Hi Experts,

I attempt to send a dataset from an asp loop populated <OPTION> list to a javascript function using an onChange event in the <SELECT> tag, but get only "undefined" as output. What do I miss? heres my code:

<script type="text/javascript">

function UpdatecatPopup(){

var d = document.getElementById('EqCatList');
var _EqcID = d.options[d.selectedIndex].dataset['EqcID'];
var _des = d.options[d.selectedIndex].dataset['des'];
var _bet = d.options[d.selectedIndex].dataset['bet'];
var _descr = d.options[d.selectedIndex].dataset['descr'];
	
	
	document.getElementById('EditEqcID').innerHTML = _EqcID;
	document.getElementById('EditDesignation').value = _des;
	document.getElementById('EditBetegnelse').value = _bet;
	document.getElementById('EditDescription').value = _descr;
}

</script>

<body>

<select id="EqCatList" name="EqCatList" onChange="UpdatecatPopup();" >
<%
do while not EqCatList.EOF
%>
<option data-EqcID="<%=EqCatList("EqCatID")%>" data-EqCatDesignation="'<%=EqCatList("EqCatDesignation")%>'" data-EqCatBetegnelse="'<%=EqCatList("EqCatBetegnelse")%>'" data-EqCatDescription="'<%=EqCatList("EqCatDescription")%>'" onMouseOver="this.style.cursor='pointer';" >
<%=EqCatList("EqCatDesignation")%>
</option>

<%
EqCatList.movenext
loop
%>
</select>

<div id="EditEqcID" name="EditEqcID" class="EqCatinput" ></div><br />
<input type="text" id="EditDesignation" name="EditDesignation" class="EqCatinput" ><br />
<input type="text" id="EditBetegnelse" name="EditBetegnelse" class="EqCatinput" ><br />
<input type="text" id="EditDescription" name="EditDescription" class="EqCatinput" ><br />

</body>

Hi again, leakim971

fantastic! works like a charm, allowing the page to work even in IOS Safari (where onclick within the <option> tag did'nt do the trick as it does in other browsers).

And to your question  "why do you have the form inside the head section? " - well, I use it solely for populating hidden fields with assorted javascript functions - so I figured it was not nessecary in the body - are there any considerations I should know about?

But thanks for speedy help :)

Regards
MortenWB
