Hi Experts :)

I am trying ot use the JQuery 5-Star Rating Plugin
http://www.fyneworks.com/jquery/star-rating/#tab-Testing

Everything goes just fine besides one thing. I want to click "Read Rating From DB" button, check the DB and present the new value using a star-rater that is already there (ex. change the rating from 3 to 5).

I don't know how to dynamically create/change the stars value. Has anyone managed to do that?

Hope to see some help here :),

<input name="star2" type="radio" class="star"/> 
<input name="star2" type="radio" class="star"/>

Use javascript to call something like the following to select the 3rd star (0 is the first star).

$('rating selector').rating('select', 2);

Hi pedro_sland,

If I do that the value is sent to DB using predefined callback function.

The easiest way would be to have a global variable that is set to true before the 'select' is manually called and then ignore it in the callback function and reset the global variable to eg false.
