How can I get the value of assignee using AJS.$

Hi All,

Presently I am Using JAVA scripts for getting value of assignee.My objective is to change the assignee based ona field value.

See the present code I am using for that.I wan to convert this using Jquery.

script type="text/javascript">

assignee = document.getElementById('assignee');
source = document.getElementById('customfield_11290');
sourceFieldArea = document.getElementById('customfield_11290').parentNode;
assigneeFieldArea=document.getElementById('assignee').parentNode; = 'none'; = 'none';

if (source.value=="value")

Converting your JavaScript to jQuery, you get something like this:

	$assignee = AJS.$('#assignee');
	$source = AJS.$('#customfield_11290');

	if ($source.val()=='value'){ 
		$assignee.children('option[value="user1"]').attr('selected', 'selected');
} else { $assignee.children('option[value="user2"]').attr('selected', 'selected');
} });

...but there's nothing wrong with pure JavaScript :)
