I have a multipart form.  The first page has data input including Select fields.  To my knowledge, you can not pass arrays through as Hidden Fields.  This being the case, how do you pass the Select Drop down list through as hidden variables?

You have to serialize the array, pass that, and unserialize it in the recieving script.

Example:
In your form:
<input type="hidden" name="somename" value='<?php echo serialize($_POST['dropdown']); ?>'>
In the processing script:
$somename = unserialize($_POST['somename'];
