repeating region in result.php

repeating region in result.php

I am using DataAssist to generate the result.php. I want to make a repeating region of the two lists. I also want the second list to show only if the recordset is even. I tried the EVEN condition for the second LI tag using SHOW REGION IF RECORDSET IS EMPTY then changed the condition
if ($totalRows_rsProducts == % 2 == 0)
it seems to work only if I do not have a repeating region for the both LI items.
The following is the HTML of the result page. I want the two lists to be in one row. Notice the second list has a border to separate both lists.

<ul id="search-width" class="items">
<li>
<a><img src=""/></a><br/>
<span> product name</span><br/>
<strong> productPrice</strong><br/>
<span> SKU </span><br/>
<span>ProductStock?></span><br/>
</li>
<li style="border-left:3px solid #cccccc;">
<a><img src=""/></a><br/>
<span> product name</span><br/>
<strong> productPrice</strong><br/>
<span> SKU </span><br/>
<span>ProductStock?></span><br/>
</li>
</ul>

I tried to make a the two LI tags to be repeating region and SHOW 10 RECORDS AT A TIME.
But I get 20 records.
Making the first LI tag a repeating region results in empty second LI.
Could you please suggest on this?

So do you have two recordsets that you are using for these repeat regions? I think you should have the repeat regions setup like this:

php:
<ul id="search-width" class="items">


<?php repeat region one start ?>
  <li>
  <a><img  src=""/></a><br/>
  <span> product name</span><br/>
  <strong> productPrice</strong><br/>
  <span> SKU </span><br/>
  <span>ProductStock?></span><br/>
  </li>
<?php repeat region one end ?>

<?php check for rows being even?>
<?php repeat region two start ?>
<li style="border-left:3px solid #cccccc;">
<a><img  src=""/></a><br/>
<span> product name</span><br/>
<strong> productPrice</strong><br/>
<span> SKU </span><br/>
<span>ProductStock?></span><br/>
</li>
<?php repeat region two end ?>
<?php end check 
for rows being even?>

</ul>



This will result in a single unordered list with two sets of entries. The first set will display the total number of records that you specify in the first repeat region. The second will display the total number of rows specified in the second repeat region.

Eric,

I have only one recordset rsProducts since the search variable is only advanced text search. I followed the video in webAssist how to generate search and result pages. Do I need two recordsets?
I just need to present the search results horizontally and vertically, two search results per row.
From what I understand repeating regions of dreamweaver is uni-directional. I read about DataAssist Repeat Selection. But it is not clear for me how to use it in my case.

You should not be using an unordered list if you want to display the results side by side two at a time.

You should first add in a table with a single row in it. In the <td> add the bindings for the results as you want to see here. Once you have it like that the next thing to do is to use the repeat region around this row to make is show all of the records.

This is where you would apply the repeat selection server behavior from DataAssist. You will select the <td></td> that your bindings are in and apply the server behaviors > DataAssist > repeat selection. In this server behavior specify 2 repetitions.

This should create a results layout that has records repeating two per row until all the records show. Let us know if you have any specific questions about this or if you run into any problems.

Thanks Eric. it works great with tables. One question though. is it possible to have some exceptions in the repeating row? I am thinking to create right borders for each <td> to separate the products. All the <td> could have right borders except the last <td>. What php and how to do it?

Thanks once again.

If you know the css that you would like to apply then you need to determine what condition to set this styling. You can use php code to set it for you like this:

<?php echo (<if your condition is true>)?"style='<your css here>;'":"" ?>

This says, if the condition is true, print the style info, otherwise print nothing. You just need to determine what the condition is and the style you wan to apply.
