beginning_php thread: Information is selected using combo box, how to set the 'default' while display


Message #1 by "Vikas Athavale" <vikaspa@b...> on Wed, 18 Sep 2002 09:53:21
I am accepting zones from a combo box.

Actual value   and Zone 
         1     North
         2     South
         3     East
         4     West

The combo displays the zone names South,No4rth etc and corresponding 
values (on eof 1,2,3,4)  is stored in file.

When youe want to see the employee detail i wna to set default of the 
combo box accordingly.

By default my combo box is set to North.
If the employee code selected is of "South" zone what change i need to 
make in combo box ?

You would use something like

<option value="...">...</option>

For all the elements in the combo.

To specify the default use <option value="..." selected></option

This is easily done in php with something like this

<option value="..."<?php if ($var1==$var2) echo (' selected');
?>></option>
