User-Selected DB Search

User-Selected DB Search

Jason:

Is there a WA Extension to create search forms that allow users to obtain results according to criteria they have selected from a determined set of choices?

For example: a user who wants to browse through the club member profiles according to gender, age, nationality, etc. I tried using a DW extension for this purpose before, but I didn't like the way it looked.

The ideal results I'm looking for would be a gallery type of page with a sidebar div showing the thumbs of the members, that when the users click on any of the thumbs they get a detailed profile on the content div right beside it.

Does WA have an extension that can help me do that? I have Datassist and Universal email already working in DW5.

Thank you for your attention.

The DataAssist extension can help you with this, use the wizard to create a set of Search, results and detail pages.

the pages created may not look exactly as you want them to, but you can edit the look of them after the wizard creates the code.

I've been having some good results following the instructions given in your "Solution Recipes" for DataAssist. The look I'm getting is not yet exactly the one I want, but I'm sure I can fix it. The only issue I haven't been able to resolve pertains to displaying images.

What extra code do I have to enter in order to display photos drawn from the DB in the results page ? I have my photos in a separate directory and I have the reference to them in the appropriate column in the DB.

How can I make the DA Wizard display photos in the results page?

Thank you for your attention.
