Re: How do I create filter dropdown list?

So far at the moement I have the following; 

 

<?php
function getSelectBox($attributeCode, $label = '', $defaultSelect = null, $extraParams = null){
$options = array();
$product = Mage::getModel('catalog/product');
$attribute = $product->getResource()->getAttribute($attributeCode);
if($attribute->usesSource()){
$options = $attribute->getSource()->getAllOptions(false);
array_unshift($options, array('label' => $label, 'value' => ''));
}

$select = Mage::app()->getLayout()->createBlock('core/html_select')
->setName($attributeCode)
->setId($attributeCode)
->setTitle($label)
->setValue($defaultSelect)
->setExtraParams($extraParams)
->setOptions($options);
return $select->getHtml();
}
?>

<?php echo getSelectBox('manufacturer', 'Select Manufacturer'); ?>
