I'm using the exact code snippet (Step 1 of the Simple Version) from this page hosted by the developers of BreezingForms for Joomla!, modified only to have the correct table and field names, and the name of the select list in the form: http://crosstec.de/media/kunena/attachments/59203/BreezingFormsscriptdev.txt

All I want to do in BreezingForms is to populate a select list with the "address" field as name and "buildingID" as value. I don't need the scripts in Step 2, 3, etc. because I don't need to populate other form fields. However with this code inserted in Advanced > Form Options > Form Pieces > Before Form box, the select list fails to even show up on the page with the form, see here: http://catondesigngroup.com/websites/joooid/select-test/view/form.html

The form field label "Select List" is there, but the select list box fails to appear. I don't see any reason why it doesn't work. What's wrong here? Please help!

*Note: I omitted these two lines of code because I don't need usernames or user ID's, however trying to implement these lines of code does help any:
$user = &JFactory::getUser(); // get the user via JFactory
$userid = $user->id; // you may need to use a different value for this or none

=========START CODE=============


$rows = ff_select("SELECT buildingID, address
FROM ty43k_building_inspection");
$listdata = "0;Please make a selection;0\n";
for ($i = 0; $i < count($rows); $i++) {
$listdata .= "0;{$rows[$i]->address};{$rows[$i]->buildingID}\n";

ff_setSelectList('select1', $listdata);

function ff_setSelectList($name, $value) {
global $ff_processor;
for ($r = 0; $r < $ff_processor->rowcount; $r++) {
$row =& $ff_processor->rows[$r];
if ($row->name==$name)
$row->data2 = $value;
} // for

} // ff_setSelectList

Yes, that's correct. I'm still dialoging with them about this code. It's mentioned several times in the forum, yet it doesn't work for me, and I've followed their instructions exactly, performed the steps more than once, and on more than one Joomla install. I'm grasping at straws at this point...sorry to be a bother. :-/

I did look at the error logs (a recommendation from elsewhere) just now and found these. What's your take on them?

Looks like it is unable to evaluate the code on line 7.
