Update Multiple Records binding

Hi folks

I'm having trouble with the Update Multiple Records SB in Data Bridge.
I can't get the existing content to appear in the field before the update.
I've tried binding the fields to:
'Repeated Field: fieldname' from the form element
OR
The recordset field

If I enter new values here, the database record is updated, checking with phpMyAdmin.

How can I get the fields to be prepopulated with the existing values?

It would be nice to have an updated tutorial for this server behavior.

Cheers
Dave

Here's a copy of the page code attached. I can't give you the link as it's part of the admin backend. Basically lists images with text caption and a numerical sort code for each image to be updated. Also attached a screenshot of the page.

you should be using the bindings from the rsCaseImage recordset for the form element values, for example the image text text area should be:

php:
<textarea name="imagetext_<?php echo $RepeatSelectionCounter_1?>" cols="40" rows="5" id="imagetext_<?php echo $RepeatSelectionCounter_1?>"><?php echo $row_rsCaseImage['imagetext']; ?></textarea>

Thanks Jason. That makes sense! I was getting confused with the bindings in the SB which is used for the POST. Now the fields are prepopulated with the current values, change the values then submit - all OK. There is no redirection so the page loads again with the fresh values. If I resubmit with new values, the older ones are displayed. Strange things happening here! If I resubmit without changing anything it alternates between old & new values.

Perhaps there should be a redirect to another page after submission.

  If I resubmit without changing anything it alternates between old & new values.  


this is because of code order.

in your page, there is the recordset first, then the update behavior. What happens is the recordset queries the database to return the values, it then updates the database, and then displays the data on the page. Since the recordset was created before the update tok place, the information in the recordset is the original information

  Perhaps there should be a redirect to another page after submission.  


you can edit the update behavior to redirect to another page after the update occurs.

Thanks a lot Jason - moving the Update SB above the recordset did the trick. Works perfectly. No need to redirect as I prefer to check that all the image captions & the sort order index are correct after submission without moving to another page.
