Hi all,

I really want to get me head around arrays, becuase 
I KNOW there's a better way to do some of the stuff 
i'm doing right now.

I could mess with stuff for a few hours and probably 
get it, but i'd rather have a decent tutorial if 
anyone knows of one...


Thanks,

Justin French

Hi Justin,

That man page is pretty descriptive and contains many examples.  It's
sorta like a tutorial :)  If there is information you (or anyone) feels is
missing, please say so and it'll be looked into and perhaps added.

Regards,
Philip Olson

Just a thought...

Check out crescent internet toolkit by Progress Software.  It has a control 
for VB that lets you post data to a script, rather than relying on an HTML 
form...

Can you just use a query string?  you may have to code your own urlencode() 
function in VB, but that may be an option.

Maybe you can invoke cURL from vb.  It's free, but I do not know if it has 
a Win32 version.

Hope it helps.

I will give it a go and get back......






Regarding your mysql_insert_id() function:

I believe that it works on a connection by connection basis.  Therefore, if 
you execute an insert, and then call that function, you are guarenteed to 
have the correct ID.  Look up the LAST_INSERT_ID() function in the MySQL 
manual on www.mysql.com for more information.

I have this problem with Php 4.0.5 on both  Win ME and Linus boxes, where my
year 2002 dates are converted back to 2001 when formating with 'strtotime'.

First I post the following variables from an html page to a php page

$date1='12/12/2001'
$date2='15/01/2002'

I then use date("D M j Y", strtotime($date1);  and date("D M j Y",
strtotime($date2));
to store them in an array for screen display.

As the users have the abilty to selected different dates I need to check
that 1 is before the other.
To do this I have a script timediff() that I pass the two dates to in the
above format.

All works fine until the year 2002 is selected. This is part of the
timediff() code with dispay statements and the result.

         function timediff($date1,$date2) {

           echo 'date1= '."$date1".' ';        // displays  'Wed December 12
2001'   ....... correct
           echo 'date2= '."$date2".' ';       //  displays   'Tue January 15
2002'       ...........correct, all fine so far

            $dd1=date("Ymd", strtotime($date1));
            $dd2=date("Ymd", strtotime($date2));

           echo 'date1= '.$dd1.'<br>';    // displays  '20011212'   .......
correct
           echo 'date2= '.$dd2.' <br>';   //  displays '20010115
...........WRONG
        }

    It seem that by applying strtotime a 2nd time might cause this problem,
as the first application was fine.

    I have tested all possible combinations of strtotime but the year 2002
always goes back to 2001
Have also tried just 'strtotime($date1)' but same problem again.

Any help or comments would be greatly appreciated as I thought I had
finished a booking program any now find this!!

Thanks in anticipation

Funny, I quickly tried this:

<?
$date1 = "12/12/2001";
$date2 = "15/01/2002";

$date1 = date("D M j Y", strtotime($date1));
$date2 = date("D M j Y", strtotime($date2));

print $date1."<br>";
print $date2."<br>";

print date("Y-m-d", strtotime($date1))."<br>";
print date("Y-m-d", strtotime($date2))."<br>";
?>

And the result was this:
"
Wed Dec 12 2001
Sat Mar 1 2003
2001-12-12
2003-03-01
"

Great. :)

I've got PHP 4.0.6 on linux. You?

I think you should break the dates manually, it would be the most sure
way to do it.

I'm still running 4.0.5 because that is what my web host is running.
Methinks there may be a problem here.

In the meantime I've tried storing the dates in the array in the original
format in lieu of the fully converted format.
I then reformat the original from the array as required for each page
display or time difference calculation.
This works fine, so I might stick with it.
In hindsight, it is probaly the way I should have gone in the first place as
you pointed out. That way I can play with the date, month and year any way I
want.

Thanks for you input.

John

Great. :)

I've got PHP 4.0.6 on linux. You?

I think you should break the dates manually, it would be the most sure
way to do it.

To do the cgi compile, use all the configure values you need EXCEPT 
anything apache related. The compile will produce an executable called, 
strangely, php.

I think there are a few lines in the docs about it somewhere in the 
compile section.

Will it work with apache then?

Matt,
  It sounds like you have a process where the user does this:

  page1.php ->
   fills out and submits form ->
    page2.php which builds a frameset ->
     menu.php and editor.php as the frames, you want menu.php to
     know what the submitted form values were.

  If you've got sessions going cram them into the session, which would
be the easiest probably.  But if you don't, I'd suggest tacking the
variables on the end of the menu.php url something like this:

<frame src="menu.php?var1=<? print val1; ?>&...&varN=<? print valN; ?>" 
name="menuFrame">

  If the amnount of data is too large to do via a get (I can't remember
how much it is, several K at least), you'll have to use some alternative
method to pass them around, a temp file would work, or stuff them into a
database and pull them out again (making sure to pass how to find them
to menu.php).

I'm having a wierd problem with mySQL query.
 
$Query = "SELECT UCASE(Company), Icons, ID, LogoD FROM feComps....";
 
returns right amount of rows, but field Company is empty. 
 
$Query = "SELECT Company, Icons, ID, LogoD FROM feComps.....";
 
works fine.
 
 
First query works great when I run it in shell. What could cause this?

The issue here is that you aren't getting an index of "Company" from that
query.  It is probably stored under the index of "UCASE(Company)".  Try:

$Query = "SELECT UCASE(Company) as ucCompany, Icons, ID,...";

Then the ucCompany field will contain your capitalized company data.

I would recommend you to take a look at this lib for creating pdf's
it's way easier than doing it 'by hand' yourself.

hi,

it happens to me quite often that after testing a mysql table or after
deleting several rows that there are gaps in the numeration of my 'id
field' (key).

i always use the same field type for my 'id field:'
id int(255) unsigned NOT NULL auto_increment,

what is the best way to quickly correct the numeration in my id field,
so that gaps are removed and the numeration is correct again?

by 'gaps', i'm referring to when this auto_increment field has listings
like
1
2
3
7
8
9
13

i have an sql snippet like this:
ALTER TABLE mail_form2 ADD new_id INT UNSIGNED NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
ADD INDEX (new_id);

but this always creates the new key as the very last column in the
table.  also, i have to delete my original key first, or i get an
error-message. isn't there a fast & simple way to correct a key-index?

many thanks,

tom

Thank you very much!  That's odd ... in previous scripts I've written
there wasn't a need for the % character.  Just how long has this change
been intact, anyway?

I have a small but serious problem:

In a webproject of mine a user can select a link to get a compressed archive of files.
The system works in this order:
1 -User clicks the link "download all"
2 ->PHP generates the ZIP-compressed file and presents the user the next website with 
a link "File Archive"
3 -User clicks the link "File Archive"
4 ->PHP reads the file, deletes it and puts it to the browser

Now, where is the problem:
some browsers request the link in step 3 a first time and present the user then a 
dialog "Save file to" (or something similar) and after that dialog those browsers 
request the link a second time. But because PHP doesn't "know" that the browser hasn't 
really downloaded the file but only presented the user some dialog, it has the file 
already deleted. So the second time the browser downloads only my error message 
"Download-Link expired".

How can I do a workaround?
I tried to send a header that it is a .zip file. Didn't work.
I tried to send data without header at all. Didn't work.
I tried several other stupid things which all didn't work.

For some reasons I _have_ to delete the file after beeing downloaded. So I have to 
either find out if the browser only requested the header but not the file (so I can 
let it there and don't delete it) or I have to find a way that the browser request 
that thing only once (which is obviously possible because some IE Versions under 
Windows encountered no problems with that)

Has someone an Idea or a working work-around?

Any help would be appreciated...

Configure php with the following:

--with-gd=/tmp/www/gd-2.0.1
--with-freetype-dir=/usr/local/include/freetype2
--enable-gd-imgstrttf

Then just obtain some chinese/japanese true type fonts and use the
following script below and substitute arial.ttf for the asian font:

<?php
################################################
### draw an image for the header and print some stuff on it.
###############################################

## tell the browser what it is
header("Content-type: image/jpeg");

## draw a new image
$width = 600;
$height = 100;
$image = imagecreate($width, $height);

##make the background same as page
$backg = imagecolorallocate($image, 0, 51, 102);

##make the text white
$text = imagecolorallocate($image, 255, 255, 255);

imagefilledrectangle($image, 0, 0, $width, $height, $backg);

## now let's print some text to the image
imagettftext($image, 40, 0, 60, 75, $text,"/home/www/htdocs/arial.ttf",
"some guy");

## off it goes
imagejpeg($image);

## cleanup
imagedestroy($image);

hi,
on my web site i have an option that user can add their comments about my
articles. I have table articles, and table comments. On table comments
column unique id (auto increment) and articleid. It displays them and sort
coments by unique id. When i delete eg. comment number 4, next comment is
eg.comment number 23. That new comment has unique id 23, but it is placed
instead id comment 4, so i get:

1 comment
2 comment
3 comment
23 comment
4 comment

is this wrong?

For UltraEdit I have edited the words file a bit and added PHP as language
so that it highlights PHP commands as well.
(I haven't included all commands, but a lot)

Just if someone is interested, he/she can send me an email with subject
"UltraEdit Wordfile" :-)

Hi,

does anyone have the script that is supposed to be stored at

Or does anyone know of any other hotel booking system or a similar script in
php? I am mainly interested in the concept of the system. Database relations
and buildup.

interesting one here for y'all

 if you use client side JavaScript to write HTML to the browser, eg
<script language="JavaScript"
document.write ('<b>Hello world!</b>');
</script>
then look at the page source from IE, the page source will show you exactly
what I've typed above, whereas if you view the page source from Netscape
4.7, it shows this in the source:
<b>Hello world!</b>
(this is the way I ewould expect and want it work)

Unfortunately the (rather complex) script I'm writing does completely
different stuff in Netscrape so looking at the page source thru there to see
what's going on is hopeless - is there any way to make IE behave like NS in
this respect and actually show the correct JavaScript output, rather than
the JavaScript code itself??

Cannot believe that NS4.7 is actually better at doing something than IE!!!

I have little experience with this kind of problem.
None of the Browsers I used under mac (IE 4 - 5 and sever NS 4.x) has sent
the data different than Windows Browsers. But avoid the meta-tag charset. I
had serious problems when the HTML-file where the form data came from had
that tag set (but I didn't spend a lot of time investigating it).

Anyway: why do you want to translate a  to an a?
I made good experiences with storing original chars and using htmlentities()
(or otherway round if you don't have to edit that stuff)

illegal chars....

A big thank you to everyone with the help on the ftp module.  I was able 
to finish my project in a few days and my boss thinks I am a hero.  Of 
course he thinks I am using perl too.  :)

Hello
I'm making vbulletin foru hack, that allows to rate members

my code is just 50 lines, I set link to my script from vBulletin page,
and after it has been clicked code executes, and then i want to return
user to the page where he clicked the link leading to my code, i was
wondering how can this be done, use REFERER and then header("Locatiom:
$REFERER";), will this work?


Thank you very much

the best thing to do is register the page the user came from, using
get or post variables, because some browers dont use referers
etc. then just use a header("Location: $theUrl"); where $theUrl is the
url the user came from.

Easier solution:     mysql_data_seek (resource result_identifier, int
row_number)

Example:
$query = "SELECT * FROM mytable";
$result = mysql_query($query) or die("Error: ".mysql_error());
while ($row = mysql_fetch_row($result) )
{
   ...do some stuff...
}
mysql_data_seek($result, 0 );
while ($row = mysql_fetch_row($result) )
{
   ...do some other stuff...
}

Thus, you don't have to store it in an array.

just put it in a loop.

while($val = mysql_fetch_result($result))
  $array[] = $val;

foreach($count = 0; $count < count($array); $count++)
  echo $array[$count]['product_name'];
foreach($count = 0; $count < count($array); $count++)
  echo $array[$count]['product_name'];

php4 has foreach() its better, think of upgrading, there are numerous
reasons.

hi,

i was wondering if anyone has some sample code / links which could help
me generate HTML forms dynamically from the fields/types/lengths of
tables in a mySQL database.

ie, if i had a three column table with first (varchar 50), last (varchar
80) & bio (medium text) as the columns, it'd be great if i could use
this information about the *table* to build a html form.

in otherwords, I could generate an <INPUT> named "first" who's max
length was 50, annother called "last" with a maxlength of 80, and a
<TEXTAREA> named "bio" for the medium text, etc etc.


sorry i can't describe it any better!!


i guess programs like phpMyAdmin achieve this, but i'd rather see a
small code snippet and LEARN rather than dig through 1000's of lines of
phpMyAdmin code :)


thanks,

justin french




Take a look at that:
http://www.mysql.com/doc/S/H/SHOW.html
and
http://www.mysql.com/doc/D/E/DESCRIBE.html

I fear you have to parse necessary information out of a statment like this:
$result = mysql_query("DESCRIBE yourTable");
$tabelDesc = mysql_fetch_array($result);

I didn't spend any time checking it but I think it could work.
Good luck!

PS: if you make progress with that I was also interested in informations
about this kind of stuff - please send a mail :)

I hope someone has time to help with a regular expression?

I need a regex that will replace get variables, regardless of there location
in a URL, and if the get var does not exist I hope that it will create the
get var in the URL.  Some examples


$REQUEST_URI can look like this "value1":

filename.phtml?test=value1
filename.phtml?another=value&test=value1
filename.phtml
filename.phtml?another=value

The variable $test will either exist preceded by "?" "&" or not at all.

I would like to take a value pair, put it into a function with $REQUEST_URI
and the have a new $REQUEST_URI returned with either the value replaced or
added.

Replacing/adding "value2"

filename.phtml?test=value2
filename.phtml?another=value&test=value2
filename.phtml?test=value2
filename.phtml?another=value&test=value2

The variable located by matching ?test &test or adding it if it does not
exist, with a "?" or a "&"

I currently have a function:

replace_get_var_value($string, $var, $new_value){
        return eregi_replace("&$var=([a-z0-9\+]+)", "&$var=$new_value", $string);
}

But it won't work if the value does not exist, or if the value is the first
variable in the set within $REQUEST_URI.

Example ($REQUEST_URI that will not work with this function)
filename.phml?another=value
filename.phml?var=old_value
filename.phml

The only $REQUEST_URI that this will work with is
filename.phtml?another=value&var=old_value

I hope my description makes sense.  Thanks for any help!

Well, I think I found the solution.  I changed the regex a bit, and added a
condition.  This should work, but if anyone has a better idea please let me
know.


function replace_get_var_value($string, $var, $new_value){
         // substitute value
        $buffer = eregi_replace("([?|&]{1})$var=([a-z0-9\+]+)",
"\\1$var=$new_value", $string);
         // value not found then add it to the REQUEST_URI
        if($buffer==$string){
                if(strchr("?", $buffer)){
                        $buffer = $buffer."&$var=$new_value";
                }else{
                        $buffer = $buffer."?$var=$new_value";
                }
        }
        return $buffer;
}

echo replace_get_var_value($REQUEST_URI, "test", "value2");

Thanks!

Hello,

Could be a simple problem, using PHP4 on a Linux/Unix Cobalt RaQ4 server.  I
have been using it fine, but the mail() function wont send mail, even with
the most basic content and lack of headers.

Can anyone offer any advise on what could be the problem, or any scripts I
can use to test the mail() function that will return nice errors to let me
know what's going wrong?

I have tried searching for help, but I have found nothing specific.

Aplogies for such a simple question(?) but I just cant get it to send mail!

Thanks.

Hi everybody!

I'm new in the list.
I'll help anybody if I can  =)

by now I have a little trouble  ;-)

I have to create a php page where users can upload many files
the idea is that users could select many files by holding down
the shift key... with this I can avoid to put many input tags in my page.
When I use an <input type=file ....> and pass to the next page
a temporary file name ("/var/temp/phpGH65YT") is created.. 
but if I try to use another way to send the file name.. this temp file name is not 
created.
and I just get an "error: I cannot open the file name test.txt in 
/var/html/pages/test.php for reading"

an alternative is in fact of I know the file names that users must upload.
I could ask them for the path and then I'd show a list of files to upload
and users only will have to click on one button.



is it possible to make more easy the file uploading for users?
I mean... is it possible to upload many files without to choose one by one within a 
html page
with many input tags?
 
ooh yes.. I cannot use zipped files not even a ftp connection
