HI
i am having some probme to solved an issue

there would be select with some values,
when user will select a value, it will check against a database to see if the selected value is greated then the filed value.
if yes, then it will say, out of stock

now, i know you can do this via pure php, but i want a short cut way without modify too much my existing code.( due to time issue)

i am tinking is there any way, i can do this via java script ??
so javascript will get the value from select , then it will compare with the database ??
if its see the value is bigger then database filed, it will say , outof stock , thats all

here is the link if you want to see what i meant

<script type="text/javascript">
 
function output(selectobj)
{
alert(selectobj.selectedIndex);
 
}
              
              </script>
			
			<?php
				echo "<td><select name='amountBox' select id='sample' onChange='output(this)' >";
			
				for($i=0;$i<=10;$i++)
				{
					echo "<option>" . $i . "</option>";
				}
			
				echo "</select></td>";
			
				
				echo "<td><INPUT TYPE='image' name='submit' src='images.jpg' onclick='this.form.submit()'  border='0' ><input type='hidden' name='submit' value='Add to basket'> </td>";
				echo "</tr>";
							
			echo "</table>";
			echo "</form>";
		}

There's the first way to do that:
<script type="text/javascript">
 
function output(selectobj,max)
{
if(selectobj.selectedIndex.value>max)
{
alert('not available!');
return false;
}
return true; 
}
              
              </script>
                        
                        <?php
//$max_value must be the same variable you print in qty available
                                echo "<td><select name='amountBox' select id='sample' onChange='return output(this,$max_value)' >";
                        
                                for($i=0;$i<=10;$i++)
                                {
                                        echo "<option>" . $i . "</option>";
                                }
                        
                                echo "</select></td>";
                        
                                
                                echo "<td><INPUT TYPE='image' name='submit' src='images.jpg' onclick='this.form.submit()'  border='0' ><input type='hidden' name='submit' value='Add to basket'> </td>";
                                echo "</tr>";
                                                        
                        echo "</table>";
                        echo "</form>";
                }

the second way to do that (i think this is better)

<script type="text/javascript">
 
function output(selectobj)
{
alert(selectobj.selectedIndex);
 
}
              
              </script>
                        
                        <?php
                                echo "<td><select name='amountBox' select id='sample' onChange='output(this)' >";
                        //$max is the value printed in qty available td
                                for($i=0;$i<=$max;$i++)
                                {
                                        echo "<option>" . $i . "</option>";
                                }
                        
                                echo "</select></td>";
                        
                                
                                echo "<td><INPUT TYPE='image' name='submit' src='images.jpg' onclick='this.form.submit()'  border='0' ><input type='hidden' name='submit' value='Add to basket'> </td>";
                                echo "</tr>";
                                                        
                        echo "</table>";
                        echo "</form>";
                }

And the 3rd way, but i dont recomand (why to compare with the database when you already know the values?): Using ajax.

http://www.w3schools.com/Ajax/Default.Asp - here is all you need to know about ajax.

Hi
thanks, just little bit of problem

how will i define this $max_value value ??

because according to your idea, $max_value would be $prodrow[qty]

so how i will  pass this $prodrow[qty]  to $max_value

hahahaha
thanks i know , it would be this


                        for($i=0;$i<=$prodrow[qty];$i++)
                        {
                              echo "<option>" . $i . "</option>";
                        }

so user would not be able to order any thing more then
$prodrow[qty]
