Creating queries

Thread began 2/18/2020 7:38 pm by balexander389215 | Last modified 3/16/2020 12:18 pm by balexander389215 | 288 views | 20 replies


i am still trying to figure out how to allow users to select the State to create the query. Doing a lot of research I can't find a way to include a variable from the form submit in the Recordset that would allow for a dynamic query. Perhaps it would work better if did the the query in PHP rather than a Record set. I created a simple only allowing for a state dropdown.

<div id="RichRegistration_NewFromBlank_Default_ProgressWrapper">
<form class="NewFromBlank_Default" id="RichRegistration_NewFromBlank_Default" name="RichRegistration_NewFromBlank_Default" method="post" action="">
WebAssist CSS Form Builder - Form v1
CC: Registration
CP: Rich Registration
TC: <New From Blank>
TP: Default
<fieldset class="NewFromBlank_Default" id="Registration">
<legend class="groupHeader"></legend> <span class="buttonFieldGroup" >
<input class="formButton" name="RichRegistration_submit" type="submit" id="RichRegistration_submit" value="Enter" undefined title="Please enter a value">
<span class="fieldsetDescription"> </span>
<div class="lineGroup">
<label for="State" class="sublabel" > State:</label>
<select class="formMenufield_Medium" name="State" id="State" rel="<?php echo((isset($_GET["invalid"])?ValidatedField("state","State"):"")); ?>"undefined title="Please enter a value">
<option value="" <?php if (!(strcmp("", (isset($_GET["invalid"])?ValidatedField("state","State"):"")))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>>Select a State</option>
<option value=" " <?php if (!(strcmp(" ", (isset($_GET["invalid"])?ValidatedField("state","State"):"")))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>>N/A</option>
<option value="AL" <?php


<option value="WI" <?php if (!(strcmp("WI", (isset($_GET["invalid"])?ValidatedField("state","State"):"")))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>>Wisconsin</option>
<option value="WY" <?php if (!(strcmp("WY", (isset($_GET["invalid"])?ValidatedField("state","State"):"")))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>>Wyoming</option>

<div id="RichRegistration_NewFromBlank_Default_ProgressMessageWrapper" class="blockUIOverlay" style="display:none;">
<script type="text/javascript">
WADFP_SetProgressToForm('RichRegistration_NewFromBlank_Default', 'RichRegistration_NewFromBlank_Default_ProgressMessageWrapper', WADFP_Theme_Options['BigSpin:CaboSunset']);
<div id="RichRegistration_NewFromBlank_Default_ProgressMessage" >
<p style="margin:10px; padding:5px;" ><img src="webassist/progress_bar/images/cabo-largespin.gif" alt="" title="" style="vertical-align:middle;" />&nbsp;&nbsp;Please wait</p>

Whether it is done in PHP or the record set I have the same question, what do I put in the select statement that would allow the query to use the State selected from form submit?

$sql = "SELECT * FROM venue WHERE Country = 'USA' and state = (what do I put in here that would indicate the state selected from submit from the form?) ORDER BY City ASC limit $row,".$rowperpage;
