Forms with variable outputs?
My first post here having only recently joined. Salut!
I purchased the 'Site Point - Build Your Own Database Driven Website Using PHP & MySQL' book, but was hoping someone would be able to clarify one minor point (major for me!).
I want to create a simple form where the end user selects one option from a drop down list, this selection will then dictate what the following selection would be.
For example - You select 'manufacturer of machine' this will then produce another drop down list with models from that particular company/make.
Can this be done solely in php or do I need to add another application (and ultimately Site Point book!) into the mix?
Thank you in advance for any advice offered.

Hi there Jim and welcome to Sitepoint
PHP is a server side language meaning that anything it does has to be sent to the server for processing and then sent back to the browser - and a page refresh.
Have a look at: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamici...ects/index.htm or
for 2 good examples.
