    I have a DPDT toggle switch, and I like to give two inputs to it
    (AC and DC) .
    by toggling the switch to AC I like to get AC out put, and toggling to
    DC I like to get DC out put.( one at a time).
    what would be the wiring look line?
    thanks for the help.

    It would help to know what kind of load you're switching and what kind
    of voltage you're talking about.

    Looking at the back of a common DPDT toggle switch (no guarantee yours
    is the same!) there should be six terminals:

    1 2
    3 4
    5 6

    3 connects to either 1 or 5, depending on the switch position.
    Likewise 4 connects to either 2 or 6. 1, 3, or 5 never connect to 2,
    4, or 6. Verify with an ohmmeter.

    Connect the two AC wires to 1 and 2.
    Connect the + and - DC wires to 5 and 6
    Connect the load to 3 and 4.

    And it would help if you would quote the post to which you are commenting.
