Mvc Listbox Click Event in jQuery

Hello

I have used the Html.ListBox helper to generate a <select> list in my view like so:

<%= Html.ListBox("MaterialTypesList", Model.MaterialsList, new { @class = "StockListBox", SelectionMode="Single"})%>

Open in new window


in jQuery I have attached an event handler (not on the change event but the click event) to capture the value of the clicked item to proceed with it:

           
$("#MaterialTypesList").click(MaterialsList_Changed);

Open in new window


However, each time I click a value, it does not correspond, and the first click is not taken into account:

function MaterialsList_Changed()
            {
                $("#ModelsList > option").remove();

                var materialId = $("#MaterialTypesList option:selected").val();
                alert(materialId);
                $.post("http://localhost/" + virtualPath + "/Stock/LoadBrands/" + materialId, null, function (data)
                {
                    data = $.map(data, function (item, a)
                    {
                        return "<option value=" + item.Value + ">" + item.Text + "</option>";
                    });

                    $("#BrandsList").html(data.join(""));
                });
            }

Open in new window


My questions:

1) why doesn't this work, it looks like it should be easy simple
2) why does the html attribute SelectionMode on the Listbox not work ?

thx !

-- use change event
http://api.jquery.com/change/

-- also are you sure that id is MaterialTypesList only,

-- try the class selector
$(".StockListBox").change(MaterialsList_Changed);

-- last but not the least, put this code inside document ready event handler

$(document).ready(function(){
  $(".StockListBox").change(function(){
MaterialsList_Changed()
});
});

Hello

I have used everything that's in your code, and I cannot use the change event - I already discussed this in another issue, it must be the click event.

It always has worked using a normal <select> tag, but now I'm using the HtmlHelper to generate a listbox and nothing works anymore....

To add some more information:

I made a difference between the working select list (hand typed) and the Html.ListBox helper method (which I prefer of course).

The main difference is that the attribute multiple="multiple" makes things crash in my case.

How can I use the Html.ListBox method and specify that I DON'T want to have the multiple="multiple" attribute ?

Thx !

Thank you ! You saved my day ;-)
It's quite unusual to think about a dropdownlist when you need a listbox, but in fact... it remains a select tag

true, not sure why microsoft decided to go this way, since all it differs is in the fact that one has multiple attribute, and other doesn't have.

thanks for the points :)
