server validation

server validation

I am trying to manually add server validation to a small form. I am following the "add server validation" tutorial and it is unclear as to what page to add the server behaviour too.. the action page or the form page? although this might seem obvious to add to the forms page I just want to check because after the "Add Form Data" instructions ( which is to the actions page ) it proceeds to the "Configure Validations" instructions bit it does not say to open the form page so it assumes to stay on the action page.. Is this correct?

Plus when adding the server behaviour it gives a syntax error in line 4

below is the code that is added.

<?php require_once("webassist/form_validations/wavt_scripts_php.php"); ?>
<?php require_once("webassist/form_validations/wavt_validatedform_php.php"); ?>
<?php
if () {
$WAFV_Redirect = "apply-for-rtm-private.php";
$_SESSION['WAVT_thankyou_936_Errors'] = "";
if ($WAFV_Redirect == "") {
$WAFV_Redirect = $_SERVER["PHP_SELF"];
}
$WAFV_Errors = "";
$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateRQ(((isset($_POST["first_name"]))?$_POST["first_name"]:"") . "",false,1);
$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateRQ(((isset($_POST["surname"]))?$_POST["surname"]:"") . "",false,2);
$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateRQ(((isset($_POST["email"]))?$_POST["email"]:"") . "",false,3);

if ($WAFV_Errors != "") {
PostResult($WAFV_Redirect,$WAFV_Errors,"thankyou_936");
}
}
?>

All form processing must be applied to the forms action page.

if the action of the form is to post to another page, then the validation server behavior should go on that other page.

the syntax error at line 4:
if () {

is because no trigger was selected. it should be something like this for any form post:
if($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST") {

you had not set an action for the form:
<form method="post" id="application_pr" name="application_pr">


by not setting the action, the form was posting to itself.

if you add the validation to the thankyou page, you must set the action to post to the thank you page:
<form method="post" id="application_pr" name="application_pr" action="thankyou.php">

Thanks Jason, I've subsequently added an 'Insert Record' behaviour and a 'Download File' behaviour but neither are working. Any idea why?

using FTP to look at the code for the thankyou.php page, i do not see the code for the insert or download behaviors

I think you just answered my query as I had applied them to the form page!

Since the action of the page is to post to the thank you page, all form processing needs to happen there.

insert record behaviour not working

Jason, I've added both 'download file' and 'insert record' behaviours and only the 'download file' is working. as well as both working I want to re-direct to the Thankyou page after submit.

Can you see what is wrong here? and why? because all I have done is add both behaviours which Im assuming is all I need to do!
