I'm having problem trying to use 2 values in Select From List... I need to use 2 e-mails for each option selected..

1;<<Select a Option>>;
0;Normal;; (That works, of course)
0;Test1;, (Thats what I need) Example1
0;Test2;| (Thats what I need) Example2

But how I can make this works? I have no ideia how to put 2 values together...

id your question about storing those twq email addresses or about sending emails to those adresses?

If you want to send an email to both you will need to do this in another way.

In this case you will need to create custom emails with PHP. Please see the following link how this can be done:

A solution could be creating a custom En Submit Script:
Form > Advanced > More options > SUBMIT PIECES > custom END SUBMIT.

But first of all you should change your select list. For this example the select list name will be 'mylist':
1;<<Select a Option>>;

Now, in that End Submit, enter a code like this:
$from = ''; // Change this to the EMAIL ADDRESS you want to appear in the Email's FROM field
$fromname = 'Your Company Name'; // Change this to the 'FROM' NAME you want to appear in the Email
$recipient = ff_getSubmit('mylist'); // HERE IT WILL BE TAKE THE SELECT LIST VALUE (a,b,c)
$subject = 'Your Subject Here';
$body = '';

foreach ($this->maildata as $data) {
   $body .= $data[_FF_DATA_TITLE].": ".$data[_FF_DATA_VALUE].nl();

if ($recipient = "a") {
$this->sendMail($from, $fromname, "", $subject, $body); 

if ($recipient = "b") {
$this->sendMail($from, $fromname, "", $subject, $body); 
$this->sendMail($from, $fromname, "", $subject, $body); 

if ($recipient = "c") {
$this->sendMail($from, $fromname, "", $subject, $body); 
$this->sendMail($from, $fromname, "", $subject, $body);

Hi there!

I can't get this code to work. Am I missing something here?

1. The $from and $fromname do nothing in the mailback emails.

2. The mailback emails go to all the listed email addresses in $recipient, not just the email selected.

As I examine the code given above, it should do exactly what I need. I see it's a fairly old post. Does this code work in the latest version of Joomla, latest version of BreezingForms and PHP7.2?

If it does work I'll need to study further to get it working.

However, I've successfully used following the code in the value field of a hidden input type to get the record ID in the subject line and in the body of the email.
<?php $db = JFactory::getDBO(); $db->setQuery("SELECT count(*) FROM #__facileforms_records where form=37"); return $db->loadResult() + 1; ?>

If this code could be edited for another purpose, to get the label of a given select list from the database this would be the next best thing.

If I don't use the code given above in form>advanced>more options>Submit pieces>End Submit (which doesn't work for me), I can send the mailback to the selected department by adding the email address as the label and it reports the email address in the email body. That's fine. But I also need to add the department name which is the Label in the select list.

So, as above, is it possible to use different PHP code to do this?
