Problem Extracing E-Mail Addresss from Recordset

Problem Extracing E-Mail Addresss from Recordset

Using UE as part of CSS Form Builder 2.0.

In the setup i have the following dynamic TO address:

php:
<?php echo $row_teachers['teacherEmail']; ?>



This is what the wizard places in the PHP code in the <head> of the file:

php:
$RecipArray[$CurIndex ][] = "".$row_teachers['teacherEmail']  ."";



I also check to see that the e-mail address is "extractable" by including this code in the body of the page:

php:
<?php echo $row_teachers['teacherEmail']; ?>



This displays the e-mail address properly.

The problem is at runtime -- there is no e-mail generated. However if I hard-code an e-mail address in the RecipArray statement it works fine.

The space in the RecipArray before the bracket bothers me -- but it's no problem for the hard-coded e-mail address.

Help??

Thanks,

Mike

How is the recordset configured?

Is it set to filter on anything?

Is the email set to send on post.

My guess is that the recordset is set to filter on URL variable which exists when the page opens, but is not passed as part of the form action, so when the form posts, the recordset is now empty.

It would be helpful to have the entire page to see the code in context instead of the code snippets, the snippets never tell the whole story.

Page attached.

I altered the file slightly -- added a hidden form element that should have passed the teacherEmail to the form info (line 370), changed the assignment of the mailto address to that element. Still no joy. . .

I'm sure it's something simple -- be gentle!!

Thanks,

Mike

so you have 2 recordsets on the page.

the first Books recordset is set to filter on the recID querystring variable, the second recordset is set to filter on a column from the first recordset.


like I said initially:

this is indeed the case.

edit the forms action so it passes the recID querystring variable on submitting the form

change:

php:
<form class="NewFromBlank_Default" id="SimpleContact_NewFromBlank_Default" name="SimpleContact_NewFromBlank_Default" method="post"  action="<?php echo $_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]; ?>">



to:

php:
<form class="NewFromBlank_Default" id="SimpleContact_NewFromBlank_Default" name="SimpleContact_NewFromBlank_Default" method="post"  action="<?php echo htmlspecialchars($_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]); ?><?php echo (isset($_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]) && $_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"] != "")?"?".htmlspecialchars($_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]):""?>">

Made the change -- still no e-mail. . .

Jason -- does your form code pass the recID string? teacherEmail is not directly referenced from the recID. That is why I filtered the $row_teachers recordset with the recID. That way the $row_teachers recordset contains only the record for the teacher that added the book id'ed by the recID.
