Form Question

Recommended Posts

I believe this is done with PHP...

I want two form fields, first, a State Selection, so you choose a state. Then dependent on the state you choose, the next field, Towns, has the list of towns for that state. I have all the states/towns already, I just need the basic code to perform that action. Also, when you select a Town I want it to automatically link to a specified link.

Any help / pointers in the right direction would be much appreciated.

Thank you!

No it isn't really php it is Javascript that you need. The user will select in the first and you need javascript to update the second. You will have to pre-load all of the towns when the page loads unless you use AJAX which is a combination of php and style sheet and javascript. This way by using an invisible frame you can use a get to query the database return only the towns you need and use javascript to pull the list into the next select. It is quite a long and difficult proccess if you haven't done it before.

Have a look at the Ajax implementation of your request at Chained Select Boxes at [url=http://www.dhtmlgoodies.com/index.html?page=ajax]http://www.dhtmlgoodies.com/index.html?page=ajax[/url].
