Using "Multiple" with the <option> command
by Max Steiner, November 4, 2006 11:13
I would like to add an option list, but allow them to select multiple entries. I don't want to use the <checkbox> option because there are many selections and want a scrollbar to reduce the amount of space that is used on the screen. Using the following as an example:
<FORM METHOD="post" ACTION="/cgi-bin/odbic.exe/ibin/testret.tpl"> <SELECT NAME=sections MULTIPLE> <OPTION>Web Authoring Reference</OPTION> <OPTION>FAQ Archives</OPTION> <OPTION>Design Elements</OPTION> <OPTION>Tools</OPTION> <OPTION>Feature Article</OPTION> </SELECT>
Assuming I selected "Web Authoring Reference" and "Design Elements" Then in my testret.tpl screen I do a <!--SHOWINPUT <br>--> and it returns the following:
sections: Web Authoring Reference sections: Design Elements
This is great! But how do I use these values when they are the same variable names?
Anyone else run into this???
