This will require some work in code view to accomplish since the Dreamweaver Select lists don't recognize the MySQLi recordsets.

first create the recordset, then create the select list with a static value, for example:

<select name="select" id="select">
<option value="value">label</option>
</select>



In code View highlight the Label between the option tags. Open the bindings panel, and expand the recordset add the binding for the column yo wish to use for the label, for exaple:

<option value="value"><?php echo($recordsetName->getColumnVal("ItemCatName")); ?></option>



repeat this for the value:

<option value="<?php echo($recordsetName->getColumnVal("ItemCatID")); ?>
"><?php echo($recordsetName->getColumnVal("ItemCatName")); ?></option>



then select the option tag and add a repeat around it:

the end result will look like this:

<select name="select" id="select">
<?php
while(!$recordsetName->atEnd()) {
?>
<option value="<?php echo($recordsetName->getColumnVal("ItemCatID")); ?>
"><?php echo($recordsetName->getColumnVal("ItemCatName")); ?></option>
<?php
$recordsetName->moveNext();
}
?>
</select>
