Hello i just want to ask you guys if you can help me with this problem: I need to write an javascript that writes out chess board like table, and that table must include onclick function that changes background color of that cell that is clicked on. I would really appreciate any help. This is what i got so far:

<html>
    <head>
        <title>Vaja 6.2</title>
        <style type="text/css"> 
            #table tr:nth-child(even) td:nth-child(odd),
            #table tr:nth-child(odd) td:nth-child(even)
            {
                background-color: green;
            }
            </style>
        <script type="text/javascript">

            function enterSize()
                {
                x=prompt("Enter width:")
                y=prompt("Enter height:")
                
                for(var i=0; i<x; i++)
                {
                    document.write("<table id=table border=1 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0>")
                    document.write(" <tr>")
                    
                    for (var j=0; j<y; j++)
                    {
                        
                        document.write(" <td width=40 height=40>")
                        document.write(" </td>")
                         
                    }
                    document.write(" </tr>")
                    document.write("</table>")                }

    
            }
            </script>
    </head>
    <body >
        <div><script>
            enterSize();
            </script></div>

        
    </body>
</html>

Thanks

Is there anyway you can help me with code? I never used jquery before. Thanks in advance.

jQuery is not hard to learn (Tutorials and download: http://jquery.com/).
Look into some tutorials, and see what works out and where the problems come up, I'll be able to help you with that.

The ID generation in the code can be done like this:

for (var j=0; j<y; j++)
                    {
                        
                        document.write(" <td width=40 height=40 id='"+i*x+j+"'>")
                        document.write(" </td>")
                         
                    }

OK, modified it a bit:

<html>
    <head>
        <title>Vaja 6.2</title>
        <script type="text/javascript">

            function enterSize()
                {
                x=prompt("Enter width:")
                y=prompt("Enter height:")
                
                for(var i=0; i<x; i++)
                {
                    document.write("<table id=table border=1 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0>")
                    document.write(" <tr>")
                    
                    for (var j=0; j<y; j++)
                    {
                        document.write(" <td width=40 height=40 class='cell' id='cell" + (i*x+j) + "'>")

Please start thinking a little for yourself. I'm sure you could have managed to think of this yourself.

Yeah i did, but that doesn't get through my brain :D Sorry look what happens if you input y bigger than x... Thanks for this tho

if ((i+j) %2 == 0)
						$('#cell'+(i*x+j)).css('backgroundColor', '#0F0');

In the above code I check for i+j%2 == 0. This is only valid for situations with a square board, or a board with x=k*2+y, where k is any whole number.

Think of something yourself that is valid for any y, probably a bit harder, but definately manageble I think.

I went like this now. But one huge problem is, that when i click green box it goes first grey and then red and then grey again. I would have to do that it would go green-red-green and grey-red-grey. I hope someone would help me thanks in advance.

Code:

        <script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.js"></script>

            function zamenjaj(sivo) {
                if ((sivo.style.backgroundColor == "") || (sivo.style.backgroundColor == ""))
                {
                    sivo.style.backgroundColor = "red";
                }
                else
                {
                    sivo.style.backgroundColor = "";
                }
                
            }
            
            
            
            function vpisVelikosti()
                {
                x=prompt("Vnesi stevilo dolžino:")
                y=prompt("Vnesi stevilo širino:")
                
                for(var i=0; i<x; i++)
                {
                    document.write("<table border=0  cellpadding=1 cellspacing=1>")
                    document.write(" <tr>")

                    for (var j=0; j<y; j++)
                    {
                        document.write("<td width=40 height=40 class='cell' bgcolor=grey id='cell" + (i*x+j) + "' onclick=zamenjaj(this)>")
                        document.write(" </td>")
                    }
                    document.write(" </tr>")
                    document.write("</table>")                
                }

Formulate the problem.

What do you have, what do you want, so what needs to change. Change exactly that...

I tried to change value of:

function zamenjaj(sivo) {
                if ((sivo.style.backgroundColor == "") || (sivo.style.backgroundColor == ""))
                {
                    sivo.style.backgroundColor = "red";
                }
                else
                {
                    sivo.style.backgroundColor = "";
                }
                
            }

but it seems that this bgcolor has to do something with that.

document.write("<td width=40 height=40 class='cell' bgcolor=grey id='cell" + (i*x+j) + "' onclick=zamenjaj(this)>")

I think I would have to do something different with bgcolors... Please help. Thanks

OK, you are now mixing three different types of changing the background colour.

- In the HTML, (bgcolor=grey)
- In the jQuery ($('#cell'+(i*x+j)).css('backgroundColor', '#0F0');)
- In your method (sivo.style.backgroundColor = "red";)

I would stick to either plain CSS, jQuery(using $(*).css(), your Javascript (using *.style.*), or HTML. The easiest for the things you want is still jQuery, but plain Javascript you type yourself will also work.
Anyway, I'd definately leave out the HTML, and code that part in CSS.

I know you want to be helpful but this doesn't help me :) its ok, will have to search something different. thanks.

I do want to help you, but what I am also saying is that if I put down all the code you need, you are not going to learn anything, because the next time you run into this problem, you still won't know the answer...

If you think this thread is finished, please mark it as solved!

No its not that, i don't know whats causing that problem... this is the real problem :S sorry but that thread is far from solved :S

Like I was saying, you are manipulating the background in three different ways.

Choose 1 of them, so it will not become confusing. Then, think about what you want to change, because that will become very easy.

Please help me, I can't figure it out. Im siting like 2h behind this and nothing. I know I have to learn it... but i will through your help. thanks

OK, lets go through it.

<html>
    <head>
        <title>Vaja 6.2</title>
        <style>
			.cell {
				background-color: #000;
			}
		</style>
        <script type="text/javascript">

            function enterSize()
                {
                x=prompt("Enter width:")
                y=prompt("Enter height:")
                
                for(var i=0; i<x; i++)
                {
                    document.write("<table id=table border=1 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0>")
                    document.write(" <tr>")
                    
                    for (var j=0; j<y; j++)
                    {
						var maxVal = x>y ? x : y;
                        document.write(" <td width=40 height=40 class='cell' id='cell" + (i*maxVal+j) + "'>")
                        document.write(" </td>")
                    }
                    document.write(" </tr>")
                    document.write("</table>")                }

    
            }
            </script>
            <script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.js"></script>
    </head>
    <body >
        <div><script>
            enterSize();
			var maxVal = x>y ? x : y;
			for (var i=0; i<x; i++) {
				for (var j=0; j<y; j++) {
					if ((i+j) %2 == 0)
						$('#cell'+(i*maxVal+j)).css('background-color', '#0F0');
					else
					$('#cell'+(i*maxVal+j)).css('background-color', '#FFF');
				}
			}
			$('.cell').click(function () {
				if ($(this).css('background-color') == 'rgb(0, 255, 0)')
					$(this).css ('backgroundColor', 'rgb(255, 0, 0)');
				else if ($(this).css('background-color') == 'rgb(255, 0, 0)')
					$(this).css ('backgroundColor', 'rgb(0, 255, 0)');
				else if ($(this).css('background-color') == 'rgb(255, 255, 255)')
					$(this).css ('backgroundColor', 'rgb(0, 0, 0)');
				else if ($(this).css('background-color') == 'rgb(0, 0, 0)')
					$(this).css ('backgroundColor', 'rgb(255, 255, 255)');
			});
            </script></div>
    </body>
</html>

What have I done:
- I made a maxVal for the problem with all the squares when y was bigger than x, and used that instead.
- I used jQuery for handling the clicks. The css function returns an rgb string, so you have to use that.

If you want to write some javascript yourself, go ahead, I like this.
Also, I reccommend trying to understand what I have done. Maybe you will learn something from it?
