little problem coming in this code.

there is a little problem coming in this code.
1) when i comment the form tags line 25 and 79 then 28 and 30

line code will not work and line 79 generate php code will

work.
2) when i uncommented the form tags then 28 and 30 line code

will work and line 79 code will not work. the url becomes very

awkward. in 2nd case, on clicking the button of generate php

code, the page gets post and nothing happens and the url

becomes like  http://localhost/new/12_table_create/dropdown_values/new.php?mname=&tname=&fname=&dtype=varchar&ftype=textbox&foptions=NULL&flength=&b=Generate+php+code

this query string gets added , why??

this is the js function
function rt(){
var tname = document.getElementById("tname").value;
var fname = document.getElementById("fname").value;
var dtype = document.getElementById("dtype").value;
var ftype = document.getElementById("ftype").value;
var foptions = document.getElementById("foptions").value;
var flength = document.getElementById("flength").value;
var obj = document.getElementById("show3");

h.open('get','php_code_generator.php?tname='+tname+'&fname='+fname+'&dtype='+dtype+'&ftype='+ftype+'&foptions='+foptions+'&flength='+flength);
h.onreadystatechange=function(){
      if(h.readyState == 4){
            obj.innerHTML=h.responseText;
      }
}
h.send(null);            
}

You should move this question to the javascript zone. Some of the lines you comment out involve javascript, not PHP.
