$('#idOfYourTextbox').attr('type', 'text');

However, you cannot change the type of type="password" fields in IE (yay for useless "security" features).

it's good, because I dont need to toggle from password to text and back - only from password to text once. So sounds like it's going to work...

I get type property can't be changed exception from the jQuery framework. Any ideas?

As I said, you cannot convert password to text in IE. You'd have to retrieve the value using .val(), delete the element and replace it with a new element.

I don't think you can. Best thing to do is have two text boxes and then hide one on focus and show the other then focus it manually.

$('input:password').focus(function() {
     $(this).hide();
     $(this).siblings('input:text').show().focus();
});

This assumes they are both in the same container and the text box is hidden to start with.

These webcontrols render completly different: the TextBox with mode SingleLine renders as an an input element with type=text, TextMode.Password changes the rendering to an input element with type=password.

So although in asp.net it is a single property, in jquery you will have to change the attribute type:

If you also would like to change to TextMode.Multiline, you will have to change the input element to a textarea element.

You can use jQuery's replaceWith function.

$( "label" ).replaceWith( function() {
    return "<input type=\"text\" value=\"" + $( this ).html() + "\" />";
});

Kindly guide me how we can apply the script to just one label in a group.

This doesn't seem to work for me on Chrome and the jQuery website says it is browser dependent. Can anyone else verify?

It looks like WebKit browsers interfere with this because of the mouseup event. I added this and it worked: $('input:text').mouseup(function(e) { return false; });

Kenny is correct, but unfortunately 'mouseup' also affects Chrome spinner controls. Triggering off 'click' rather than 'focus' seems to solve that

I think you want to set the response of the call to the URL 'compz.php?prodid=' + x + '&qbuys=' + y as value of the textbox right? If so, you have to do something like:

$.get('compz.php?prodid=' + x + '&qbuys=' + y, function(data) {
    $('#subtotal').val(data);
});
get()

You have two errors in your code:

load() puts the HTML returned from the Ajax into the specified element:

Load data from the server and place the returned HTML into the matched element.

You cannot set the value of a textbox with that method.

$(selector).load() returns the a jQuery object. By default an object is converted to [object Object] when treated as string.

<div id="foo"></div>

then the result of

$('#foo').load('/your/url');
<div id="foo">5</div>

But in your code, you have an input element. Theoretically (it is not valid HTML and does not work as you noticed), an equivalent call would result in

<input id="foo">5</input>
<input id="foo" value="5" />

Therefore, you cannot use load(). You have to use another method, get the response and set it as value yourself.

does it really get more difficult if I just want to change where the result is being loaded? My code above is functional when I load it into a div.

@Ieyasu Sawada: Well, currently you are passing a JavaScript object to $('#subtotal').val(str3); because load() does not work as you thought it works. Yes, you can use load() to load text or HTML into a div but not as textbox value.

one last question?Why do I get spaces before the actual result on the output?Is it possible to strip them in jquery,basically compz.php contains lots of whitespaces for better readability and those whitespace are actually being outputted together with the result

<input type="text" onfocus="this.select();" onmouseup="return false;" value="test" />

+1 for some kind of stopEvent for mouseup, or this doesn't work reliably. The downside of doing that is that once the cursor is in the field, clicking somewhere within the selected text to position the cursor there doesn't work; clicks are effectively disabled. Still, for situations where selecting the whole text on focus is desirable, it's probably the lesser of two evils.

I was able to somewhat get around the issue raised by enigment by setting a global variable doMouseUp to false, during the onMouseDown event, if this != document.activeElement. Then, during onMouseUp, reset doMouseUp to true and return the doMouseUp value before you reset it. This is getting convoluted and needs code - I'll post an answer explaining it better.

While separating script from markup, this is the most elegant way to auto-select onfocus for a single text field. If I were going to have more than one field where I wanted this auto-select functionality, I would create a script function and call it.

Not sure what you are trying to accomplish on your first few lines but you can try this:

$(document).ready(function()
{
    $("#ms_num").attr('maxlength','6');
});

this is not standard and doesn't work in IE7, 8 and 9 so avoid it.

@Dynamic Do you have any links/documentation to back this up? According to w3Schools and Mozilla.Org These are still valid. Note in the Mozilla documentation it will only work for the following '<input>' tag types: text, email, search, password, tel, url

This is the correct way, Dynamic was incorrect. Its a standard attribute

$('#pid').val()

to get and

$('#pid').val('value')

I never tried the automatic set of html value of load method, sorry. For sure, you can do something like

$('#subtotal').load( 'compz.php?prodid=' + x + '&qbuys=' + y, function(response){ $('#subtotal').val(response);
});

It's worth pointing out the relevant jQuery api page for val(), for reference purposes.

compz.php computes the product of the 2 numbers in the input. I guess the part which loads the computed values: $('#subtotal').load('compz.php?prodid=' + x + '&qbuys=' + y); is being treated as object that's why I see object object as output, how then do I convert it to a normal value

It's never too basic, look at the question again. If he'd seen the page, or known its content, he probably wouldn't have asked the question =)

Pointing out the real problem would have been a good starting point Peace and Love ;)

Use hidden field value to store the textbox value

hid is the id of hidden field.

Hi Aarif , i can solved it but i want to know Why the text box value don't sended to server.!!! i also up your solution but exactly not my answer you said. Thanks

Jquery UI on run time removes the all document objects and puts it out side the DOM at this time none of the objects will be accessible for you . Thats the default behavior of all Jquery UI plugins . So you have to bear that some how by changing the way you are using it .

The max length property is camel-cased: maxLength

jQuery doesn't come with a maxlength method by default. Also, your document ready function isn't technically correct:

$(document).ready(function () {
    $("#ms_num")[0].maxLength = 6;
    // OR:
    $("#ms_num").attr('maxlength', 6);
    // OR you can use prop if you are using jQuery 1.6+:
    $("#ms_num").prop('maxLength', 6);
});

Also, since you are using jQuery, you can rewrite your code like this (taking advantage of jQuery 1.6+):

$('input').each(function (index) {
    var element = $(this);
    if (index === 1) {
        element.prop('maxLength', 3);
    } else if (element.is(':radio') || element.is(':checkbox')) {
        element.prop('maxLength', 5);
    }
});

$(function() {
    $("#ms_num").prop('maxLength', 6);
});

I can cook up a jquery solution which is

    if ($(this).val().trim()) {
        var $next = $(this).next('input');
        $next.focus();
    }
});

But you might wanna consider adding separate classes for this input and append it to the 'input' in the selectors
