use DataAssist to create a dynamic radio group?

use DataAssist to create a dynamic radio group?

Can DataAssist be used to create a dynamic radio group, using the values from a MySQL table? I thought I could create a dynamic search using DataAssist and choosing radio group, but it only inserted static values, nothing from the database. This is what I have so far and it's not working:

<form action="" method="POST" name="form1" id="form1">
<?php do { ?>
<input name="fruitID" type="radio" value="<?php echo $row_getFruit['fruitID']; ?>" />
<?php echo $row_getFruit['fruitName']; ?><br />
<?php } while ($row_getFruit = mysql_fetch_assoc($getFruit)); ?>
</form>

What have I done wrong?

This looks to be a dynamic radio group to me. It is within a loop that is based on a recordset and that same recordset is referenced for the value:

$row_getFruit

So long as this recordset has values it should create the options for you. What are you experiencing?

Finally got it to work. But why doesn't DataAssist search create dynamic radio groups? I tried using it, and all I got was static radio buttons, which I would have needed to populate manually.

<form action="sresults.php" method="post" name="sform" id="sform">
<table width="600" border="0" cellpadding="5" cellspacing="0" bordercolor="#ffffcc">
<tr>
<td width="147" valign="top"><div align="right">Select your Fruit</div></td>
<td width="427" valign="top">
<div align="left">
<?php do { ?>
<input name="fruitID" type="radio" value="<?php echo $row_getFruit['fruitID']?>" />
<?php echo $row_getFruit['fruitName']; ?><br />
<?php
} while ($row_getFruit = mysql_fetch_assoc($getFruit));
$rows = mysql_num_rows($getFruit);
if($rows > 0) {
mysql_data_seek($getFruit, 0);
$row_getFruit = mysql_fetch_assoc($getFruit);
}
?>
</div></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td valign="top"><div align="left"></div></td>
<td valign="top">
<div align="left">
<input name="submit" type="submit" value="submit" />
</div></td>
</tr>
</table>
</form>

DataAssist will create the search form for you with the inputs you specify but this is as far as the wizard takes it. You need to craft the recordsets to populate these inputs on the search form if you want them to be dynamic.
