Filling a select tag

by KiltOtter
On my hunt for a simple explanation on how to do things in CakePHP, I found I was coming up with ingredients, but not getting any baking done. This short snippet is the first example in how to fill a select tag using Cake.
In your controller use something like:

function index()
    $this->set('studyarealist', $this->Studyarea->generateList( 
                null, "areaName ASC", null, "{n}", 
The snippet above gets all the studyareas from the studyarea table, and then saves the id and areaName in the atudyarealist variable.

In the view we use something like:

    <?php echo $html->selectTag('Studyareas/areaName'$studyarealist);?>
