If statement

If statement

Hi,

Im having trouble trying to use the if statements to get certain parts of my page to show or not depending on certain variables. I know how to add a show region depending on if a recordset is empty, but i dont necessarily want it to be based on whether a recordset is empty or not.

I am using the data assist start up database so all the field names will be as expected. When trying to hide a test div by using an if statement it automatically generates

<?php if ($totalRows_WADAproducts == 0) { // Show if recordset empty ?>

What i wanted to do was change it so that if the name of a record was set to a certain value, then it would show a certain region. ie if the value of column 'ProductName' was set to 'Test' then show....

Can you give me any help on how i would build this?

use the following if statement:

php:
<?php if($row_WADAProducts["ProductName"] == "Test") { ?>

Do Something here
<?php ?>




there can be gotcha's with this though:
PHP is a case sensitive language, so if the ProductName value is "test" or "TeSt", this if statement will fail. you can use the php strtolower() function to overcome this
function.strtolower.php

php:
<?php if(strtolower($row_WADAProducts["ProductName"]) == strtolower("Test")) { ?>

Do Something here
<?php ?>

Thanks

I managed to figure it out not long after i posted it actually, I think i was having problems because since i wasnt sure how to use it, i started by putting a show condition in by using the server behaviour panel and choosing show if recordset is empty, but after i edited it, it kept wondering why it didnt have a recordset to compare to, so i just wrote it outright and it worked.

If i wanted to measure if a value was between a certain range, say for example an ID that was either 6 or 7 would that be:

<?php if ($row_WADAproducts["ProductID"] > 5) AND ($row_WADAproducts["ProductID"] < 8) { ?>
do stuff
<?php } ?>

or is there another method to examine values within a certain range?

On a slightly changed note, I have a select box which will appear in one of these if statements, it is part of a product option, but its values are yes/no, is it possible to change the option to a checkbox instead? when inserting the product options it only has hidden/text field/select menu. I didnt want to start messing with it incase i messed up the value it sends out on ordering

thanks in advance

yes, you can change the select list to a checkbox as long as the checkbox has the same name as the select list did.
