So basically, as soon as my page loads I need to have a pre-loaded date to my drop-down boxes and in my textfields that came from my database as you will see if you go over my code. My drop-down boxes are auto-filled with the months-days-years because of my javascript. As I load the page, it gets my chosen date but it also adds an additional month, day and year at the top most part f the selection. Can anyone tell me what's wrong?

Hi vibhadevit,

Thank you for the code. I'll try it for now.

vibhadevit,

I am accessing a stored date in my database so basically what I posted at the top was working but you did manually select a date, so is there any possible to access a date that came from my database and as soon as my page loads, it will display the date from my drop-downs and to a textfield. Thank you.

experts anyone? for help... I'm retrieving a date from my database (I'm using MySQL)and upon the loading of my page it will already select (show) in my dropdown boxes the date that I retrieved from my database.

MySQL date being retrieved is: 2010-07-10 (for example)

As I load my page...

([July] [10] [2010]) <- these are my dropdowns [datepicker.jpg] etc etc etc...

at least can you help me debug my code so that I can get it to work the right way of retrieving and showing it. oh, btw my dropdown boxes are auto-populated by my js thanks.

or maybe can someone direct me to a site where there is an example of dropdown boxes that are auto-populated as to retrieving (date) it will correspond to the dropboxes as the pages loads

If you are using jquery you have to write js code to let dropdown selected.
Its nothing wrong to write js code.
I posted is just for month remain selected.You can write it for textbox,day,year same way.
