MySQLi version of a Dynamic Dropdown on an UPDATE form?

So when I try to select "Dynamic" for my dropdown menu, in my update form, the MySQLi recordset doesn't show as available. So, I created 2 recordsets - one MySQL, one MySQLi - and I the non-MySQLi recordset is available which, for my select field, gives me this:

<select class="form-control" id="BWnewsbutton" name="BWnewsbutton" tabindex="6">
<option value="1" <?php if (!(strcmp(1, $row_rsEDITNEWSalt['BWnewsbutton']))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>>Contact Page</option>
<option value="2" <?php if (!(strcmp(2, $row_rsEDITNEWSalt['BWnewsbutton']))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>>Windows Page</option>
<option value="3" <?php if (!(strcmp(3, $row_rsEDITNEWSalt['BWnewsbutton']))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>>Doors Page</option>
<option value="4" <?php if (!(strcmp(4, $row_rsEDITNEWSalt['BWnewsbutton']))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>>Conservatories Page</option>
<option value="5" <?php if (!(strcmp(5, $row_rsEDITNEWSalt['BWnewsbutton']))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>>Get a Quote - Windows</option>
<option value="6" <?php if (!(strcmp(6, $row_rsEDITNEWSalt['BWnewsbutton']))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>>Get a Quote - Doors</option>
<option value="7" <?php if (!(strcmp(7, $row_rsEDITNEWSalt['BWnewsbutton']))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>>Get a Quote - Conservatories</option>
<option value="8" <?php if (!(strcmp(8, $row_rsEDITNEWSalt['BWnewsbutton']))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>>Home Page</option>
</select>



Rather than have two recordsets on the page, where only one is required, what is the MySQLi version of the above?
Thank you.

Just replace:
$row_rsEDITNEWSalt['BWnewsbutton']

with:
$MySQLiRecordsetName->getColumnVal('BWnewsbutton')

everywhere it appears in that code chunk.

Thank you Ray.

is there a way to drop this into a repeat region? I've tried the following but, whilst it does give me a dynamic list it auto loads on the last value:

<?php
while(!$rsDISTILLERY->atEnd()) {
?>
<option value="<?php echo($rsDISTILLERY->getColumnVal("wbprodDISTID")); ?>" <?php if (!(strcmp($rsDISTILLERY->getColumnVal("wbprodDISTID"), $rsDISTILLERY->getColumnVal("wbprodDISTID")))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>><?php echo($rsDISTILLERY->getColumnVal("wbprodDISTILLERY")); ?></option>
<?php
$rsDISTILLERY->moveNext();
}
$rsDISTILLERY->moveFirst(); //return RS to first record
?>

In the code that sets the selection you are comparing the value to itself:

<?php if (!(strcmp($rsDISTILLERY->getColumnVal("wbprodDISTID"), $rsDISTILLERY->getColumnVal("wbprodDISTID")))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>

one of those two recordsets should be the updated recordset used to populate the form and not the repeated one.
