Show All Results Button

Before you send me off to all of the other posts within the forum for this topic, I must let you know that I have researched (and tried unsuccessfully) to implement most of these solutions.

I believe that my problem results from the order in which I created my files. Below are the steps that I used.

1.Used Data Assist Wizard to create all files (except email_search.php and email_insert.php) for data that is stored in a MySQL database of emails that are entered into the contact form. The data collection works as expected.

2. I then decided to add search capabilities and used Data Assist Search Wizard. Everything is working as expected all the way from search, results, update, edit, delete functionality. Perfect!

MY PROBLEM: I cannot figure out how to just "Show All" records. The only time it works is when I first navigate to the email_results.php page prior to entering any search criteria. After that, navigating to email_results.php page (either via link or manually) returns the previous search results.

I tried the following Solutions:

1. I am sure it has something to do with the session variables on the email_results.php page and I saw on one post that this could be removed but then the pagination option would be lost. I do not want that.

2. I also saw the option for changing the default WHERE Clause to 0=0 in the Data Assist Search Behavior of the email_results.php page but that did not work.

3. There was also a solution for adding a link on the email_results.php page like this
<a href="email_Results.php?Search_x=0" target="_top">Show All</a> but that did not work. I presume it is because my trigger in the Data Assist Search Behavior looks like this
isset($_POST["WADbSearch2"])) && ($_POST["WADbSearch2"] I even tried replacing Search_x=0 to WADBSearch2=0 in the link above.

I am hoping to find a simple solution without having to recreate all of my pages as I have all of the other functionality of the pages working correctly.

Thanks in advance for your help.

ok, on the results page, create the following link:

<a href="email_Results.php?show=all">Show All</a>

then add this code at line 1:


if(!session_id()) session_start();
$_GET['show']) && $_GET['show'] == "all") {

Jason My Man!!!!

Again you save the day!!! That worked perfectly.

If it is easy enough to explain, why was I encountering that issue? Was it the way/order I created my pages? I presume so, since there was a different trigger in my WA Search Behavior. I would like to know so that I can avoid this issue in the future.

Thanks again.

No, it's not the order the pages where created.

for pagination to work properly, the search criteria are stored in a session. For this page, the session is:

the code i gave you just uses a querystring var to trigger unsetting that session:
if(isset($_GET['show']) && $_GET['show'] == "all") {

Got it. I will be saving that code to my Snippely Air Application. I am sure it will come in handy down the road. Thanks a million!

the only thing you will need to change is the name of the ssession to unset.

look for this code on the results page to determine the session name:

//save the query in a session variable

  if (1 == 1) {

so you can find what tot change it to.
