PHP Error message


Recommended Posts

case 'write_ok':



if($_POST['dateofbirth']=='' || !preg_match( "/^(19|20)\d\d[-\\./](0[1-9]|1[012])[-\\./](0[1-9]|[12][0-9]|3[01])$/",$_POST['dateofbirth'])){
	$msg.='Date of birth is required and in the correct format 00/00/0000\n';



the message at the end appears if the error is true. I wanted to know how to not show an errors message if the error is false. Any help on this?

Use break; to prevent looping



$x = 2;

switch ($x){
  case 1:
    echo "The number is one";
  case 2:
    echo "The number is two";
  case 3:
    echo "The number is three";
    echo "Number is greater than 3";

Your logic is screwed.

not a very helpful post..

OP, if this is the only case that you have.. a switch is not the best way to go about this.. simple if else statements will work.. and it looks to me from the code provided, the the $error variable doesn't really do anything.. if both of your conditions specified are met, then an error message will show.. if the aren't met, the error message will not show.. isn't this what you want?
