View Full Version : Dependant Drop Down Menu as Search Function

I've build a dependant drop down menu. Essentially, a database filter for the user. By the way, the tutorial on this site for building dynamic drop downs is a great resource. I highly recommend it. Anyway, I need the drop downs (i.e. the form) to function like a search feature and link to a results page, rather than submit to a database. I'm not sure if this is best done with javascript (i.e. onClick) or php or a mixture.

What should I use and how would I do this?

The issue I've had is in getting the information (specifically, the primary id field) to populate in the link. Instead, no matter what I try the same result page appears.

Thanks for your help.
