HELP - Big Problem with Form

HELP - Big Problem with Form

I used data assist to create admin pages for my ecart store where an admin can add a new product.

My digital goods and physical goods are separated in the download centre based on whether the product location field is NULL (NON DIGITAL) or a server file name (DIGITAL).

To make it easy, I use the same form to allow users to add new physical and digital products.
My form comprises of all the needed fields, name, price stock etc..
And at the bottom is a file field which is used to upload a digital good. If the new product is not digital, they do not use it.

However my issue arises when the new product is not digital.

Even when the file field is not used it forces a blank value in the database and dose not allow a NULL field.

I have already set the database table filed default value to Null, but Digital file pro will not allow the database to be NULL it just forces a blank value in this field.

How can I get around this without having to create two separate forms? One for physical and another for digital.

Thank you

Just offering a suggestion... Make it a toggle instead of NULL. Make the your field read as follows;

0 = NON DIGITAL
1 = DIGITAL

That way you should have better control over your input.

toms suggestion is correct, you should have a separate field for product type that stores 1 or 0, use a checkbox on your form to set the product type

Thanks for the reply.

I know what you mean, but I would need to change complex .sql in my download centre in order to make that work. Because currently it filters weather the item has a value in the product location field or is NULL.

I was hoping I could just make the file field allow a NULL value to be created in the database.

It works for my image uploads. I think that is because they are set up to only allow web images.

However I would of thought that this should not be that hard to do?

Ok, I have decided to use this method.

However,

Could you tell me how to disable the field unless the checkbox is selected?


Thank you.

if you insist on only using the one file field, then adjust the SQL to use NULL OR ""

WHERE (columnName != NULL OR columnName != "")

Thank you.

Unfortunately I am getting errors. I added the code but Could you please tell me what is wrong with this statement.

SELECT siteezyecorders.*, siteezyecorderdetails.*, siteezyecproducts.*
FROM siteezyecorders INNER JOIN siteezyecorderdetails on siteezyecorders.OrderID = siteezyecorderdetails.DetailOrderID INNER JOIN siteezyecproducts on siteezyecorderdetails.DetailProductID = siteezyecproducts.ProductID
WHERE siteezyecorders.OrderUserID = paramUserID AND siteezyecproducts.ProductLocation IS NOT NULL OR siteezyecproducts.ProductLocation != ""
GROUP BY siteezyecproducts.ProductLocation

Thank you.

I don't think you need the following anymore...

AND siteezyecproducts.ProductLocation IS NOT NULL OR siteezyecproducts.ProductLocation != ""

Thanks for the reply.

Actually this is from my download centre.

The reason I need this code is to stop physical goods from appearing as digital downloads.

That is why I need the value to either be filtered as NULL or "".

Ok I have tried it.

I adjusted the code, I do not get any errors, however I am still getting physical Products appearing if they are not NULL and are just blank example ''

Here is my code again:

SELECT siteezyecorders.*, siteezyecorderdetails.*, siteezyecproducts.*
FROM siteezyecorders INNER JOIN siteezyecorderdetails on siteezyecorders.OrderID = siteezyecorderdetails.DetailOrderID INNER JOIN siteezyecproducts on siteezyecorderdetails.DetailProductID = siteezyecproducts.ProductID
WHERE siteezyecorders.OrderUserID = paramUserID AND (siteezyecproducts.ProductLocation IS NOT NULL OR siteezyecproducts.ProductLocation != '')
GROUP BY siteezyecproducts.ProductLocation

Thank you.
