Hello all. I am a college student currently studying programming and web design. As a credited project, I will be developing a website for a local company. Can any of you direct me to resources related to coding a search with drop down criteria, a button to "click to fax", and a shopping cart feature? I spoke with my professor and he suggested software. But I am interested in doing as much as I can without buying software. I am willing and eager to learn. Any information is greatly appreciated. Book titles welcome!
Thanks ~ Alison

Can you use Google? If so, your PC should be as good as ours in retrieving search results. Try www.google.com or your local site, e.g. www.google.co.uk

Works for me.

I have searched google. Perhaps I am not wording my search correctly. I am looking for the way to write the code. I will try again. I'm sorry if anyone thought I was asking you to search google for me. I was hoping someone would have a favorite site they like to reference or a book they have found helpful. My apologies.

No, don't apologise - my fault, feeling grouchy. Try sourceforge for loads of free open source scripts.

If you're looking for dropdown/suggestion boxes for searching, Ajax will probably do. There are LOADS of implementations available. You could try to roll your own, but jQuery and prototype (javascript libraries) both offer really good examples.

Shopping carts can be fiendishly difficult to set up - even the 'mature' open source ones are more than a little complicated to integrate to your site if you're not so sure of your coding. Most come with 'installers' and may suit you. If this is to be a live site - you'll also need a payment processor (PayPal or Google offer easy options).

I've heard a few people talk of PamFax (http://www.pamfax.biz/en/), but have never used it myself. I *think* faxes will incur a cost. I haven't come across free PC to FAX yet.

Hi!
Well, maybe I will not add smth really valuable in this post, but anyway...I just have googled your question, I used diff. word combinations and Google gave a me a great results! There are so many tutorails about codding! But as my fav. I can offer you to join codingforums.com - really great place and you can learn a lot from there!! And btw, one guy over there even found his on-line "coding-guru" :) who taught his on-line...maybe you will be such lucky as well! Good luck!

Best regards

You search for drop down list is easy if you have database then just only bind with that display what data you want,and click to fax, put link on button,and for a shopping cart you just make a table price,product name,quantity,and customer name all detail put in this table and bind shopping cart with this and you get the proper answer for that,you search on Internet and many books are there you find from library or Internet,I think it help you.
