# Combining Two Or More Text Drop Down Boxes To Calculate A Price?

Dec 13, 2011

I'm creating an online enrolment form for my company, who are a training company. Users enrolling on the course must make three choices - The level of course, the size of course and whether they wish to attend a workshop or study by distance learning. The combination of these three factors will determine the price. I'd like to have the price automatically calculated using javascript and displayed on the form before they submit. Can anyone give me an idea of how to do this?There are three drop down boxes for users to select their course. They are: -

Level of Qualification:
Level 3
Level 4

## Calculate Subtotal - Tax And Total Using Multiple Text Boxes

Apr 15, 2009

I am trying to simulate a simple checkout page where a user inputs the quantity of merchandise that they want in multiple text boxes. When they click "calculate" it calculates the subtotal, tax, and total. As it stands my calculate function works if I do quantity * price for each text box and then add together. I would have to do this 9 times! :eek: I would like to use an array but I am not exactly sure how to use it to do calculations. I know I need a loop (which I have written) and an array (which is written also).

## Program To Calculate Price With Sales Tax?

Oct 8, 2011

When I compile this I get no errors, however when I try to run it, it does not work. What should happen, is an output dialog box should appear saying the total for tickets, total tax, and total for tickets with tax. This is not what happens. This is what I have written: This program will ask for the number of tickets you wish purchase. It will then calculate the total price of the tickets and the 9.5% sales tax.

import javax.swing.JOptionPane;
public class TicketCost {
Constants
static final double TICKET_PRICE = 10.00;
static final double TAX = .095;
public static void main (String [] args) {
Local variables
int Nbr_Tickets = 0;
double Tax = 0;
double Total = 0;
String InputStr;
String outputMsg;
InputStr = JOptionPane.showInputDialog
("Enter the number of tickets to purchase");
Nbr_Tickets = Integer.parseInt(InputStr);

Calculation
Nbr_Tickets = (int)(Nbr_Tickets * TICKET_PRICE);
Tax = Nbr_Tickets * TAX;
Total = Nbr_Tickets + Tax;

Created message
outputMsg = "cost of tickets: \$"
+ String.format("%.2f", Nbr_Tickets)
+ "Taxes: \$"
+ String.format("%.2f", Tax)
+ "Total cost of tickets to A Beautiful Mind: \$"
+ String.format("%.2f", Total);
output message
JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null,outputMsg,"Total cost of tickets to A beautiful Mind",JOptionPane.INFORMATION_MESSAGE);
System.exit(0);
}}

And when I run it this is what I get:
----jGRASP exec: java TicketCost
Exception in thread "main" java.util.IllegalFormatConversionException: f != java.lang.Integer
at java.util.Formatter\$FormatSpecifier.failConversion(Formatter.java:4045)

----jGRASP wedge2: exit code for process is 1.
----jGRASP: operation complete.

## Calculate Total Price In Added Tablerow

Sep 12, 2010

i have a table inside a form, with input fields ( price, qty, desc, total ( to be updated ), this works as it should with the following javascript:

<script type="text/javascript"><!--
document.forms['hours'].elements['onktotal[]'].value = (document.forms['hours'].elements['onkqty[]'].value.replace(",", ".") -0) * (document.forms['hours'].elements['onkprice[]'].value.replace(",", ".") -0);
}
//-->
</script>

now the problem occurs when i put more rows there then the javascript function does not work anymore, my ultimate goal is to create a function to add tablerows with javascript, but i'm trying to create the update function with a static situation first.

## Calculate Checkbox And Drop Down Values?

Oct 19, 2009

I have the following code working with the checkbox options but once I added a drop down menu with values, it doesn't calculate it. I've done some different things to try to add the drop down to the function but nothing would work that I've tried so far.

I have it setup so when a box is unchecked, that option is taken off the price, the drop down should do the same to switch between the options price.

## Total Price To Be In DIV And Not Input Type Text

Dec 5, 2010

Firstly, I got this script which gets values and automatically calculates it and shows result.
Script:
<script type="text/javascript">
function calculate(f){
var prod=Number(f['users'].value);
var quan=Number(f['months'].value);
var tot=prod*quan;
f['total'].value=tot==0?'':tot.toFixed(2);
}
</script>
<ul><li class="bold">Users</li>
<li>
<select name="users" onchange="calculate(this.form)" id="users">
<option value='1'>1</option>
<option value='2'>2</option>
</select>
</li></ul>
<ul><li class="bold">Period</li><li>
<select name="months" onchange="calculate(this.form)" id="months">
<option value=''>Select Months</option>
<option value='1'>1 Month</option>
<option value='2'>2 Months</option>
</select></li></ul>

What I'm trying to make is, the total, to be in a div and not input type text
Something like <div id="total"></div>
I don't like because it shows in form, I want it directly. One more thing, is possible to make the default price 0.00 ? and when selecting automatically changes to price..

## Drop Down Boxes

Jan 15, 2002

I want to have a bracket page, so you can chose from two options, and then two chosen people are paried to face off... espn.com has a bracket for the sexiest athlete right now - something like that. What I want is drop down box 1A to have two options. When one option is chosen, it is added to box 2A. The user would also chose one of two options from 1B. That choice would also be added to 2A. Then I need this to recursively work for N number of rounds, and the total to start would be 2^N.

Aug 16, 2010

I'm trying to create a drop down menu with four different boxes. The site I'm working on is basically an ecommerce site, so I'll use cars as a good example for what I want to do.

Let's say that I'm selling cars and want to target the buyer directly, then I would have the following boxes, each one serving as a dependent of the one before it:

1. Pick the brand (BMW, Mercedes, Etc.)

2. Pick the type of car (Sports car, SUV, Mini Van, etc.)

3. Pick the color (blue, green, etc.)

4. Pick the price (\$0-\$19,999/\$19,999-29,999/etc.)

So far I have the first two boxes down by using the following site: [URL]. Now my problem is that the site only allows for the first two boxes to be made, and says that

"the values in box1 are static and printed directly as normal HTML. The corresponding box2 options will also be copied into the HTML as well as the javascript for full functionality."

Being a complete newbie, I have no idea what this means. So I decided to search the internet for an answer and was not able to find one, thus leading me here, which from the looks of it seems like a great forum.

how to connect a third and fourth box that falls into the same hierarchy as the first and the second then I would appreciate.

## Close Parent Window - Make The Scroll Bars And Drop Down Boxes Not Trigger The Function?

Jan 4, 2011

Ok so I have a site that I want to automatically close the window when the focus is lost from the page. For example, if the user clicks off the page to something else on there desktop I want the page to close.

## Regular Expression Error In Internet Explorer - Drop Down Boxes Dont Seem To Be Recognised For RegEx In I.E?

Aug 30, 2011

I seem to have come across a weird issue in internet explorer.I've been working on doing regular expressions for a register form, and I've checked it in Firefox, and Chrome and it seems to work for both of them but yet it doesn't work for Internext Explorer 6 - 8.The issue is that the drop down boxes (select fields) dont seem to be recognised for RegEx in I.E. this is causing an issue for me as I want it to work in ALL common web browers as well as keeping the whole form standard.

I've pasted a snippet of code below to show you what I've done.This one below is the original one which just checks if the field entry is blank

function check(theForm)
{
var checker;[code]...

If you have any Ideas about what I can do to make it work in I.E. I would be most greatful. Also if anyone knows how to do and RegEx on a checkbox that would help me quite a bit too.
