Add or Remove Dynamic Textbox Using jQuery

In this article you will learn how to add or remove a dynamic textbox using jQuery.

Abstraction

Many new developers encounter a situation where there is a need to add dynamic control on the client side. This article will help them to understand how to add dynamic control on the client side using jQuery. Here I have described it using a step-by-step approach.

Initial chamber

Step 1

Open Visual Studio and create an empty website, provide a suitable name such as AddDynamicTextBox.

Step 2

In Solution Explorer you will get your empty website. Then add web forms.

For Web Form

AddDynamicTextBox (your empty website). Right-click and select Add New Item, then Web Form. Name it AddDynamicTextBox.aspx.

Design chamber

Step 3

Open AddDynamicTextBox.aspx file and write some code for the design of the application.

First add the jQuery plugin to your head section. Here I have used jquery-1.10.2.js plugin for demonstration purposes.

How to add in your page

  1. <script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.10.2.js"></script>  
Write some script for add or remove as in the following:
  1. <script type="text/javascript">  
  2.     $(document).ready(function () {  
  3.         $('#add').click(function () {  
  4.             var table = $(this).closest('table');  
  5.             console.log(table.find('input:text').length);  
  6.             if (table.find('input:text').length < 50) {  
  7.                 var x = $(this).closest('tr').nextAll('tr');  
  8.                 $.each(x, function (i, val) {  
  9.                     val.remove();  
  10.                 });  
  11.                 table.append('<tr><td style="width:200px;" align="right">First Name <td> <input type="text" id="current Name" value="" /> </td><td style="width:200px;" align="right">Last Name <td> <input type="text" id="current Name" value="" /> </td></tr>');  
  12.                 $.each(x, function (i, val) {  
  13.                     table.append(val);  
  14.                 });  
  15.             }  
  16.         });  
  17.         $('#del').click(function () {  
  18.             var table = $(this).closest('table');  
  19.             if (table.find('input:text').length > 1) {  
  20.                 table.find('input:text').last().closest('tr').remove();  
  21.             }  
  22.         });  
  23.     });  
  24. </script>  
Add HTML on your page and your page will look like the following:
  1. <div>  
  2.     <table border="0" cellspacing="2">  
  3.         <tr>  
  4.             <td style="width: 200px;" align="right">Name  
  5.     <td>  
  6.         <input type="text" id="Job Name" value="" />  
  7.     </td>  
  8.             </td>  
  9.         </tr>  
  10.         <tr>  
  11.             <td align="right">Versions</td>  
  12.             <td>  
  13.                 <select id="version" style="width: 350px;">  
  14.                     <option value="">SELECT</option>  
  15.                 </select>  
  16.             </td>  
  17.         </tr>  
  18.         <tr>  
  19.             <td align="right">Test Scripts</td>  
  20.             <td>  
  21.                 <select id="testscripts" style="width: 350px;"></select>  
  22.             </td>  
  23.         </tr>  
  24.         <tr>  
  25.             <td align="right">datas</td>  
  26.             <td>  
  27.                 <input type="button" id="add" value="Add" />  
  28.                 <input type="button" id="del" value="Del" />  
  29.             </td>  
  30.         </tr>  
  31.         <tr>  
  32.             <td style="height: 3px" colspan="2"></td>  
  33.         </tr>  
  34.   
  35.   
  36.   
  37.     </table>  
  38. </div>  
Now your code looks as in the following:

Now your page looks as in the following.

In the code behind page, there is no need to write something here because I've provided everything from the front end.

AddDynamicTextBox.aspx.cs
  1. using System;  
  2. using System.Collections.Generic;  
  3. using System.Linq;  
  4. using System.Web;  
  5. using System.Web.UI;  
  6. using System.Web.UI.WebControls;  
  7.   
  8. public partial class AddDynamicTextBox : System.Web.UI.Page  
  9. {  
  10.     protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)  
  11.     {  
  12.   
  13.     }
