in reply to creating CGI::scrolling_list ... can this be shortened?

Using much the same technique as described here:

my $sth = $dbh->prepare("SELECT id, display_name FROM membership ORDER + BY display_name"); $sth->execute; my %row; $sth->bind_columns( \( @row{ @{$sth->{NAME_lc} } } )); while ($sth->fetch) { my $memberWidget = $q->scrolling_list( -name => '...', -values => [ @row{sort keys %row}], -labels => \%row, ... ); push (@memberWidgets, $memberWidget); }

I'm not sure about the -values and -labels option of scrolling_list (as I've never used CGI built-ins) but this should get you started (and the keys aren't sorted but the order you get it from the database is the same).

    well, since you're not familiar with the CGI builtins, you're missing something very imporant ... you're creating N widgets ( where N is the number of rows returned ), not creating N options in the scrolling list.

    i'm sure something more like a Scwartzian Transform in the original  map would do it...
