form issue

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


I am building up a site and I have a form that is kind off tricky.


I have 3 depenendable select boxes in my form for category,first-subcategory,second-subcategory that been written in using javascript.


But the form itself has other elements that needs to be parsed to a php scripts.


The 3 dependable select boxes has no action attribute, ie action=" " for it to work according to the written javascript and I have copied this script from a forum help section. I had to integrate this 3 dependable select boxes into my original form which parses to a action="inventory.php" script.


When I integrate the 3 dependable boxes into my form that parses to action="inventory.php" the dependable boxes dont work for first-subcategory,second-subcategory as the javascript requires action=" " and not action="inventory.php".


However i need the form to be parsed to the "inventory.php" script. 


below is my code..Can somebody advise and make this work for me..





if (!isset($_SESSION["manager"])){
/* checking if this is a valid session in database  */
include "../storescripts/connect_to_mysql.php";  /* connect to database */
/* do a query on database */
$sql=mysql_query("SELECT * FROM admin WHERE id='$managerID' AND username='$username' AND password='$password'");
$row=mysql_num_rows($sql);/* counting the number of rows returned from above query */
{ echo "You are not authorised to enter this region as your credentials are not valid on our database";
exit(); }
/* list all the products for viewing*/
$sql=mysql_query("SELECT * FROM products");
if ($count>0)
{ while($row = mysql_fetch_array($sql)){
$product_list .= "$id- $product_name- $price- $List1- $List2- $List3-$date_added  <a href='#'>edit</a> •<a href='#'>delete</a> <br>";
$product_list = "You dont have any products listed in your store yet";

in case the OP revisits this thread. there are several reasons why no one attempted to reply to this thread -


1) it is in the wrong forum section. it has nothing to do with Php Math Help.


2) it is the same task/problem as your previous thread and your follow-on thread. you seem to be just trying different things, throwing code and forum threads away. no one is going to try and understand what your code is doing in order to help you with it if you don't stick to the same thread for your task.


3) you didn't post the code using the forum's

bbcode tags (the edit form's <> button).


4) i doubt anyone can understand the statement of the question/problem. you need to just post the relevant facts.
