I have a page with multiple ULs and I need to be able to re-order them.

My current code which is working sorting the page, but doesn't write to the database is as follows:

<script type="text/javascript">
function updateOrder(){
  var options = {
    method : 'post',
    parameters : Sortable.serialize('item_list<%=RScat.Fields.Item("subCatID").Value %>')
  };
new Ajax.Request('order-update.asp', options);
}
</script>
<ul id="item_list161">
        <li class="clearfix" id="item_2497" style="cursor:pointer;">name</li>
        <li class="clearfix" id="item_2498" style="cursor:pointer;">name2</li>
</ul>
<script type="text/javascript">
  Sortable.create('item_list161', {constraint:'vertical', onUpdate : updateOrder});
</script>

<script type="text/javascript">
function updateOrder(){
  var options = {
    method : 'post',
    parameters : Sortable.serialize('item_list<%=RScat.Fields.Item("subCatID").Value %>')
  };
new Ajax.Request('order-update.asp', options);
}
</script>
<ul id="item_list162">
        <li class="clearfix" id="item_2597" style="cursor:pointer;">name</li>
        <li class="clearfix" id="item_2598" style="cursor:pointer;">name2</li>
</ul>
<script type="text/javascript">
  Sortable.create('item_list162', {constraint:'vertical', onUpdate : updateOrder});
</script>

I have several of these on the page, what I don't know how to do is pass the <%=RScat.Fields.Item("subCatID").Value %> to the order-update.asp page so that each list can be uniquely updated.

The order-update.asp page is as follows:

<%
Dim myString, myArray
myString = Request("item_list[]") 'get the string/list by Request
myArray = Split(myString, ",") 'split the string at commas and put in array

Set objConn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
objConn.Open MM_bath_STRING

'loop through the array of items
For i=0 to UBound(myArray)
objConn.Execute("UPDATE products SET [productOrder]="&(i+1)&" WHERE productID="&trim(myArray(i))) 'update record
Next

objConn.Close
Set objConn = Nothing
%>

Thanks

Couldn't you pass it in the querystring and then handle it in order-update.asp?

new Ajax.Request('order-update.asp?subCatID=<%=RScat.Fields.Item("subCatID").Value %>', options);
