Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: DYNAMIC Dropdown. Stick on non dynamic choice?

    DYNAMIC Dropdown. Stick on non dynamic choice?

    Environment: DreamweaverMX 2004, ASP, VBScript, mySQL

    I have a dropdown which is populated dynamically from a mySQL database plus an option "All" that returns all records (value "%").

    The problem is that

    1) there doesn't seem to be any way in which the dropdown box will display the word "All" by default, perhaps because this is not a value in the database.

    2) The word "All" is not displayed in the dropdown box after the the user has chosen it, it reverts to a dynamically drawn word instead.

    I can, however, do this if the dropdown is not dynamic, by adding extra code, but this just doesn't work if the selection list is dynamic.

    The search and results are carried out on the same page.

    Any clues anyone ?

    DYNAMIC dropdown

    Problem solved - I needed to put Request("formobjectname") in the dynamic value field and add All value "%" to non dynamic box area.

    Thank you for your offer of help.
