- [Voiceover] In this movie,…we're going to write a function,…which will make it easy for us to output an option list…of the timezones supported by PHP.…We have our HTML form all ready…and we have two places where we want to output…a list of the timezones as select options.…For the from timezone that we're picking…and also, the "to timezone,"…the target that we're picking.…So for both of those, we wanna have a select option list.…We've generated this select option list before.…We did it back in Chapter Four.…And you can go back to that work that we did,…or you can look in the exercise files in order to find it.…
I'm gonna go back here,…and let's go to "timezone selection."…Then I'm gonna open up index.php.…Here's the code right here…for that timezone output,…for outputting those selections.…Everything from right below select,…all the way to right above select.…So I'm gonna copy that.…I'm just gonna switch by over,…and I could paste that code in right here,…and also, right here again.…But if I did, I'd be repeating myself…
