Javascript and the combobox printing issue


M

Hi,

We have a combo box on our page, which gets populated via a MySQL
Query in PHP.

What we want to do is to print the values on the page in a table that
correspond the to selection from the combo box without a page refresh.

I assume that I'll need to query ALL the needed values from the
database and store them in an array This can be done in PHP. Drawing
the combo box is not a problem. But, once a selection is made, how do
I print the values to the page?

I'm assuming an 'on change' events needs to be attached to the box,
but, it is not a form, so, there would not be any submit to the
server. How do we print the values from the selection made? Would it
have to be javascript rather than PHP, or a function that is called?

John.

Follow up:

Well, someone just suggested something called inner html......I'll
have to look that up.
