Bold/Italic/Underline Buttons For Text Field.

Sep 24, 2007

How would I go about making buttons (much like the ones above where you type posts/replies on this or any other message board) that would insert HTML code for:<b>, <i>, <u> etc, wherever the user's cursor is at within the text field?...Is that even PHP? Or another web technology all together?

Regexp Text Bold Or Italic

What I'm trying to achieve: I run a forum, and want people to be able to make text bold or italic using a particular method which is to start the text to be formated with a bracket, and to end the text with a bracket then either i or b (i for italics, and b for bold) For example,

(this is some text)b
Is to be regexp'd to look like:
this is some text

It needs to be with the brackets than any other methods, as I am migrating data from a large system that uses this particular setup. What I've come up with so far is.

$dbRow->message = ereg_replace("[(]+.+[)]i","<i></i>", $dbRow->message);

This leaves in the brackets though, and also the control character (in this case, the i) at the end of the text. Also, the other problem is, that if you have a section of text to be italic, then of normal text, then more of italic, it just makes the whole lot italic.

Bold, Italics, Underline Str_replac'd Using The Same Char For Opening And Closing Tags

I want to write a _very_ simple text parser that would replace a
string like:

"This is text with /italics/, *bold* and _underline_."

and generate automatically something like this:

"This is text with <i>italics</i>, <b>bold</b> and <span

I've found a lot of code snippets explaining how to do BBCode, but
BBCode has different opening and closing pseudo-tags. In my example,
the opening and closing tags are the same (either /, * or _). So I
need something slightly more intelligent that would count the number
of /, * or _ tags, see if that number is even or odd and decide
accordingly if it must replace the char with an opening or closing
tag. (I hope my wording makes sense. It's very clear in my head :-D)

How would you implement that? I reckon it can't be hard, but I just
can't figure how to do it right now!

Problem With Making A Text Bold

i have a some textual content in a field in my mysql database. say it is $row['text']

now i want to make all the occurances of a $keyword in $row['text'] as bold.

Extract First 30 Characters Of One Text Field And Input Into The Post Title Hidden Field

my home page is an insert form where the user posts what they want to buy/sell. there are two fields in the db that i'm dealing with for this problem, one is the user's postint title and the other is the content they enter. i only have the user enter the content right off the bat, but they can always login and edit their post title whenever they want. can i extract the first 30 characters from the content and submit it into the post title hidden field when they initially fill out the form?

i've tried something like,
$title = $_POST['content'];
$title = substr($title, 0, 30);
... and then in my form...
<input type="hidden" value="<?php echo $title;?>

Help? How To Create Next Buttons When Using A Flat Text Database

Ok, I know the code below does not work but I am wondering about the logic...

1 How do I just print 10 rows.
2 How do I get the buttons.

You get the Idea. Anyway, I would like to know if anyone has done this with text files. I always see mysql as examples but nothing using a flat text database.

$maxResults = 10;
$datafile = "sometextfile.txt";

$rows = @file($datafile);
for($size=0;$size<count($rows);$size++) {
$rows[$size] = chop($rows[$size]);
$coll = split("|",$rows[$size]);

// print something

if ($size > 0) {
$currPage = $size / $maxResults;
if ($currPage > 1)
print("<A HREF="test.php" >['prev']</A>");
for ($i = 0; $i < $size / $maxResults; $i++) {
if ($currPage == $i + 1)
printf("<A HREF="test.php"> </A> ",$i + 1);
printf("<A HREF="test.php"> </A> ",$i + 1);
if ($currPage < size / $maxResults)
print("<A HREF="test.php">['next']</A>);

Get Form Field Value Then Use To "Stuff" URLs Behind Buttons?

On my PHP web page, I want to have an input field where the user can enter a web address. I want to do a quick validation to make sure it actually looks like a web address. If good, I want to append that web address to the URL behind some buttons the user can click.

For example, maybe I want to create something that lets the user enter a web address, then click buttons that send that address to the W3C CSS, HTML, and link-checking validators. Also, I can't have the page refresh between the input field entry and clicking the buttons; clicking the buttons needs to automatically pick up the value, stuff the URL, and redirect to the destination page.
