Dynamic Menus

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have got a site that needs to have three dynamic menus and several text boxes to be to visble throughoput the select process. The application is a database select and display system with all the data residing in mySql tables.

I have a main page with three functions defined on it. These functions call PHP files, action the results using "onchange" and display the results on the main page using <span ids>. This process works fine and recalls data from the database etc fine.

The problem is that anyone visiting this page would just see the opening menu displayed, the rest of the page is blank. As each menu is selected the next menu pops up and so on. When all selections have been made the screen displays as it should and you can backtrack and change any menu settingas you want and it does dynamically change everything as required.

The problem is anyone using this WEB page would see a page building in front of thier eyes as they make selections. I need the opening page to display the page at it would look when all selections are made but with blank boxes with associated captions etc.

I have trie to put holding textboxes on the page but these seem to be over written when one of the functions are selected.

Any help or ideas would be most welcome.

This sounds more like something that could be accomplished using Javascript.
