    Need a JavaScript/PHP/MySQL dependant drop-down menu.

    Hi all,

    I'm looking at integrating a JavaScript/PHP/MySQL dependant drop-down menu order configurator.

    My client sells a lot of high-tech stuff, which needs to be customized, so I was thinking that this would be the perfect solution.



    Rather than have the list statically populated with HTML tables, if the clients could automatically configure them to their specifications, then this would be the best option to avoid confusion, as well as save my client's support desk time and money during the pre-sales process.

    However, I am not having luck finding what I need when Googling for dynamic dependant javascript php menus... a lot of basic JavaScript menus comes up, and that's great, and I really don't have the time to spend on this project creating a custom mysql/php implementation.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Thank you,

    Robert.

    Basically what you want is PHP to generate the HTML/JavaScript code from data stored in a MySQL database. The easiest way to start is to find a HTML/JavaScript dropdown menu you like and will suit your needs, study the code and then get PHP to output that code using a loop.
