      I am not sure I am posting in the correct place or not, if I am not I am sorry just point me in the right directions please.

       

      Here is my problem, I am a Graphic Design student not yet graduated and new to Dreamweaver. What I need to do is making an order page, I have the form and the data base, I have three drop down menus, what I would like is the price to aumatically populate based on the selections from the drop down menu. How do I do this, would this be a PHP app or a Javascript? Any help is greatly appreciated. I am new to the whole scripting thing, I did however manage to do a php for a contact page and it worked

          The current forum has been established for users of the (discontinued) extension "Dreamweaver Developer Toolbox", so there are indeed better places to get help ;-)

           

          Depending on the "nature" (e.g. PHP or JavaScript) of your question either the "Dreamweaver General Discussions" (http://forums.adobe.com/community/dreamweaver/dreamweaver_general) or the "Dreamweaver Application Development" (http://forums.adobe.com/community/dreamweaver/dreamweaver_development) forums would be the appropriate ones.

           

          How do I do this, would this be a PHP app or a Javascript?

           

           

          It´s actually a combination of both, because such "dependant dropdown menus" are - technically - based on JavaScript, whereas the data which defines each menu´s option/value - pairs can also be derived from Dreamweaver´s PHP_MySQL Recordsets. Extensions such as the one from Technorama will certainly be of great help when you´re not familiar with getting such things done by coding JavaScript and PHP.

           

          However you need to be aware of a significant downside: dependant dropdown menus will not work for visitors which have JavaScript disabled in their browsers..

           

          Cheers,

          Günter
