DA error when inserting a $_SESSION value

DA error when inserting a $_SESSION value

Hello,
Just an FYI and hopefully future fix... IF you are INSERTing a value that is from a session, DA wraps the value in quote marks when using the Insert Record Wizard.

For instance, if there is a session value you want to use in the Insert action and you entered is such as :
$_SESSION['keyName']

the wizard sets the insert code as follows:
"|" . "$_SESSION['keyName'] ". "|"

This condition creates an error as well as fails to show the value when you return to the Insert via the wizard.

Manually correcting the value to:
"|" . $_SESSION['keyName'] . "|"

solves the problem and allows a proper Insert

Hopefully in future versions this will work so as to allow the Session key to be inserted in the Wizard.

any plain text entered in to the value box is treated as plain text

when entering dynamic php data into the value box, you need to enter it using php tags:
<?php echo $_SESSION['keyName']; ?>

ok, That's good to know... You could also create a conditional case where IF $ is encountered in the first character location, treat as variable rather than text.

It would be a nice enhancement to DA.

Thanks for the reply Jason.

but what if you wanted to enter a price in the field:
$100000


really, dynamic data is handled through the Dreamweaver bindings panel.

click the lightning bolt to get the bindings panel and select the dynamic binding you wish to use.

No, worries,

I'm not going to delete the thread, but rename it instead.
