multiple list

Hey Ray

ON the attached pages form, on line 565 I have a multiple list which allows you to select more than one entry from the list fine, but it doesnt submit more than the first one selected...

Many thanks

Jamie

In php you have to name multiselect list elements with brackets at the end like: name="Accommodation[]"

That will make it so the selected values are submitted as an array. Then if you want to store them comma-separated you can use the implode function like:

<?php echo(isset($_POST['Accommodation'])?implode(",",$_POST['Accommodation']):""); ?>

so would that be to modify the <option> something like this

<?php if (!(strcmp("Albert Suite", ((isset($_POST["Accommodation"]))?$_POST["Accommodation"]:"")))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>


to this

<?php if (!(strcmp("Albert Suite", (isset($_POST["Accommodation"]))?implode(",",$_POST['Accommodation'])))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>



If so, I have doen something wrong as it 'breaks' the page

First you would have to make sure the field was named with brackets or that would cause an error: name="Accomodation[]"

Then you would have to rewrite that code entirely like:

php:
<?php if (isset($_POST["Accommodation"]) && in_array("Albert Suite",$_POST["Accommodation"])) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>
