This is an example working with optgroup.


<form action="#" ><SELECT name="rubsel" class="btn"><?php$tmp=0;while($row = $result->fetch_assoc() ) {$reeks = implode(" " , $row); ?>        <optgroup ="btn" label = "<?php echo $reeks; ?>" ><?php     echo $reeks ;$tmp ; ?><option class="btn" name="rub_sub1" value="<?php echo $reeks; ?>">1 t/m 10        </option><option class="btn" name="rub_sub2" value="<?php echo $reeks; ?>">11 t/m 20       </option><option class="btn" name="rub_sub3" value="<?php echo $reeks; ?>">21 t/m 30       </option><option class="btn" name="rub_sub4" value="<?php echo $reeks; ?>">31 t/m 40       </option></optgroup><?php $tmp++;}?></SELECT><br><br><input type="submit" class ="btn" name ="tab_wrd" value="Kies Rubriek" /> <br><br></form>

What i would like to know is how the input is being processed when using php.

 

Especially how to find exactly the value of <option>

 

The Select name input is found and echoed but what if I put a name attribute in the option element? I cant get an output of that.

 

Or is there another way to get the option value with other attributes for instance?

I should have posted my own code making it clearer.

<form action="#" ><SELECT name="rubsel" class="btn"><?php$tmp=0;while($row = $result->fetch_assoc() ) {$reeks = implode(" " , $row); ?>        <optgroup ="btn" label = "<?php echo $reeks; ?>" ><?php     echo $reeks ;$tmp ; ?><option class="btn" name="rub_sub1" value="<?php echo $reeks; ?>">1 t/m 10        </option><option class="btn" name="rub_sub2" value="<?php echo $reeks; ?>">11 t/m 20       </option><option class="btn" name="rub_sub3" value="<?php echo $reeks; ?>">21 t/m 30       </option><option class="btn" name="rub_sub4" value="<?php echo $reeks; ?>">31 t/m 40       </option></optgroup><?php $tmp++;}?></SELECT><br><br><input type="submit" class ="btn" name ="tab_wrd" value="Kies Rubriek" /> <br><br></form>

name "rub_sub1" is not read and cant be output.

This looks familiar, have we been through this already?

 

The select is given the name attribute ONLY, any selected option value is passed with the select name attribute value as 'get '(default) or 'post' when the form is submitted, if multiple select options are enabled and selected you have to loop through each one like an array.
