Little puzzled on this one. I have a HTML table for product ordering with an input field as one of the columns representing a quantity of that product to order.

<table>
      <thead>
        <tr>
          <td class="name"><?php echo $column_name; ?></td>
          <td class="model"><?php echo $column_model; ?></td>
		  <td>Quantity</td>
          <td class="price"><?php echo $column_price; ?></td>
          <td class="action"><?php echo $column_action; ?></td>
        </tr>
      </thead>
      <?php foreach ($products as $product) { ?>
      <tbody id="wishlist-row<?php echo $product['product_id']; ?>">
        <tr>
          <td class="name"><a href="<?php echo $product['href']; ?>"><?php echo $product['name']; ?></a></td>
          <td class="model"><?php echo $product['model']; ?></td>
		<td><input type="text" name="quantitybox" id="quantitybox" size="2" value="" /></td>
          <td class="price"><?php echo $product['price']; ?></td>
          <td class="action"><input type="button" value="<?php echo $button_cart; ?>" class="button" onclick="addToCart('<?php echo $product['product_id']; ?>');" /></td>
        </tr>
      </tbody>
      <?php } ?>
    </table>

Open in new window


When i press add to cart, it uses a javascript function to pass the data via ajax to the shopping cart.

function addToCart(product_id, quantity) {
	//quantity = typeof(quantity) != 'undefined' ? quantity : 1;
	quantity = document.getElementById('quantitybox').value;
	
	$.ajax({
		url: 'index.php?route=checkout/cart/add',
		type: 'post',
		data: 'product_id=' + product_id + '&quantity=' + quantity,
		dataType: 'json',
		success: function(json) {
			$('.success, .warning, .attention, .information, .error').remove();
			
			if (json['redirect']) {
				location = json['redirect'];
			}
			
			if (json['success']) {
				$('#notification').html('<div class="success" style="display: none;">' + json['success'] + '<img src="catalog/view/theme/default/image/close.png" alt="" class="close" /></div>');
				
				$('.success').fadeIn('slow');
				
				$('#cart-total').html(json['total']);
				
				$('html, body').animate({ scrollTop: 0 }, 'slow'); 
			}	
		}
	});
}

It works great for the first row in the table, the problem is all the input fields in the columns have the same id. If you try to set a quantity in the 2, 3, 4...etc row of the table it always uses the value from the first row's input field.

How can i dynamically set the ID of each input based on the number of rows in the table and then get the value from that field and assign it to a variable that i can pass into the function?

As you set the id for  
<tbody id="wishlist-row<?php echo $product['product_id']; ?>">

Open in new window

Use same method to input like
<input type="text" name="quantitybox" id="quantitybox-<?php echo $product['product_id']; ?>" size="2" value="" />

Open in new window
