So i have this code:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Test</title>
</head>
<body>
<form name="formtab1" id="formtab1">
  <select name="ZoneDropdown" id="ZoneDropdown" onchange="DisplayFormValues()" class="dropdown">
    <option value="" title="">Please Select</option>
    <option value="BLP" title="POLOB" price="5.0000">BLP</option>
  </select>
  <select name="LogoDropdown" id="LogoDropdown" onchange="DisplayFormValues()" class="dropdown">
    <option value="vv" title="tester" price="2.0000">Please Select</option>
    <option value="BLP" title="POLO" price="5.0000">BACK</option>
  </select>
  <input id="AddEmb" name="AddEmb" type="text" />
</form>
<script type="text/javascript">
function DisplayFormValues() { var str = '';
var elem = document.getElementById('formtab1').elements;
for(var i = 0; i < elem.length; i++) { str += elem[i].value };       <----------- I need elem[i].price not value |
		document.getElementById('AddEmb').value = str;
}

function on()
   {
   var w = document.formtab1.ZoneDropdown.selectedIndex;
   var selected_text = document.formtab1.ZoneDropdown[document.formtab1.ZoneDropdown.selectedIndex].getAttribute('price');
   alert(selected_text);
   }
</script>
</body>
</html>

Open in new window


I have multiple dropdowns, mu goal is to sum up the Custom Attribute "Price". But i cannot get the attribute to pull up the value. While example function "on" works. When i do it inside a loop it fails.

I tried:
 elem[i].price, elem[i].getAttribute('price') 

Open in new window

and a bunch of things but nothing worked for me.

Thanks

better(?) :  parseFloat(    elem[i].getAttribute("price")     );

[code]use : elem[i].getAttribute("price");[/code]

I tried this in this

[code]for(var i = 0; i < elem.length; i++) { str += elem[i].value };[/code]

But the result not good. My whole goal in this loop is instead of
[code] elem[i].value [/code]

to get the Custom Atribute price.

You said : mu goal is to sum up the Custom Attribute "Price"

So :


str = 0;
for(var i = 0; i < elem.length; i++) { str += elem[i].getAttribute("price"); };

Or better(?) :


str = 0;
for(var i = 0; i < elem.length; i++) { str += parseFloat(elem[i].getAttribute("price")); };

[code]
function DisplayFormValues() { var str = '0';
var elem = document.getElementById('formtab1').elements;
str = 0;
for(var i = 0; i < elem.length; i++) { str += parseFloat(elem[i].getAttribute("price")); };
document.getElementById('AddEmb').value = str;
}
[/code]

This code gives me "NaN" when testing.

[code]
function DisplayFormValues() { var str = '0';
var elem = document.getElementById('formtab1').elements;
str = 0;
for(var i = 0; i < elem.length; i++) { str += elem[i].getAttribute("price"); };
document.getElementById('AddEmb').value = str;
}
[/code]

This code gives me "0"

Am i doing something wrong?

Thanks
