PHP <select> and onchange question

Hi,

Hopefully a fairly easy question. I have web page that has a form that autofills from a database about a certain company. Some companies have more than one contact. I am hoping that I can use either javascript:onchange or a submit button to display information about that particular contact based on one of the fields in the form (contact name)

I'm using arrays such as "$contact['phone1'][$contactid]" where $contactid  would be 0,1,2,etc depending on the option selected from the dropdown list to display the information about the relevant contact.

Can anyone give me some ideas about how to go about this?

I've managed to get it working with a submit button, however is there a way to get it to work using onchange?

In the onchange function handler, you could do "document.your_form.submit()", and that would be the equivalent of using the submit button.
