onChange to a php function

Postby shortty » Sat Sep 25, 2004 12:35 pm

:sad:

Is it possible to do something like this:

<?php

echo "<form action=\"show.php\" method=\"post\">\n";
echo "<select name=\"pair1\" onChange=\"*DO PHP FUNCTION*\">\n";
echo "<option value=\"\" SELECTED>blah</option>\n";

?>

:(

If so, please tell me how. How would I point the onChange to the php code?

Thanks.

As Java is Client side, and PHP server side, this idea is not possible UNLESS you get the page to perhaps refresh and run the function you require...

on the onchange event you call a javascript finction
which submits the form

eg...

Code: Select all

function onchagenfn() {
  document.forms['formname'].submit();
}


Return to “JavaScript”
