Hello:

I was wondering if I can get some guidance on how to pull data from mysql and inserted in js array in the following manner

var option_array = new Array(num_of_cats);

    option_array[0] = new Array(\"You need to select a category\"); // This is the first (blank) category. Don't mess with it.
    option_array[1] = new Array(\"-- Select One --\",\"\",\"\",\"\");
    option_array[2] = new Array(\"-- Select One --\",\"\",\"\");
    option_array[3] = new Array(\"-- Select One --\",\"\",\"\");
    option_array[4] = new Array(\"-- Select One --\",\"\",\"\",\"\");
    option_array[5] = new Array(\"-- Select One --\",\"\",\"\");
    option_array[6] = new Array(\"-- Select One --\",\"\",\"\");
    option_array[7] = new Array(\"-- Select One --\",\"\",\"\");
    option_array[8] = new Array(\"-- Select One --\",\"\",\"\",\"\");
    option_array[9] = new Array(\"-- Select One --\",\"\",\"\");
    option_array[10] = new Array(\"-- Select One --\",\"\",\"\");
    option_array[11] = new Array(\"-- Select One --\",\"\",\"\");
    option_array[12] = new Array(\"-- Select One --\",\"\",\"\");
    option_array[13] = new Array(\"-- Select One --\",\"\",\"\");
    option_array[14] = new Array(\"-- Select One --\",\"\",\"\");
    option_array[15] = new Array(\"-- Select One --\",\"\",\"\");
    option_array[16] = new Array(\"-- Select One --\",\"\",\"\");
    option_array[17] = new Array(\"-- Select One --\",\"\",\"\");
    option_array[18] = new Array(\"-- Select One --\",\"\",\"\");
    option_array[19] = new Array(\"-- Select One --\",\"\",\"\");

Pritaeas, thanks for your post! I do not believe json is what I'm looking for. I have since my initial post gained some grounds on this issue, but now getting som js errors.

errors:
uncaught TypeError: Cannot set property 'selectedIndex' of undefined
Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'options' of undefined

Here is what have so far: (only the js portion with php sql queries embeds)

$display_block .="
<script language='JavaScript'>
var num_of_cats = 17; // This is the number of categories, including the first, blank, category.
var open_in_newwindow=1; //Set 1 to open links in new window, 0 for no.

";
 $result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM products");

$display_block .="var option_array = new Array(num_of_cats);";

$count=1;
$display_block .="option_array[0] = new Array(\"Please Select a Merchandise\");";
while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
  {
//$display_block .=" option_array[".$count."] = new Array(\"".$row['item']."\");";
$display_block .="option_array[".$count."] = new Array(\"--select One--\",\"\",\"\");";
$count++;

}

   $result2 = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM products");

//$display_block .="<br /><br />";
$display_block .="var text_array = new Array(num_of_cats);";

$count=1;
$display_block .="text_array[0] = new Array(\"Please Select a Merchandise\");";
while($row_1 = mysql_fetch_array($result2))
  {
$display_block .=" text_array[".$count."] = new Array(\"".$row_1['product_desc']."\");";
$count++;

}

$result3 = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM products");

//$display_block .="<br /><br />";
$display_block .="var text_array2 = new Array(num_of_cats);";

$count=1;
$display_block .="text_array2[0] = new Array(\"Please Select a Merchandise\");";
while($row_2 = mysql_fetch_array($result3))
  {
$display_block .="text_array2[".$count."] = new Array(\"".$row_2['unit_cost']."\");";
$count++;

}

$result4 = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM products");

//$display_block .="<br /><br />";

while($row_3 = mysql_fetch_array($result4))
  {
$display_block .="text_array3[".$count."] = new Array(\"".$row_3['other']."\");";
$count++;

}

$display_block .="

  }

  {

  }
function box()
{

  } else {
    if (open_in_newwindow==1)
    window.open(url_array[window.document.PaymentForm.select_1.selectedIndex][window.document.PaymentForm.select_2.selectedIndex],\"_blank\");
    else
    window.location=url_array[window.document.PaymentForm.select_1.selectedIndex][window.document.PaymentForm.select_2.selectedIndex]
  }
}
function set_orig()
{
  window.document.PaymentForm.select_1.selectedIndex = 0;
  window.document.PaymentForm.select_2.selectedIndex = 0;
}
window.onload=set_orig
</script>

The above script is the js that is inside a php file. I'm able to pull the data and the arrays are created -- I'm to see this from webpage source code.

now, inside the html part of the file, I'm pulling the item list from the db and passing it to list box. the code:

$get_products = "select id as id_num, items as display_name2 from products order by id_num"; 
   $get_products_res = mysql_query($get_products) or die (mysql_error()); 

if (mysql_num_rows($get_products_res) < 1) 
  { 
       // no records 
       $display_block .="<p><em>Sorry, no records to select</em></p>"; 
    } 

  else 
   { 
    $display_block .="

<td valign='top' style='border-left: 0px solid #cccccc;' width='15%'> <form name='form_1' onSubmit='return false;'>
      <select name=\"select_1\" style='background:url(../images/product-icon.png) #FFFFFF no-repeat 30% 5%; border-width:0px; width:200px; color:#003399; text-align:center; font-size:1em' onChange=\"switch_select(); switch_text();\"> 
      <option value=\"\">-- Select an Item --</option>"; 
 while ($recs2 = mysql_fetch_array($get_products_res)) 
      { 
          $id_num = $recs2['id_num']; 
          $display_name2 = stripslashes($recs2['display_name2']); 

 $display_block .= "<option value=\"$id_num\">
               $display_name2</option>"; 

                     } 
      }

the output is:

<select name="select_1" style='background:url(../images/product-icon.png) #FFFFFF no-repeat 30% 5%; border-width:0px; width:200px; color:#003399; text-align:center; font-size:1em' onChange="switch_select(); switch_text();">

I'm getting these errors pertain to the js:
uncaught TypeError: Cannot set property 'selectedIndex' of undefined
Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'options' of undefined

here is the function which purpose is to pass additional information to textbox and texarea box on selection from the list.

function switch_text()
{
  window.document.PaymentForm.textarea_1.value = text_array[window.document.PaymentForm.select_1.selectedIndex][window.document.PaymentForm.select_2.selectedIndex];
  window.document.PaymentForm.cost.value = text_array2[window.document.PaymentForm.select_1.selectedIndex][window.document.PaymentForm.select_2.selectedIndex];
  window.document.PaymentForm.gift_card.value = text_array3[window.document.PaymentForm.select_1.selectedIndex][window.document.PaymentForm.select_2.selectedIndex];
  //window.document.PaymentForm.qty.value = text_array4[window.document.PaymentForm.select_1.selectedIndex][window.document.PaymentForm.select_2.selectedIndex];

  }
function box()
{
  if (window.document.PaymentForm.select_2.selectedIndex == 0)
  {
    alert(\"Sorry, you have to select an item\");
  } else {
    if (open_in_newwindow==1)
    window.open(url_array[window.document.PaymentForm.select_1.selectedIndex][window.document.PaymentForm.select_2.selectedIndex],\"_blank\");
    else
    window.location=url_array[window.document.PaymentForm.select_1.selectedIndex][window.document.PaymentForm.select_2.selectedIndex]
  }
}
function set_orig()
{
  window.document.PaymentForm.select_1.selectedIndex = 0;
  window.document.PaymentForm.select_2.selectedIndex = 0;
}
window.onload=set_orig

My apologies, for the lengthy code! any thoughts on those two errors:

uncaught TypeError: Cannot set property 'selectedIndex' of undefined
Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'options' of undefined

Your output appears incomplete. The <select> tag is not closed, and the errors you get may point to a missing select_2 dropdown.

Indeed! Indeed! Great catch. I have being looking at this code for hours. You have just relieved me of major fustration.

Much appreciated!
