Then on selecting sub product ,the content of that sub product will be displayed in ckeditor. When I update the ckeditor content will be updated and reflected to the web page.

I'm assuming that the text from the subproduct dropdown is not what you want in the editor - I take it that your DB is holding some descriptive text/images etc about that subproduct.
Ajax should be able to fill the editor for you.

Your onchange or .change() event for the subproduct dropdown should:

1) Run a js getInfo() function, which should have statements for retrieving the subproduct dropdown selected value - easy for jQuery:

var id = $('#subproduct').val();

2) Pass this via ajax to a php file to retrieve the info, which then echoes the info within the file itself, e.g.

echo $row['description'];

3) The js function then updates the editor with this info.

When you finish editing the info in the box, have an 'update' button that you can press to run another ajax function, which does an update to the DB.

Hi diafol,

Thanks for early response but here is my code:
in findsubproduct.php

<?php 
mysql_select_db('db_ajax');
$query="SELECT Subproductid,Subproductname FROM subproduct WHERE productid='$product'";
$result=mysql_query($query);
?>
<select name="subproduct" id="subproduct" onchange="getcontent(<?php echo $product?>,this.value)">
<option>Select State</option>
<?php while($row=mysql_fetch_array($result)) 
   { 
   ?>
   <option value=<?php echo $row['subproductid']?>><?php echo $row['subproductname']?></option>
<?php 
    }
     ?>
</select>

and in cms.php here is ajax code with ckeditor :

Now what should I do to bring content from database from subproduct selected value to ckeditor ?

Hi ,
in cms.php country,state ,countryid and stateid will be replaced by product,productid,subproduct and subproductid

sorry for the mistake

OK - here's some old code I dusted down and refactored slighly for you. It's not an exact fit and it doesn't deal with ckeditor - but that's the easy bit:
It makes use of jQuery...

main.php

<?php
    $call = 'first';
    include('ajax.php');
?>

    </select>
    <textarea id="editor"><?php echo $subproduct_desc;?></textarea>
    <div id="msg"></div>
    <input type="submit" name="submit" id="submit" value="Update" />
</form>
<script>
    function getSubProducts(){
        var p = $('#products').val();
        $.ajax({
          type: "POST",
          url: "ajax.php",
          dataType: "json",
          data: { call: 'getsubproducts', product_id: p }
        }).done(function( data ) {
          $('#subproducts').html(data.subproducts);
          $('#editor').val(data.subproduct_desc);

SO what's the problem? My code will allow you to change subprods on prod change and load subprod description whenever subprod changes. It also updates any changes via the update button.

If you're struggling with getting data from the editor for an ajax update, you can do this:

var editor_data = CKEDITOR.instances.editor1.getData();

If your textarea id is set to "editor1".

But this is getting into JS now.
