I have the following code on my page that I need to apply some filters to:
<script type="text/javascript">
    function check() {
        var elements = document.getElementsByName("quantity");
        var qtycheck = document.getElementById("qtycheck").value;

        for (var i=0; i<elements.length; i++) {
            var nmbr = elements[i].value;
            if (nmbr > <?php echo $maxqtyorder; ?>){
                alert("You've selected more treats than your package allows.");
                return false;
            }
            else if (nmbr > qtycheck){
                alert("You've selected more treats than your package allows.");
                return false;
            }
        }
        return true;
    }
</script>

Open in new window


The 2nd line:
var elements = document.getElementsByName("quantity");

Open in new window


I want to get all the elements by name of quantity but exclude the ones that have an ID of quantity2442 and quantity2443.

Is there a way to do this when setting the variable?

Hi,

here we go:
    function check() {
        var elements = document.getElementsByName("quantity");
        var qtycheck = document.getElementById("qtycheck").value;

        for (var i=0; i<elements.length; i++) {
            if (elements[i].id != "quantity2442" && elements[i].id != "quantity2443") {
            var nmbr = parseInt(elements[i].value,10);
            if (nmbr > 100){
                alert("You've selected more treats than your package allows." + nmbr);
                return false;
            }
            else if (nmbr > qtycheck){
                alert("You've selected more treats than your package allows." + nmbr);
                return false;
            }
        }
        }
        return true;
    }

Open in new window


Important notice: you will have to add the parseInt to
 var nmbr = parseInt(elements[i].value,10);

Open in new window

otherwise it might be treated as text and e.g. "2" is greater than "100".
