View Full Version : Javascript add link to page with text box input and save

03-01-2009, 05:15 AM
This seems to be a tough one as i have not found a solution yet.I need a javascript guru.
I have text box on a page.The user enters a 10 digit number in the box and clicks submit.
The result is a link is added to the same page. ie http://0123456789 .I want to be able to save this data client side and be able to add as many links as possible.It has to be client side and safari complient ...thanks to all that reply

Do the links have to show up next time you visit the page? And do they have to effect everyone seeing the page? Or just the client?

Yes they have to come up again.Have to be able to save and delete.I was thinking maybe a cookie or mydatabase type setup.This is for a stand alone system client side only.I have a close demo except it only loads and save text in a iframe.
take a look at http://www.how2iphone.mobi/Note_Lock.html and http://www.how2iphone.mobi/datastore.js

You would need server side stuff... I'm sorry... Unless you wanted to use ActiveX which i know NOTHING about.

I was thinking maybe . . . mydatabase type setup . . . client side only

Apples and oranges. All database sorts of things are server side. Besides, you never really answered Nile's question (emphasis added):

sorry about that.i thought i was clear.it's stand alone single machine.not attached to server.it' being compiled into a mobile app.

Ok. If its only on the client's side, then do you mind showing me what this thing the user adds is going to look like - so I can work on it. :)

Thanks Niles.Take look at the links in the above previous post.
