    auto-create more textboxes?

    is there a way to automatically have a certain amount of textboxes appear in a form based on a set number in the previous page? i have an admin panel that you can add an album to the database, and i have a dropdown menu where you can select that there are 1-25 tracks on the album you are adding... but i want it so when you click Continue, it shows that many textboxes for titles of the tracks... but i dont want to make all 25 fields 25 times in html

    Just use a loop, --

    PHP Code:
    for ( $i 0$i $numItems$i++ ) {
    $textBoxes .= "<input type=\"text\" name=\"text$i\"/>\n";

    Or at least something along those lines. ..
