Getting data uning a form

Recommended Posts

Im trying to get a field to display on the same page by using a mysql table and a form a drop down menu / submit button. The drop down menu is populated with the names fields within the table. When I hit the submit button I want the dynamic data returned for that specific name. I am not sure how to get the forum to react this way. Any help please im very lost here

[code]<form id="appview" name="appview" method="post" action="get">
  <select name="select">
do { 
    <option value="<?php echo $row_appview['gamename']?>"><?php echo $row_appview['gamename']?></option>
} while ($row_appview = mysql_fetch_assoc($appview));
  $rows = mysql_num_rows($appview);
  if($rows > 0) {
      mysql_data_seek($appview, 0);
  $row_appview = mysql_fetch_assoc($appview);

  <input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit" />

Let me get this correct.

Pass 1. You want a user to click on an item from a select-box that is populated from the database (with $row_appview['gamename').
Pass 2. After submit you want to display some other items (depending on the selected gamename) from the database to the user.

Does that sum up your problem?
