Show image if NULL and Category = 1

Show image if NULL and Category = 1

I have a recordset which shows an image. I have surrounded the code with a Show if Not Null statement meaning that I dont have a broken image showing if nothing has been displayed.

I would now like to write a statement that will show a specific image if the column is empty however the image will be different depending on the category that the article belongs too.

As an example

If image field not null show image

if image field is null and category = 1 show image A
if image field is null and category = 2 show image B
if image field is null and category = 3 show image C
if image field is null and category = 4 show image D

I was thinking of:

<?php if($row_Recordset1['newsPhoto'] != "") { ?>
<img src="../images/<?php echo $row_Recordset1['newsPhoto']; ?>" alt="<?php echo $row_Recordset1['newsTitle']; ?>" width="648" height="100" class="img-inside"/>
<?php } ?>

<?php if($row_Recordset1['newsPhoto'] = "") && ($row_Recordset1['newscat'] =1) { ?>
<img src="imageA.jpg" />
<?php } ?>

<?php if($row_Recordset1['newsPhoto'] = "") && ($row_Recordset1['newscat'] =2) { ?>
<img src="imageB.jpg" />
<?php } ?>


Would this work?

Is there a better way?

Thanks

Yes, that would work, The only other way to do this would be a nested if on empty image, for example:

<?php if($row_Recordset1['newsPhoto'] = "") { ?>
<?php if($row_Recordset1['newscat'] =1) { ?>
<img src="imageA.jpg" />
<?php } else if($row_Recordset1['newscat'] =2) { ?>
<img src="imageB.jpg" />
<?php } ?>
<?php } ?>

Hi Jason

I have tried your nested option and found that images were displayed for a topic where no image had been uploaded, however when an image had been uploaded it displayed both that image and also the stock image.

I have tried my solution but this time not image is shown where its not uploaded.

The code that I used was;

Your Suggestion:
<?php if($row_Recordset1['newsPhoto'] != "") { ?>
<img src="../images/<?php echo $row_Recordset1['newsPhoto']; ?>" alt="<?php echo $row_Recordset1['newsTitle']; ?>" width="648" height="100" class="img-inside"/>
<?php } ?>
<?php if ($row_Recordset1['newsCat']=1){?>
<img src="../images/news.jpg" alt="<?php echo $row_Recordset1['newsTitle']; ?>" class="img-inside"/>
<?php } elseif ($row_Recordset1['newsCat']=2){?>
<img src="../images/PressRelease.jpg" alt="<?php echo $row_Recordset1['newsTitle']; ?>" class="img-inside"/>
<?php } elseif ($row_Recordset1['newsCat']=3){?>
<img src="../images/callouts.jpg" alt="<?php echo $row_Recordset1['newsTitle']; ?>" class="img-inside"/>
<?php } elseif ($row_Recordset1['newsCat']=4){?>
<img src="../images/events.jpg" alt="<?php echo $row_Recordset1['newsTitle']; ?>" class="img-inside"/>
<?php } ?>

My suggestion:
<?php if($row_Recordset1['newsPhoto'] != "") { ?>
<img src="../images/<?php echo $row_Recordset1['newsPhoto']; ?>" alt="<?php echo $row_Recordset1['newsTitle']; ?>" width="648" height="100" class="img-inside"/>
<?php } ?>
<?php if($row_Recordset1['newsPhoto'] =NULL && ($row_Recordset1['newsCat'] =1)) { ?>
<img src="../images/news.jpg" alt="<?php echo $row_Recordset1['newsTitle']; ?>" class="img-inside"/>
<?php } ?>
<?php if($row_Recordset1['newsPhoto'] =NULL && ($row_Recordset1['newsCat'] =2)) { ?>
<img src="../images/PressRelease.jpg" alt="<?php echo $row_Recordset1['newsTitle']; ?>" class="img-inside"/>
<?php } ?>
<?php if($row_Recordset1['newsPhoto'] =NULL && ($row_Recordset1['newsCat'] =3)) { ?>
<img src="../images/callouts.jpg" alt="<?php echo $row_Recordset1['newsTitle']; ?>" class="img-inside"/>
<?php } ?>
<?php if($row_Recordset1['newsPhoto'] =NULL && ($row_Recordset1['newsCat'] =4)) { ?>
<img src="../images/events.jpg" alt="<?php echo $row_Recordset1['newsTitle']; ?>" class="img-inside"/>
<?php } ?>

The database column that contains the file name if an image is uploaded is empty if no image is uploaded. The default for that column in NULL

Can you see where Im going wrong?

<img src="../images/<?php echo $row_Recordset1['newsPhoto']; ?>" alt="<?php echo $row_Recordset1['newsTitle']; ?>" width="648" height="100" class="img-inside"/>

<?php } elseif ($row_Recordset1['newsCat']=4){?>
<img src="../images/events.jpg" alt="<?php echo $row_Recordset1['newsTitle']; ?>" class="img-inside"/>
<?php } ?>


should be:
<?php if($row_Recordset1['newsPhoto'] != "") { ?>
<img src="../images/<?php echo $row_Recordset1['newsPhoto']; ?>" alt="<?php echo $row_Recordset1['newsTitle']; ?>" width="648" height="100" class="img-inside"/>
<?php } ?>
<?php if($row_Recordset1['newsPhoto'] == "") { ?>
<?php if ($row_Recordset1['newsCat']=1){?>
<img src="../images/news.jpg" alt="<?php echo $row_Recordset1['newsTitle']; ?>" class="img-inside"/>
<?php } elseif ($row_Recordset1['newsCat']=2){?>
<img src="../images/PressRelease.jpg" alt="<?php echo $row_Recordset1['newsTitle']; ?>" class="img-inside"/>
<?php } elseif ($row_Recordset1['newsCat']=3){?>
<img src="../images/callouts.jpg" alt="<?php echo $row_Recordset1['newsTitle']; ?>" class="img-inside"/>
<?php } elseif ($row_Recordset1['newsCat']=4){?>
<img src="../images/events.jpg" alt="<?php echo $row_Recordset1['newsTitle']; ?>" class="img-inside"/>
<?php } ?>
<?php } ?>
