Can somebody help me fix this code for a dropdown selection

Recommended Posts

Problem: I don't know enough about PHP to trim the code to do it.

Issue: I'm trying to add a Category dropdown and a Manufacture dropdown to the header.

 

So basically header will have dropdown selections very similar to this website: http://www.srbymichael.com/

 

I'm able to nest them and do the graphical stuff around them but I just can't seem to get the code from the /includes/boxes to only display the a dropdown

 

Category code that needs modified. (This is from an addon that already formats categories into dropdown)

<!-- categories //-->
	  <tr>
		<td>
<?php

 function tep_get_paths($categories_array = '', $parent_id = '0', $indent = '', $path='') {
global $languages_id;

if (!is_array($categories_array)) $categories_array = array();

$categories_query = tep_db_query("select c.categories_id, cd.categories_name from " . TABLE_CATEGORIES . " c, " . TABLE_CATEGORIES_DESCRIPTION . " cd where parent_id = '" . (int)$parent_id . "' and c.categories_id = cd.categories_id and cd.language_id = '" . (int)$languages_id . "' order by sort_order, cd.categories_name");
while ($categories = tep_db_fetch_array($categories_query)) {
  if ($parent_id=='0'){
$categories_array[] = array('id' => $categories['categories_id'],
								  'text' => $indent . $categories['categories_name']);
  }
  else{
$categories_array[] = array('id' => $path . $parent_id . '_' .$categories['categories_id'],
								  'text' => $indent . $categories['categories_name']);
  }

  if ($categories['categories_id'] != $parent_id) {
$this_path=$path;
if ($parent_id != '0')
  $this_path = $path . $parent_id . '_';
	$categories_array = tep_get_paths($categories_array, $categories['categories_id'], $indent . '  ', $this_path);
  }
}

return $categories_array;
 }

 $info_box_contents = array();
 $info_box_contents[] = array('align' => 'left',
						   'text'  => BOX_HEADING_CATEGORIES
						  );
 new infoBoxHeading($info_box_contents, true, false);

 $info_box_contents = array();
 $info_box_contents[] = array('form' => '<form action="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT) . '" method="get">' . tep_hide_session_id(),
						   'align' => 'left',
						   'text'  => tep_draw_pull_down_menu('cPath', tep_get_paths(array(array('id' => '', 'text' => PULL_DOWN_DEFAULT))), $cPath, 'onchange="this.form.submit();"')
						  );
 new infoBox($info_box_contents);
?>

	  </tr>

Manufactures Code that needs modified:

$manufacturers_query = tep_db_query("select manufacturers_id, manufacturers_name from " . TABLE_MANUFACTURERS . " order by manufacturers_name");
 if ($number_of_rows = tep_db_num_rows($manufacturers_query)) {
?>
<!-- manufacturers //-->
	  <tr>
		<td>
<?php
$info_box_contents = array();
$info_box_contents[] = array('text' => BOX_HEADING_MANUFACTURERS);

new infoBoxHeading($info_box_contents, false, false);

if ($number_of_rows <= MAX_DISPLAY_MANUFACTURERS_IN_A_LIST) {
// Display a list
  $manufacturers_list = '';
  while ($manufacturers = tep_db_fetch_array($manufacturers_query)) {
	$manufacturers_name = ((strlen($manufacturers['manufacturers_name']) > MAX_DISPLAY_MANUFACTURER_NAME_LEN) ? substr($manufacturers['manufacturers_name'], 0, MAX_DISPLAY_MANUFACTURER_NAME_LEN) . '..' : $manufacturers['manufacturers_name']);
	if (isset($HTTP_GET_VARS['manufacturers_id']) && ($HTTP_GET_VARS['manufacturers_id'] == $manufacturers['manufacturers_id'])) $manufacturers_name = '<b>' . $manufacturers_name .'</b>';
	$manufacturers_list .= '<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT, 'manufacturers_id=' . $manufacturers['manufacturers_id']) . '">' . $manufacturers_name . '</a><br>';
  }

  $manufacturers_list = substr($manufacturers_list, 0, -4);

  $info_box_contents = array();
  $info_box_contents[] = array('text' => $manufacturers_list);
} else {
// Display a drop-down
  $manufacturers_array = array();
  if (MAX_MANUFACTURERS_LIST < 2) {
	$manufacturers_array[] = array('id' => '', 'text' => PULL_DOWN_DEFAULT);
  }

  while ($manufacturers = tep_db_fetch_array($manufacturers_query)) {
	$manufacturers_name = ((strlen($manufacturers['manufacturers_name']) > MAX_DISPLAY_MANUFACTURER_NAME_LEN) ? substr($manufacturers['manufacturers_name'], 0, MAX_DISPLAY_MANUFACTURER_NAME_LEN) . '..' : $manufacturers['manufacturers_name']);
	$manufacturers_array[] = array('id' => $manufacturers['manufacturers_id'],
								   'text' => $manufacturers_name);
  }

  $info_box_contents = array();
  $info_box_contents[] = array('form' => tep_draw_form('manufacturers', tep_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT, '', 'NONSSL', false), 'get'),
							   'text' => tep_draw_pull_down_menu('manufacturers_id', $manufacturers_array, (isset($HTTP_GET_VARS['manufacturers_id']) ? $HTTP_GET_VARS['manufacturers_id'] : ''), 'onChange="this.form.submit();" size="' . MAX_MANUFACTURERS_LIST . '" style="width: 100%"') . tep_hide_session_id());
}

new infoBox($info_box_contents);
?>
		</td>
	  </tr>
<!-- manufacturers_eof //-->
<?php
 }
?>

 

 

 

If somebody has a few moments I would appreciate the help in triming the code to just generate the dropdown array and leave off all the info box stuff. I've spent about 3 hours trying and just can't seem to get it right.

 

Thank you,

Don

This is horrid lol

The manufacture code does not like to be in the header at all, however I could use the code from the Manufature's info.

 

 

I really want to ditch the "box' and just use a drop down however if I have to use the boxes is there a way to keep them all the same size?
