populate a text field upon a dropdown change

Have a membership db and recordset with column FirstName, LastName and GHIN_number
On form dropdown, i have array, FirstName and LastName
When a member is signing up for a game, they go to this form and select their name for the dropdown array [FirstName LastName]
I want to populate a text field with their GHIN_number, based on their choice in the dropdown of their name.

Then when their choice is made and they click Submit, I want to insert the FirstName, LastName and GHIN_number into another db table called Saturday Game.

My current code for the dropdown

php:
<?php


if($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST")     {

    foreach(
$_POST as $key => $val) {

        if(
is_array($_POST[$key])) $_POST[$key] = implode(", "$_POST[$key]);

    }

}

?>

<?php $selected explode(", "ValidatedField("index_225","player1")); ?><form  action="" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" name="form1" id="form1">
    
      <label for="player1"><strong>Your Name:</strong></label>
      <select name="player1[]" id="player1">
        <option value="" selected="selected">Select From Dropdown</option>
        <?php
do {  
?>
        <option value="<?php echo $row_rs_members['FirstName']?> <?php echo $row_rs_members['LastName']?><?php if(in_array($row_rs_members['FirstName']." ".$row_rs_members['LastName'], $selected)) echo("selected=\"selected\""); ?>><?php echo $row_rs_members['FirstName']?> <?php echo $row_rs_members['LastName']?></option>
        <?php
} while ($row_rs_members mysql_fetch_assoc($rs_members));
  
$rows mysql_num_rows($rs_members);
  if(
$rows 0) {
      
mysql_data_seek($rs_members0);
      
$row_rs_members mysql_fetch_assoc($rs_members);

I don't have the text field, GHIN_number in the form since i am not sure how to populate it based on their choosing their name in the select field.

Also, how to get the array of FirstName and LastName to insert into two columns?

The easiest way is probably to add the GHIN number to another property of the list options like: rel="<?php echo $row_rs_members['GHIN_number']?>"

Then you could add an onchange event to the list to take the rel attribute from the selected option and populate another form element.

I'd probably add a delimiter to the option value to use to split the first and last name on when the form is submitted to allow you to easily differentiate the first and last name.

This process is going to require some hand coding in both javascript (to populate the number) and php (to separate the first and last names) so I'd suggest a premier support ticket if you aren't familiar with these scripting languages.

Thanks Ray,
I was actually able to figure it out by using the FirstName,LastName,GHIN_number in the player1 select options and hidden fields for each. And then JavaScript to populate the hidden fields with an on change calling the function when the person chooses from the select drop down.

My code

php:
<script type="text/javascript">

function setSatsignup(opts) {
    var optArray = new Array;
    optArray = opts.split(",");
    var theForm = document.form1;
    var prodNameField = theForm.FirstName;
    var prodName1Field = theForm.LastName;
    var prodGHINField = theForm.GHIN_number;
    prodName1Field.value = optArray[1];
    prodGHINField.value = optArray[2];
    prodNameField.value = optArray[0];
    

}
</script>

<div id="form1_ProgressWrapper">
<?php $selected explode(", "ValidatedField("index_225","player1")); ?><form  action="" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" name="form1" id="form1">
