Ortmann: Ankr yes i managed to disable default click event, but how do i enable it again?
Steff: Lintguy you stop calling e.preventDefault ?
Kalkman: Don’t e.preventDefault when you want it to go through
Kalkman: Do when you don’t want it to go through
Kalkman: The handler fires once per click, so you put the logic to decide if it’s “enabled” or not in an if check inside the handler
Gleaves: I am using jspdf, anyone know how to get the URL to be something sane when you click ‘DSHB data sheet’ right now its a huge 64 bit string i think. http://dshb.biology.uiowa.edu/15H2-anti-Robo3-cytoplasmic
Trax: Hey all, could anyone help me with this? http://pastebin.com/78vy6jzB — for some reason, it works as far as checking for a valid email, but as soon as the alert box “OK” is clicked, it submits the form anyhow, even with an invalid email.
Macconaghy: Not sure why it’s submitting rather than requiring the user to enter a correct, valid email and press submit again
Laverriere: Returning false in the void doesn’t do anything to form submit
Engblom: Well it depends how you attach the event handler
Monford: It’s an onclick event
Schmeichel: Ahh, that I copy/pasted lol, I can use just script
Osbeck: Jax2, did you use return in the inline attribute ?
Babena: Erm. Did I mention I know nothing about JS? :
Mcquage: It doesn’t change what you have to do, or what you copy/pasted in your code
Surina: Jax2: you shouldnt work with alerts too =/
Turrubiates: Input type=”submit” onclick=”return checkEmail” /
Schindele: Input type=”submit” onclick=”return checkEmail;” /
Treible: With the , like in the email.focus;
Launiere: Form onsubmit=”return checkEmail;”
Venghaus: But that’s the very old way to do it
Galbreath: Maybe check out .addeventlistener
Schommer: If u got the time for that
Tofanelli: I do, I need to learn JS for sure anyhow
Glodich: Jax2: check out .addEventListener then
Fiorino: Attach your function to the submit event of the form using that function
Smedes: Ok, will do. Thanks for the tip
Biafore: And use e.preventDefault;
Ducklow: And try to not use alert
Lathrop: It provides a horrible user experience 😛
Congress: I guess the next chapter will talk about blink and how to create your Applet.
Matalavage: I have a better one for p***word and username with css styled containers, just don’t have one for email
Pali: Anyway, now you just need input type=”email” required in HTML5
Fernanders: Not supported in all browsers yet
Lindbeck: Yeah, but you have to validate on the server-side anyway
Hospelhorn: And of course, even if you provide a JS validation, ALWAYS validate serverside again
Maglione: I am using required, yes
Steffani: Jax2: its about the type=”email”
Cattladge: It validates automatically inline
Procter: Ok, worked fine with the return emailValidate;
Yerkes: Oh? html5 has email validation? I wasn’t aware of that!
Favre: And see if it fits ur needs
