Forum OpenACS Development: Re: Preselecting option tags in template multiple

Posted by hsin wang on
Hello Gustaf,

Thanks for your detailed reply. I have switched my code over to use the group tag, which I agree is a much better way to go about it. The missing double quote was actually just a typo; it is in fact there in my code.

The output I get at the selected line becomes:
<option selected="" value="4">Jack Brown (JB-102)</option>

the ="" is generated and preventing an actual selection on the option (at least Firefox). In the screenshot you provided, does the ="" get generated in the source?

am on oacs-5-9 branch as well.

Strange. The screenshot above was made with ff 49, The raw HTML is below (double checked the raw output which is sent from the server to the browser):
<select id="uid" size="8" name="uid">
    <optgroup label="villain">
        <option  value="122">Joe Dalton</option>
        <option selected value="123">William Dalton</option>
        <option  value="124">Jack Dalton</option>
        <option  value="125">Averell Dalton</option>
    <optgroup label="cowboy">
         <option  value="126">Luky Luke</option>
I see no chance, how the the equals and the quotes are inserted by the template above. Are you sure, you have no plugin etc. installed, that processes the results? try to check with wget, what the server sends back.

Hi Gustaf,

I've checked with our admin and it seems we may have some plugins that could cause the effect. I've put in a ticket on our end. If we find that it is an internal issue, I'll update this to resolve it as a non-issue.

Thank you for your time and patience.
