Re: [Proto-Scripty] Variables in $$() ????? David Behler Sat Sep 25 06:00:20 2010

 What about this:

$$("input[type=radio][name='type'][value='" + selectThis + "']")

?

Jonathan,
Thanks for that but like most things in the prototype documentation, it lacks the type of clarity that I can understand. IOW, I can read the documentation, scratch my head and say huh? I leave that documentation thinking "this might be what I need but have no clue as to how to implement that to solve my problem." Which is exactly what happened here... OK, I need to use templates to somehow sprintf the string constant into a direct value but huh?

    You're passing a string constant to $$

'selectThis' will not be evaluated, as you seem to be expecting. Have a loook at Tenplate to do what you want:

        I've hit this in two seperate places and not exactly sure why...
        (I think its the 18 hour days, 7 days a week... <g>)
        If "value" is hard set with '3' the following works:
        
$$("input[type=radio][name='type'][value='3']")[0].writeAttribute("checked",
        "checked");
        However, if we use a variable (selectThis) and assign it "3"
        it does not work.
        var selectThis;
        selectThis = '3';
        
$$("input[type=radio][name='type'][value=selectThis]")[0].writeAttribute("checked",
        "checked");
        Type casting doesn't work either:
        var selectThis;
        selectThis = String('3');
        
$$("input[type=radio][name='type'][value=selectThis]")[0].writeAttribute("checked",
        "checked");
        I'm having the same problem here too (compare o.value== 'GA'
        and the select gets set to GA):
        selectThis = 'GA'
        $$('select#ajstate option').each(function(o){
            if(o.value==selectThis){o.selected = true;$break;}
        });
        What am I missing here?
