using pictures as links

Recommended Posts

Hi,

i am working on designing a webpage. I give a list of options for the user to choose from and then once the user has choosen what they want the products avaliable on the option are displayed. The code i have used is:

foreach($food_categories as $key => $subarray)
{
echo "<h3>$key</h3>";
echo "<ul>";
foreach($subarray as $type)
{
echo "<input type='radio' name='interest'
value='$type'><b>$type</b><br>\n";
}
echo "</ul>";
}

This works however u want the user to be able to select from a set of pictures. I have stored the pictures in the database under the heading "pic". A helpful person posted the following code for me to do this however the code doesnt seem to work:

foreach($food_categories as $key => $subarray)
{
echo "<img src=\"$food_categories[$key]['pic']\">";
}

Can any one tell me whats wrong with it please??? Thanks

you will have to place the image generation script into a separate file...

e.g.

genimage.php

[code]
<?php
$qry = mysql_query("SELECT `pic` FROM `yourtable` WHERE `uniqueid` = '$picid'");
echo mysql_result($qry,0,"pic");
?>
[/code]

Then in your imgtag put this...

<img src="genimage.php?picid=<?php echo $food_categories[$key][UNIQUEID];?>">

making sure you replace the UNIQUEID with the name of the field in your table that is the primary (or what ever else you use to identify it)
