopulateSubList(WADADynListprov_WAJA,MM_findObj('uinfo_country'),MM_findObj('uinfo_prov'),0,0,false,':  ');WA_setSelectionsInChildList(MM_findObj('uinfo_prov'),<?php echo  $row_WADAusers['uinfo_prov']; ?>)
</script>



Allows the parent to be selected properly (I assume from the DA behaviour), the child list is populated, however, the correct child is not being selected as the original value.

Any idea why?

Use fire fox for testing, and check the error console to see if any javascriot errors are reported.

what is the code for the two select lists on this page?
