Hi,

when the user select segment the Industry has to populate based on the segment.
the user should be allowed to select multiple segment.

<select name="DispSegmentList" class="SearchBySelect5" id="DispSegmentList" style="background-color: #f8fafc; width: 120px; height: 500px;" onchange="setIndustryOptions();" size="180" multiple="multiple">
<option value="4">
<option value="5">
<option value="1">
<option value="2">
</select>

<select name="DispIndustryList" class="SearchBySelect5" id="DispIndustryList" style="background-color: #f8fafc; width: 250px; height: 500px;" onchange="setCompanyOptions();" size="180" multiple="multiple">
<option value="4,8630" data-IndustryNumber="8630">
<option value="4,3710" data-IndustryNumber="3710">
<option value="4,5010" data-IndustryNumber="5010">
<option value="4,9990" data-IndustryNumber="9990">
<option value="4,8660" data-IndustryNumber="8660">
<option value="4,3310" data-IndustryNumber="3310">
</select>

function setIndustryOptions()
	{
			var dropdownIndustry = $("#DispIndustryList");
		var dropdownSegment = $("#DispSegmentList");
		var selectedSegment = $("#DispSegmentList option:selected");
	$.each(selectedSegment, function(index, value) {
	
		//here I want to separate the value.
SelectedSeg = ?
SelectedIndustry = ?
	});

	if (selectedSegment == '') {
		dropdownSegment.html('');
		dropdownIndustry.html('');
		return;
		}
		
		$.get( "filterIndustry.cfm?Segment=" + SelectedSeg + "Industry=" + SelectedIndustry, function (data) {
			dropdownIndustry .html( data );
		});
	}

Just loop thru the selected values

$('#DispSegmentList option:selected').each(function() {
//do whatever here for each selected value.
})

Maybe I am missing something?

Cathal,

my options values are "4,8630"  the first digit is the segment and the second digit is the industry

I need to set those field like this.

SelectedSeg = '4,5'
SelectedIndustry = '8630,3710'

so I can do the filter in the filterIndustry.cfm

$('#DispIndustryList option:selected').each(function() {
     SelectedSeg = $(this).val()
     SelectedIndustry = $(this).attr('data-IndustryNumber')
})

Normally I would use the data prop for the custom data attribute but it doesn't seem to work in this scenario

Hold off on this...

SelectedSeg=""
SelectedIndustry=""
$('#DispIndustryList option:selected').each(function() {
    vals = $(this).val()
    vals=vals.split(",")
    SelectedSeg+= "," + vals[0]
    SelectedIndustry += "," + vals[1]
   })
SelectedSeg=SelectedSeg.substring(1)
SelectedIndustry =SelectedIndustry .substring(1)
