That does not answer my question, or if it does then I do not understand what it is saying.
First of all, what is meant by
"Pass a url parameter in your failed redirect for your server validations like: pagename?valid=false"
In my insert page, there is no redirect anywhere other than to itself on failure or on success to a page that displays the data, so why would I need one in an edit page?
I am using existing data to fill out my form initially from a stored recordset, a typical field opening value being :"<?php echo $row_eventset['club_organiser']; ?>" This comes from the field being bound to the recordset value, in this case 'club_organiser'.
Following the other thread, which states:
<?php echo(isset($_GET['valid'])?ValidatedField("page","field"):"yourdefault"); ?>
How do I translate this for my field value?
I can see that "yourdefault" could be "$row_eventset['club_organiser']"
What goes in ($_GET['valid'])?ValidatedField("page","field")?
Where does "page" come into the argument? Does this refer to a page that the form re-directs to after a successful update. If the form redirects to itself, is this required?
All in all, it makes little sense, and these server behaviours are supposed to be for beginners like me to use.
Can you give additional information?
