The code looks okay so far, Did you happen to do the "console.log" from jquery to debug if there is a problem on the javascript side?


Can you add console.log(' ratings : ' + rating); in click function and check it from the chrome browser by "inspecting element" and you can use Firebug plugin from mozilla.


If its not giving any value, then its probably not passing values from UI. Let me know how you get on?


no its not working.


i have tried.

in debug it is showing the null value as i kept it in constructor.

please check it out once
