Help with some code, please

I have a select tag on an update page created using DataBridge and I want it to load showing the properly selected value from the database. It's not doing that.

The code is this:

<option value="">Select Project Category</option>
do {
<option value="<?php echo $row_WADAproject['project']?>"<?php if (!(strcmp($row_WADAproject['project'], (isset($_GET["invalid"])?ValidatedField("projectsupdate","project"):"".$row_WADAprojects["project"]."")))) {"selected=\"selected\"";} ?>><?php echo $row_WADAproject['project']?></option>
} while ($row_WADAproject = mysql_fetch_assoc($WADAproject));

Basically, I need you to explain this code and how it works.

How should I change that code so that the selected="selected" is properly shown when the original value/validated value equals the current value of $row_WADAproject['project']?
