2 Multi List Selection Boxes Assistance


Recommended Posts



I have to two multi list select boxes side by side. The first has all the options that the user can select which they can select and transfer to the other multi list select box. I have used javascript to create the buttons which allow you to add and remove selections from the right multi list box.


Once I hit submit all the selections go to a mysql database, which is fine.


However my problem is that the selected options don't stay in the right hand mulit list box after submission.


So I need to know how I can keep them in there, or maybe populate that right hand multi list box with the submitted selections.


FYI: once the selections are submitted  they are stored in a text field in mysql database, so I need them to come back, as options in the right hand multi list box.


Hope this makes sense


Below is a link to something similar, just need to sort out the php side




Many Thanks
