Hi all,


I have made 2 drop down box naming client, project .
All values in this drop down box are coming from database. I am fetching all value through sql query. First drop down box is showing all client which are in database. Second drop down box is also showing all project which are in database.

For example, I have three client whose name are sam,due,joy. Each of have these have different project . Like sam have project like pro2, pro3 and due have DTL,Pro1 and joy have pro5,CMM,PPC like this.

Now problem is that when i select First client from drop down then it should only show that project in second drop down box which project come under first client .But this is showing all projects which exists in database.

I do not know what event i will have to use for this . As i think like onchange or onselect event and what type of code i will have to use for these events. If there is another way to solve this problem. So how i can do this . Please help me.
Thanks,
Gagan

Have an onchange event for the first select box and submit the page. Then use this selected value and query the table and display relevant options in second selectbox.

hi Naveen,
Thanks for reply.

But i want to do whole this before submit button. because i want to select first drop down box then is should be changed in second drop down box after that i want to use use submit button.

please help me to solve this.

hi,
thanks for reply,

This is the problem i do not know what code i should use for this in AJAX. Because these all value which are in drop down box exists in database.

Please help me if it is possible by you.

yes ajax is simple code available on internet.
the working behind that is like you will select the value from 1st drop down and that value will pass to a new form and that will fetch the values of 2nd dropdown from database and will show at your page without submiting the page

Yep! Try with w3school's ajax examples. Have an onchange event in first selectbox, which when changed calls an ajax function to query the table (by passing the selected value of the first selectbox) and return respective records.

hi,
thanks for reply,

I ma using this ajax code for my file. But this is not giving output as my expectation.

<script language="javascript">



function getProjectList(sel)
{
	var category = sel.options[sel.selectedIndex].value;
	document.getElementById('client1').options.length = 0;	// Empty city select box
	if(category.length>0){
		var index = ajax.length;
		ajax[index] = new sack();
		
		ajax[index].requestFile = 'test1.php?category='+category;	// Specifying which file to get
		//ajax[index].onCompletion = function(){ createSubCategories(index) };	// Specify function that will be executed after file has been found
		ajax[index].runAJAX();		// Execute AJAX function
	}
}

</script>

please help me to sove this probem.

HI all,

Thanks for giving so much cooperation.

Now i am sending you whole my code which i am using . But problem is that i am not getting value in second drop down box when i am selecting one client from first drop down box.

Here is code of ajax which i am using for this implementation:-

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
function getXMLHTTP() { //fuction to return the xml http object
		var xmlhttp=false;	
		try{
			xmlhttp=new XMLHttpRequest();
		}
		catch(e)	{		
			try{			
				xmlhttp= new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
			}
			catch(e){
				try{
				xmlhttp = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP");
				}
				catch(e1){
					xmlhttp=false;
				}
			}
		}
		 	
		return xmlhttp;
    }
	
	function getProject(clientId) {		
		
		var strURL="book.php?clientid="+clientId;
		var req = getXMLHTTP();
		
		if (req) {
			
			req.onreadystatechange = function() {
				if (req.readyState == 4) {
					// only if "OK"
					if (req.status == 200) {						
						document.getElementById('project1').innerHTML=req.responseText;						
					} else {
						alert("There was a problem while using XMLHTTP:\n" + req.statusText);
					}
				}				
			}			
			req.open("GET", strURL, true);
			req.send(null);
		}		
	}
}
</script>

Here is code for book.php:-which i am calling in ajax file--

<select name="client" id="client" size="0" class="txtbx"  onChange="getProject(this.value)">

                           <option value="" selected ><? echo $row004['1'];?></option> 
						   
						  <?  $sql="select * from cli_em_book group by client asc";

$query=mysql_query($sql,$link);

while($res=mysql_fetch_array($query)){

?>

<option value="<?=$res['id']?>"><?=ucfirst($res['client']);?></option>


<? } ?>

           

            </select></td>
			

            <td width="17%" align="center"><? echo $country=intval($_GET['clientid']); ?><select name="project1" id="project1" class="txtbx" >

while($res=mysql_fetch_array($query)){

?>

<option value="<?=ucfirst($res[project])?>"><?=ucfirst($res[project])?></option>  

<? } ?></select>           


but problem is that as i find it 

it is not giving value of  intval($_GET['clientid'] for this variable.
when i am printing value for this variable it is giving value 0.

Please help me . where i am wrong or what code should i use for this .

It is very urgent for me.

Thanks,
Gagan

hi
i modified your code
now just you test this code,may be your problem will be solved.
so you need to add get_City() function in the change event of sate listbox in findState.php file
i add get_City() and get_State function on change event of list box where i passed the id of both list box and called the ajax function

Hi,

Thanks for so much help. I also tried this code as you give me when i select country from this first drop down box list and there is no value or no text is shown in state and city select drop down box.

I do not know what is the reason behind this. Please help me.

Hope your code is not showing any errors.
Also i think u havet tried alerting the "req.responseText" after satus 200
if not try that.

check whether u r getting required output in correct format.
anything inside a list menu will not be displayed if it is not correct format.

have you added a line like the one in below, to get as req.responseText?

echo "<option value='$id'>$project</option>";

or check whether the id u passed as argument in reaching there.

i think checking these two may solve ur problem also try alerting everything u need in a step by step method, it will give u a better control over ajax calls,
u will defenitly know what is happening there.

Hi all,

when i am running this whole code of all files on localhost on another machine then it is displaying all value or select box value very well.

But when i m running same file in my system FTP or localhost on my system when i am selecting country from first drop down box then it is not showing any value in 2nd and 3rd drop down box..

I am not understanding . Is there any problem in my system wamp or php.ini file

I am thinking that i should copy the php.ini file from another system( where the code is running well) in my system.

is this right or if any other solution is there regarding this. Please suggest me.

Thanks
Gagan

hi

I don't think than this code is related to php.ini file.

Hope that your system's browser have a java script enabled
and your system have a table name is same and all file path is also same which u all ready run in another system right.

So how this is possible that on one system code running and another have a not.
u need to check all this code by alerting value which passed by the function and also response.text value which called by the ajax.

hi,
As you asked me to check it in my system using alert in everyline.

I found that ajax function is not calling by html script in my code. That is the reason i am not getting country id in strURL and it is unable to show the value in 2nd select box.

Ajax function is not calling . Can u please tell me the reason behind this. Please suggest me.

Thanks for so much help.
