jquery ui selectable grid and values

Hi Guys

 

I'm quite new to jquery ui and it's posing something of a headache to follow the demos :/

 

I'm trying to use the selectable grid (http://jqueryui.com/demos/selectable/#display-grid) and my desire is to pass a different value to a variable based on the item clicked. I'm then going to post that value to my php script.

 

I've worked out the latter part which was pretty straight forward. But i can't work out how to retrieve a value from clicking on the grid :/

 

Anyone able to help?

 

The code i'm working with is:

 

<script>
$(function() {
	$( "#selectable" ).selectable();
});
</script>
</head>

<body>


<div class="demo">

<ol id="selectable">
<li class="ui-state-default">1</li>
<li class="ui-state-default">2</li>
<li class="ui-state-default">3</li>
<li class="ui-state-default">4</li>
<li class="ui-state-default">5</li>

<li class="ui-state-default">6</li>
<li class="ui-state-default">7</li>
<li class="ui-state-default">8</li>
<li class="ui-state-default">9</li>
<li class="ui-state-default">10</li>
<li class="ui-state-default">11</li>

<li class="ui-state-default">12</li>
</ol>

</div><!-- End demo -->

Well after an hour of scratching my head I got it to work. Thought I'd post it here to help any others in the noob boat :)

 

 

I think i need to seriously bone up on my jquery...

 

<script>
$(function() {
	$( "#selectable" ).selectable({
		stop: function() {


			$("#selectable li").click(function() {
				var tester = $(this).attr("value");

				$("#content").html(tester);
			});
		}
	});
});
</script>
</head>

<body>


<div class="demo">

<ol id="selectable">
<li class="ui-state-default" value="100">1</li>
<li class="ui-state-default" value="200">2</li>
<li class="ui-state-default" value="300">3</li>
<li class="ui-state-default" value="400">4</li>
<li class="ui-state-default">5</li>

<li class="ui-state-default">6</li>
<li class="ui-state-default">7</li>
<li class="ui-state-default">8</li>
<li class="ui-state-default">9</li>
<li class="ui-state-default">10</li>
<li class="ui-state-default">11</li>

<li class="ui-state-default">12</li>
</ol>

</div><!-- End demo -->
