RE: Change In Cell Content Of Salary Or Bonus Or Deduction In Table Cells

@ahm1985, not sure exactly what your question is but I am guessing (a) how to add total or do math or (b) change color property as field values are changed.

If simply changing field color on change:


of course, if you need to change the color to different color based on UP/DOWN or any combination of criteria, you may need to use a method/function instead of using the inline approach


onfocus="initValue=$(this).val();" onchange="setColor($(this));"

function setColor(strOBJ) {
// set your logic here ... remember that initValue now has the value prior to change
it is important to define "initValue" in your page so that you do not run into errors - Some where after the </body> tag:


<script>var initValue=0.00;</script> 

Now, for the total, I like to assign a class or property to the fields that are common so that I can loop through the document and group those fields as needed. Using jQuery handy .each() you can do wonderful things.

Hope this points you in the right direction!

The good thing about not knowing is the opportunity to learn - Yours truly, 2008.
