There are grouped products on an existing shop which I now want to display as configurable products depending on their simple product weight.

The way it works now is also okay but I have a usability issue that users have to figure out where to enter their quantity for the exact weighted product they want to order. For example, if I have a grouped product with simple products that are 100g, 200g, 400g, 800g, 1000g, and they want to order 200g, they have to leave 0 on the quantity box of all other product weights and just 1 (or 2,3 etc.) on the box corresponding to 200g. This would be so much easier if there was a dropdown box with the weight selectable as dropdown and a quantity box next to it which I can achieve with a configurable product setup.

Question: Is there any way this can be achieved programmatically or with an extension or with something on the database? Any guidance would be appreciated.
