Try it with single quote

value='<?php echo $tname; ?>'
instead of
value="<?php echo $tname; ?>"

jfromanskiCommented:
$html value should be created in double-quotes:
$html=".....";
Otherwise variables inside $html will be not expanded

Haven't notice before but jfromanski is right the variables to be parse have to be enclosed between double quote, and since you are already in php mode you do not need <?php again to display the value of the variable but you will need to escape the double quote with a backslash \ so line 31 to 41 would look like this

$html =
"
<form id=\"common\" name=\"form\">
        <table border=\"1\" bgcolor=\"#CCCCCC\">
        <tr><td colspan=\"3\" bgcolor=\"#CCCCCC\"><h2>Add Table or fields to the Database</h2></td></tr>
        <tr><td>Menu Name</td><td colspan=\"2\"><input type=\"text\" onKeyUp=\"this.form.tname.value = this.value;\" name=\"mname\" id=\"mname\" value=\"$mname\" /></td></tr>
        <tr><td colspan=\"3\"><b>Write new table name here or Select from the dropdown</b></tr>
        <tr><td>Table Name</td><td><input type=\"text\" onKeyUp=\"this.form.mname.value = this.value; \" name=\"tname\" id=\"tname\"  value=\"$tname\"/></td></tr>
        <tr><td>Field name</td><td colspan=\"2\"><input type=\"text\" name=\"fname\" id=\"fname\"  value=\"$fname\"/></td></tr>
        <tr><td>Data Type</td>
        <td colspan=\"2\">

And of course you need to do the same for the rest of the variable $html and don't forget to change the last quote ' to a double quote as well " (no escape for the last one)

same thing, you need to give a value for each options

<select name=ftype id=ftype>
                        <option value=$type selected=selected >Select</option>
                        <option value=\"textbox\">textbox</option>
                        <option value=\"wysiwyg\">wysiwyg</option>
                        <option value\"date\">date</option>
                        <option value=\"upload\">upload</option>

This will not work - remember to escape all double-quotes inside $html as gamebits shows, ther is no need to escape single-quote. It will work in dropdowns as well, but after corrections.
