so you want to group the names under each town? For example:

            <li>Name X</li>
            <li>Name Y</li>
            <li>Name Z</li>

is this correct?

yes from my database, and while clicking particular town I want to show the same town extract list (town wise filter)

Ok, then you could use PDO to group the results into an array, the index key is defined by the first column listed in the SELECT statement, in your case it will be the town column.

Here's an example:

$conn = new PDO('mysql:host=localhost;dbname=my_db', 'username', 'password');
$stmt = $conn->prepare('SELECT `town`, `il`.* FROM `info_list` AS `il` ORDER BY `town`, `name` ASC');
$rows = $stmt->fetchAll(PDO::FETCH_GROUP | PDO::FETCH_OBJ);

Then create a template for the list:

$list     = '';
$template = '<li>%s<ul>%s</ul></li>';

And loop the results:

foreach($rows as $town => $value)
    $li = '';
    foreach($value as $row)
        $li .= "<li>$row->name, $row->job</li>";

    $list .= sprintf($template, $town, $li);

Then into your HTML simply do:

<?php echo $list; ?>

More info here:

Sorry for inconvenience, I got better and simple way

// Check connection
if (mysqli_connect_errno())
echo "Failed to connect to MySQL: " . mysqli_connect_error();

$result = mysqli_query($con,"SELECT * FROM n_info ");

while($row = mysqli_fetch_array($result))
echo "<ul class='ui-listview ui-listview-inset ui-corner-all ui-shadow';  >";
echo "<li data-theme='c'; class='ui-btn ui-btn-icon-right ui-li-has-arrow ui-li ui-li-has-count ui-btn-up-c';><div class='ui-btn-inner ui-li';><div class='ui-btn-text';><a href='choose_worker.php'; data-transition='slidedown'; class='ui-link-inherit';> " . $row['location'] . "<span class='ui-li-count ui-btn-up-c ui-btn-corner-all';>2 </span></a> </div><span class='ui-icon ui-icon-arrow-r ui-icon-shadow'></span></div></li>";
echo "</ul>";



Good for you, bye! :)
