  Subject: Drop Down Error
  Posted: 05/18/2004 at 10:43:56 pm

I am experiencing problems with drop downs and the error page.
<%SEL%FORMNAME {_value}%>
I have no problems when using a "," as my DB delimiter, however, when using a "|" delimiter, the drop down selected value doesnt get carried over to the error page.

thanks in advanced!

I will have to test that theory on my server and see what you are running into. A side note. On your form. If you submit the form once and get an error you can submit it a second time and if there is an error it won't catch it. What you are going to want to do is on the error page make sure that you have all the hidden fields, and personalize them with the data on the original form, this way you have an exact carbon copy of the original form.

<input type="hidden" name="required" value="<%required%>">
<input type="hidden" name="sendreply" value="<%sendreply%>">
<input type="hidden" name="reply_subject" value="<%reply_subject%>">
<input type="hidden" name="subject" value="<%subject%>">


these would then go on the formerror.html page.

Ok..cool. I'll check back if you find anything.
This is what is sent back to the browser(error page) when I use a "|" delimiter:
<option value=""<%SEL%state {_ }>select...</option>
<option value="Alaska"<%SEL%state {_Alaska selected>AK</option>
<option value="Alabama"<%SEL%state {_Alabama selected>AL</option>
<option value="Arkansas"<%SEL%state {_Arkansas selected>AR</option>
<option value="Arizona"<%SEL%state {_Arizona selected>AZ</option>
<option value="California"<%SEL%state {_California selected>CA</option>
<option value="Colorado"<%SEL%state {_Colorado selected>CO</option>
<option value="Connecticut"<%SEL%state {_Connecticut selected>CT</option>
<option value="District of Columbia"<%SEL%state {_District of Columbia selected>DC</option>
<option value="Deleware"<%SEL%state {_Deleware selected>DE</option>
