Ajax JQuery Dropdown option adding issue

Hi,

I want to set the options for dropdown list in a form using ajax and jquery.

My code looks like this:


$('select#project').live('change',function(event) {
                          var $country=$(this).val();
                          $.get('select.do',{countryname:$country},function(responseJson) {  
                              var $select = $('#department').get($(this).index());  
                              var $option = $('#department option');
                              $option.remove();
                              $.each(responseJson, function(key, value) {              
                                    $('<option>').val(key).text(value).appendTo($select);      
                              });
                        });
                    });

This works fine and retrieves the value from action servlet and sets the value to the option list.

But, it always sets the value to the first row's dropdown NOT to the current row.

I am adding multiple rows using jquery dynamically.

Code for adding is below:

$(document).ready(function() {
                        var $button = $('#add-row');
                              $row = $('.timesheet-row').clone(false);

                        $button.click(function() {
                              $row.clone(false).insertBefore( $button );
                        });
});

Below is my html form code:
<div class="timesheet-row">

                        <label>Project:
                              <select name="project[]" id="project" required>
                                    <option value="1">Project-1</option>
                                    <option value="2">Project-2</option>
                                    <option value="3">Project-3</option>
                                    <option value="4">Project-4</option>
                                    <option value="5">Project-5</option>
                              </select>
                        </label>

                        <label>Department:
                              <select name="department[]" id="department" required>
                              <option value="" />
                              </select>
                        </label>

                        <label>Task:
                              <select name="task[]" required>
                              <option value="" />
                              </select>
                        </label>

                        <label>Hours:
                              <input type="number" step="0.25" name="hours[]" width="1" placeholder="2.0" required />
                        </label>

                        <label>Comment:
                              <input type="text" name="comment[]" width="50" />
                        </label>

                  </div>

                  <input type="button" id="add-row" name="add-row" value="Add row" />

Please refer the image attached.

Can anyone help to set the dropdown option to current row instead to the first row always.

Thanks

ASKER

you mean, it is not required to have a unique name for class when we create multiple rows?

I am not much familiar with JQuery. Can you pls give me the sample code snippet ?
You said 'I can't really test it as I am missing some of the functions'

Probably, you will be missing the action servlet to send the option list which i call in the onChange event :

 $.get('select.do',{countryname:$country},function(responseJson)

You can just write a simple action to resturn a JSON map and test
