I know that normally you can get the selected value of a select list by using :selected. But in my scenerio I have a number of rows in my table that are added dynamically and the inputs all have prefixes through which I select them. But once I select them I'm not quite sure how to get to the values of the select list. Here's what I have already and I get undefined for the list value.[code]...
If I instead do this I get the correct value but it's not specifying the list to get the value from so I'm afraid that if I have more than 1 select list it might get the value from the wrong list.[code]...
I have a page that displays a list of people playing in a tournament. I need to be able to generate a Leaderboard based on which players are manually selected by the admin. Next to each person there is a drop-down list. An admin can go in and select a "slot" that a player should be in on the leader board from 1 to 8, or leave it blank if none. What I need to figure out how to do is the following, when a change event happens on a drop-down list, and say the value 5 is selected, I need to check to make sure that 5 is not already selected in one of the other players drop-down lists, in other words, that the 5th leaderboard slot is not already full. if it is, display an error message and make them change that one first. how to do that with jQuery? I'm thinking it will have something to do with the each() function, but not sure exactly how the logic should work.
I have a MySQL table with 90 columns and I want the users to be able to select any columns they concern and output the result accordingly. In the front-end, I can use a group of checkbox which looks very ugly and I can not setup the orders for selected columns. Is there a plug-in or some examples in jQuery, that I can make 2 parallel boxes (i.e. an original-box and a selected-box). the original- box lists all of the column names at the beginning and there is a way to move items between two boxes. And the order of items in the selected-box can be adjusted. the items in the selected-box will be used to build into an array in my backend code.
I've been beating my head against a wall for a few days trying to get this working. I'm trying to create a dynamic menu where a user selects one item and another select list is shown, then another and another (and so on). Here is my JS, it *should* be taking the ID of the div, comparing it to the selected value and then showing another div by settings it's class property to visible:
I have got a basic Unordered list of Options and I want to be able to click on one of the options and have that option added as a value to a Form Value Input on my submit form.Users will have a choice of around 200 options and I need them to just add one of them with a click to the submit form.I do not want to use a 'select' box to list the options,it has to be a visiable unordered list.
I have an unique requirement that needs to be able to click and move between two lists.Each list is compose of an outer <div> and several inner <div>s. When user click on one of the inner div item, it will move from one list to another. To make more sense:
I have a multiple select list <select id=mylist name=mylist> <option id=1>first</option> <option id=2>second</option> <option id=3>third</option> <option id=4>fourth</option> <option id=5>fifth</option> </select>
Then I have a string of id's that I want to set to selected like so. var selectedIds = '1,3,5'; Is it possible to use jquery (preferably in a one liner) to set first, third and fifth to selected.?
How I populate fields of a form with the data that relates to an item from a list box that user selects Example: List box contains item1, item2, item3 User selects item2 so want data connected to item2 displayed so it can be edited and updated.
I have a simple select list and all I need to do is to feed whatever option is selected into a textfield above it.This works fine in FF but IE doesn't even recognise the click.If you vist http:[url]....and go to the bottom of the page, you'll see the silver color background select list.The "type of event" text field above is supposed to recieve the text of the option set in the select list.I have experimented with 2 bits of code, as follows:
Im using a plugin called select chain and modified it a bit. Right now im trying to pass only selected values of a multi select list through ajax. The following function does a bit more but im concerned with the part that says cust_val: customer.val().join(",") This should return only selected values. This is what happens if i put it in an alert(). however when i check firebug to see what was posted it shows the entire list. I've tried alternatives like option:selected.... they all work for aler() .. the info passed through ajax shows the entire list.
When using a select combo box that has multiple selections enabled, my server was not seeing it as an array. It was only seeing it as a single variable value. All I did to correct this was add  and the end of the name attribute. Ex. [code]<select name="categories" id="categories" multiple="multiple" size="4">[/code] Now my LAMP server sees this variable as an array in the $_REQUEST
I have a select list that is populated from a mysql DB with 3 names in it. I've created buttons to allow my users to move the names up or down inside the select list.
I'd like to put a save button at the bottom of the form that when clicked, runs a jquery function to read each value of the list and put them into a hidden tag or something that gets submitted to my next form.
I've been trying different combo's of items I've found on the internet, but nothing seems to work for my application.
I have a select list #technology. Due to some back end processing it's default value is "0" (Please Select) I am trying to write a validation rule to make it required. The problem I'm having is that if you hit submit when it shows "Please Select" which has the value="0" then make a different selection it's not removing the error msg. Also if you hit submit multiple times when it is showing Please Select it just keeps adding the error msg
It will be included on the pages in the list and I'd like the list to remember the last selected (showing the user what page in the list they're on). I can't figure out how (other than manually doing it on every page).
The other thing is that the + and - buttons change the item selected for ALL select lists on a page, it's pretty cool but not what I'd like it to do. You can see it working on [URL]..
Simple form which includes a drop down list of users obtained from a database which is displayed using a form select entry with options for each entry. problem is, the list can be quite long, upwards of several hundred.
In PHP, I added a filter box (text box) which the visitor can enter in a substring that is then used to obtain and display only matching entries. Works great, but it needs to reload the page to do its thing.
I've been told that jQuery can be used to do the same thing without having to reload the whole page.
The filter box would be used to call an existing PHP script which obtains the names based on the filtered string. I can change this script to output the data in any format necessary including raw format to full option formatted strings.
how to set this up so that it gets called and replaces the current option content.
