MySQL & PHP SelectBox | 3-part question
Posted on 2004-09-06
I have what I think is a three-part question regarding the creation of a PHP-based computer system configurator:
-These select boxes have to populate based on the processing platform (AMD or Intel) and the profile-type (gaming, professional, server, etc.). The page must also have an auto-updating price total that reflects the sum of all the user-selected choices.
Here is the question(s):
1). What would be a good code example of how to best create the pages based on machine type? Should I use URL query strings on preceding pages to designate how the configurator pages are built?
2). Does anyone have a script that can show me how to pull data into a PHP selectbox? I have a basic understanding, but want to do it right the first time.
If you need more specific info in order to present a defined answer, please ask.
-A metric ton of thanks for your suggestions.
