View Full Version : show list based on value clicked

02-02-2011, 11:31 AM
the following function shows a list of Counties populates by a PHP page:

$.getJSON('http://www.mypubspace.com/dashtest/countyjson.php', function(data){
var myhtml = '<ul>';
for(i=0; i<data.length; i++) {
myhtml += '<li>' + data[i].County + '</li>';
myhtml += '</ul>';


I would like to now, when a user clicks on a County, they are shown a list of pubs based on that County (so, I'll create a new PHP page WHERE County = 'County' or something?!)

at the moment, when a user clicks on a County this function is passed:

function gopublist(event)
var stackLayout = document.getElementById('stackLayout').object; // Replace with id of StackLayout

So, passing a value through so I can modify the SQL in the PHP page to filter the counties?!

Please help?

How are you getting the function to be called? I don't see an "onclick=" or anything. why not add an onclick to your <li> tags to look something like this:

myhtml += '<li onclick=\"mymethod('+data[i].Country+');\">' + data[i].Country + '</li>';

excellent thanks, and then calling that mymethod(); function?

Well you'd make 'mymethod()' be whatever you need it to be, like this:

function mymethod(country) {
var stackLayout = document.getElementById('stackLayout').object;

Just make sure the parameter you have it passing is the right kind of the setCurrentView() call.

ok, so this is sort of working... I can see that it is trying to be passed through...

so, if I select Aberdeenshire it will error:

Cannot find variable: Aberdeenshire

Please help?!

thanks, nearly there!
