Dropdown List Selection

Feb 28, 2004

Here is what I'm trying to accomplish: I've got a dropdown list that is populated via a php script. Whenever the user selects a value from the list, they have to click on the 'submit' button in order to retrieve the values. I don't want this .... I don't want them to click on the button, rather, retrieve the values from the DB immediately upon selection of a list item. Its like ... I select a value from the dropdown list and it automatically uses its value to retrieve relevant details from the DB, no need to click on any button or anything. How do I do this with js ? Can I accomplish the same with php as well....

Disable A Dropdown List Based On Selection In Another Dropdown List?

Apr 20, 2011

I have two dropdown lists with the second one being dependent on the selection in the first.

Options in list 1: 1,3 or 4

List two should be enabled when 3 or 4 is selected in list 1.

So far so good, managed to get it to work with only one set of lists, but I actually have 18 of those sets in this form:

<select name="fw[$i]" id="fw[$i]">
<option value="1">FWH</option>
<option value="3">links</option>
<option value="4">rechts</option>

[Code]....

I'm not that adept in javascript programming, more like a trial and error guy, how has hit the wall with this problem.

Update A Dropdown List Based On The Selection Of A Previous List

Aug 16, 2010

i am writing a script that will update a dropdown list based on the selection of a previous list. the script is run by a PHP script, so instead of posting the PHP, i will post an example client-side script. the hierachy is: category, sub category, brand (but sometimes there exists no sub category and the PHP script queries and adds brands instead) everything works correctly, except for one major issue: you can not change the selection of the third (brand) box this could be an easy fix for some coders, but i am not experienced in javascript and could really use some help. here is an example script, sorry it is so long

PHP Drop Down List Selection Populates Second Dropdown List Or Text Box?

Jul 13, 2011

I have been struggling on a bit of code for a while now. I need to populate a second drop down list (Region) based upon the selection of the first (County).I have found a piece of code that works on its own and have adapted to suit my needs - see below. However, when I drop it into my main page the javascript is not working. It's because of the formObject but I just don't know enough to resolve this! Furthermore, I need the textboxes the user has already completed in the form to retain their value once the javascript kicks in as the completed form will submit to a database.This piece of code is working well . . . .

<?php

$link = mysql_connect('myhost', 'myusername', 'mypassword') or die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
mysql_select_db('mydatabase') or die('Could not select database');[code]......

Auto-Populate Text Field Based On DropDown List Selection

Dec 3, 2009

I have set up my website quite some time ago that has served its purpose very well, however I will now be adding an order form functionality. So far, by reading books and traversing forums, I have been able to develop a page where the user
1.Enters data into the required fields, that is then submitted to a MYSQL database via PHP,
2.Can retrieve orders that are stored in the database,
3.Delete orders that are stored in the database.

I have wamp installed on my computer as the webserver. I have also incorporated two drop down lists that both retrieve their values from tables within the database. The first drop down list retrieves the Australian States that I have stored in a table, and once the submit button is pressed, it stores the State that is selected to a separate table. This drop down list functions as it should. An extract from "From Place an order.php"

<?php
$dbcnx = @mysql_connect('localhost', 'root', 'tingling');
if (!$dbcnx) {
exit('<p>Unable to connect to the ' .
'database server at this time.</p>');
} .....

The second drop down list retrieves product names from a table that contains products and their prices. What I would like to happen, is that when the product is selected from this drop down list, a text box is automatically filled with its corresponding price. I had this drop down list working as per the "States" drop down list, but could not get it to auto populate the text field. I got some assistance from a friend and was able to get the text box to auto populate with its corresponding price, however when the page was submitted to the database, the "id" number of the product name from the drop down list was stored, and not the product name.

<select name="productSelection" onchange = "getProductDetails(this)">
<option selected value="1product">Select Product</option>
<?php
$products1 = @mysql_query('SELECT * FROM products');
if (!$products1) {
exit('<p>Unable to obtain author list from the database.</p>'); .....

Copy Dropdown Selection To Another Dropdown?

Sep 6, 2011

I have two drop-down prompt controls with month names. One has just one value (say "July") and the other has all the months of the year ("January".."December"). The first prompt control is hidden on the page. How do I set the default selection of the second prompt control to the value present in the first prompt control? So, when the page is run, the second prompt control should automatically show "July".

I was reading up on the selectedIndex property (?), but I know that it won't work because I want Index 0 to be selected in the first control and Index 6 in the second, and I expect it to change every month (next month it will be index 7 that should be automatically selected).

Jukebox - Replay List And - Create Non Dropdown List ?

Sep 1, 2010

I am trying to construct a Jukebox for my website. I have spent considerable time all over the WEB and at this forum which addressed the issue in a 50 page thread. Please see: [url]

I got a lot of ideas from this thread but still cannot figure a way to do the following within the Jukebox. These are my main two questions for everything below:

1.How can I have the Jukebox cycle through all tunes and then start over from the beginning?

2.How can I allow the user to select a tune from a list but not a drop down list, have the Jukebox start from the users selection and then play all songs to the end. Then as in #1, start over from the beginning?

Per this thread I came away with basically two ways to assemble the jukebox. One uses links in a drop down list which the user can choose from. The other is to use an .m3u playlist. The user can only select a playlist from the drop down.

Below, I have included the code for each Jukebox. To see the Jukeboxes in action please go to my website where I have posted some test pages exhibiting the jukeboxes that I am referring to.

The following is the Jukebox which utilizes an .m3u playlist. If I end up using this idea I would like the tunes in the .m3u playlist to be displayed and allow the user to be able to choose a tune in the list. Then have the list play to the end of all tunes in the list. Then start over from the beginning of the list. After this code is the .m3u playlist.

Go to url removed and click on the link that says:

Jukebox utilizing an .m3u playlist:

Here is the .m3u playlist for the above code:

The following code is for the Jukebox that has a list of links in a dropdown list. If I go with this idea, I would like for the list not to be a dropdown list but just a list of tunes. The user should be able to click on any tune in the list and the player should start from that point, play all the remaining tunes in the list and then start from the beginning.

Go to url removed and click on the link that says:

Another idea I found on the WEB also uses an .m3u playlist. The good thing about it is that it lists all the tunes in the playlist which the user can then select from. This jukebox calls up an entire Windows Media Player. If I was to use this idea I would like to be able to disable the left side of the player where the user has options such as burning to CD, Media Guide, Radio Tuner etc

Div To Appear Based On Dropdown Selection?

Aug 2, 2011

Code:
<div id="1">
<asp:DropDownList ID="DD1" runat="server">
<asp:ListItem>option1</asp:ListItem>
<asp:ListItem>option2</asp:ListItem>

[Code]....

I want the div with the id of "option2show" to be hidden unless the user has selected option 2 in the dropdown box.

If the user has selected option 1 then nothing will happen, however iff option 2 has been selected then the option2 div will appeaar. I would like this to happen before any submit buttons are press, so i guess onblur of the dropdown box.

Default To Certain Dropdown Selection

Jan 13, 2011

If I have a dropdown menu like so:
Code:
<select name='statecode' id='statecode'>
<option value=''>Choose State</option>
<option value='AK' >Alaska</option>
<option value='etc' >etc</option>
</select>

How would I go about making the default SELECTED go to the state depending on a php variable? Let's say I have a variable passed to this page called "stateCode"
-If the variable's value is AK, how would I make the default option shown SELECTED be Alaska?
-If the variable is TX, how would I make it default Texas?

Send The Dropdown Selection To Another Page?

Oct 18, 2009

I would like to know how can I send the selection from a dropdown from a webpage to another. In the first page where I have the dropdown list, I have this:

<input name="time" style="width:100%" />

The issue I have with this is that the value dispalyed for the "time2" element is the actual attribute value (for instance 60) and not the actual value (for instance "Minutes").

Multiple Variables From One Dropdown Selection

Feb 13, 2010

Is it possible to pull multiple variables from a single dropdown menu selection?

Example:
I have this:
function material_choices_menu() /* Provides Specific Gravity for various materials */{
var data = "Material <select name='material'>";
data += "<option value='.926'>CYCOLAC MG47 (ABS)</option>";
data += "<option value='1.050'>CYCOLAC MG47MD (ABS)</option>";
data += "<option value='.958'>CYCOLAC T (ABS)</option>";
data += "</select>";
document.write(data);
}

I'd like to have multiple option values:
function material_choices_menu() /* Provides Specific Gravity for various materials */{
var data = "Material <select name='material'>";
data += "<option value1='.926', option value2='.005-.008'>CYCOLAC MG47 (ABS)</option>";
data += "<option value1='1.050', option value2='.005-.008'>CYCOLAC MG47MD (ABS)</option>";
data += "<option value1='.958', option value2='.005-.008'>CYCOLAC T (ABS)</option>";
data += "</select>";
document.write(data);
}

I plan to use the first value in some math formulas to determine weights and the rest of the values will just be shown as data for the user and/or possibly a link to the datasheet for the material selected.

IE Not Recognizing Dropdown Selection In JS Form?

Mar 18, 2011

I'm encountering errors with a form I have created. I feel confident that the issue is with my JS validation form because when I allow the form to submit without validating any of the fields, my php processor correctly uploads all the content into my database (but, I will need the form validation to prevent the user from skipping fields).

The issue (I believe) is with IE. In IE, both drop-downs seem to populate correctly but when I submit the form, I get a prompt to make a selection for the first drop-down menu.

The form does submit properly in FireFox and Safari but with some testing I noticed that I was getting a prompt to make a selection in the first drop-down in instances where a selection was already made but I just had not yet populated the second country/state drop-down.

Still, in Firefox and Safari, the form does pass validation upon submit.. So, I am hoping it's just IE specific issue.

I'm thinking the issue is with IE not recognizing my selection. The form had a drop-down menu where the user selects a letter, then that selection triggers (in JS using a function to process the selection) another drop-down to populate with all the countries or states that begin with the letter from the first selection.

Here is the code from my form:

<p><span class="title">Sign Up</span></p>
<br />
<form id = "signupForm" action="signup_process.php" method = "post" onsubmit="return validateSignupForm();">

[Code].....

what could be going on in IE that is not allowing the form to pass JS validation..

Evaluate Options In Dropdown For Unique Selection?

Jul 23, 2005

I don't know how to evaluate the no-blank selections against each other from a form as follows: .

I have a form with 6 dropdown fields, each containing a selection of 30 options (the 30 options are the same for each dropdown list). The user needs to select 'one of the 30 options' from each dropdown selection, but each option they select must be unique (no duplicate selections) or it must be left blank. E.g. The user can select Option3 within "dropdown1", but must select a different option for the other dropdowns - OR leave them unselected.

Reservation System - Selection Per DropDown Menu

Mar 4, 2010

I am creating a website for a friend where the user cant can choose what jobs they want to do while a event. There a are more than 300 people involved so I found a script that worked fine but it used some checkboxes, and I want to use drop down menu (one drop down menu for every day of the event). With the checkboxes it worked fine but when I modify the part to insert the dropdown menu and that on my webpage I choose a job and then I send it and it tells me that I haven't selected anything.

This is the PHP code of the webpage:
<?php include("login.php"); ?>
<html>
<head>
<title>Tickets</title>
<style>
* {
font-size: 11px;
font-family: arial;

Hiding Dropdown Menus Based On Selection

Sep 8, 2010

i am building a website form which I would like the user to select a product of interest. Some products are three tiered and some are two tiered.

1. Example of three tier (3 dropdowns required only):Scooters (dropdown 1)Three Wheel Scooters (dropdown 2)
Delux 503S Bird Scooter (dropdown 3)

2. Example of two tier (2 dropdowns required only):Standing Bikes (dropdown 1)Children 300 Series (dropdown 2)

If the user wants to submit their interest for one of the products, I need to have at most 3 dropdown menus. So in Example 1, I would have 3 dropdowns in my form. Dropdown 1: Scooters Dropdown 2: Three Wheel Scooters Dropdown 3: Delux 503S Bird Scooter.In Example 2, I would only need to use the first 2 dropdown menus. (Obviously the first dropdown would contain 'Scooters' and 'Standing Bikes' in the menu list)I would like to alter the code so that the second and third dropdowns are hidden until a selection from the first drop down is made. Once for example, 'Standing Bikes' is selected from the first dropdown menu, the second dropdown menu appears and the third remains hidden due to the fact that it is not required. If I selected Scooters from the first dropdown menu, the second dropdown would appear listing all items associated with this and at this point the third dropdown menu is hidden. If i select 'Three Wheel Scooter' from the second dropdown the third dropdown menu now appears listing all Three wheel Scooters such as 'Delux 503S Bird Scooter'.
