Integrating JavaScript within PHP....

I was wondering how to enable and disable form buttons, depending on which button I select, with JavaScript within PHP?

I have 5 buttons: "New Conference Leader', Save Conference Leader", Unlock Conference Leader", "Update Conference Leader", and "Delete Conference Leader". Update and Save buttons are disabled when the page loads.

So for example if I select "New Conference Leader" button, all buttons including "New Conference Leader" should be disabled, except for "Save Conference Leader", which should be then enabled.

All the help will be helpful:). I have had an error on the page when I run the PHP script saying that it was successful but with errors or something.

If you're trying to do this with PHP, you might be more successful creating an initial page with the buttons that should be enabled at the start (New, Update, Delete), and then create a sub-page that displays a different form depending on the action the user selected previously. This way, the user only sees the buttons relevant to his/her current action. Here's some beginning code to help you out:


$action = $_POST['action'];

if($action == 'new')

//display the form for creating a new conference leader

else if ($action == '$update')

//display the form for updating a conference leader

et cetera.

Each sub-form would be processed by a third-level page (e.g. handle_create.php, handle_delete.php, etc.)

I have a flash button and an html textbox. how to show a value 10$ in html textbox on flash button click

I believe what you are looking for is what is known as "GetElementByID".
This is used in JavaScript to allow control over html elements within the page. This can also be used to control back and forth between JavaScript, the Flash movie, and the HTML code.
Here is a website explaining this.
I hope this helps you, good luck!

How to disable command button in visual basic

  • tep 1 Open Visual Basic and select "Standard Exe" to create a new project.
  • Step 2 Add a button by clicking the square button tool on the right, and then clicking and dragging in the main window.
  • Step 3 Click the button once to open the "Properties" window on the right. Select the "(Name)" property, and type "myCmdButton" as the name.
  • Step 4 Double-click the button to open up the code-view window. Type the following in the white space under "Private Sub myCmdButton_Click()":
    myCmdButton.enabled = False;
  • Step 5 Click the blue "Run" button on the top toolbar of Visual Basic. Because you set enabled to "false" in the previous step, you will see your button grayed out, and nothing will happen when you click it.
