Option Menu Selection As Plain Text

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have a registration form with option menus.  Once a member, the  visitor can alter their information.  In order to prevent them from altering some fields, I have stopped the options menus from updating the db but they still appear as option menus.  I would like the option to just appear as fixed text on the page. 

I did this without any problem with the information stored on the db as text but I am having problems with the information stored as numbers.  The options are saved on the db as id numbers which correspond to the options' names (i.e. id# 14 is the id for "Green").  it seems the only way I can have the selected option correctly reappear is in an  options menu. When I try I can only get the first or last option never the option the member chose.

I'd appreciate any suggestions.

The HTML part
[code]
<tr>
  <td align="right" valign="top"><strong>{TXT_COLOURS}</strong></td>
  <td>
 
 
<select name="colours" id="colours" class="textbox">
                                              <!-- BEGIN: colours_opts -->
                                                <option value="{VAL_COLOURS_ID}" {COLOURS_SELECTED}>{VAL_COLOURS_NAME}</option>
                                              <!-- END: colours_opts -->
                                              </select>

                                               

  </td>
[/code]

The PHP part
[code]

$profile->assign("TXT_COLOURS",$profile['colours']);



$colours = $db->select("SELECT id, abv, name FROM ".$glob['dbprefix']."Acada_iso_colours ORDER BY name");

for($i=0; $i<count($colours); $i++){


if($colours[$i]['id'] == $acaUserData[0]['colours']){
$profile->assign("COLOURS_SELECTED","selected='selected'");
} else {
$profile->assign("COLOURS_SELECTED","");
}

$profile->assign("VAL_COLOURS_ID",$colours[$i]['id']);

$coloursName = "";
$coloursName = $colours[$i]['name'];

if(strlen($coloursName)>40){

$coloursName = substr($coloursName,0,40)."&hellip;";

}

$profile->assign("VAL_COLOURS_NAME",$coloursName);

$profile->parse("profile.session_true.colours_opts");

}


$profile->assign("VAL_COLOURS",$acaUserData[0]['colours']);
[/code]
