Hi,

I want to populate my txtArea with list of states pulled from my database.

If I am using a dropdown box I would use option but for the txtarea how can I identify the value and the name of the textarea.

my code is wrong textarea shouldn't have option??

<textarea id="TxtAreaState" name="TxtAreaState" cols="20" rows="8">
<cfoutput query="DispState">
<option value="#DispState.StateID#">#DispState.StateName#</option>
</cfoutput>
 </textarea>
<CFQUERY DATASOURCE="xx" NAME="DispState" cachedwithin="#createTimeSpan(0,0,0,-1)#">
		SELECT distinct StateTbl.StateID, StateTbl.StateName
		FROM StateTbl
		LEFT JOIN CityTbl ON CityTbl.StateID = StateTbl.StateID
		LEFT JOIN ChurchTbl ON ChurchTbl.ChCityID = CityTbl.CityID
		WHERE ChurchTbl.ChurchName <> "null" and ChurchTbl.ChurchStatus = 1
		and CityTbl.CityStatus = 1 and StateTbl.StateStatus = 1
	</CFQUERY>

<textarea id="TxtAreaState" name="TxtAreaState" cols="20" rows="8">
<cfoutput query="DispState">
#DispState.StateName# [#DispState.StateID#]<br>
</cfoutput>
 </textarea>

then do this
<textarea id="TxtAreaState" name="TxtAreaState" cols="20" rows="8">
<cfoutput query="DispState">
#DispState.StateName#<br>
</cfoutput>
 </textarea>

But in order to do this I would recommend using this plugin
