How do I turn this script into a Coldfusion dynamic output checkbox autosum .

function UpdateCost() {
  var sum = 0;
  var gn, elem;
  for (i=0; i<5; i++) {
    gn = 'game'+i;
    elem = document.getElementById(gn);
    if (elem.checked == true) { sum += Number(elem.value); }
  }
  document.getElementById('totalcost').value = sum.toFixed(2);
}


<input type="checkbox" id='game0' value="9.99"  onclick="UpdateCost()">Game 1 ( 9.99)<br>
<input type="checkbox" id='game1' value="19.99" onclick="UpdateCost()">Game 2 (19.99)<br>
<input type="checkbox" id='game2' value="27.50" onclick="UpdateCost()">Game 3 (27.50)<br>
<input type="checkbox" id='game3' value="45.65" onclick="UpdateCost()">Game 4 (45.65)<br>
<input type="checkbox" id='game4' value="87.20" onclick="UpdateCost()">Game 5 (87.20)<br>
<input type="text" id="totalcost" value="">

Not sure what a "Coldfusion dynamic output checkbox autosum" means.

What do you need javascript to do - that it's not doing now?

the script works fine because the form id is static and defined for 5 ids. With coldfusion the form id value will be dynamic from a sql output no limit to count of records.

<table border="0" cellpadding="3" cellspacing="0" width="100%">            
 <cfoutput query="qGetOpenItemsTrans">
  <tr>
   <td><input type="Checkbox">#TRIM(qGetOpenItemsTrans.tranno)#
</td>
 </tr>
</cfoutput>

<script>
function UpdateCost() {
  var total = 0;
  var itemCount = document.getElementById('itemCount').value;
  for (var i=1; i<=itemCount; i++) {
    var elem = document.getElementById("trans"+ i);
    if (elem.checked == true) { total += Number(elem.value); }
  }
  document.getElementById('totalcost').value = total.toFixed(2);
}
</script>

<!--- replace #ColumnToSum# with your column value --->
<cfoutput query="qGetOpenItemsTrans">
        <!--- use #currentRow# to name fields trans1, trans2, etc... --->
	<input type="checkbox" id='trans#CurrentRow#' value="#ColumnToSum#"  onclick="UpdateCost()">#transno#<br>
</cfoutput>
<!--- display total cost --->
Total Cost <input type="text" id="totalcost"><hr>

<!--- store total field count --->
<cfoutput>
<input type="hidden" id="itemCount" value="#qGetOpenItemsTrans.recordCount#">
</cfoutput>
