I have a PHP drop down select list script that uses the default client side formatting but I would like to jazz up what my customer sees.

I've seen many Java script menu builder applications out there, but I don't know that I can impart PHP to these scripts. can anyone help in giving me a small example of how to marry Java script with my PHP drop down select list script.

Here is the PHP script...

$dogs = mysql_query("SELECT nick_name FROM dogs WHERE username='$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>";

you could pass the option values as an array from php to js and then let js build the dropdown instead of php.


   $x = 'blah';

<script language = 'javascript'>
var x = <?= $x ?>

Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)
