Select dropdown list validation

Last Modified: 2013-12-03

I would like to add validation on a SELECT drop down list. Could anyone please help?

I have this code:
				$limit = 1000;
				$start = 0;
				$searchmode = " WHERE t.brand_id=$brand_id";
				$orderby = " ORDER BY d.City ASC";				
                $results = $records->getDealersPerBra<wbr ></wbr><wbr ></wbr>nds($searc<wbr ></wbr>hmode, $orderby);
                <select name="dealer_post">	
                	<option value="none">choose one</option>
                    	$max = count($results);
						for($i=0; $i<$max; $i++){
							if ($dzresults[0]['Dealer_id'<wbr ></wbr><wbr ></wbr>] == $results[$i]['Dealer_id'])<wbr ></wbr><wbr ></wbr>{
								$selected = 'selected="selected"';
								$selected = '';
                    	<option <?php echo $selected?> value="<?php echo $results[$i]['Dealer_id']?<wbr ></wbr><wbr ></wbr>>----<?php<wbr ></wbr> echo $results[$i]['EmailLeads']<wbr ></wbr><wbr ></wbr>?>">
						<?php echo $results[$i]['City']?> - <?php echo $results[$i]['Name'] ?></option>

How should I change the code to make this work?
