Since PHP is a server-side language, and doesn't directly monitor changes on the client-side, there is no PHP equivalent to that statement in PHP. The only way you may incorporate PHP into that statement is to leave it as it is and have the onchange function call an AJAX routine that triggers a php script

There is no "onchange equivalent" code in PHP instead of HTML ... you can rewrite it in php like this,


echo '<select name="searchlist"  onchange="opt2txt(this)">';

Open in new window

Hi there,

Yes there is not equivalent code in php for onchange but you can use "AJAX" to call php functions for executing php codes
Google for "ajax"

Thanks
