I just want a simple drop-down list where a specific value is automatically selected according to the data stored in the database.

 

Ex:

<select name="select_blah_1">
    <option name="1" value="1" selected="true">
    <option name="2" value="2" selected="false">
</select>

 

How would I go about doing that?

<select name="select_blah_1">

    <option name="1" value="1" selected="true">

    <option name="2" value="2" selected="false">

</select>

 

^^ those are your code

 

 

while($row=mysql_fetch_assoc(put the query result here))

  {

$option='<option name="2" value='.$row[put some result of query].' selected='.$row[put some result of query].'>';

}

 

<select name="select_blah_1">

  <?=$option?>

 

</select>

 

try to understand and debug if comma or dots are the error any way the logic is there thats all you need to do and learn

hope that helps bro

<?=$option?>???

 

same as  <? echo $option;?>

 

this variables are what we have above on the while loop remember

 

and wait to understand what my codes really mean do have an idea about php mysql if you do

then it will be easier for you to understand any way ask if theres still bothering you

 

ASTIG!!!
