Recommended Posts

I hope I am in the right place. I have a country array and I need the USA value to be the default value. what changes to the empty"=>"-Select-")); do i need. If I change select to USA it is just a lable. I am trying to select a value in the array an make it the current record.

 

    App::import("Vendor","ListingFieldProperties");
    }
    ?>
    <h2 class="module_title"><?php echo __("Select Country");?></h2>
    <?php
    $options = ListingFieldProperties::getCountriesOptions();
    echo $form->input(ListingFieldProperties::COUNTRY_FIELD,array("type"=>"select","options"=>$options,"label"=>"","empty"=>"-Select-"));
    ?>
    <h2 class="module_title state_field_title"><?php echo __("Select State");?></h2>
    <?php
    //$options = ListingFieldProperties::getStateOptions();
    $options = array();
    echo $form->input(ListingFieldProperties::STATE_FIELD,array("type"=>"select","options"=>$options,"label"=>"","empty"=>"All"));
    ?>
    <div id='state_city_search_animation_div'></div>
    <h2 class="module_title city_field_title"><?php echo __("Select City");?></h2>
    <?php
    $options = array();

Hard to give an answer as the $form class you are using is not a standard class bundled with PHP. It is most likely a form helper class bundled with a framework you are using. Could you tell what framework you are using?

Looks like it could be CakePHP.

 

If so, would put this:

$options = ListingFieldProperties::getCountriesOptions();

in the controller:

$this->set('countries', ListingFieldProperties::getCountriesOptions());

 

and set the default in the controller as well:

$defaultCountry = /* whatever the ID of USA is */;

 

So you end up with this in the view:

echo $form->input(ListingFieldProperties::COUNTRY_FIELD,array("type"=>"select","options"=>$countries,"label"=>"","default"=>$defaultCountry));

Yes, it is cakephp,unfortunitly I cannot code PHP but I understand how it works and can figure out changes based on other code. I will give it a try. I am assuming the controller is in the cake folder. Thankyou for your replies.
