<form method="post" action="page.php">
   <select name="people" id="people">
    <?php if($_POST['submitted'] == true){ ?>
        <option value="<?php echo $_POST['people']; ?>" selected="selected"><?php echo $_POST['people']; ?></option>

   <input type="submit" id="submit" name="submit" value="Submit" />
   <input type="hidden" name="submitted" id="submitted" value="true" />

What is the exact error message you get?

look the image below... when i used with table

Notice: Undefined index: submitted in C:\wamp\www\Untitled-1.php on line 7

The table has nothing to do with it.

this is the one causing the error

 <?php if($_POST['submitted'] == true){ ?>

you can do something like this

<?php if(isset($_POST['submit']) && ($_POST['submitted'] == true)){ ?>

really thz for ur help @veedeoo :)

i have one more question for ask u...

if i use <?php if(isset($_POST['submit'])){ ?>

why need add ($_POST['submitted'] == true) can u explain this?

Sorry about this

 ($_POST['submitted'] == true)

It was my mistakes. It should be like this

 ($_POST['submitted'] == "true")

It should have double quotes, because it is a string and that's what I wanted to confirm . So the correct codes should be like this

    <?php if(isset($_POST['submit']) && ($_POST['submitted'] == "true")){ ?>

Now, that I have corrected my wrong response, I have to answer your question.

why need add ($_POST['submitted'] == true) can u explain this?

Normally, when we assign hidden attribute to a form input, it is for the purpose of second stage validation e.g. we want make make sure that it is not a robot filling and submitting our form. So, this

 <input type="hidden" name="submitted" id="submitted" value="true" />

can be confirmed by my proposed codes above. Another purpose is to prevent repeated form submission of the same user.
