What is formSelectCountry for?

I noticed a XOOPS drop down menu that lists all the countries. I added the country field to my registation form and I was using it for that. The only problem is that in the database stores the two letter code for the selected country. I want to modify xoopslists.php so that it will store the country name instead of the code, but I don't know if that list is used by some other module or file.

I tried making another form element, but it didn't work.

Any ideas?

it's there for if it's ever needed..

but there's no need really to edit it to store country name instead of 2 letter name..

you could do that on the output from a script..


if country = uk then print "United Kingdom"

not a good example, but shud tell u what i mean

they could be defined in a language file too to make things easier..

I decided to just hardcode the select options into the edituser.php file.

$country_select = new XoopsFormSelect(_US_COUNTRY'country'$xoopsUser->getVar('country'));
$country_select->addOption("Algeria"); ...
