Databridge not inserting to database

Hello,
I'm trying to use DataAssist Pages to insert a new category into my database but after I've uploaded everything online and try to add a new category, it doesn't show any error messages but when I look in my database, it hasn't saved it to the database.

This is the code that results from DataAssist Pages:

<input id="cats_name" name="cats_name" type="text" value="<?php echo((isset($_GET["invalid"])?ValidatedField("catstblinsert","cats_name"):"")); ?>" class="formTextfield_Medium" tabindex="1">

I've tried this several times in the past but it's never worked for me. I'm running DataBridge 1.1.4

Thanks for the quick response.

I've attached the file and the page in question is in admin/cats_tbl_insert.php

Thanks again.
Liam.

There is no insert record server behavior on that page.

open the server behaviors panel and click the plus button, select webassist -> Data Assist -> Insert Record -> Insert Single record to add the insert record behavior.

Thanks, I did try that but didn't know where to place it. Should it go inside the new category text box where there is already a PHP echo?

Thanks.

the insert behavior will be placed above the doctype tag, you dont need to place the insert, that will happen automatically.

Okay, that's great. Thanks a lot.

One other thing.
Inside the dialog, it says "Store as" under "Save Inserted ID in Session" and the help documentation says "Store as: Specify the name of the session variable that the inserted record data is to be stored in."

What would I put in this? What does it mean by the name of the session variable?

Thanks,
Liam.

you can enter session name you like.

the ID of the record that is inserted will be saved in a session of the name you specify, this can be used if you are doing an insert to two diferant tables to insert related information

lets say for example you are inserting to an orders and orders details table at the same time.

you would want to relate the order to the order details.

on the insert that saves the order, you could save the ID if the order to a session named orderID

then in the insert that saves the order details, use that session in the detailsOrderId column to relate the 2 records.

That's perfect example. Thanks.

I gave it a go and something else happened. On my New Category webpage, I typed in "Test category" and submitted and then went to my database, what it's done, is it's inserted a new record but without the "Test Category" essentially leaving it blank except for the Cat_ID. What did I do wrong this time? I've attached a couple of images of my new record settings and also one of the blank database record that was created.

Thanks so much for your continued help

the cats name column is bound to a session variable, you should be using the form element.
