Put https in cdn for jQuery.
After that you should move “continentcode” variable to some “visible” place (on start script tag).
Put part of code that begins with “$(function() . . . }); //]]>” in function with name and call that function after line:
document.getElementById('continent2').value = results[0].address_components[i].short_name;
After this it should work,
best regards


thanks your solution work
