I am kind new to PHP and learning quick.  But I ran into a speed bump.

I have a combobox that fills with the contents from a MySQL DB.  I want to be able to select an option in the combobox click the go button and go to a url based on the selection of the combobox.

Here is what i currently have:


....code
print("<form name=form1 method=post style=display: inline; margin: 0; padding: 0;>");
print("<select name=select>");
while ($row = mysql_fetch_array ($result))
      {  
      print("<option value=cat4.php?GEN=$gender&BR=".urlencode(stripslashes($row[BRAND])).">".stripslashes($row[BRAND])."</option>");
      }
  print("<input type=submit value=go></select></form>");

// Close the access to mysql database
mysql_close ($link);
print ("</p></font></td></tr>\n");
print ("</table>\n");
?>


The answer is probably easy but I'm giving 125pts because I want to get this little thing done.

Thanks

You need some JavaScript magic:

print("<form name=form1 method=post style=display: inline; margin: 0; padding: 0;>");
print("<select name=select>");
while ($row = mysql_fetch_array ($result))
     {  
     print("<option value=cat4.php?GEN=$gender&BR=".urlencode(stripslashes($row[BRAND])).">".stripslashes($row[BRAND])."</option>");
     }
  print('<input type="submit" value="go" onsubmit="location.href=form1.select.options[selectedIndex].value"></select></form>');

I would recommend enclosing all your attributes in quotes ("" "") like I've done.
