Hi,

use @selectvalue = $_POST['option'] instead, this will give you the array of all the values of your form variable "option".

In the form definition you need brackets after the name to define an array

<select name="option[]" multiple>

In the php script you then extract the values as follows:

<?php
$option = $_POST['option'];
foreach($option as $selected)
{
        print $selected." / ";
}       
?>
