HTML – Multiple Values on Select Option

I needed to pass multiple values with a select option. It’s easily accomplished by setting the value to a JSON string

while ($row = oci_fetch_array($stmt, OCI_ASSOC+OCI_RETURN_NULLS)) {
	echo "<option value= " . json_encode($row) . ">" . $row['STRTYPENAME'] . "</option>\n";
}

And using JSON.parse to pull out the key of the value you need:

jQuery("#selectDivSetType").change(function () {     
    var strTemplateObject = $('#selectDivSetType').val();
    var jsonTemplateObject = JSON.parse( strTemplateObject );
    var strTemplateURI = './templates/' + jsonTemplateObject.STRTEMPLATENAME;
    $('#templateURI').attr("href", strTemplateURI); 
});
