Move a rectangle with a form

I have this,

I’m trying to use the forms select box to move the blue rectangle to another slot, here is what happens when I change the 5 to a 3

Everything looks good,
But if I select 4

I missed the mark, I am confused with the function, how can I get the numbers (3 and 4) to have the same y direction?

Hi Lurtnowski,

Is it possible for you to put this in a jsfiddle or a codepen?

With regards the following:

This doesn’t answer your question, but the above could be simplified using a ternary.

var x_adjustment = (selectSlotValue % 2 === 0) ? 225 : 0

document.getElementById("y_coord").value = y_adjustment;

thanks, tried the ternary thing before but its good now.

I think this does what you want:

  var x_adjustment = selectSlotValue % 2 === 0 ? 225 : 0;
  var y_adjustment = (diff - x_adjustment / 225) * 46.43;

dang, thats exactly it. How did you come up with the y_adjustment formula?

The idea is to nudge the circuit breaker up if it’s going in the right-hand slots.

x_adjustment/225 will be 0 if it’s going in the left-hand slots and 1 if it’s going in the right-hand slots. The amount it needs nudging up is 46.43 pixels (very roughly :grinning:).

You have an issue if it’s moving to slots 13 or 14.
