    Form Field Additiion

    I have the code below that adds the values of form fields and gives total amount. I got the code online as I am new to Javascript and can't write it myself yet. It works fine but I now need to add another form field value to the addition calculation. I have searched the internet and tried various methods to solve the problem to no avail. The form field is a text input field called "tip". I would think it would take a javascript expert about 30 seconds to write the new field into the existing code, thus saving my sanity. Help will be greatly appreciated.

    Code:
    <script type="text/javascript">
    function Calc(){
    var person1 =document.getElementById('ead2').options[document.forms['form1']
    .elements['ead2'].selectedIndex].getAttribute('id');
    var person2 = document.getElementById('ess2').options[document.forms['form1']
    .elements['ess2'].selectedIndex].getAttribute('id');
    var result = (parseInt(person1) + parseInt(person2));
    
    var totalPassenter = result;
    var luggage = document.getElementById('elg').value;
    var canCarry = totalPassenter * 2;
    if(totalPassenter != 0 && luggage > canCarry) {
    var extraLuggage = luggage - canCarry;
    var extraPay = extraLuggage * 5;
    document.getElementById('elg2').value = extraPay;
    } else{
    document.getElementById('elg2').value = 0;
    }
    VField1=eval(document.form1.ead2.value)
    VField2=eval(document.form1.ess2.value)
    VField5=eval(document.form1.ech2.value)
    VField7=eval(document.form1.elg2.value)
    d=VField1+VField2+VField5+VField7
    document.form1.fare.value = d;
    }
    </script>

    You need to add a new element in the form name 'tip'
    Assuming it will look like <input type='text' id="tip" value="">

    Then add the access code similar to the other elements
    in the script portion of your post.

    Post back with you HTML and CSS if you have problems.

    As you have not posted the complete markup, I will assume that you have not got a proper web form based on the use of document.getElementById('ead2').options[document.forms['form1'].elements['ead2'].selectedIndex].getAttribute('id'); to get a select value that doesn't require half that code.

    If you post your Markup (HTML) then it would be possible to guide you to a much simpler script and better markup.
    --> JavaScript Frameworks like JQuery, Angular, Node <--
    ... and please remember to wrap code with forum BBCode tags:-

    [CODE]...[/CODE] [HTML]...[/HTML] [PHP]...[/PHP]

    If you can't think outside the box, you will be trapped forever with no escape...

    Thanks all for your help. I experimented with JMRKER's idea and figured it out.
