I have a tab in the admin for one of my pages where I have a dropdown and a Complex table. I want for the data in the table to populate dynamically from the data selected from the dropdown box. I thought the easiest way to do this would be to have a button next to the dropdown that when clicked refresh's the page and the main php file for the page can read the html variables using $_SESSION / $_GET or by passing the values in the query string. I have been able to figure out the URL you type to get to the main page but not to go straight to the specific tab. I have also tried putting the dropdown into an iframe but whenever I think I get close to solving the problem i don't

Any help or ideas on this would be hugely appreciated.

Thanks in advance for any help.
