Passing session variable from Dreamweaver repeat region

Recommended Posts



'm using Dreamweaver CS6,My SQL and Php...

I am displaying a list of companies from a recordset on companies.php, then I place a link on the company id which takes me to company_details.php which displays that companies details, the recordset is filterd by a session variable 'vartest'. This works fine until I place the results on companies.php in to a repeat region, when I do this, the value of the session variable 'comp_id' remains equal to the id of the first record in the recordset no matter which record is clicked on.

How do I populate the session 'vartest' with the selected $rows id.

Any and all help appreciated..





I have posted the code of the page in question, showing the Dreamweaver recordset and the repeat region applied.



<?php require_once('Connections/connpay.php'); ?>

<?php session_start();?>


if (!function_exists("GetSQLValueString")) {

function GetSQLValueString($theValue, $theType, $theDefinedValue = "", $theNotDefinedValue = "")


if (PHP_VERSION < 6) {

$theValue = get_magic_quotes_gpc() ? stripslashes($theValue) : $theValue;



$theValue = function_exists("mysql_real_escape_string") ? mysql_real_escape_string($theValue) : mysql_escape_string($theValue);


switch ($theType) {

case "text":

$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";


case "long":

case "int":

$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? intval($theValue) : "NULL";


case "double":

$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? doubleval($theValue) : "NULL";


case "date":

$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";


case "defined":

$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? $theDefinedValue : $theNotDefinedValue;



return $theValue;




$maxRows_rstest = 10;

$pageNum_rstest = 0;

if (isset($_GET['pageNum_rstest'])) {

$pageNum_rstest = $_GET['pageNum_rstest'];


$startRow_rstest = $pageNum_rstest * $maxRows_rstest;


mysql_select_db($database_connpay, $connpay);

$query_rstest = "SELECT * FROM db_company";

$query_limit_rstest = sprintf("%s LIMIT %d, %d", $query_rstest, $startRow_rstest, $maxRows_rstest);

$rstest = mysql_query($query_limit_rstest, $connpay) or die(mysql_error());

$row_rstest = mysql_fetch_assoc($rstest);


if (isset($_GET['totalRows_rstest'])) {

$totalRows_rstest = $_GET['totalRows_rstest'];

} else {

$all_rstest = mysql_query($query_rstest);

$totalRows_rstest = mysql_num_rows($all_rstest);


$totalPages_rstest = ceil($totalRows_rstest/$maxRows_rstest)-1;
