Replace this

<option value="<?php echo $row['sid'] ?>"><?php echo $row['name'] ?></option>

with

<option value="<?php echo $row['sid'] ?>" <?php if($_POST["u_state"]==$row['sid']) echo "selected"; ?>><?php echo $row['name'] ?></option>

for city

<option  value="<?php echo $row['cityid'] ?>" <?php if($_POST["s_city"]==$row['cityid']) echo "selected"; ?>><?php echo $row['cityname'] ?></option>

You want it so the select box remembers what city you have picked?

var lastTown = '<?php if(ctype_alnum($_GET['town'])){echo $_GET['town'];}?>';
function showUser(str){
	if(str==""){
		 document.getElementById("txtHint").innerHTML="";
		 return;
	}
	if (window.XMLHttpRequest){// code for IE7+, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari
		xmlhttp=new XMLHttpRequest();
	}else{// code for IE6, IE5
		xmlhttp=new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
	}
	xmlhttp.onreadystatechange=function() {
		if (xmlhttp.readyState==4 && xmlhttp.status==200){
			lastTown = str;
			document.getElementById("txtHint").innerHTML=xmlhttp.responseText;
		}
	}
	xmlhttp.open("GET","getcity.php?q="+str,true);
	xmlhttp.send();
}


/*put this at end of page*/
if(lastTown != ''){
	showUser(lastTown);
}

The Problem is javascript is client-side so on page refresh anything picked in javascript is lost, you could get the page to redirect to itself with a GET variable of the town - then the user can refresh that as much as he wants and get the same town.

eg.

window.location = 'mypage.php?town='+str;

post vars are sent from one page such as a form to a formprocess page. Just requesting a URL does not send any post vars so there is nothing to print out - it hasn't got any post vars.

You should set a default city incase it is empty

At end of your page place this code

<?php
if(isset($_POST["u_state"]))
{
?>
<script type="text/javascript">
showUser(<?php echo $_POST["u_state"]; ?>);
</script>
<?php
}
?>
