    Jquery Dynamic Drop Down?!

    Asked by retrophonic on June 11, 2013 at 06:15 AM

    Hi There,

    I need to make a dynamic drop down. I'm pretty sure you can't do this from the already implemented options in the form builder.
    I've written a dynamic drop down that i'd like to put into the "html" option on the form builder. However this uses jquery and it's not working for some reason.
    Is there a way of implementing my code into the form builder?

    Please let us know your website URL where you have embeded your form's source code and the jquery code for dynamic dropdown.

    There must be some code conflict. We will have a check.

    this is the code i'm trying to put in:


    <script type='text/javascript' src='//koviko.net/wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery.js?ver=1.4.2'></script>

    <script type="text/javascript" src="//koviko.net/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/jquery.dynamicDropdown.min_.js"></script>
    Reason For Returning:
    <select id="example">
        <option value="1">Damaged » I Need A Collection</option>
        <option value="2">Not Working » I Need A Collection</option>
        <option value="3">Not Suitbale » I'm Sending Back</option>
        <option value="4">Incorrect Item Received » I Need A Collection</option>
        <option value="5">Incorrect Item Ordered » I'm Sending Back</option>
        <option value="6">Other Reason</option>
    <script type="text/javascript">jQuery("#example").dynamicDropdown({"delimiter":" » "});</script>

    Hi Daryl

    I've had a look at the site from which I believe you got the plugin (Build an accessible, client-side chained selection drop down) but I'm wondering if it won't be simpler to implement a solution similar to that shown here because it won't require embedding the form's source and using jQuery.

    Also, I'm not sure if it would help in this instance but there's a video that details how conflicts between jQuery and other scripts can be avoided.

    Perhaps when we see your web page, we'll be able to better assist you.

    Hi Wayne, thanks for your quick reply.

    I've had a futher look into the system and came across that link you provided. However i'm having another issue. But hopefully it will be resolved here.
