I need to create a drop down menu without using XoopsThemeForm, XoopsFormSelect, addElement, etc.

I need to create it with PHP (without Xoops's functions).

I need to have this for eg:

....
php code for unserialize variable $coutries ?
....

echo
'
<select name="countries">
<option value="">Select countries...</option>
'
;

foreach (... or for ...) {

echo
'<option value="$data[0]">$data[1]</option>'

}

echo
'</select>';


where $data[0] and $data[1] are 2 variabile from my variable $coutries serialized.

It's possible? Can you help me?

thanks a lot for your time

Stefano

Hi slyss,

you do it like this:

1. assign your Array to the template:

$xoopsTpl->assign('countries', $countries);

e.g. defined like:
$countries[1]['id']=1
$countries[1]['name']="usa"

2. in the template:

<select name="country">
<{foreach 
item=ci from=$countries}>
<
option value="<{$ci.id}>"><{$ci.name}></option>
<{/foreach}>
</
select>


Best Regards,
Marco

Hmm, no smarty - no problem

Try it like this:
echo"<select name="countries">";
foreach (
array_keys($countries) as $j){
 echo
"<option value="$countries[id]">$countries[name]</option>n";
}    
echo
"</select>";

There are some escape signs (\) lost in my last reply.

in my original this looks like:

<option value=\"$countries[id]\">$countries[name]</option>\n

This is a working example:

echo"<select name="countries">";
$countries = array();
$q 1;
$query $xoopsDB->query("SELECT * FROM ".$xoopsDB->prefix("your_country_table").";
while(
$myrow = $xoopsDB->fetchArray($query) ) {
 
$countries[$q]['id'] = $myrow['CountryID'];
 
$countries[$q]['name'] = $myrow['CountryName'];
$q++;
}
    
foreach (array_keys(
$seasons) as $j) {
 
$country['id'] = $countries[$j]['id'];
 
$country['name'] = $countries[$j]['name'];
 echo"
<option value="$country[id]">$country[name]</option>n";
}    
echo"
</select>";


Of course you have to change the table name and the field names according to your XOOPS DB Table. In the first part the array is filled with the query data, in the second part the array data is filled into the select box.
There are many ways to fill the array depending on your application, so this is just one possible example.

thanks a lot but i think you haven't understand my problem:

in my first post you can see my serialized variable $coutries.

This is the problem: i can't do a query on database, but i need to load data from my variabile $coutries...

I'm sorry but i cannot help you on that point. This requires a PHP expert, since the functions to split strings into arrays are not so easy to understand.

Maybe it is of some help for you to have a look here.

Good Luck
