Hi, I'm working in a mobile app and I have this checkboxes, when click in a button it generates a list with the checked options in the same page.  I would like to appear in a new page, but I don't know how to do it.  I will appreciate any help.  Thanks.

Here's the Html

<section class="header_default footer_default" data-role="page" id="setup" data-title="Setup">
        <article data-role="content">
            <form>
                <fieldset data-role="controlgroup" id="hoursName">
                    <legend><strong>Choose your Hours Type:</strong></legend>
                    <input type="checkbox" name="checkboxHours" id="1" value="Regular Hours" >
                    <label for="1">Regular Hours</label>
                    <input type="checkbox" name="checkboxHours" id="2" value="Overtime">
                    <label for="2b">Overtime</label>
                    <input type="checkbox" name="checkboxHours" id="3" value="Travelling">
                    <label for="3">Traveling</label>
                    <input type="checkbox" name="checkboxHours" id="4" value="Training">
                    <label for="4">Training</label>
                    <input type="checkbox" name="checkboxHours" id="5" value="Truck Hours">
                    <label for="5">Truck Hours</label>
                </fieldset>
            </form>
           <button class="ui-btn ui-corner-all addAmount">Add Amount</button>

           <div id="nameList"></div>

        </article><!--content-->     
    </section><!--setup page-->

Open in new window


Here's the Jq:
$(document).on("click", ".addAmount", function(){
&#9;var selectedValues="";
&#9;$checkedCheckboxes = $("input:checkbox[name=checkboxHours]:checked");
&#9;$checkedCheckboxes.each(function () {
&#9;&#9;$('#nameList').append('<li>' + $(this).val() + '</li>');
&#9;});
});

If you follow this : http://demos.jquerymobile.com/1.4.0/pages/#Multi-pagetemplatestructure

Just put (line 20) <div id="nameList"></div> in the second page

This doesn't work because I'm not trying to open a page with a link, a button retrieves checked checkboxes and populates the list on a div on another page.

It does matter how you go to the other pages, just the fact that ALL the pages are loaded at the first time

See here for a working example http://jsbin.com/jisok/1/edit

Essentially you needed to specify that your nameList div to have the "data-role=page" attribute along with moving outside the <section> tag on it's own.

Cheers,

I modified the javascript slightly, mainly by adding the "window.location" line at the end.
$(".addAmount").on("click", function() {
    var selectedValues = "";
    $checkedCheckboxes = $("input:checkbox[name=checkboxHours]:checked");
    $checkedCheckboxes.each(function () {
        $('#nameList').append('<li>' + $(this).val() + '</li>');
    });
    window.location = "#nameList";
});

Open in new window


the html changed to this:
<section class="header_default footer_default" data-role="page" id="setup" data-title="Setup">
        <article data-role="content">
            <form>
                <fieldset data-role="controlgroup" id="hoursName">
                    <legend><strong>Choose your Hours Type:</strong></legend>
                    <input type="checkbox" name="checkboxHours" id="1" value="Regular Hours" >
                    <label for="1">Regular Hours</label>
                    <input type="checkbox" name="checkboxHours" id="2" value="Overtime">
                    <label for="2">Overtime</label>
                    <input type="checkbox" name="checkboxHours" id="3" value="Travelling">
                    <label for="3">Traveling</label>
                    <input type="checkbox" name="checkboxHours" id="4" value="Training">
                    <label for="4">Training</label>
                    <input type="checkbox" name="checkboxHours" id="5" value="Truck Hours">
                    <label for="5">Truck Hours</label>
                </fieldset>
            </form>
           <button class="ui-btn ui-corner-all addAmount">Add Amount</button>


        </article><!--content-->     
    </section><!--setup page-->
           <div data-role="page" id="nameList"></div>
