A four function calculator (HTML)

 
0
 

Here we use the eval() function as the backbone of a simple calculator. One table is used for the display. A second table holds the buttons for the keypad. The whole thing forms an attractive looking calculator. To test it, simply paste the code into an editor like notepad and save it as Calculator.htm then run it in your browser.

<!-- experiments with table & button-input  vegaseat  2/13/02 -->
<!-- table, border, cellpadding, cellspacing, input, onClick -->
<!-- uses eval() to do the final calculation -->
<!-- note: eval() traps divide by zero error -->

I'm very very new to all this, but I'm having fun learning. I like the calculator, is there a way to make it round up to only 2 decimals? Please be very detailed - remember I'm very new.

Thanks

Damn good, I have only one possible idea
calclualtors usually are right justified, the digits extend from the right
so for the input containing the number <input style='text-align:right;' type="text" size="25" length="25" value="" name="ans" style="background:beige;color:black;">

the only change I think to to make is in the display,
calculators typically fill from right to left as you punch numbers so

<input style='text-align:right;' type="text" size="25" length="25" value="" name="ans" style='text-align:right;background:beige;color:black;'>

Awesome! can we make this calculator only with the help of html?

not only html, javascript to do the crunching,
innoccuous javascript,
but some users have all javascripting disabled as a security issue.

Hi, I'm looking for html codes to calculate a date. For example, in excel i can have a date that says 8/06/11. I want to calculate 90 days from that date. in excel the formula would be =A1+90, which will equal 11/04/11.

I have it PHP:

$today = date("Y-m-d");// current date
$tomorrow = strtotime(date("Y-m-d", strtotime($today)) . " +1000 day");
$output = date("Y-m-d", $tomorrow);

I need it in HTML.


please help!!!!!

Please don't bring up old threads. Ask in the PHP section.
