Re: iframe


Recommended Posts

Hi Everybody,

[color=blue]Here's my situation:[/color]

I've connected to a database and populated a select/combo box. No problem.

When the user makes a selection and submits the form, a new page is opened which displays a query according to their selection. Again no problem.

[color=blue]Here is the problem:[/color]

On my form page, I have placed an iframe. I'm trying to load the iframe with the new page that displays the query, but I receive errors along the lines that the variables don't exist. So what's happening?!

The reason for the iframe is so that the user can make a selection and update to see the immediate effect of their choice. Otherwise, they have to go back to the form page, which is rather annoying.

If anyone has come across this before, or can offer wise words of wisdom, I would be grateful indeed.

Thanks in advance all,

Thanks for the replies.

This is the code of my form page.

<script type="text/javascript">
function Loaders() {
document.all.Loader.src = 'Main_Display.php';

$query = odbc_exec($odbc, "SELECT * FROM Verb_Listing ORDER BY Verb_ita") or die (odbc_errormsg());


<form id="form1" name="form1" method="post" action="javascript:Loaders()">

<label> <input type="checkbox" name="Ind_Pres" value="true" checked="checked" /> Indicative: Present </label>
<br />
<label> <input type="checkbox" name="Ind_Pass_Pros" value="true" /> Indicative: Passato Prossimo </label>
<br />
<label> <input type="checkbox" name="Ind_Pass_Rem" value="true" /> Indicative: Passato Remoto </label>
<br />
<br />

<select name="Verb_ID" size="20" class="st1">
while($row = odbc_fetch_array($query))
echo "\n";
$Italian_Verb = strtolower($row['Verb_ita']);
echo " <option value = \" " . $row['Verb_ID'] . " \"> " . $Italian_Verb . " &emsp; &emsp; &emsp; [ to " . $row['Verb_ing'] . " ]" . " </option> ";

    <input type="submit" name="btnSelect" value="Select" style="width: 150px" />


<iframe name="Loader" width="300" marginwidth="1" height="250" marginheight="1" align="top" scrolling="auto" allowtransparency="true"></iframe>

And this is the code of the file being called (Main_Display.php):


$verb = $_POST["Verb_ID"];
$Ind_Pres = $_POST["Ind_Pres"];
$Ind_Pass_Pros = $_POST["Ind_Pass_Pros"];
$Ind_Pass_Rem = $_POST["Ind_Pass_Rem"];

$query2 = odbc_exec($odbc, "SELECT Verb_ita FROM Verb_Listing WHERE Verb_ID = $verb") or die (odbc_errormsg());
$Title = odbc_fetch_array($query2);

echo "<div align = 'center'>";
echo "<table width = '125' border = '0' cellpadding = '0' cellspacing= '0' class = 'table_style'>";
echo "<tr>";
echo "<td class = 'verb_header'>" . strtoupper($Title['Verb_ita']) . "</td>";
echo "</tr>";
echo "</table>";
echo "</div>";

echo "<br>";

echo $Ind_Pres;
echo $Ind_Pass_Pros;
echo $Ind_Pass_Rem;

// Display PRESENT tense.
if ($Ind_Pres == true) {
} else {
$Ind_Pres = true;

// Display SIMPLE PAST.
if ($Ind_Pass_Pros != null) {

// Display REMOTE PAST.
if ($Ind_Pass_Rem != null) {
