Hi Experts

Is it possible to change the source of an image based on what is chosen in a list menu? below is a snippet of code showing an image with an ID that needs it's source changed depending one if 1,2 or 3 is chosen in the list/menu.

Thanks for you time
<img src="images/getNameFromWhatIsSelectedInDropMenu.png" width="340" height="187" id="price-rise-overlay">
    <p>
        <label for="tfa_selectacolour">list1</label>
        <br>
        <select name="colourList" class="calc-colour" id="tfa_selectacolour">
            <option value="10" id="grey">item1</option>
            <option value="11" id="green">item3</option>
            <option value="12" id="cream">item2</option>
        </select>
    </p>

Try the code below:
<script type="text/javascript">
	function changeImg(val){
		if(val==10){document.getElementById('price-rise-overlay').src="/image/1.jpg"};
		if(val==11){document.getElementById('price-rise-overlay').src="/image/2.jpg"};
		if(val==12){document.getElementById('price-rise-overlay').src="/image/3.jpg"};			
	
	}
</script>
 
 
<img src="/assets/images/404.gif" width="340" height="187" id="price-rise-overlay">
    <p>
        <label for="tfa_selectacolour">list1</label>
        <br>
        <select name="colourList" class="calc-colour" id="tfa_selectacolour" onchange="changeImg(this.value)">
            <option  value="10" id="grey">item1</option>
            <option  value="11" id="green">item3</option>
            <option  value="12" id="cream">item2</option>
        </select>
    </p>

        <br>
        <select name="colourList" class="calc-colour" id="tfa_selectacolour" onchange="javascript:changeopt(this);">
            <option value="0" id="1st">-- Select --</option>
            <option value="10" id="grey">item1</option>
            <option value="11" id="green">item3</option>
            <option value="12" id="cream">item2</option>
        </select>
    </p>
</form>
<script>
function changeopt(obj){
 
 var objImg=document.getElementById('price-rise-overlay');

 switch(parseInt(obj.value)){
   case 10:objImg.src='images/item1.png';break;
   case 11:objImg.src='images/item3.png';break;

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hi Tomarse111

I know you have answered this questions already... but is it possible to target the id of the select menu item?

I changed onchange="changeImg(this.value)" to onchange="changeImg(this.id)" but it didn't seem to work.

Thanks for your time.

Not quite sure what you mean sorry. Why would you want to target the ID of each option? What are you trying to do?

this is actually on a dynamic site. the id of the select option will only come from a pool of 3 options - but the value (at the moment) comes from a pool of 16.

Just trying to write less code, and code for the future, and have values inserted into the script dynamically
