Dependant List Boxes?

Recommended Posts

Hi again guys,

I was wondering if there's any way of coding dependant list boxes in PHP? What I mean buy that is the values of one list box(child) is chaged depending on the values of another(parent)?

So I have 2 list boxes...

Example:

1. Make
2. Model

Make contains:  Taylormade
                        Ping
                        Nike

So if Ping is chosen in the first box I want the Model box to populate with Ping models:

G5
Rapture
G2
etc...

Or if Taylormade is chosen I want the Model box to populate with Taylormade models:

R7 Quad
R5 Series
etc...

Any ideas??

If you mean that you want it to happen instantly, and both boxes be on the same page, i think that's a javascript thing.

If they are to appear on consecutive pages, then php can be used.

Yeah I want it to appear on the same page. So the instant one is changed, so is the value of the other!
Is it definatly javascript?

Does anyone know a way this can be done?

www.carzone.ie have a good example. You select the type of car and it fills the next box with the models of that car.
