Help with onchange programming for required dropdown

Recommended Posts

Someone please help me -- this is driving me crazy! I keep getting errors, simplifying my code, getting more errors, etc... So now I'm down to this barebones code in the footer:

document.getElementById("InsertRecordLoanPurpose").onchange= alert('ok');


(doesn't matter, commented out...)


I get one 'ok' alert when the page loads, then a "not implemented" error on line 416:

document.getElementById("InsertRecordLoanPurpose").onchange= alert('ok');

Has something gone out of scope somehow?

Here is the URL of the problem page: http://b3.caspio.com/dp.asp?AppKey=77e7 ... b8e4j6a7c0

Thanks for the reply. I get the following error with that code:

Message: Expected '('

Line: 416

Char: 71

Code: 0

URI: http://b3.caspio.com/dp.asp?AppKey=77e7 ... b8e4j6a7c0

I would expect that "function" would be a keyword to declare a new function. Maybe with a capital "F"? I'm trying all sorts of stuff.

Thanks for the help!

Wow, this works!

document.getElementById("InsertRecordLoanPurpose").onchange= flipFlags;

function flipFlags()




And for the event handler, "flipFlags" must be minus the parentheses. So it looks like parameter passing is out. Maybe. But who cares?? I can code around that. This thing has been giving me fits!

Thanks for the input, Jona :-)
