No word wrap?

Recommended Posts

I have been developing a mobile phone version of my website and have a problem I can't solve.

The code works fine on the PC and iPad version, but when I output the data into a table on the mobile version, it does not wrap the text in the cell.

 

I have tried changing the CSS style using- word-wrap: break-word; but this does not make any difference.

Both the header row and all of the data rows seem all bunched up.

Here is the CSS script:

body

{

margin:0px;

padding:0px;

font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;

}


img

{

border:none;

}


ul,li,h1,h2,h3,h4,h5,h6,p,span,td,div

{

margin:0px;

padding:0px;

line-height:0px;

list-style:none;

}


li a,a,a:hover,li a:hover

{

text-decoration:none;

}



input,

textarea,

select {

            font:100% Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;

            vertical-align:middle;

            color:#000;

            outline:none;

}

form, fieldset {

            margin:0;

            padding:0;

            border-style:none;

}

Here is the php/html script I am running:

<?php

$verify_Event_res =  mysqli_query($mysqli, $verify_Event_sql) or die(mysqli_error($mysqli));


if (mysqli_num_rows($verify_Event_res) < 1) {

            //this Event does not exist

            $display_block = "<p><em>You have selected an invalid Event.<br/>

            Please try again.</em></p>";


} else {

//get the Event ID

            while ($Event_info = mysqli_fetch_array($verify_Event_res)) {

                        $Event_ID = stripslashes($Event_info['ID']);

                        $Event_Name = ($Event_info['Event_Type']);

            }


$verify_Mood_sql = "SELECT ID, Event_Sub_Type FROM Event_Sub WHERE ID = '".$_POST["Mood"]."'";

$verify_Mood_res =  mysqli_query($mysqli, $verify_Mood_sql) or die(mysqli_error($mysqli));


if (mysqli_num_rows($verify_Mood_res) < 1) {

            //this Event does not exist

            $display_block = "<p><em>You have selected an invalid Mood.<br/>

                        $Mood_Name = ($Mood_info['Event_Sub_Type']);

            }

            //gather the Events

            $get_Event_sql  = "SELECT Verses.ID AS versesID, Verses.Verse, Verses.Sub_Type, Verses.Event, Events.ID AS eventsID, Events.Event_Type, Event_Sub.ID AS event_SubID, Event_Sub.Event_Sub_Type

Why is this happening?

Can anybody help?

This would not be a PHP or MySQL problem. It would be a problem in the HTML/CSS. Posting the server-side code only complicates our ability to help you. Please provide the output that is causing the problem. If you provide a link to a page with the problem, it would be helpful to work with the CSS code to debug.

 

But, right off the bat I see invalid HTML code. On line 133 there is no closing greater than symbol for the TD tag. Also, the value for the input on line 137 should be enclosed in quotes.

 

Also, why all the lines of code to clear the mysql results before you close the table? It's not invalid, just not logical in my opinion.

I believe this is your problem:

 

ol,ul,li,h1,h2,h3,h4,h5,h6,p,span,td,div
{
margin:0px;
padding:0px;
line-height:0px;  <== REMOVE THIS
list-style:none;
}

 

It makes no sense to my why you would globally apply those style properties to all those elements anyway. For example, what does list_style have to do with header tags?

Hi Psycho

 

Thanks that did the trick!

 

Having solved that another problem has arisen.

 

When the Submit button is clicked absolutly nothing happens.

No error, it just stays on the page.

Again extactly the same code works on PC and iPad versions.

Regarding you comments about lines 133 & 137, they are all one line and the </td> is on line 140.

I am guessing that it must be in the stylesheet, but I can see anything that I know of that would influence the Submit button.

 

Do you think that this problem should be a new thread, if so I will re-post?

Regarding you comments about lines 133 & 137, they are all one line and the </td> is on line 140.

 

You misinterpreted my comment. I didn't say there was no closing TD tag. I said there was no closing bracket for the opening tag.

 

Line 133 above is this:

 

 

<td width=\"15%\" valign=\"middle\"

 

It should be this:

 
<td width=\"15%\" valign=\"middle\">

 

As for your new problem, I doubt it is a CSS issue. It is likely an HTML. When I ran your page through an HTML validator, there were plenty of errors. I recall there was one or more about the FORM tags.

Yep, I was right. The HTML is invalid. On every row in your results you have an opening FORM tag and a a radio button input. But, you don't close the form! instead there is a single closing form tag after all the records (and multiple opening forms) are created.

 

However, something else is wrong as well. Even on a page with just one record (where there would only be one FORM opening tag, it still doesn't work. But, there are so many other problems it's not worth my time to try and troubleshoot. The HTML output is a mess. Many problems should not have any functional implications, but it all adds up.

 

Here's one tip for you:

 

In the code to produce each row of verses, you are defining the width for each column in the TD element. It would be much simpler to just define the width ONE TIME when creating the header row. Less code to clutter the logic and less output to send to the browser.
