Happy Coding


We will create form with type select multiple input:

    <form method="post" action="process.php" >

        Firstname: <input type="text" name="firstname" />
        <br />

        Lastname: <input type="text" name="lastname" />
        <br />

        Description: <textarea name="description" rows="10" cols="50"></textarea>
        <br />

Add input type select with:

  1. It name in array postfix []
  2. Set attribute multiple
  3. Set attribute size; default size='4' (options)
        Programming Language (multi): (hold ctrl + click item)
        <select name="languages[]" multiple size="5" >
            <option value="c" >C</option>
            <option value="c++" >C++</option>
            <option value="java" >Java</option>
            <option value="javascript" >Javascript</option>
            <option value="php" selected >PHP</option>

        <br />

        <hr />

        <input type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit" />


And, the process:

    echo "<pre>";
