<tr>
<td style="vertical-align:top;" rowspan="5" width="130px">Shipment by<br/><span style="font-size:10px">(select nearest city <br/>if not find your city)</span>
<div class="ship_only"><p>Sorry, for your inconvenience.<br/>For now, other area besides jakarta please <a href="<?php echo $config_basedir;?>contact_us">contact us</a></p>
</div>
</td>
<td style="vertical-align:top; padding-left:"><input name="br" type="radio" checked onClick="SetHTML2('c1')"/>TIKI regular
<span id="c1" style="">
<div style="margin-left:20px;margin-top:5px;">
<table width="60%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="3">
  <tr>
    <td width="150">Province</td>
    <td  width="150"><select name="province" id="province" onChange="getNextMenu(0)"><option value="">Select province</option>
<?php $c = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM provinsi");
while($crow = mysql_fetch_array($c)){    
	
echo '<option value="'.$crow["id_provinsi"].'">'.$crow["provinsi"].'</option>';
	}
	?>
        </select></td>
  </tr>
  <tr style="">
    <td>City</td>
    <td ><select name="city" id="city" onChange="getNextMenu(1)"  disabled>
<option value="none selected"> Select province first</option> 
        </select></td>
  </tr>
  <tr style="">
    <td>Price</td>
    <td class="hid">
   <select name="val" id="val" disabled>
<option value="none selected"> Select city First </option> 
     </select> /kg
   </td>

</td>
</tr>

<td>

	}
	?>
        </select></td>

Nicosa,

The simplest strategy is to disable the all three select menus when "TIKI ONS" is selected. This will leave their options intact in case the user returns to "TIKI Regular". Use element.disabled = true; and element.disabled = false; If you really must neutralise the menus, then one possible strategy would be as follows:

When getNextMenu(x) is called, get it to :

  • hide the neutral vesion of <select> menu x+1, (without removing it from the DOM)
  • append a new <select> menu (populated with its <option>s) to appear in the same position on the page as the original.

When "TIKI ONS" is selected, you now have a mechanism to return to the initial state by :

  • removing the populated <select> menus from the DOM.
  • showing the neutral <select> menus.

This should put everything back to the initial state so that the user can, if necessary, start afresh after returning to "TIKI Regular".

To do this you will need to use DOM methods:

  • document.getElementById() (or document.form.formElementName)
  • element.appendChild()
  • element.removeChild()
  • element.style.display = 'none'
  • element.style.display = 'inline'.

This is the sort of thing I envisaged:

</style>

<script>
var $ = function(x){ return document.getElementById(x); }
function setHTML(s) {
	var m0, m1, m2;
	var sections = ['reg', 'ons'];//add any further sections here
	var menus = ['city', 'val'];//add any further sections here
	for(var i=0; i<sections.length; i++) {
		m0 = sections[i] + '_' + 'province';
		$(m0).disabled = (sections[i] !== s) ? true : false;
		for(var j=0; j<menus.length; j++) {
			m1 = sections[i] + '_' + menus[j] + '_x';
			m2 = sections[i] + '_' + menus[j];
			$(m1).style.display = (sections[i] !== s) ? 'inline' : 'none';
			$(m2).style.display = (sections[i] === s) ? 'inline' : 'none';
		}
	}
}

onload = function(){
	 $('brReg').checked = true;
	 setHTML('reg');
};
</script>
</head>

Nice Air show,
i get your idea, but i can not hide or collapse disabled value. eg. schema like below

TIKI REGULAR(radio unchecked)
TIKI ONS(radio checked)
province
city
value
TNT (radio unchecked)
UPS (radio unchecked)

in your idea before if radio unchecked the menu province, city, and value still show up so it will take to much place if we have lot of radio button.
Need your advice again Airshow.

many thank

Nicosa,

If I understand correctly, then that makes the code is very much simpler :

	var n = 2;//number of sections
	for(var i=0; i<n; i++) {

	}

onload = function(){

</body>
</html>

Note that each set of menus is now wrapped in <div id="sX"> where X is the section number, and we simply pass 0, 1, 2 etc to setHTML to identify the active section.

Also, the disabled versions of City and Price menus are now not required so we have deleted them.

Hello Airshow,
sorry for long time not online.
the script you written simplier then one. but i think we have a problem because the value from before still intact there how we make those field disabled to avoid the value send to process/database when we click submit.

thank again Airshow

Nicosa,

As far as I am aware, setting non-displayed form elements are not submitted, though maybe not all browsers follow this rule.

Therefore, to be certain we can both hide and disable all select menus in non-current sections, like this :

function setHTML(s) {
	var n = 2;//number of sections
	for(var i=0; i<n; i++) {
		var section = $('s'+i);
		section.style.display = (i === s) ? 'block' : 'none';
		var menus = section.getElementsByTagName('select');
		for(var j=0; j<menus.length; j++) {
			menus[j].disabled = (i === s) ?  false: true;
		}
	}
}

You can prove that menus are disabled by temporarily commenting out the line

section.style.display = (i === s) ? 'block' : 'none';
