Hi everyone,

 

I am trying to have "require" label on form. If someone did not select the option on list, then "require" label will appear in form after submit.

 

Seem my code isn't work. what did I do wrong?

 

<?php$buzz = $buzz2 = ""; if ($_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD'] == "POST") {    if (empty($_POST['select'])) {        $buzz = "<h2><color color='red'> >- </color></h2>";        $buzz2 = "<h2><color='red'> -< </color></h2>";    }} ?><!DOCTYPE html><html lang="en"><head>    <meta charset="UTF-8">    <title>XXXXXX</title>    <link href="default.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"></head><body><fieldset><h1>XXXXXXX</h1>    <table>        <form action="login.php" method="post">            <select name="select">                <?php echo $buzz ?><option value="" >Please select the level</option><?php echo $buzz2 ?>                <option value="Administrator">Administrator</option>                <option value="License">License</option>                <option value="Scorer">Scorer</option>            </select>        <caption>Please login to enter the site below:</caption>        <tr><td>Username:</td><td class="td"><input type="text" name="user"></td></tr>        <tr><td>Password:</td><td class="td"><input type="password" name="password"></td></tr>        <tr><td colspan="2"><input type="submit" name="submitted" value="Login"></td></tr>        </form>    </table></fieldset></body></html>

I think your $buzz and $buzz2 need to come before and after the <select>'s and then you need to make the blank option selected.

<?php echo ($buzz)?$buzz:""; ?> 
<select name="select">
  <option value="" <?php echo ($buzz)?"selected":""; ?>>Please select the level</option>
  <option value="Administrator">Administrator</option>
  <option value="License">License</option>
  <option value="Scorer">Scorer</option>
<select>
<?php echo ($buzz2)?$buzz2:""; ?>

you could try using the "required" property

<select name="select" required>
  <option value="">Please select the level</option>
  <option value="Administrator">Administrator</option>
  <option value="License">License</option>
  <option value="Scorer">Scorer</option>
<select>
