Best approach, nested repeats with radio buttons

I am trying for figure the best approach for the following: I have a database of furniture. I would like to show all the chairs in one section. Let say I have two different models of chairs in that section, not a problem. I have another database that contains the quantity and price for each model of chair. First chair has 3 price breaks the other has 2. I would like the prices to show as a radio group under each product. So when the radio is selected to the corresponding chair it pushes the price using javascript into the input form relating the that item.

I can do this if it is just one item. I just build the radio group using product price database in a repeat. I am having trouble figuring the best way to handle multiple items in a repeat area, can not have nested repeats. And, building the radio button group dynamically such as the name, etc. Then setting the price when the radio button is selected. Or, should I look into another direction?

Your thoughts are appreciated.

I think with the end result you are looking for this would be easier to create on a product detail page. On a detail page you could just have the radio group be dynamic and associate the values with a recordset for the prices.

You can then do the javascript to set the value of another form element to the price. For the JavaScript part it should be very basic, it might be just setting the value of an element in the onChange event for the radio group. Here is a link to the W3schools site, it is a great resource for the js stuff:

Best approach, nested repeats with radio buttons

This is how I have it set up right now and it does work. I was just wondering if their was a better solution to how I was doing it now.

Thank you for your reply.

One way that I have done similar things like this on a single page for multiple items is to put the code for the radio group recordset inside of the loop. This way you can have unique values generated by the recordset each iteration. If the recordset is being filtered to a specific item id you would just want to make sure you update this part of the code to use the dynamic value that comes from the main items recordset.
