Hi Jason

Am trying to set up a search facility which displays content based on db entriers.

In the db, I have columns set up (just using a couple here to show)

PortfolioWebsite
PortfolioEcommerce
PortfolioBranding

Each column is set to be either 0 or 1 ( 0 being 'disabled' and 1 being 'enabled')

What I am trying to do is when the user selects, for example, 'Branding' from the drop down the results page fetches only content that is set to 1 in the PortfolioBranding column, or if they selected 'Web Design' from the drop down, the results would fecthg only the content set to 1 from the
PortfolioWebsite column.

Have attached basic files that I have been playing with to this effect.

Cheers

Jamie

you won't be able to do this in DataAssist Search, you will need to configure the recordset for this.

the recordset details are a bit complex to describe here, contact me through Skype and I can walk you through it.

in design view, elect the select list, then in the property inspector, click the dynamic button. click the lightning bolt next to Select value equal to and select the binding for the select list.

Try uninstalling the MySQLi server behaviors and installing it again, make sure you have the latest version.

Seams to be a bug with MySQLi server behaviors setting a dynamic Select Value Equal to when all the values are static. I will log this as a bug, here is the updated select element code with the select value equal to change made:

<select name="PortfolioSearch" onchange="this.form.submit();" style="width: 380px; height: 40px; font-size: 18px; border: none; background-color: #E74E2E; color: #fff; padding-left: 10px;">
