option value


Recommended Posts

I'm having the strangest thing happing.

When posting a form i'm not getting the option value. Instead its posting my text field


ie: <option name="1">text</option>


$query  = "SELECT id, name FROM locations ORDER BY name";
$res = mysql_query($query, $cid);
while($a = mysql_fetch_array($res)) {
	echo "<option name=".$a["id"].">".$a["name"]."</option>";


The code thats grapping it:
   $location = "";
   echo '<div class="message error">Please enter a <strong>Location</strong></div>';
   $location = $_POST['location'];


Can anyone see why? I have also tried it in html to see if its my php, but i get the same result
