    Question Dropdwon list in html

    I need some help. I am a newbie to php ..
    What I am trying to do is to parse an xml file and create a drop-down for the user.
    I have attached how my drop down list looks currently.
    What I want to do is to add a sub list to each option.. say to networkSecurity I want to add option a,b,c,d which I have to read from the same xml file.
    How this can be done ?
    To create normal drop-down list my code looks like

    Code:
    <?php
    
        $xml=simplexml_load_file('info.xml');
        foreach($xml->testcase as $var){
    
            $var=explode('/',$var->script);
    
            $module[] =$var[2];
    	
            $testName[] = end($var);
     }
            echo "<pre>";
            print_r($module);
    		
           
            print_r($testName);
    		
    		$modules = array_unique($module); 
    		
    foreach($modules as $newarr) 
    {
    
     $newmodules[]=$newarr;
     }
    
     print_r($newmodules);
     	
     ?> 
    <select name="module" id="Module">
            <?php
            $i=0;
            foreach($newmodules as $mod)
            {
                ?>
                <option value="<?php echo $mod;?>"><?php echo $newmodules[$i];?></option>
                <?php
    		 $i++;
    	   }
        ?>
        </select>
    XML file -

    Code:
    <testcase>
            <name>AutoTFTP_IPv6_05.Enable_Disable</name>
            <testcaseID>889437</testcaseID>

            <suiteInfo>
                <suite>SDN</suite>
                <suite>SDN_CONTROLLER</suite>
            </suiteInfo>
        </testcase>
    What i want to do is to parse the xml file, read the script tag and based on the 3rd position of script (hostAgentFeatures or sdnSTC) I have to create a dropdown list. Later I want to check all such script tags and read for 3rd position and for say sdnSTC I want to read the last value of script tag (ending with ".tcl") and create it as a sub drop-down list for sdnSTC.
    How this can be done ?

    In your XML, there should be a root element, that is, an element that everything is contained within. It doesn't matter what you call it, for example, in the below code, <root> is the root element.

    Code:
    <root>
         <testcase>
              <status>1</status>
         </testcase>
         <testcase>
              <status>2</status>
         </testcase>
    </root>
    To do what you want, I'd recommend using simple_xml's built-in xpath function, which allows you to easily retrieve elements and perform filtering operations. For example (UNTESTED):

    PHP Code:
    $results $xml->xpath("//script[contains(script, 'sdnSTC')]");
    foreach(
    $results as $result) {
         
    // create the <option> tags
