Pass value without user clicking away from input type text

Hi guys

I hope you can help

I have a text box which has auto generated text depending on the date selected from the calendar

The problem I have is that I need this value to pass to ajax but as I am not actually entering the text myself I cannot use onChange,onkeydown onkeyup as the
text changes depending on the date chosen from the calendar

The script works fine when i type in the actual text box itself

Is there anyway I could use the functionality of onkeyup or onkeydown without actually entering a value. I want it to update when the text box is updated dynamically?

Thanks in advance

If you can’t edit the calendar code to fire off an ajax function when a new date is selected then one option could be to set up a setInterval to poll the value of the textbox, say every 2 secs, and if the value has changed then fire off an ajax request. Something like this as a starting point:

        <form action="" method="post" >
            <select id="sel1" name="sel1" onchange="doThis(this.value);">
                <option value="">Choose a value</option>
                <option value="val1">Value 1</option>
                <option value="val2">Value 2</option>
                <option value="val3">Value 3</option>
                <option value="val4">Value 4</option>
            <input type="text" id="txt1" name="txt1" />

        <script type="text/javascript">
            function doThis(val){
                document.getElementById('txt1').value = val;
            function checkVal(elem){
                if(elem.value != elem.prevValue){
                    alert('textbox value has changed');
                    elem.prevValue = elem.value;
                var txt1obj = document.getElementById('txt1');
                txt1obj.value = '';
                txt1obj.prevValue = ''

The <select> simulates your calendar.

Which calendar are you using? Maybe it has some features that we can help you use to achieve what you need to do.

On that page select hte Events tab, and you will see an event called onSelect which is designed to do what you need here.
