    input = button output = text

    Hi,

    I am trying to figure out this relatively simple code and was wondering if someone could provide me with a code that would produce the following:

    On my site I have a meny of 10 locations numbered 1 through ten.
    What I want to do is have this:

    Number: [text box to enter number 1=10]
    Button saying: [submit]

    Output:
    If the user enters the number 1 (which is Colorado) I want my text explaining in a paragraph about Colorado. If the user enters 2 (Nebraska) I want the output to show a paragraph on Nebraska. And so force.

    How do I get a code that does this?

    can anyone help me?

    Here`s a simple one:
    Javascript code:
    Code:
    <script language="javascript">
    <!--
    //screw you people who use the type attribute! OLDSCHOOL LIVE ON!
    var loccontent = new Array('<b>Location</b> 1 Information','<b>Location</b> 2 Information','<b>Location</b> 3 Information');
    
    function displaystuff(id,num) {
      if (num < loccontent.length && num >= 0) {
      document.getElementById(id).innerHTML = loccontent[num];
      }
      else { document.getElementById(id).innerHTML = "<p>Number invalid!</p>\n"; }
    }
    -->
    </script>
    HTML Code:
    Code:
    <form name="myform" onchange="displaystuff('output',this.options[this.selectedIndex].value)">
    <select name="locations">
    <option value="0">Location 1</option>
    <option value="1">Location 2</option>
    <option value="2">Location 3</option>
    </select>
    <input type="button" value="Get Information" onclick="displaystuff('output',document.myform.locations.options[document.myform.locations.selectedIndex].value)">
    </form>
    <div id="output" style="background-color: #cccccc; color: #0000cc; overflow: scroll; width: 256px; height: 128px; border: solid 1px #333333;"></div>

    thanks for the script, but it's too complicated for me. I am a beginner in Javascript.
    I have this script:

    <html>
    <title> </title>
    <head>
    <form name="myform">
    <input type="text" name="myTextInput" size="3"
    maxlength="3">

    <input type="button" name="myButton" value="Click here for info"></p>
    </form>

    </head>
    <body bgcolor="CCFFFF">

    <script language="JavaScript" type="Text/Javascript">
    <!--
    var num = 0;

    if(num == 1){
    document.write("<strong>Satisfied!</strong><br>");
    }
    if(num == 2){
    document.write("<strong>Good!</strong><br>");
    }
    if(num == 3){
    document.write("<strong>Excellent!</strong><br>");
    }
    if(num == 4){
    document.write("<strong>Ecstatic!</strong><br>");
    }
    if(num == 5){
    document.write("<strong>Happy!</strong><br>");
    }
    if(num == 6){
    document.write("<strong>Super!</strong><br>");
    }
    if(num > 6){
    document.write("<strong>No Information Available</strong><br>");
    }
    if(num < 1){
    document.write("<strong>No Information Available</strong><br>");
    }
    //-->
    </script>

    However the part in the <head> section does not coincide with the <body> section. Instead of entering numbers 1-6 in the body I need to enter it in the text box click on my <button> and receive the texts of: satisfied/happy/excellent etc
    I know I need to use an output of this.options.value, but i just don't know how to do it.
    Please help!

    Try this on for size then:
    Code:
    <script language="javascript">
    <!--
    function getinfo(input,output) {
    document.getElementById(output).value = input;
    }
    -->
    </script>
    Code:
    <input type="button" value="Massachusetts" onclick="getinfo('Cranberries for the win!','stdout')">
    <input type="button" value="Ohio" onclick="getinfo('Got potatoes?','stdout')">
    <input type="button" value="Californa" onclick="getinfo('Pure gold.','stdout')">
    <br>
    <input type="textbox" id="stdout">
    Or together:

    Code:
    <html>
    <head>
    <title>Testing</title>
    <script language="javascript">
    <!--
    function getinfo(input,output) { document.getElementById(output).value = input; }
    -->
    </script>
    </head>
    <body>
    <input type="button" value="Massachusetts" onclick="getinfo('Cranberries for the win!','stdout')">
    <input type="button" value="Ohio" onclick="getinfo('Got potatoes?','stdout')">
    <input type="button" value="Californa" onclick="getinfo('Pure gold.','stdout')">
    <br>
    <!--uncomment this and comment or delete the <textarea> to output into a text box<input type="textbox" id="stdout">-->
    <textarea id="stdout"></textarea>
    </body>
    </html>
    If you want to learn some javascript, try http:/www.htmlgoodies.com/beyond/javascript
    This was just a very simple thing, you can also use buttons to be outputted to, but it would pretty much useless. If you wanted to, you could change the script line to document.getElementById(output).innerHTML = input; and the output could be something like a <td> or <div> and you can then use HTML inside of the text.
