Using a PHP var for value

Recommended Posts

Hi

I have created a web form

and am calling a var from MYSQL and placing it as the value (display name) for the submit button, but when i do it is enlarging the button (height) see example:

Current Code works ok:

<input class="H1_Blue_no_background" type="submit" name="Submit" value="Invite">

Produces eg. [Invite] Works Great


Code that does not work:

// Note
// lang_conver($lang_id,332); is returning the value: Invite
// lang_conver is a function we have used.

$lang_id = "1"; //English
// 2 = French
// 3 = German
$tmp = lang_conver($lang_id,332);
<input class="H1_Blue_no_background" type="submit" name="Submit" value="<? echo $tmp;?>">

Produces:
[img src=\"http://www.airnetwifi.com/images/button.gif\" border=\"0\" alt=\"IPB Image\" /]

Crude drawing I know, but hopefully it explains what i am trying to show.

This should work but not sure why the only thing i can think of is that \n is used and therefore creating a new line within the button.. try to echo the value back

[code]
$lang_id = "1"; //English
// 2 = French
// 3 = German
$tmp = lang_conver($lang_id,332);
//replace any \n with <br> therefore causing the same effect of a new line as wont normal..
$tmp=str_replace("\n",'<br>',$tmp);
//echo it out using --- as a guide to check before the var is outputted to tell if it goes to the next line..
echo("--- $tmp ---");
[/code]

this will echo it out and we will see if it's all on 1 line

Its coming back as

--- Invite ---

The function we are using is:

<?php

function lang_conver($langid,$atrid)
{
include("./connect.php");
$connection = mysql_connect($host,$userhost,$dbpassword) or die ("Couldn't connect to server.");
$db = mysql_select_db($database, $connection) or die ("Couldn't select database.");
$sql_lang = "SELECT * FROM language_conversion WHERE LID='$langid' AND ATID='$atrid'";
$result_lang = mysql_query($sql_lang) or die ("Could not execute: " . mysql_error());
$data = mysql_fetch_assoc($result_lang);
$Var_lang = $data['NAME'];
mysql_close($connection);
return ($Var_lang);
}

?>
And the data in the Database is: Invite

I guess it is becuase your database values have \n's in them and so this could be why you are getting a bigger than usual button. SO chnage the following line in your lang_conver function:
[code] $Var_lang = $data['NAME'];[/code]to[code] $Var_lang = str_replace(array("\r", "\n"), '', $data['NAME']);[/code]
Any values that si returned from the database will now have any newline (\n) or carriage returns (\r) stripped out so this should stop what is happening with your button.

Found the solution:

<input class="H1_Blue_no_background" type="submit" value=<?echo lang_conver($lang_id,332);?>>

You do not need the " (quotes) as Browser interprets it in the background as a string.

Thanks for the help
