PHP drop down list format question

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

I've created a PHP/Mysql query drop down list and it works, however I would like to customize/format the windows default drop down design.

I would like the end user to see just a box with a heading and when they move their mouse over the box the drop down displays the data that is pulled from Mysql database using the PHP script.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

you can't do that with php. you have to use javascript. php is parsed on the server. javascript is parsed on the client. and anyways, as far as i know, unless you otherwise specify, it will already be the individual client's browser default.

klaroen: Here is the script....

<?php
$dogs = mysql_query("SELECT nick_name FROM dogs WHERE username='$uname'", $connection)or die(mysql_error());
echo "<select dogs='nick_name'>";
while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($dogs)){
echo "<option> $row[nick_name]</option>";
}
echo "</select>";
?>

I'm not familiar with Java, but I'll jump over to that forum and see what they have to offer in assistance.
