loading select box from php

Recommended Posts

we are loading a selct box in ato an html page via AJAX weith this script. The
select box shows up fine, but the alert box does not trigger  when we select items.

echo "<select name= \"MySelect\" onChange=\"Alert('Hi')\">";
while ($LBOXROW=mysql_fetch_array($LBOXFIND,MYSQL_ASSOC)){
$MYNAME=$LBOXROW[SPNAME];$PINDEX=$LBOXROW[PINDEX];
echo "<option value=\"$PINDEX\">$MYNAME</option>\n";
}//while
echo "</select>";

Thanks,

Jennifer

Hi natalieG,

I think I found your problem javascript is case sensitive use a small "a" for Alert, you need to chage ur code :
[quote]
echo "<select name= \"MySelect\" onChange=\"Alert('Hi')\">";
[/quote]
To this:
[quote]
echo "<select name= \"MySelect\" onChange=\"alert('Hi')\">";
[/quote]

Here is a full example seperate of databse connectivity:
[quote]
<html>
<body>
<?php
echo "<select name= \"MySelect\" onChange=\"alert('Hi')\">\n";
$i =0;
while ($i < 5){
$i ++;
$MYNAME= "Option".$i;
echo "<option value=\"$i\">$MYNAME</option>\n";
}
echo "</select>\n";
?>
</body>
</html>
[/quote]

If you still have troubles give me a shout.  ;)
