Hi,

I have this code:

$(".relation_to_grantor").change(function(this) {

 var sGRelationToGrantorSelection = $(this).val();

});

I'm wondering if I have multiple select tags with the class"relation_to_grantor" like:

<select class="relation_to_grantor">

and I changed, say, the first <select> that matches this class name then how would I just get the options value for just this select that I changed?

Is the above code, right? I haven't test it yet.

Thank you

Yes, you're using the keyword this which represents the select that triggered the change event

You shouldn't pass this as an argument of the function - that's for passing the event, not the control!

Your code should look like this:

$(".relation_to_grantor").change(function() {
    var sGRelationToGrantorSelection = $(this).val();
});

You could use "option:selected" like this:

var sGRelationToGrantorSelection;
$(".relation_to_grantor").change(function () {
 sGRelationToGrantorSelection = $(this).find('option:selected').attr('value');
});
