Dynamic Form Menu

Hi Jason,

This is a bare-bones page to test the code on before I add a cart to my product pages.
I'm also trying to figure out how to add the individual sizes and prices into the repeating section underneath the item description, but it won't allow "nesting".

<?php require_once('Connections/connSpectrum.php'); ?>
if (!function_exists("GetSQLValueString")) {
function GetSQLValueString($theValue, $theType, $theDefinedValue = "", $theNotDefinedValue = "")
if (PHP_VERSION < 6) {
$theValue = get_magic_quotes_gpc() ? stripslashes($theValue) : $theValue;

$theValue = function_exists("mysql_real_escape_string") ? mysql_real_escape_string($theValue) : mysql_escape_string($theValue);

switch ($theType) {
case "text":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
case "long":
case "int":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? intval($theValue) : "NULL";
case "double":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? doubleval($theValue) : "NULL";
case "date":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
case "defined":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? $theDefinedValue : $theNotDefinedValue;
return $theValue;

mysql_select_db($database_connSpectrum, $connSpectrum);
$query_rsItems = "SELECT ItemID, ItemCatID, ItemName, ItemDesc, ItemSKU, ItemImage, FROM items ORDER BY ItemID ASC";
$rsItems = mysql_query($query_rsItems, $connSpectrum) or die(mysql_error());
$row_rsItems = mysql_fetch_assoc($rsItems);
$totalRows_rsItems = mysql_num_rows($rsItems);

$varItem_rsSizes = "1";
if (isset($row_rsItems['ItemID'])) {
$varItem_rsSizes = $row_rsItems['ItemID'];
mysql_select_db($database_connSpectrum, $connSpectrum);
$query_rsSizes = sprintf("SELECT items.ItemID, options.OptionID, options.Option, options.OptionPrice, options.OptionWeight FROM items LEFT OUTER JOIN itemoptions ON items.ItemID = itemoptions.ItemID INNER JOIN options ON itemoptions.OptionID = options.OptionID WHERE items.ItemID = %s", GetSQLValueString($varItem_rsSizes, "int"));
$rsSizes = mysql_query($query_rsSizes, $connSpectrum) or die(mysql_error());
$row_rsSizes = mysql_fetch_assoc($rsSizes);
$totalRows_rsSizes = mysql_num_rows($rsSizes);
