hi all

I am trying to process a result from a query but cant use a echo in a while statement

Here is the code

I am trying to get the result from each row in the table and then display them

 

I get the error Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_ECHO in C:\wamp\www\blackrain\Resources\read.php on line 13

 

<?php

$link = mysql_connect('localhost', 'root', '');

if (!$link) {

    die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());

}

 

mysql_select_db("php");

 

                $rs = "SELECT `id`, `title`, `author`, `date`, `imageUrl`, `text` FROM `items` ";

                                                                $rs_return = mysql_query($rs) or trigger_error($rs . ' has encountered an error: <br />'. mysql_error());

                                                                while($obj = mysql_fetch_array($rs_return, MYSQL_ASSOC)) {"

                                                                <h1>"+

                                                                echo $obj['title'];

                                                                +"</h1>

                                                                <div id="+"wrapper"+">

                                                                <div id="text">

                                                                <h4>Posted:"+ echo $obj['author'];+"By:"+ echo $obj['date'] +"</h4>

                                                                <p class="p3">

                                                                <span>

                                                                <img class="+"alignright"+"src="+ echo $obj['imageUrl'];+"> </img>"+

                                                                echo $obj['text'];+"</span></p>"

                                                                }

?>

Ok, First in PHP you concatenate a string with a dot(.) not a plus(+), Second if you are concatenating a string with variables you don't use the echo in the middle.

 

This is an example how you could do it:

 


$link = mysql_connect ( 'localhost', 'root', '' );
if (! $link) {
die ( 'Could not connect: ' . mysql_error () );
}

mysql_select_db ( "php" );

$rs = "SELECT `id`, `title`, `author`, `date`, `imageUrl`, `text` FROM `items` ";
$rs_return = mysql_query ( $rs ) or trigger_error ( $rs . ' has encountered an error: <br />' . mysql_error () );
while ( $obj = mysql_fetch_array ( $rs_return, MYSQL_ASSOC ) ) {

$row  = "<h1>"; 
    $row .= $obj ['title']; 
    $row .= "</h1><div id=\"wrapper\"><div id=\"text\"><h4>Posted:";
    $row .= $obj ['author']."By:".$obj['date']."</h4><p class=\"p3\"><span><img class=\"alignright\" src=\"".$obj ['imageUrl']."\"></img>";
    $row .= $obj ['text'];
$row .= "</span></p>";
}

also you have to remember to escape "

You can do


echo $row;

 

at the end of each cycle

 

while ( $obj = mysql_fetch_array ( $rs_return, MYSQL_ASSOC ) ) {

    $row  = "<h1>"; 
    $row .= $obj ['title']; 
    $row .= "</h1><div id=\"wrapper\"><div id=\"text\"><h4>Posted:";
    $row .= $obj ['author']."By:".$obj['date']."</h4><p class=\"p3\"><span><img class=\"alignright\" src=\"".$obj ['imageUrl']."\"></img>";
    $row .= $obj ['text'];
    $row .= "</span></p>";

    echo $row;
}
