Hi Experts,

I am trying to re-create chained select boxes using Ajax from http://www.blueicestudios.com/chained-select-boxes-using-php-mysql-ajax/, but I am getting the following error.  It is probably something very simple, but I can't seem to locate the problem.  Any suggestions?

This is a Notice, not an Error.  You may be able to suppress the message by adding the @ to the function call.  Start the exploration here:

I guess I then have a slightly different question, the process works until I select the first drop-down, then the image is view-able in func.php line 54, then nothing.  I am very inexperienced with Ajax, how do I go about trouble shooting it?  thanks!

Can you post your table structure? I think you have problem in your select query, it seems there is no problem.... If I have created right fields.

SELECT findingKey, description, findingVerbiage FROM finding WHERE findingCategoryKey='$drop_var' AND active=1

Again Ray already write above your problem it's the problem by
 error_reporting(E_ALL);

This article shows the basics of a jQuery AJAX call.
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Scripting/JavaScript/Jquery/A_10712-The-Hello-World-Exercise-with-jQuery-and-PHP.html

For background info, you will need to have a good understanding of HTTP protocols.

Read those over and see if that helps you get some ideas about troubleshooting, then post back with any questions.

Change the order of line 21. Currently you're checking a value and then checking if it's set! You should check if it's set and the check the value...

if(isset($_GET['func']) && $_GET['func'] == "drop_1" ) { 
...
}

Open in new window

This way, if it's not set, it won't check the value, and therefore won't give you the NOTICE!

Here is the table structure
finding table structure
I also commented out error_reporting(E_ALL); with no change except the notice doesn't show.

I am reviewing the links from Ray now.

To prevent the NOTICE and fix your problem, read my previous post - I've already given you the answer.

DO NOT remove the error reporting directive while degugging - hiding error mressages is not a valid way of fixing your code ;)
