Get it on Google Play
Get it on Apple App Store

You can do that with some javascript. To get the value from the dropdown, you'd use an OnChange event. Then refrence it by saying the name of the form, the name of the element, and the value like this:
document.bgcolor = formname.elementname.value;

I can't seem to reference any html tags like <p> or <body id attributes from my Visual Basic
Code editor.
Secondly I tried from my html editor to call a function from the on load method
kept getting errors
I also tried using <% %> these, still nothing
What i was trying to do was call a function from my <Body onload> method that was defined
in my visual basic code editor file.
I seen this done in the tutoriols offered by this site.
The difference is they use a text editor, and define both the html and Visual basic on the same file.
I am using Visual studio.
If use Javascript on a aspx file do you define the javascript on the server?

Pass client side changes back to server
Hi I have added a simple javascript in the head of my page to prompt a user to enter a new item and add that item to a checkboxlist using the outerhtml command. All it does is adjust the outerhtml to include the new list item 'checked' at the end of the list. The script works fine and the page displays the edited list. The user can add as many items as they wish. But when the save button is selected at the end. The server only knows of the original list items. Not the new user entered items. I don't know how to pass the items back to the server at the end. Can anyone help p...

Jscript, moving from client-side to server-side (.NET)
Hey all I’m working translating a web-app written in client-side Jscript to run on the server-side as JScript.NET. Without needing to get too specific, I am using Jscript because the original page aggregated raw data to produce statistical results (this was done dynamically based on user 'sort-by' options). The final output is an html report that can be emailed. Because this is currently being done on the client side, as the raw data grows the load-time grows as well (to the point that has almost become unusable). I’m posting here to see if anyone has any experi...

change control property from client side and have changes persist on the server
Hi I was wondering if it was possible to change a control's property from the client side with javascript without a post back and have those changes be reflected on the server when a post back occurs. Such as if I had a label and I change it's text property with javascript without a post back and when a post back occurs I can grab those changes on the server e.x. string labelText = label1.Text;  When using input controls (textbox, select etc) then it's definitely possible. But when using labels (which will be rendered as <span> tags) then I'm not sure they ...
