Fix my syntax please


Recommended Posts

<TITLE>Test page</TITLE>

<FORM METHOD="get" ACTION="graphtest.html">
<INPUT TYPE=hidden NAME=choice VALUE=request>
Type stock symbol(like: bby)  
<INPUT TYPE="text" SIZE="20" NAME="search" VALUE="">
<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Search!">


if ($choice == request)

echo "<img src= "http://ichart.finance.yahoo.com/z?





Please look at the echo feature, I do not know how to use the proper syntax . Basically I want a user to submit a symbol and I will give out the graph and that graph is in [a href=\"http://ichart.finance..\" target=\"_blank\"]http://ichart.finance..[/a]. url.

The $search would be the input. So basically if someone typed BBY in the box, the output will give the graph of bby.

Many thanks.

Thank you swat, I will fix this and see what happens but before that I am getting error on "echo" line.

Is that how it supposed to be given waht I want as mentioned above. I can follow logic but not syntax.

There are a couple of errors I can see:

if ($choice == request) {
// The above line may need to read
// either "$request" or "'request'"

echo "<img src= "http://ichart.finance.yahoo.com/z?s=""$search""&t=1y&q=c&l=on&z=m&a=v&p=s/>""
// This line should be:
// echo "<img src=\"http://ichart.finance.yahoo.com/z?s=".$search."&t=1y&q=c&l=on&z=m&a=v&p=s\" />";

Hey gast, thank you very much for taking the time out to reply, Yes the code looks cleaner now.

But I am still getting an error. Basically the error is in the whole php codes I think. Thats what I see in dreamweaver.

Is the code logical?

Basically what am I trying to do is, take the user's input and stick in the $search of yahoo url.
