updating database

Recommended Posts

Hi friends, the below code, which I've worked on quite a while,  creates  a dropdown, selects a record with a link to visit the url of that  record.   one ? can I update the table b4 closing?


below is code:


include ('homedb-connect.php');



<title>lookup menu</title>



<form name="form" method="post" action="">



//This creates the drop down box

echo "<select name= 'target'>";

echo '<option value="">' . '--- Select account ---' . '</option>';

$query = mysqli_query($conn, "SELECT target FROM infotbl");

  if ($query === false)

  { echo "Something went wrong<br />"; echo mysqli_error($conn); }

else { while ($row = mysqli_fetch_array($query))

  { echo "<option value='" . $row['target'] . "'>" . $row['target'] . '</option>'; }


echo '</select>';


<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit"/>




// ==============================================

if (isset($_REQUEST['target']))


  $target = $_REQUEST['target'];

  // ===============================================

  $fetch  = "SELECT id, target, purpose, user, password, email, visits, lastused

FROM infotbl WHERE target = '" . mysqli_real_escape_string($conn, $target) . "'";

  // ===============================================================================


  $result = mysqli_query($conn, $fetch);

  if (!$result) { echo "Error:" . (mysqli_error($conn)); }


  //display the table

  echo '<table border="1"><tr><td bgcolor="cyan" align="center">lookup menu</td></tr>


<table border="1">



<td bgcolor="#ccffff"> Target </td>

<td bgcolor="violet"> Purpose </td>

<td bgcolor="#ccffff"> User </td>

<td bgcolor="#ccffff">Password </td>

<td bgcolor="#ccffff"> Email </td>

<td bgcolor="#cyan"> Visits </td>

<td bgcolor="#cyan"> lastused</td>



  while ($data = mysqli_fetch_row($result))



  // ==========================================================

  $url  = "http://$target";

  $link = '<a href="' . $url . '">' . $data[0] . '</a>';

  // ===========================================================


  echo ("<tr><td> $link </td><td>$data[1]</td><td>$data[2]</td><td>$data[3]</td>



  echo '</table>






this is my update code:


$target = $_POST["target"];   

  $visits = 'visits';

  $Lastused = 'Lastused';   

  $sql = "UPDATE receiptno SET visits=visits+1, lastused=NOW() WHERE target=$target";

if ($conn->query($sql) === TRUE) { echo "Record updated successfully"; }

 else { echo "Error updating record: " . $conn->error; }

Sounds like a job for the dynamic duo, Ajax and Javascript.
