Text from text box appearing on a label as it is typed?

I want to have a label control that displays text, letter by letter as a user enters it into a textbox. I know I will have to use the OnKeyPress event to perform this task, but I am not sure how to get the most recently typed letter appended to the and of the label. Or should I take the whole block of text each time? What would be the best way to go about this?

Hello,

maybe try this (not tested):

   function doTextChanged() {
      var TextBox = document.getElementById("MyTextBox");
      var Label = document.getElementById("MyLabel");
      Label.innerHTML = TextBox.value;
   }

   <input type="text" id="MyTextBox" onchange="doTextChanged()" onkeypress="doTextChanged()">
   <span id="MyLabel"></span>

The onchange makes it work gracefully enough, even on browsers not supporting onkeypress.

Writing each time the whole value doesn't make any significant overhead, and helps writing something as simple as portable.

Hope This Helps. -LV

Take the whole text each time and replace the innerHTML of a named DIV using javascript's onKeyPress method of the textbox.

Thanks for the advice. When I was doing it with onKeyPress, I was always one letter behind.

How do I block a user from entering text in a text box if they type text in another text box?
I have two text boxes, and want the user to complete one or the other.  How can I "grey out" one text box if a user starts typing in the other textbox?  Never make important decisions on a Monday! You can use the OnTextChanged event of the textboxes and write Javascript for both textboxes to disable the other textbox when the user starts to type in something in one textbox. The only problem with that is that once the user starts to type in something in one text box the other textbox gets disabled and locks up, so now the user HAS TO compulsarily type what he wants in th...

Any way to recover text typed in text box previously?
Sometimes I am typing a long response in a text box and then (a) accidentally click the Backspace button (b) Click Enter but the website returns some kind of error that drops me back. In such cases even if I hit the back button I cannot recover the block of text I had typed. On the otherhand FF is definately "text box aware" since while I am on a page if I make changes I can always revert by using "Right click + undo". Is there a way to access this "typed on previous page's text box" buffer somehow? That seems very useful. Maybe a add-on that ...
