Its the same way hbk. In PHP, you rerieve only the value field of selected item in the drop down box.

So lets say, if the dropdown box have a following dropdown box
<select name="yourBox">
<option value="1">A</option>
<option value="2">B</option>
<option value="3">C</option>
<option value="4">D</option>
, then when you select C and submit, you can access $yourBox as you would for your text inputs, and the value of the same would be 3.
