Hi all,

I'm so glad you guys helped me out a couple of days ago, so i thought i'd had another go.
Here's the situation: in a form i want a visitor to choose form a list a value of 1 to 10. This chosen value should be multiplied by a value of 2750 which should be stored in a variable and shown on the page (recalculated by any change in the list)
this value does nog necesarily be in the form itself. The most important question is how to put the chosen value in a variable.

Any help is greatly appreciated

cheers

Do your own homework.

Check out http://au1.php.net/manual/en/faq.html.php. Of course you'll want
to check whether any values from the list have been passed in when the page
loads, before you do any calculations.

How do you know it's a homework assignment? Or is that just a fecetious
attempt to start flames?

When you have nothing to say, that's exactly what you should say; NOTHING!

Hmm, another copy-cat. Perhaps some Interpersonal Skills would help you.

Looks like you're too lazy to bother reading the ng for responses in my
opinion. Putting a real name and address into a ng is a sure way to
assist those who wish to spam/scam and thieves one's identity. Or is
that what you're about? scraping personal ID data?

Lotsa luck, pointed.

Isn't it obvious?

It got *your* panties in a wad, anyway...

I *did* have something to say -- "do your own homework" -- and I
said it.

*You*, on the other hand, have not contributed anything useful to
this thread, or, indeed, to any other thread in any other
newsgroup which you have infested -- so I need to add *yet
another* of your constantly-shifting nyms to the killfile.

Buh-bye!

You did? How did that work out for you.

Yeah, in a form if you want the user to choose a number like that you can
use an html select / option, or a set of radio buttons, or you could use
a text input and let the user enter a number, but they might enter a
number outside your range.

This sounds more like a javascript thing than a php thing, you probably
don't want to submit your form to the server each time the user changes
their option.

Not quite sure what a nog is.

Well you'd use an appropriate javascript function to get the value from
the input type that you were using, making sure that you did any needed
conversions to numeric data if it started life as a string value, and
then do the relevant multiplication and display it in a suitable output
location.

> Any help is greatly appreciated

You're welcome.

xp and fu set, this sounds like primarily a js issue, not a php one
