var options=document.getElementById('linkld').options;

Will get you an array of the options in the select block.

Loop through them to look for option "A" or "B" value.

Thank you not sure I follow you.  My question is not on the Java side but rather on the html side  I can get the xxxxx or yyyy to appear in a text box  but doesn't pass to the post using a hidden

Your js had an extra curly bracket
   var option=document.getElementById('linkld').value;

    if(option=="A"){
   
            document.getElementById('field').value="xxxxx";
    }
        else if(option=="B"){
            document.getElementById('field').value="yyyyy";
        }

Are you trying to pass a request form to javascript?  Or just trying to have the javascript detect what is selected by changing the option or clicking a button?

Check this : http://jsfiddle.net/KSXt5/1/

function changeValue(option){
    if(option=="A") document.getElementById('field').value="xxxxx";
    else
    if(option=="B") document.getElementById('field').value="yyyyy";
}

Open in new window


I updated the onchange attribute :
<form name="PrePage" method = "post" action = "https://Simplecheckout.authorize.net/payment/CatalogPayment.aspx">		
    <select name="linkld" id="linkld" onchange="changeValue(this.value);">
        <option>Choose one</option>
        <OPTION value="A">Single Person Household - $20.00</OPTION>
        <OPTION value="B">2 Person Household - $30.00</OPTION>
     </select>
    <input type="text" name = "linkld" ID="field" value="" />
    <input type="submit" value="Add to Cart"/>	
</form>

Wouldn't it be easier to just put the values directly in the VALUE of the option?

That's exactly what I want to do, how would I? I need to pass the selected value as a hidden type input?

also the input line I am using is:

<input type = hidden" name = "linkld" ID="field" value="" />

not what I have above.  Above just returns xxxx or yyyy into the text box

GaryCommented:
Instead of
<OPTION Value="A">Single Person Household - $20.00</OPTION>

why not have it there to start with i.e.

<OPTION Value="xxxx">Single Person Household - $20.00</OPTION>

and get rid of the javascript and the hidden field

I'm confused why you have two elements (the dropdown and the hidden field) with the same name linkld if you are only wanting to pass one value.

This is what I am trying to Use,  without the Javascript.  But is doesn't pass the value

<form name="PrePage" method = "post" action = "https://Simplecheckout.authorize.net/payment/CatalogPayment.aspx">		
    <select name="linkld" id="linkld" >
        <option>Choose one</option>
        <OPTION value="6e6f6b1c-7d13-4a99-b8ab-e2791884aae6">Single Person Household - $20.00</OPTION>
        <OPTION value="8d8bf5a3-aab1-442e-8869-6741639e421c">2 Person Household - $30.00</OPTION>
     </select>
       <input type="submit"  id="linkld" value="Add to Cart"/>	
</form>

The following is the syntax that does work with a button rather than an select option:

01.
<form name="PrePage" method = "post" action = "https://Simplecheckout.authorize.net/payment/CatalogPayment.aspx"> <input type = "hidden" name = "LinkId" value ="6e6f6b1c-7d13-4a99-b8ab-e2791884aae6" /> <input type = "image" src ="//content.authorize.net/images/buy-now-gold.gif" /> </form>

please note ID attribute MUST BE unique in a document unlike class or name attributes.
Also attribute values are case sensitive.

name = "LinkId"
is not
name = "linkid"
or
name = "linkId"

your working and not working code have different name attribute value, the case is different...
