CSS Question

Integrating CSS star rating into an HTML form

I've seen a tutorial online - http://www.htmldrive.net/items/show/402/CSS-Star-Rating-System - for making a CSS star rating system.

On the page they have this code:

<ul class="rating">
<li><a href="#" title="1 Star">1</a></li>

<li><a href="#" title="2 Stars">2</a></li>

<li><a href="#" title="3 Stars">3</a></li>

<li><a href="#" title="4 Stars">4</a></li>

<li><a href="#" title="5 Stars">5</a></li>
</ul>


From what I can tell, this is just a list. How would I integrate it into my form, so that the information from the star rating can be submitted to a database. My current code for the form is below:

<p>Quality</p>
<input type="radio" name="ratingquality" value="1">
<input type="radio" name="ratingquality" value="2">
<input type="radio" name="ratingquality" value="3">
<input type="radio" name="ratingquality" value="4">
<input type="radio" name="ratingquality" value="5">

Answer

This is very easy to use, just copy-paste the code. You can use your own star image in background.

i have created a variable var userRating. you can use this variable to get value from stars.

Enjoy!! :)

CSS

.rating {
    float:left;
    width:300px;
}
.rating span { float:right; position:relative; }
.rating span input {
    position:absolute;
    top:0px;
    left:0px;
    opacity:0;
}
.rating span label {
    display:inline-block;
    width:30px;
    height:30px;
    text-align:center;
    color:#FFF;
    background:#ccc;
    font-size:30px;
    margin-right:2px;
    line-height:30px;
    border-radius:50%;
    -webkit-border-radius:50%;
}
.rating span:hover ~ span label,
.rating span:hover label,
.rating span.checked label,
.rating span.checked ~ span label {
    background:#F90;
    color:#FFF;
}

HTML

Javascript

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function(){
//  Check Radio-box
    $(".rating input:radio").attr("checked", false);
    $('.rating input').click(function () {
        $(".rating span").removeClass('checked');
        $(this).parent().addClass('checked');
    });

    $('input:radio').change(
    function(){
        var userRating = this.value;
        alert(userRating);
    }); 
});
</script>
