Is there any way to repopulate an Html Select’s Options without firing the Change event (using jQuery)?

I have multiple selects:

<select id="one">
  <option value="1">one</option>
  <option value="2">two</option>
  <option value="3">three</option>
</select>
<select id="two">
  <option value="1">one</option>
  <option value="2">two</option>
  <option value="3">three</option>
</select>

What I want is to select “one” from the first select, then have that option be removed from the second one. Then if you select “two” from the second one, I want that one removed from the first one.

Here’s the JS I have currently:

$(function () {
    var $one = $("#one");
    var $two = $("#two");

    var selectOptions = [];
    $("select").each(function (index) {
        selectOptions[index] = [];
        for (var i = 0; i < this.options.length; i++) {
            selectOptions[index][i] = this.options[i];
        }
    });

    $one.change(function () {
        var selectedValue = $("option:selected", this).val();
        for (var i = 0; i < selectOptions[1].length; i++) {
            var exists = false;
            for (var x = 0; x < $two[0].options.length; x++) {
                if ($two[0].options[x].value == selectOptions[1][i].value)
                    exists = true;
            }
            if (!exists)
                $two.append(selectOptions[1][i]);
        }

        $("option[value='" + selectedValue + "']", $two).remove();
    });
    $two.change(function () {
        var selectedValue = $("option:selected", this).val();
        for (var i = 0; i < selectOptions[0].length; i++) {
            var exists = false;
            for (var x = 0; x < $one[0].options.length; x++) {
                if ($one[0].options[x].value == selectOptions[0][i].value)
                    exists = true;
            }
            if (!exists)
                $one.append(selectOptions[0][i]);
        }

        $("option[value='" + selectedValue + "']", $one).remove();
    });
});

But when the elements get repopulated, it fires the change event in the select whose options are changing. I tried just setting the disabled attribute on the option I want to remove, but that doesn’t work with IE6.

Answer

I am not (currently) a user of jQuery, but I can tell you that you need to temporarily disconnect your event handler while you repopulate the items or, at the least, set a flag that you then test for and based on its value, handle the change.

Answer

It looks like this has been reported as a Java bug. It appears to be caused by using annotations from a 3rd party library (like JUnit) and not including the jar with that annotation in the javadoc invocation.

If that is the case, just use the -classpath option on javadoc and include the extra jar files.

How to reference javadocs to dependencies in Maven’s eclipse plugin when javadoc not attached to dependency

I use Eclipse, Maven, and Java in my development. I use Maven to download dependencies (jar files and javadoc when available) and Maven’s eclipse plug-in to generate the .project and .classpath files for Eclipse. When the dependency downloaded does not have attached javadoc I manually add a link for the javadoc in the .classpath file so that I can see the javadoc for the dependency in Eclipse. Then when I run Maven’s eclipse plugin to regenerate the .classpath file it of course wipes out that change.

Is there a way to configure Maven’s eclipse plug-in to automatically add classpath attributes for javadoc when running Maven’s eclipse plug-in?

I’m only interested in answers where the javadoc and/or sources are not provided for the dependency in the maven repository, which is the case most often for me. Using downloadSources and/or downloadJavadocs properties won’t help this problem.

Answer

You might consider just avoiding this problem completely by installing the javadoc jar into your local repository manually using the install-file goal and passing in the -Dclassifier=javadoc option. Once you do that the .classpath that mvn generates should be correct.

If you use a remote repo as a proxy to central you could also deploy the javadocs to that repo and then everyone else who uses that proxy will now get the javadocs automatically as well.

Changing the default title of confirm() in JavaScript?

Is it possible to modify the title of the message box the confirm() function opens in JavaScript?

I could create a modal popup box, but I would like to do this as minimalistic as possible. I would like to do something like this:

confirm("This is the content of the message box", "Modified title");

The default title in Internet Explorer is “Windows Internet Explorer” and in Firefox it’s “[JavaScript-program].” Not very informative. Though I can understand from a browser security stand point that you shouldn’t be able to do this.

Answer

This is not possible, as you say, from a security stand point. The only way you could simulate it, is by creating a modeless dialog window.

There are many third-party javascript-plugins that you could use to fake this effect so you do not have to write all that code.

jQuery slicing and click events

This is probably a really simple jQuery question, but I couldn’t answer it after 10 minutes in the documentation so…

I have a list of checkboxes, and I can get them with the selector 'input[type=checkbox]'. I want the user to be able to shift-click and select a range of checkboxes. To accomplish this, I need to get the index of a checkbox in the list, so I can pass that index to .slice(start, end). How do I get the index when the user clicks a box?

Answer

The following selector should also work in jQuery: input:checkbox.

You can then string the :gt(index) and :lt(index) filters together, so if you want the 5th to 7th checkboxes, you’d use input:checkbox:gt(4):lt(2).

To get the index of the currently clicked checkbox, just use $("input:checkbox").index($(this)).
