Quick JQuery syntax issue

Hi,

I've got a line of Jquery code to find the text value of a selected item in a drop down list:

		var currentId = $(this).attr('id').substring(5);
		if ($('#feeid + currentId option:selected').text() == 'My Fee Is') {

Open in new window


It doesn't work, however this does:

		var currentId = $(this).attr('id').substring(5);
		if ($('#feeid1 option:selected').text() == 'My Fee Is') {

Open in new window


So using the '+ currentid' is causing the issue. I have confirmed the currentid has a correct value. How do I code this? I have searched the internet but it's so specific I can't find an answer that helps me.

I am assuming that you can place the '#feeid + currentId' in some parenthesis? I may be totally wrong though. :)

Regards

The syntax error should be solved with this:
if ($('#feeid' + currentId + ' option:selected').text() == 'My Fee Is') {

Open in new window


You weren't concatenating the values correctly.

Ah! - a bit obvious now I can see the solution - but isn't that always the case?
Many thanks,
