PHP MYSQL Form - Multiple Select List

Thread began 12/30/2009 2:51 pm by karen.marley367377 | Last modified 5/03/2011 4:03 pm by karen.marley367377 | 22237 views | 29 replies


Holding Values for a Multiple List on an Update form

Hi Eric,

Apologies I cannot get this to work as am unsure how to do this - the error message I get with the multiple select form is :

Warning in_array []: Wrong datatype for second argument on line 234 >Assembly and Leisure

When an option or options from the list - the results page returns a value of Array. Then if the update form is accessed again, and the multiple select list is not changed by the user. The word Array disappears from the results page (i.e. and from the database)

I know it is to do with where I have put the code you kindly provided but am stuck.

This is the list option:
<select name="PropertyType[]" size="6" multiple="multiple" id="PropertyType[]" title="<?php echo $row_WADAproperties['PropertyType']; ?>">
do {
?><option value="<?php echo $row_rspropertytypes['PropertyType']?>"<?php if (!(in_array($row_rspropertytypes['PropertyType'], $row_WADAproperties['PropertyType']))) {"selected='selected'";} ?>><?php echo $row_rspropertytypes['PropertyType']?></option>
} while ($row_rspropertytypes = mysql_fetch_assoc($rspropertytypes));
$rows = mysql_num_rows($rspropertytypes);
if($rows > 0) {
mysql_data_seek($rspropertytypes, 0);
$row_rspropertytypes = mysql_fetch_assoc($rspropertytypes);
And this is the explode code is on the last line of the following:
$WA_table = "properties";
$WA_redirectURL = "properties_Results.php";
$WA_keepQueryString = false;
$WA_indexField = "MainPropertiesID";
$WA_fieldNamesStr = "SLNNumberID|FirstName|LastName|Company|PropertyType|Assembly|HealthCare|Office|SaleORLease|RegionName|Address1|Address2|Address3|City|County|PostCode|Country|ThumbPath|Thumb|PicturePath|Picture|AgentLogo|PropertyDetails|Size|Sep|SizeMax|SizeType|shortDescription|longdescription|CURR|PriceDetails|RentalPeriod|Price|Status";
$WA_fieldValuesStr = "".((isset($_POST["SLNNumberID"]))?$_POST["SLNNumberID"]:"") ."" . "|" . "".$row_WADAproperties['FirstName'] ."" . "|" . "".$row_WADAproperties['LastName'] ."" . "|" . "".$row_WADAproperties['Company'] ."" . "|" . "".((isset($_POST["PropertyType"]))?explode(", ", $_POST["PropertyType"]):"")
