i am facing a challenge with my code. what i am trying to do is have two comboboxes one called province and the other one city, when the user selects a province it should only display the cities in that province in the city combobox. how can i achive this using PHP ?
function getCity($provinceId)
        $sql ="SELECT `cityid`,`cityname` FROM `tblcity` inner join `tblprovince` ON `tblcity`.`pid`='$provinceId'  order by `cityid` asc";
        $query = mysql_query($sql) or die ("Could not access DB: " . mysql_error());
			$row = mysql_fetch_assoc($query);		
			$id = $row['cityid'];
			$name = $row['cityname'];
				<option value ='$id'>".$name."</option>
			$row = mysql_fetch_assoc($query);

this is what my fuction looks like now i am unable to retrieve the values of the province combo box. any help will be appreciated.

The option should be inside select element, which should be inside form element. Is it so?
You can access form values from $_GET or $_POST php predefined variables.
