form question

Recommended Posts

Hi

I have a page which several forms link to.

i want to refer to the page that the user is coming from but as all pages use the same form to get there i am unsure how to do it.

is there a function which will name the page which you have directly came from?

i dont really know what you're getting at but i think your need to use sessions. Why dont you post the coding you've got so far then it might be a little clearer

I have a very basic form as below on page which when called displays stats

<form name="countrystats" action="countrystats.php" method="get">
<?php
include("hidden_fields_for_separate_forms.php");
?>
<input type="submit" value="Stats">
</form>

For this example it works fine and produces the stats as per the mysql query in the code below

<?php
require("connectmysql.php");
include("get_set_criteria.php");
$countryqry=mysql_query("SELECT country.country_name as countryname, count(all_details_inc_prev.race_no_id)
FROM country
JOIN tracks ON country.country_id=tracks.country_id
JOIN race_numbers ON tracks.track_id=race_numbers.track_id
JOIN all_details_inc_prev ON race_numbers.race_no_id=all_details_inc_prev.race_no_id
$nh_flat_aw_join
WHERE race_numbers.race_no_id > 0 $nh_flat_aw_where $datesettings $trackid
group by countryname;
");

if(mysql_num_rows($countryqry) > 0) {
echo "<table cellpadding=3 border=1 bgcolor=#66CCCC>";
echo "<tr align=center>";
echo "<th> </th> <th>Qualifiers</th>";
echo "</tr>";
while($row = mysql_fetch_row($countryqry)) {
echo "<tr align=center>";
echo "<td>".$row[0]."</td>";
echo "<td>".$row[1]."</td>";
echo "</tr>";
}
echo "</table>";
}
echo "<br/>";
if(!$countryqry) {
die ('<p> Can\'t use query :</p>' . mysql_error()); }

?>

What i want though is to alter the "countrystats" form and make it communal to many pages so that when called stats are produced for the relevant page. so if i could tell which page the stats form is being clicked i could have many mysql queries in the one statspage ready to produce depending on where the user came from
