Get Client ID using Jquery

September 20, 2010 1 comment

When we are developing client side in, we need the id of the controls, but the IDs are merged with master page naming containers.

The id will look something like this

But using Jquery we can get id like this

$("#<%= <strong>txtboxId</strong>.ClientID %>")
$("[id$=_<strong> txtboxId</strong>]").attr("id")

You can also use the function

function GetClientID(id, context) {
var el = $("#" + id, context);
if (el.length < 1)
el = $("[id$=_" + id + "]", context);
return el;



Or if I want to be specific about the container:

1) Using Jquery Intellisense in Page

<script src=”” type=”text/javascript”&gt;

<script src=”” type=”text/javascript”&gt;

You can get the latest version from here:

2) Using Jquery Intellisense in External Javscript files

1)      Download Latest Jquery files and its related vsdoc file.

For ex:

Jquery Files:  jquery-1.3.2.js

Vsdoc File:  Jquery-1.3.2-vsdoc.js

2)   Include both files in your project directory

3)   Open your external javascript file in which you want intellisense

Drag the   Jquery-1.3.2-vsdoc.js file on the first line at top of external file.

It will be displayed as below:

/// <reference path=”jquery-1.3.2-vsdoc2.js” />

That’s it you can now use intellisense in that file. To test whether it is working or not you can type $( and you should be presented with documentation.

Note: jQuery and the documentation file need to be named the same with the exception that the documentation file end with -vsdoc.js

Age Calculation from Date of Birth Using Javascript/Jquery

August 2, 2010 3 comments

Many times we want to allow users to enter site only if they are of 18 years of age, or while registering we ask DOB and we need to calculate their age if they are eligible or not. Here is the javascript function to calculate age based on DOB.

Method 1:

<script type="text/javascript">
	function CalAge() {

    var now = new Date();
    var mm = document.getElementById('ddlmnths').value;
    var ddr = document.getElementById('ddldays');
    var dd = ddr.options[ddr.selectedIndex].value;
    var yy = document.getElementById('ddlyrs').value;
    bDay = dd + "/" + mm + "/" + yy;
    bD = bDay.split('/');
   	    if (bD.length == 3) {
        	   born = new Date(bD[2], bD[1] * 1 - 1, bD[0]);
                 years = Math.floor((now.getTime() - born.getTime()) / (365.25 * 24 * 60 * 60 * 1000));
        if (years < 18) {
            alert(“You are not eligible”);

        else if (years = 18 || years > 18) {

Method 2 :

<script type="text/javascript">

     function CalAge() {
     var dd = $("#ddldays").val();
     var mm = $("#ddlmnths").val();
     var yy = $("#ddlyrs").val();
     var age = 18;

     var mydate = new Date();
     mydate.setFullYear(yy, mm-1, dd);

     var currdate = new Date();
     currdate.setFullYear(currdate.getFullYear() - age);
     if ((currdate - mydate) < 0){
     alert(“You are not eligible”);
