Setting the pointer of a while do loop to match the current variable


Recommended Posts

I'm having a bit of trouble maintaining the value of a variable within a while do loop.  It seems the pointer keeps pointing to the first id no matter how many loops there are.  I've inserted a hidden field which pulls in each id with shows the IDs are fine but whenever I click on 'editForm' anchor it always points to either the first or last id in the loop, (depending on whether I put the editForm div tag before or after the loop).  Can anyone out there help me fix this problem?  The code is shown below:

$('.formEditAnchor').click(function() {
 function editFunction($editID) {
  $database = new database();
  $res = $database->selectDB("select content as EditContent from content where id = '$editID'");
  $editForm = "<form method='POST' action='_scripts/_php/edit-file.php'>";
  $editForm.= "<textarea name='saveContent' cols='70' rows='25'>";
 while($row = mysql_fetch_array($res)) {
  $row = mysql_fetch_array($res);
    $editableFile = $row['EditContent'];
    $editableContent = file($editableFile);
    $editableString = implode($editableContent);
  $editForm.=  $editableString;
  $editForm.= "</textarea>";
  $editForm.=  "<input type='hidden' name='hiddenEditPath' value='<?php echo $editableFile; ?>' />";
  $editForm.=  "<br />";
  $editForm.=  "<input type='submit' name='saveFile' value='Save'>"; 
  $editForm.=  "</form>";
  return $editForm;
 function submitEditForm() {
  if (isset($_POST['formEditAnchor'])) {
   $usersReplyId = $_POST['hiddenUserReplyID'];
   $returnEdit = editFunction($usersReplyId);
   return $returnEdit;
 $result3 = $database->selectDB("select * from blog_content where content_id = '$id'");

 $r = array(); 
 while($rows = mysql_fetch_array($result3)) {
  $myID = $rows['id'];
  $file = $rows['content'];
  $contents = file($file);
  $string = implode($contents);
    <form name="editMyForm" id="editMyForm" method="post" action"<?php echo $_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]?>">
    <input type="hidden" name="hiddenUserReplyID" id="hiddenUserReplyID" value="<?php echo $myID ?>" />
      <td bgcolor="#F8F7F1" align="center">Date/Time:<?php echo $rows['datetime']; ?></td>
      <td bgcolor="#f8f7f1"><?php
                echo $string;
                echo "<br /><br />";
      <td><a href="#editContent" class="create-content" id="formEditAnchor" onclick="<?php $myReturnEdit = submitEditForm(); ?>">Edit File</a></td>
<div id='editContent' class='create-topic'>
     echo $myReturnEdit;
