jquery to select option data and value when each dropdown has dynamically created id

I need to auto populate the form based on the dropdown selection. I have multiple dropdown section with dynamic id. How can I use jquery to target dynamic id to get the both option value and data attribute to fill the input text area. I can get the value for predefined id but can’t trigger jquery for unknown id.

@foreach(var number in totalNumber){

  <div class="col-12 col-md-12 col-lg-8 ml-0 pr-1">
   <select  name="@number"  class="form-control mb-1">

       <option>Select from the dropdown</option>
        @foreach(var product in @Model.ProductList){
            <option value="@product.productName"
                    data-pd = "@product.productDescription"
                    data-model = "@product.productModelNo">

  <input type="hidden" class="form-control mb-1" rows="1" placeholder="Product Name"/>

  <input type="hidden"  class="form-control mb-1" rows="1" placeholder="Product description"/>
  <input type="hidden" class="form-control mb-1" rows="1" placeholder="Product Model Number"/>

I need to get product Name, product description and product model number on my input field based on the dropdown selection made.

Method 1

Firstly add some class names to your hidden fields so that they can be easily identified by JQuery.

For example:

<input type="hidden" class="product-name form-control mb-1" rows="1" placeholder="Product Name" />
<input type="hidden" class="product-description form-control mb-1" rows="1" placeholder="Product description" />
<input type="hidden" class="product-model-no form-control mb-1" rows="1" placeholder="Product Model Number" />

Then to set hidden values on changing dropdown, use the change() method. You can find the hidden fields using parent() & find().

As an example:

$('select').on('change', function () {
    var productName = this.value;
    var productDescription = $(this).find('option:selected').data("pd");
    var productModelNo = $(this).find('option:selected').data("model");
