Dynamic Date Dropdown Box

Recommended Posts

ok, i would like to make a set of drop-down boxes where people can select the date
but say, if you selected March, the second dropdown box would automatically have 31 days
or if you selected April, there would only be 30

is this possible with php / how would i do it...

thanks in advance :)

Better to do something like this with javascript

[code]<script>
        function daymenu(form, m) {
                 da = new Array(31,28,31,30);
                 n = form.day.options.length;
                    //clear array
                 for (var i=1; i <= n; i++) {
                      form.day.options[i] = null;
                 }
                    //add new values for new month

                 for (i=1; i <= da[m-1]; i++) {
                      form.day.options[i] = new Option(i, i, false);
                 }

        }
</SCRIPT>

<FORM>
      <SELECT  name='month' onChange='daymenu(this.form, this.value);'>

        <OPTION value=''>- Month -</OPTION>
        <OPTION value='1'>Jan</OPTION>
        <OPTION value='2'>Feb</OPTION>
        <OPTION value='3'>Mar</OPTION>
        <OPTION value='4'>Apr</OPTION>
        </SELECT>

        <SELECT  name='day'>
        <OPTION>-day-</OPTION>
        </SELECT>
</FORM>[/code]

if(round((Year+1900)/4) != ((Year+1900)/4)){

Try

[code]$febDays = date('t', mktime(0,0,0,2,1,date('Y')));[/code]
