you just call it by the name of the from element with the $_POST or $_GET array like so:

echo $_GET['selectname'];
//or
echo $_POST['selectname'];

I Tried it but it's not workin !!

try this in this way :

$hunt="SELECT dukja FROM anything WHERE id=$gngr";
$pols=$mysqli->qyery(query);
while($row=$pols->fetch_object())
{
$liger=$row->dukja;
?>"<option value='category'>"<?php echo $liger ?>"</option>"<?php;
}
