show if db coupon code has expired in ecart

show if db coupon code has expired in ecart

Hello,
Attempting to do a show if based on database coupon codes. Each code has an expire date. All is working in the cart. My goal is to have this message show if they put in an expired coupon: Your coupon has expired.
So far I have this:
<?php if ($row_rsCoupondb['expDate'] > 0) { // Show if recordset empty ?>
<div class = "couponmsg">Coupon Code <?php echo $row_rsCoupondb['couponCode']; ?> expires, on <?php echo $row_rsCoupondb['expDate']; ?>.
This gives customer coupon expiration info when they enter the code and submit it.

I tried this code hoping it would give the message if the entered coupon is expires, but I dreamweaver is telling me my code is in error. I took the code after the first part from the cart function php page where the discount rules are. Thought that made sense, but it is in error:
<?php if ($totalRows_rsCoupondb > 0) && (isset($_SESSION['expDate'])) && (time() <= strtotime($_SESSION['expDate'])) { // Show if recordset not empty ?>
Your coupon has expired
<?php } // Show if recordset not empty ?>

Is this possible to do?
Thank you,
K

the code looks correct. Does it return an error in the browser? sometimes Dreamweaver can report an error in the code when there is none. the true test is the browser.

Hi Jason,
Are you referring to this code:
<?php if ($totalRows_rsCoupondb > 0) && (isset($_SESSION['expDate'])) && (time() <= strtotime($_SESSION['expDate'])) { // Show if recordset not empty ?>
Your coupon has expired
<?php } // Show if recordset not empty ?>

This is the cart message when I test it on local server:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_BOOLEAN_AND in /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/megan_isaacs_cms/cart.php on line 293

It is referring to the above code.
Thank you,
K

it always helps to have the error message to refer to.

try changing this line:

php:
<?php if ($totalRows_rsCoupondb 0) && (isset($_SESSION['expDate'])) && (time() <= strtotime($_SESSION['expDate'])) { //




to:

php:
<?php if (($totalRows_rsCoupondb 0) && (isset($_SESSION['expDate'])) && (time() <= strtotime($_SESSION['expDate']))) { //

Hi Jason,
The extra ) made it work. I just needed to change the:
&& (time() <= strtotime($_SESSION['expDate']))) { //
to >= so that it picked up the expired dates.
So simple.
Thank you for your help,
K
