Script Keeper?

    I have a project that I would Greatly Appreciate some direction.

    My goal is to create a "Sales Assistant Script" that recommends products
    based upon Response's to questions.

    I know enough JavaScript to successfully create a "JavaScript Error" 2 out
    of 3 times! <Grin>

    The books I have read are great in regards to understanding what the code is
    doing, but in my novice opinion don't teach me the "when to use what"
    examples. Maybe that comes with experience.

    I'm "guessing" that I will need to have a set of lets say 12 questions. I
    will group these questions in groups of 4. If the User selects a
    combination of questions, then my script will recommend the user purchase
    certain products.

    So what I need to know is how do you assign or group the selection of
    buttons or check marks, to specific product recommendations?

    I'm looking for the Simplist way of getting this done.

    What do I need to do ?

    Thanks,
    Richard

    sounds like you combine the answers to an sql query ansA && ansB &&
    ansC && ansD

    gives you also a hint on how to order your questions

    Thanks for the info.

    Fortunately or unfortunately I'm taking a JavaScript class and I have to
    write this in JavaScript.

    Any JavaScript help would be appreciated.
    Thanks again.

    A couple of questions:

    1) How many answers must be given to point to a product?

    2) Can any set of answers point to more than one product?


    Start by defining a matrix of products and answers.

    Define the solution then write code to realize it.

    1. I'd say 3 answers to point to a product.
    2. I'd prefer a set of 3 answers point to one product but more than one
    product is fine.

    I'm looking for a Script Sample , or something online that already does this
    that will help me better understand what I need to do.

    I need this to be easy for me so I can understand and grasp what the script
    is doing.

    Thanks for any help.

    Please don't top post as it's harder to follow the conversation.

    I forgot to ask:

    What types of questions are they --
    true/false, multiple choice, or fill-in-the-blank?

    a) Do you want a car? True / False

    b) How many doors do you want? 2, 4, or 5 (hatchback)

    c) What brand do you prefer? _______________


    Can you give some question and answer examples?

    Here is something I found on the Web that is similiar to what I want to do.

    http://www.kmoser.com/xerox/cgi-bin/ps.cgi?action=home

    Only difference is I'd like to ask the User questions and then suggest some
    products.

    Does this help?

    I looked at the source code but could not figure out how this was done.

    I think if I can get a sample of script on how to assign a radial button to
    a specific set of products that I can do the rest......I hope.

    Thanks again for any help.

    "assign a ... button to a specific set of products" has no clear meaning.
    The first step in writing a program is to *cleary* define what you want
    it to do.

    I am sorry, but isn't the whole point of taking a Javascript class to
    actually *learn* the language?

    Currently, you are just muddling through your assignment by trying to
    copy someone elses code to your problem without knowing what you
    actually do.

    Looking at (good) examples to get *ideas* on how to solve something
    makes sense. Just copying stuff is a dumb thing to do.

    I agree, and that's why my question was and still is;

    So what I need to know is how do you assign or group the selection of
    buttons or check marks, to specific product recommendations?

    I don't see anywhere in my post where I said I wanted to copy someone's
    script.

    I'm simply looking for a way to count or assign checkmarks / radial buttons
    to a specific Product recommendation.

    Interesting thing about some of these groups, you get more criticism than
    help.

    I spent 18 years working with End User's answering questions etc for Major
    IT Companies only to have my job go to India. No biggee, But I find trying
    to learn a new skill like JavaScript challenging enough without the
    criticisms like yours.

    Thanks I think.

    Some tasks are so simple and obvious that they can be undertaken without
    any forethought or planning, some cannot. Most programming task would
    fall into the second category.

    The process of planing/designing a script will usually go through a
    stage where the problem is well defined and clearly (and full)
    expressed. So far you have only expressed the problem in the vaguest
    terms. If you employed someone to write the script for you, you would
    find them now bombarding you with questions about the specifics of the
    task, its context, etc.

    What you get from these groups often depends a great deal on how you go
    about interacting with them. For a start, demonstrating a total
    disregard for the long established Usenet posting conventions is widely
    considered as indicating that you don't actually want any help at all
    (and it take no effort on the part of other participants in the group to
    satisfy that). This group's FAQ (and related material) goes into some
    detail on the subject and you would be well advised to read, understand
    and act upon the advice it contains before saying another word.

    That's not a Javascript problem. You need to figure out what your
    program requirements are before you start programming. I.e., you must
    be able to say that if *these* questions are answered with a yes, the
    recommended product is *that*. Do that on paper.

    When you have that, it's a simple matter of reading what controls are
    checked (that's a javascript problem, which you can ask about if you
    fail to find the answer yourself in the FAQ or on Google, but after
    making a decent try yourself) and from the knowledge of which are
    checked, select the correct recommended product (there will probably
    be "if"'s in that)

    (And it's "radio buttons", not "radial", although I would think that
    something called "radial buttons" would *look* cool :)

    You did the right thing in saying that it was for an assignment.
    However, Usenet tradition is to require more from a poster that needs
    help with an assignment than for anyone else, because too much help
    will just mean less learning from it. (And for anybody else: trying to
    hide that it is an assignment will just bring trouble.)

    Someone can't communicate this politely to the person asking. Don't
    worry too much about that. Usenet is full of ... people :)

    Anyway, we do expect you to have very specific questions (aka "smart
    questions") about your assignment. Read
    <URL:http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html>
    and realize that while the sentiment expressed on this page goes for
    everybody, it is more strictly enforced for assignment questions.
    Remember, it's for your own good (like eating broccoli :)

    Good luck :)

    Hello lasse,

    THANKS,

    That give me more to look at and consider.

    The last time I worked on an assignment, I was working on a script , ended
    up working on it for 4 days when I finally realized I was making my script
    more complex than what I needed. There are so many functions, methods, etc
    to JavaScript that I admit it's difficult for me a Novice to determine where
    to start from. I'm not sure if that's a common thing for JavaScripters but
    that's my prob.

    I do appreciate the guidance.

    I was not aware where the FAQ was not that my question I guess fell under
    the "not smart" category <g>. Thank you for pointing me to the FAQ with a
    specific URL. While I'm not new to newsgroups, I am new to this particular
    one.

    Thanks again for your time and reply.

    Rich
