Feet and Inches to Metres

Postby gstring570 » Wed Dec 01, 2004 8:29 pm

I am struggling to find a Javascript that can take a measurement in Feet and Inches (single display field) and convert to Metres. An example would be:

5' 8" (i.e. 5 Feet, 8 Inches)

I really only want to use 2 fields on the page - one for the Imperial as above and the second for the Metric to two decimal places e.g. 1.85

Has anyone seen a script for this / has developed one for themselves?

Thanks for any help ....
