  1. Hi all, I'm looking for some pointers in regards to my form.. How would I firstly trim the $_POST value of the variables that come through via the form (I'm only using one for now)..I know I'm making a right dogs dinner of it. In my head I'm thinking, trim all the posts first before i even assign a variable to it ( i dont know if thats possible), then use an array for when more values start coming through via the form. You know as i make a contact form that requires more data from the user.. <?php require_once '../connection/dbconfig.php'; include_once('../connection/connectionz.php'); //get the values //Get the request method from the $_SERVER $requestType = $_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD']; //this is what type //echo $requestType ; if($requestType == 'POST') { //now trim all $_POSTS $search_products = trim($_POST['search_products']); // if(empty($search_products)){ echo '<h4>You must type a word to search!</h4>'; }else{ $make = '<h4>No match found!</h4>'; $new_search_products = "%" . $search_products . "%"; $sql = "SELECT * FROM product WHERE name LIKE ?"; //prepared statement $stmt = mysqli_stmt_init($conDB); //prepare prepared statements if(!mysqli_stmt_prepare($stmt,$sql)) { echo "SQL Statement failed"; }else{ //bind parameters to the placeholder mysqli_stmt_bind_param($stmt, "s", $new_search_products ); mysqli_stmt_execute($stmt); $result = mysqli_stmt_get_result($stmt); echo'<h2> Search Result</h2>'; echo 'You searched for <strong><em>'. $search_products.'</em></strong>'; while($row = mysqli_fetch_assoc($result)){ echo '<h4> (ID : '.$row['pid']; echo ') Book Title : '.$row['name']; echo '</h4>'; } } } } ;?> If any one can shed some light on this, or some pointers..that would be very nice... Thanks Darren
