RE: [PHP] Function call from a hyperlink

2001-07-11 Thread Shrout, Ryan

Why not just pass a variable: a href=file.php?function

and then in the PHP file do:

if ($function) {
function();
}

Hi,

Does someone know how I can call a function in a PHP script using a
hyperlink with
A HREF=.text/A

The function is in the same PHP script as the link.


Many thanks,

Geer

you can't.

you have to write handler code to read in the
information being passed to the script and
properly execute a function.

(if anyone could arbitrarily execute any function
they wanted just by passing in the function name,
havoc would be wreaked on PHP programs everywhere :)

another way is to do eval () on $function but that kinda stuff is really bad
for security.  Also bad to get carried away with making one file that passes
tons of different function names so your whole website's in one file :)
There should be some criminal punishment for doing that.

RE: [PHP] Function call from a hyperlink

2001-07-11 Thread scott [gts]

i agree that putting it all into one file is
usually bad form, but for small sites that dont
change much, it's usually OK to do something like:

file.php?page=Main
file.php?page=News
file.php?page=Contact


anything above 5-10 pages probably requires a
separate-page-per-section or fusebox-style design...
