Storing Values

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to create a set of forms where a user can imput a score for a game in a field. Once he/she imputs a score, I need to be able to output it.

If someone would be so kind to create a quick, working, "Hello World" sort of thing, I'd be very appreciative. Thanks!

What do you mean? You want to just write what he submitted?
If so, do something like this:
In form.htm:
[code]
<html>
<form action="form.php" method="POST">
Enter your score:<br>
<input type="text" name="score">&nbsp;
<input type="submit">
</form>
</html>
[/code]
For the form.php:
[code]
<html>
<?php
echo($_POST['score']);
?>
</html>
[/code]
I am not sure if thats what you ment but it sure seems like it.

But if you ment having alot of forms and then output everything, you can either use <input type="hidden"> (not recommended) or use sessions.

Orio.

That is a great start! Here is what I need.

I need the user to be able to go to a tournament page, enter a score, then that page stores the score somewhere so others can view it ( on the same page ).

I'm not quite sure how to approach this. This is a short rough algorithm.


> User enters a score and their name
> Score and name is stored in database
> Score and name is then shown on another page
